A Romantic Shaker for JAI#394 - #useitup #1

Just Add Ink this week have the challenge of Just adding Romance.

I have been trying to use up some of the many half packs of product I have accumulated and  the bits and bobs on my desktop. - my personal challenge to #useitup. This includes a few packs of Memories and More cards
Today I have used up one of the cards, some sequins, some gold foil washi and a gold glimmer strip of hearts.
The card is in the gorgeous Mint Macaron (my favourite green - so sad that it's retired) in an ombre style and I just loved the sentiment  - Fall in Love with Moments.  I was not going to be able to easily cover the width of the opening with the card so I opted instead to cut out the circle and adhere that to the card base inside the shaker.

I created this shaker card and used the Amazing You stamp set in the Sale a Bration Catalogue. 

The flower was heat embossed in gold on crumb cake and painted with Berry Burst using my blender pen. Since I've already cut my stamp I was easily able to stamp the leaves separately.  A little bit of gold thread and a rhinestone bling and I'm swooning already!

You might be able to see a few of the glimmer hearts in the shaker elements too, and I always add some mini beads for a bit more weight when shaking.

The inside just has a bit of leaf stamping and a strip of gold foil - also from the bits and bobs stash!



I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"
cheers, Liz
