I need to SEA YOU SOON - Always Fun Challenges #74

Monday September 3, 2018
Hello and welcome back to another fun challenge at
our theme this week is SHAKER CARD
Ok so I seldom do shaker cards because they SCARE ME!!. I never know what to do and how to make them work.. I think I have done maybe 3 .. well if that is right .. here is #4.. I started by cutting the frames first.. You can hardly see the light green one as it blends in with the background. So I cut a blue one and added this to the scene. I used Ranger inks and blended the background in the shaker card area.. I added some water spots. I then used Stampin up ink and stamped the tiny fish and there is some coral and sea grass but the beads are covering this area. I then stamped the fish which were colored with Ranger inks and cut them out. All of the images are from My favorite things.. I adhered them down. I then completed the shaker sandwich .. added some sequins, micro beads and closed it up and added to the designer paper. I stamped and colored the seagulls and added them along with the sentiment. I do like but not planning on making another for awhile.. my brain hurts.. LOL
