Craft Roulette - Leaf Shaker

I like to play song with the Craft Roulette challenge each weekend - here is the info for the current challenge which is open until Sunday evening. 

This week, the challenge parameters at Craft Roulette are as follows: 

- circle(s)

- orange plus two other colours 

- plant(s)

- stencil 

It looks like a lot but it really isn't that difficult... aside from the fact that orange is not my first choice of go-to colours! 

Orange works very well with blue so I decided to use turquoise and add silver as my third colour. 

The background was inked using two blue shades of Distress Oxide inks. I then placed a Cricut cut stencil on top and covered that with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink. While the stencil was still on the paper, I spread Moon Dust Glitter Gel on top. Although that product is clear, it takes on the colour of the ink so here, it turned a silver colour. That piece was then set aside to dry.

In the meantime, I stamped two leaves and coloured them in a two-tone colour scheme. They were die cut and the shaker was also assembled. The inside of the shaker is a piece of silver foil paper and the sequins are all orange, turquoise and silver. I stamped a small sentiment as well. 

Once the background piece was dry, I adhered some adhesive foam to the back and die cut it. The shaker was then embedded in the card front. I added the other elements, tied a bow at the top of the leaves, brushed the leaf centres with the Clear Shimmer Brush and added a few enamel gems.
