Having another opportunity to be a guest designer for a challenge is exciting and somewhat scary at the same time. Creating something that may inspire others is a challenge all on its own. Upon thinking about this I decided to use my gilding flakes to create a background because the colours in mine remind me of fall. I used a sticky sheet to add the flakes and then cut the piece down to the size I required. I also wanted to try a small shaker and used a bottle die and insert from MFT. I die cut the opening and inserted the bottle shape into the opening. It was filled with leaves stamped onto some inked CS and most of them fussy cut, and I backed it with a scrap piece of vellum so it was sealed. The bottle comes with a stopper and I die cut several layers in dark brown gluing them together before adding to the bottle. The frame was cut using an old die but which brand and model I no longer remember. I cut several and stacked them together to get a bit of dimension and stability before adding it to the card front. The two larger leaves and sentiment are from an older GKD set called stitched leaves. Sentiment was cut from the same gilded flake layer left over and added to the black shadow layer. I went over the larger leaves with a gold pen where the dots were for added interest. My shaker is a bit tight, but the leaves do move if the card is shaken. As so often happens the photo doesn’t really do the card justice as it is quite vibrant in R.L. Thanks for spending time with me today.
