So today I have a fun shaker card. It started with a bit of watercolor background I created using all of the various blues I had. I thought it looked very oceany. So I stamped a palm tree with a bit of island. I water colored the tree with my new Daniel Smith watercolors. There is a little shaker building pic on my Instagram.
For the frame I used some Spellbinders dies and acetate. The frame was cut from white cardstock which I stamped with a Leaf from the same set as the Palm Tree, retired Stampin Up - Do the Hula. The leaves are stamped with Distress Ink Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint.
I created a foam tape shaker box and added some Seashore Micro Beads and a few blue and green sequins. I did get a bit carried away with the Seashore Beads. Eeeep you can no longer see my little Island I painted a lovely sandy color. Oh well it's still cute. The word Adventure is cut from my newest super deal the Tim Holtz Adventure Thinlets. I got these at Hobby Lobby last week for $7 that's almost 60% off YAY!!! I love a bargain I end up using right away! The blue twine or Caribbean is from the Twinery. I ordered a bunch of solids with some friends awhile ago it's about time I used some. The card base is a dark Kraft.
WOW this was a wordy post.... Sorry about that. Thank you so much for coming by to visit. I really appreciate it! Hope your having a Wonderful Week!
