I have a shaker card for you this week which I think is quite fun. I've stamped "Daisy May" 3 times using Versafine Onyx Black; first onto the lemon gingham, then onto the yellow & green dotty papers. I then cut out the centre off the print on the gingham base with a craft knife & coloured the rest of the flower with Koi pens.I cut the green flower head to place under the flower aperture & also cut out the leaves to paper piece over the stamped leaves. Finally I cut the flower petals from the yellow dotty paper. I used clear, narrow foam tape to form a sealed oval centre on the green flower head & attached a piece of acetate under the flower printed on the gingham. I placed the seed beads in the centre of the green flower before carefully lining up the gingham layer to go over the top. The beads should be fully encapsulated in the centre of the flower now. I coloured the under side of the yellow dotty flower & curled the petals upwards with a DEET before attaching to the flower. To finish I have layered onto the green & yellow card & printed the sentiment before attaching to the card blank. Some broken lines with a Micron pen & the Card Candi add the finishing touches.
