The next challenge I did was to make a shaker card, but to frame it with stamping, I don't think I have ever done that before and I almost forgot that point when I was making it, I had a nice paper picked out for the background and then remembered I was suppose to do some stamping around it, so I went back to my papers and found one that had a small amount of pattern at the top and some faint lines, I didn't want it to be a white background, all the rest is my stamping.
I first started out with my stamped image, I think it is suppose to be a spring image but I made it a little more fall like. After coloring it with my markers I went to my set of shaped foam pieces I bought a few years back to make shakers and found one that was about the size of my image and then found a circle die that was about that same size and to make my shaker frame I used another circle scallop with it to make the frame. I laid that down on my paper and lightly traced the die so I knew where to stamp around. Those are the very first stamps I ever bought.
I used my distress inks as watercolor to color in the image.
Art Impressions - Memories window stamp, colored w/distress inks
Queen & co. - Pop ups for shaker
Spellbinder - circle and big scalloped circle dies for frame
Stampin up - Leaves 1997 stamp set
Sentiment - unknown
Hard to see the shaker items so I took a side view picture.
This shaker card went the best I have ever done so I am hopeful that they are getting easier to do the more I do them.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
