Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Hop - Color Crush!
Hi crafty friends! The Brutus Monroe Inspiration team is blog hopping today, and it's using this picture for color inspiration!
These colors are soooo gorgeous, and being an Arizona girl, I love the succulents! I decided to stick with the cooler blue and purple tones for my shaker card.
I started by blending surface inks in the colors "Eggplant", "Sea" and "Speckled Egg" on a panel of Alabaster cardstock. These colors are going out of stock at the moment, but not to fear! Rumor has it that there are new colors to be unveiled at some point! I then took one of the new laser-cut mandalas and sliced it into 4 equal pieces with my paper trimmer. I squished embossing ink directly from the ink pad all over the surface of the mandala, and then coated it with Eggplant embossing powder. After heat-setting it, I did one more layer of embossing ink and embossing powder. I die cut two rectangle frames from Alabaster cardstock, and sandwiched the mandala between them, and then stuck a piece of transparency on the back. I lined the frame with foam tape and sprinkled clear and white sequins to form the shaker. I stuck the mandala frame over the top and the shaker was complete! I stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the "Super Sentimental" stamp set onto Alabaster cardstock in Eggplant surface ink. I trimmed it down into a banner shape and adhered it to the card with foam tape.
Have you tried the new mandalas yet? I loved coating it with embossing powder! There are so many possibilities with them!
