Pick n Mix


Today's card is a shaker card for a little girl whose birthday is coming soon  The post title refers to two things: firstly the fabulous bright papers I used are from the Trimcraft First Edition Pick and Mix pad I won last week and, secondly, I have used a real mix of products on this card.

The fox and bear (along with the balloon and cute party hats) come from the Lawn Fawn die and stamp set, Party Animal. This was another of my lucky wins last week. I had admired their products for a while, so I was excited to play with these. I'm happy to say both the stamps and dies are fabulous to use.

I have coloured the stamps using Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I have had these a while but only used them on Christmas cards. However, I watched Leann Chivers on Hochanda at the weekend and decided to try my pens more often. The bear has just been coloured directly but for the fox I wanted a less vibrant orange so blended the colour with a wet brush. 

Finally I cut some of the Pick n Mix paper using a Crafter's Companion Die'sire die.

Full list of Spectrum Noir Sparkle colours:
Solar Red, Harvest Moon, Smoked Quartz, Pink Garnet, Aquamarine, Clear
