I really think this mini stamp set from Lawn Fawn is super adorable, and I thought that the wheel would make a fun shaker. I started off by stamping the wheel with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink from Imagine. I also stamped 3 hamsters on a separate piece of paper. I used 2 shades of gray Zig Clean Color markers to color in the wheel, and then using an X-Acto knife, I cut out the interior of the wheel. I also colored and die cut the hamsters.
I wanted to repeat the sentiment several times using a gradation of colors, so I pulled out my Kaleidacolor inks, also from Imagine, and decided that the Cappuccino set was going to look the best with the Flaming Sunset Sparkle Blend. I placed with sentiment into my Stamp Platform and inked it with the lightest color. Then I moved my cardstock up about 1/2" and stamped the next shade. The Kaleidacolor ink pads make it easy because of the fabulous colors. I continued this until I used all 5 colors. Then I created the actual shaker with acetate and a foam sheet.
I assembled my card on to a brown base and attached my hamsters. They are just so cute! And I think the Cappuccino ink colors worked really well with the reds, oranges and yellows of the Sparkle Blend. I can't wait to share the other new Sparkle Blends with you! They are all beautiful, and the colors are delightful. You can check them all out at White Rose Crafts LLC. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
