Inspiration Wednesday with MCT

Two posts today again. Scroll to the next post to see another embossing paste project. Thank you!

Welcome to Inspiration Wednesday. Today's creation was inspired by a lovely black and white card I saw on pinterest. I used washi tape instead of ribbon scraps for the circle design behind my "Love" word. 

Below is the piece the inspired me. I love the way the scraps of ribbon were used behind the open circle, and used that idea on my shaker with the washi tape. The black and white is striking, I love it!, and I may have to do one like that at some point too.

For my Valentine version I used the word "love". The font is called Zapfino Linotype One and probably came on your computer. If you don't have that one, there is a copycat font called Sloop Script Three that is a free download. Flowers are mini primas (sorry, folks. These I did not make myself.) Shaker filler is glass seed beads and heart confetti in red and gold, with a few lips thrown in. LOL

Inside sentiment is from My Creative Time, 100% Sweetness stamp set.

And for the curious, this is the back side of the shaker. Easy peasy!

Be inspired, crafty friends, and keep the mojo going! Thanks for stopping today. Come back again tomorrow for Thrifty Thursday. ♥
