Hang In There With Sparkle Blends!
Hi Everyone! It's Judy. Do you love pandas as much as I do? Then this new sequin mix called You're Pand-tastic is for you! And this time I did a little something different. Check it out!
So I decided to create a full panel shaker. This project uses no foam tape so for mailing it does have a slimmer profile. I started with a cloud stencil from C C Designs called, Cloud Stencil. I used Catherine Pooler Fiesta Blue Ink with my blending brushes to create the sky. Next I used a Die-namics Die from My Favorite Things called Scenic Safari. What I did was use this die to cut a sheet of paper to create a stencil for my grass layers. Then using Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey Ink and my blending brush I created the grassy part of the background. Then I used a stamp set from Whimsy Stamps called Panda Butt, and the matching die set which is also the same name for my trees, panda, and sentiment. For the trees and sentiment I stamped with Catherine Pooler Eucalyptus, Lime Rickey and Garden Party, and used Copics R20, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9 and 100. I also used green metallic cardstock with an embossing folder from Darice called Vine Background.
Now here is the fun part. I cut my layer of acetate so that it was an inch larger in both directions than the panel with the scene. I then scored it to be the same size as the panel. I then used Scor Tape on the back of the panel and peeled the of the side of tape, adhering the acetate to the panel on three sides.
I then added my shaker mix and sealed the last side. I then attached this layer to the metallic green layer and finally attached the whole thing to the card base. I really adore how this came out, and check out all the fun elements in this mix, like those cute panda faces!!!!!
