Greetings! This week, the White Rose Crafts Team is “Embracing our Embellish-mental Side.” So we are focusing on things like Sparkle Blends, buttons, Nuvo Drops, etc. I decided to focus on one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground, called Vixen. Be sure to read to the bottom for a special notice!
I was really inspired by one of the Sugar Skulls from Dovecraft. There are 3 styles available, and the price is under $2! Although there are a lot of details on this skull, it was quick to color up. I used my Zig Clean Color Markers.
I fussy cut the Sugar Skull out, and chose one of my many backgrounds made with Distress Oxide Inks that I had in my stash. It was made with the “Ink Smooshing” technique with Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, and Peacock Feathers. I used a die from Elizabeth Crafts Designs to cut out my window.
For my card base, I rubbed Wilted Violet Distress Oxide around all 4 edges, and then dripped water on to it to get it to oxidize. Then, I added a piece of cardstock from Lemoncraft’s Fresh Summer to serve as my background for my shaker window. As I mentioned earlier, I used Vixen Sparkle Blend for the shaker. This Blend had purples, pinks, blues, and lots of opalescence, so it went perfectly with my Oxide background. I adhered a few sequins to the background so that there would always be some sequins showing. I opted to leave off a sentiment, so that when I decide to mail this card, I can choose what would be appropriate then.
I love the detail in the Dovecraft Sugar Skulls. And they are a great size to work with. And of course almost anything looks good with a shaker!
