Pretty Tree Piccolo | Enamel Powder

Good Morning crafty peeps!!  Britt Bass here from Pink Paper Crowns!

I'm here today bringing you a pretty little shaker card using a beautiful range of products from the Piccolo line.

When I first saw this pretty floral tree image I knew I wanted to use the Piccolo Enamel Powders to add color and dimension to the shape.



I used the Piccolo Embossing Powder Adhesive and covered the entire outside edge and several of the flowers with the adhesive liquid.  I applied Shamrock Dreams Enamel Powder and heat set it.  I repeated that method with Mardi Gras Enamel Powder and Copper Kettle Enamel Powder to cover the rest of the tree.  I finished the tree with dots of metallic pearl paint around the edges - and set it aside to dry.



I die cut an A2 sized frame out of brown glitter cardstock and layered in on top of the soft brown snowflake paper.  After the tree was completely dry, I used it to trace a window in the middle of the snowflake paper, cut it out and fit the tree into the window.

I attached clear transparency to the back of the piece, making sure to cover all the little openings in the tree, and then used foam adhesive to create a well for my shaker.  

I filled the shaker with brown seed beads from my stash and Sugar Beads from the Sweet Stamps store.  (I wish I had used a few sequins or confetti to make the shaker a little more obvious, but there's always next time!)  Lastly, I adhered the whole front piece to an A2 cardbase and added a brown satin bow!

I had SUCH fun working with these products and I can't wait to break out my Piccolos again!  Take a look at the Sweet Stamps store for tons of pretty and intricate shapes like this!

Have a wonderful weekend queenies!
Later!
