Trying Out Queen & Co. Products

Recently, I had the opportunity to try out some new Queen & Co. products for making shaker elements on cards, boxes, tags, etc.  For the background of this card I used a Hero Arts stencil and Distress Inks.  This photo looks a bit washed out because I was trying not to get the glare on the acetate.  The flower shape is a foam cut out that comes with the acetate in a set from Queen & Co.  Although, it was quick and easy to assemble the shaker, I had a problem with the static on the little Styrofoam balls.  Maybe I should have rubbed the acetate film with a dryer sheet first.  I did like the double-sided adhesive words in the Queen & Co. sets; but because they were clear, it was a bit of a challenge to line them up.  I used the fine glitter on the words and decorated the flower frame with the glitter too.
 This photo of a tag made with the same stenciled paper shows up the colors better.  I like making tags as practice pieces.  The double sided adhesive flowers were colored with the Queen & Co. flocking.  I enjoyed testing out these products because it was like playing with candies. Don't you just love the luscious colors? Hope you'll checkout these sweet new products at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.
