Hi, there! Today I am here with a card (without a video, sorry!) for the Fall 2016 Release Blog Hop from The Ton. I made a pinecone shaker card with the brand new Holiday Cones set and I paired it up with the Hey Foxy set.


Be sure to keep on reading until the end of this blog post for more information on the blog hop order and the giveaways!

img_1619For my card, I decided to do some emboss resist watercoloring with the Holiday Cones stamp set. I heat embossed the second layer of the pinecones with white embossing powder on some Canson Watercolor Paper. Next, I applied lots of water to my watercolor paper to get the colors moving afterwards. I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors to create an ombré and splashed watercolored paper. For the brown ombré, I used no. 47. I also applied some copper flicks of paint with no. 90.

img_1622I simply couldn’t resist making another shaker card! I filled up my sequin shaker with the Rose Gold Couture Mix from The Ton along with some of the Gold Matte sequins. These gold matte sequins look so lovely with the watercolored background. I watercolored the fox from the Hey Foxy set with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I like to use Bristol Paper and a Pentel Aquash brush for a blended look. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the Basic Labels stamp set in Dark Roast ink and adhered it on top of the shaker. Easy! 🙂
