Shaker ATC for Tuesday Taggers

Happy Tuesday everyone.

The challenge this week at Tuesday Taggers is Trees, the autumnal colours in the trees around where I live is absolutely stunning at the moment, especially when the sun is shining through them, but my tree here looks as if it would be right at home in Narnia....lol....where it is always winter but never Christmas!!!

I have made shaker ATCs like this before, but thought this was a good opportunity to revisit this very tactile little gem.

The tree image has been stamped in silver brilliance ink onto black glossy card and heat set, I have used glass seed beads for the filling and the textured window frame has been made by glueing tiny broken pieces of pasta ribbons onto the card with PVA and then painting with black acrylic paint. When the black paint was dry I dry brushed over it with some silver acrylic to get the frosty effect.

I can feel a series of these little shaker trees coming on.......all four seasons......watch this space!!
