This is my card for the blog hop. It is a fun, vibrate colored card! I started out taking some Tim Holtz Watercolor card stock, and I used a few colors of Distress Stains - and I applied them directly to my card stock. I added a bit of water to get the colors melding into one another, and I heat set it to speed up the drying time. I just loved how vibrate the colors turned out. I then took this piece and die cut it using some of my Framelits that I sadly do not remember the name of at the moment. I die cut also a piece of acetate, a piece of yellow patterned paper from the Let's Polka 6x6 pad from Lawn Fawn, and also a black frame using some Licorice card stock from Bazzill. I had to strategically place my foam adhesive around my die cut pieces as this is not a normal size for a shaker, but it worked out. Once I added my mm PPP Sparking Clear Sequins, I added my acetate, and then my black frame. I then adhered my shaker piece to the yellow patterned paper. I cut a piece of card stock and made my card base to be a 5 inch square card. I used a Hero Arts background stamp along with some Rose Bud Memento ink on my card base, and then die cut some black scallop borders using the LF Stitched Scallop Border Die. I adhered my shaker to my card base, and then I die cut the "Hello" sentiment using the Hello Die from LF and adhered it straight down in the middle of my shaker.
I think it turned out better that I originally imagined! Hope you having fun either participating in the hop, or just looking at all the fun shakers and getting inspiration!!
Have a great day!
