Hello Everyone!!! Yesterday I was talking to my friend Mandi who had recently made a shaker card and I had to admit that I'd never done one myself! I know, it's one of those things that I said I'd get to 'one day'. Well I decided to challenge myself to actually make one and was inspired by this week's SCS Inspiration Challenge by an adorable pinafore! :)
Don't forget that the CopicOz challenge to do some feathering is closing soon - come join us for the chance to win a FABULOUS prize!!!! :)
I started with the scene I was going to create and used Copics and a baby wipe to create the 'grass', airbrushed the sky and drew in a few little flowers with my multiliner. I then stamped this sweet Sarah Kay image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics. I cut her out and popped her up on top of my scene. The frame was created by cutting a back panel of white and the green top panel with the Label 17 Nestabilities. Behind the green panel I've added a piece of acetate and before I adhered it with foam tape, I added some Sweet Pea Flower Soft as my 'Shaker' pieces. Once all this was done I started putting the card together, starting with a base of Old Olive and layered with white and some Kaisercraft Wish Upon DP. (It's actually Christmas paper, but I thought it was perfect for this card.) Now I could have used my sewing machine to stitch around the edge, but since I have a dubious relationship with my sewing machine, I decided on faux stitching which I did with my .3 Black Multiliner. Then I added a skinny panel of pink bazzill and topped with some white satin ribbon. I then placed my shaker over the top. To finish off, I used three Kaisercraft white flowers and airbrushed them, layered them and topped with a pearl that was coloured with a Copic Marker.
