I made this for WT175, Spice it Up.
I immediately thought of a shaker card, all those lovely little spices like mustard seeds, cumin and so on.
I used black onion seeds.
The big flower punch is from Woodware, I used a circle cutter to cut out the centre, and sponged around both the edges of the circle and the edges of the petals with ColorBox Pigment Magenta. I used some fun foam to make the box, and a bit of thin copier acetate for the window. The greeting behind the seeds is Happy Birthday, stamped with the same magenta ink.
The leaves are Rhonna Farrer flourishes stamped with ColorBox Chalk Warm Green. I went over them with a Sakura Glaze clear pen. I added a border with a Marvy Marker.
I'm canvassing opinions as to whether to leave the butterfly on or take it off - it's on with temporary adhesive at the moment and all opinions welcome :-).
All papers are Basic Grey Euphoria.
