AH 396 - Someone Special Shaker

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #396!

It is a horizontal sketch this week but that could certainly be rotated to create a project in portrait mode. 

I have had some Kaisercraft papers here for quite a while and I always forget to check in my extra papers to see what I have... these papers are from the Morning Dew collection and they are just gorgeous! 

The centre section was perfect for a shaker so I cut a section of one of the patterned papers to show a selection of flowers. There was just enough room in the top corner to stamp a sentiment, which I did using Espresso ink. The inner frame was cut using the same colour of cardstock. The outer frame was cut using Lagoon cardstock to coordinate with the outside paper. I cut a similar flower using the Flower Market Cricut collection. Using Mink, Mint and Pewter inks, I shaded and outlined the flower to look like the ones inside the shaker. Three gems were applied in the centre of the flower and I used a stylus on the leaves to create some dimension. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.
