It's time for my last Leading Lady post for Winnie & Walter, I have really enjoyed making my posts, coming up with all the themes and most of all I have loved getting all the sweet comments from all of you. I want to thank the very sweet Shay for inviting me to be Leading Lady, I've looked forward to October for months.
So for my last post I saved my favourite theme, shaker cards. I really love making shaker cards, they always makes the card a bit special and fun and you get the moving element that is always a treat. And the sound, I love shaking them around. I'm such a child!
I knew right away I wanted to use the big jewel cutaway for a shaker. I would have used all of the cutaways for shakers but I think you would have been bored after a while. Anyways, back to the wonderful big diamond. I backed it with glitter paper to make it sparkle a lot. The detailing is also cut from glitter paper. I got a big pack by Crafters Companion containing glitter, shiny foil and matte foil in gold and I really want to use it on everything now. It's so pretty. I'm getting all the colors when they are back in stock. I really hope glitter won't get out of fashion because I will probably have enough for a lifetime soon, because I hoard… um… collect… it.
The background is made using distress inks and I wanted it to match the sequin mix named after adorable Walter (for those of you who don't know this, Winnie and Walter are cute little dogs). I mixes in some mica powder in water and splattered all over to make it shine even more.
For more shakers go to the Winnie & Walter blog and see my Leading Lady post for today. But first remember to leave a comment on this or any of my other Leading Lady post on my blog for a chance to win the gift card I have been given to give to one of you. It's a $30 certificate to the Winnie & Walter shop (not including shipping and handling) so you can get some of your favourite stamps or cutaways. Yay, right? I will select a winner next Saturday, Nov 5. I will be away on a crafting event all weekend so I will pop in and select the winner when I have a chance and announce it here in the blog.
I hope you have enjoyed my posts and will come back again for my regular posts. I haven't been blogging as I normally do this month due to working a lot but I will get back to my normal 2-3 posts per week again soon. Promise! And we are getting faster internet so I might start to make a few videos for my YouTube channel again, it takes so many hours to upload it now so I haven't really bothered to make them for a while now. I have some tutorials at the Spectrum Noir channel and blog though if you are interested.
In November I'll also join the 30 days coloring challenge, hosted by Kathy Racoosin (I hope I spelled that right) of The Daily Marker. So if you follow me on instagram (@miffot) you can see what I do there. I love the challenge, you should really take part if you haven't before.
Have a lovely weekend now and see you soon again I hope!
