Morning ladies....

I boobed with this card and couldn't rectify it (I haven't given up though)!  I've used some of the elements in the Tonic Craft Kit 12 and intended to add the gorgeous copper, texture paper behind the shaker, don't know what I was thinking and ended up applying a lighter colour card with the back of it, being white, showing in the shaker!

I used one of the shaker blisters, the gold sequins, green sequins from last month's kit, the two sentiments, both leaf stamps and all of the leaf die cuts, finally I added the shimmer to the leaves using the NUVO shimmer brushes, the gold from this month's kit and the green from last months

I stamped and heat embossed both sentiments using WOW Embossing Powder in Metallic Bronze

TOP TIP:  when making a shaker card, firstly, don't forget to rub your anti-static tool/pad around the inside of the blister and, if you have any micro beads and about a level teaspoon or just under, to the inside.  Doing this will stop most, if not all, of the contents from sticking to the plastic 

I've enlarged this shot so that you can see the subtle effect using the shimmer brushes

Until tomorrow (I am going to see if I can do something to rectify the 'boob')

June ~x~
