Jennifer Snyder here to share some whimsical Halloween shaker fun. I created two shaker cards using the darling shaker chipboard sets from Creative Embellishments.
Here is the first card. How adorable is this gnome shaker set! The fabulous little gnome can be decorated for any occasion.
I did alter the shaker set a bit to make the beard dimensional and not part of the shaker. I also opted to adjust the top shaker layer to accommodate the dimensional beard. Scroll down and I’ll show you what I did.
Below is an image of how I finished the beard using some molding /texture paste applied thickly. I actually used Aleene’s True Snow Paste for the beard because it has a hint of glitter. My photo image didn’t pick up the little glitter flecks, but in person, there is a delicate touch of shimmer in the Halloween gnome’s beard. He’s quite fetching.
And white opaque paste will work; molding paste, texture paste, etc.
After the snowy white beard dried, I assembled the shaker. I did not want the beard included as part of the shaker so I cut the top layer apart. I needed to cover the nose and cheeks – so I had to bend and shape to fit, but it worked out well. I was happy.
