Christmas Tweetings Shaker

Here I am back again and I'm sorry but I just can't stop making shaker cards!!  😂😂😂 I'm going to blame the industry as it's very much promoting them right now and I'm falling for it.  ha ha ha!! 

My sweet image is from Christmas Tweetings and I coloured her up with my Prismacolour pencil crayons.  I added some Snow-Tex then Stickles glitter to her pom pom and hat then, popped her up on my shaker using some dimensional dots.  Behind my shaker, I've used a piece of design paper from the new Christmas Blessings 6"x 6" paper pad.  

To get the background in the shaker, I covered my paper using Distress Ink "Weathered Wood" for my background colour then let it dry.  I covered that piece with the "Christmas Trees" layering stencil and coloured it using the "Picket Fence" distress ink so I could get a decent white base behind the glitter I'm using in my next layer.  I thought if I covered the weathered wood background I had, the glitter gel might not come through as solid as I wanted. 

After my picket fence distress ink dried, I added the glitter gel to the stencil.

The sentiment is also from the super cute Christmas Tweetings stamp collection.  I've cut the strip and then curled it with a pencil to give it more dimension.  I glued the right side of the strip but then added a dimensional foam dot under "YOU" for even more dimension cuz that's what I'm all about.  Texture and dimension!  😀💕

I hope this little post gives you some idea's on how to use the new stencils in the shop because they are sooooooooooo awesome!!  Do you like using stencils when you create?

Thanks for stopping by today!
