First of all …Whatcha think of my new Blog Header?
I LOVE it! I have to give all the credit to my wonderful son Ty!
I thought it was time for a change and he has some great Photo Shop skills
and last night he whipped this up for me in no time…he has some
more things he wants to add to it…but I love it just the way it is!
Love you Ty!!!!
Onto the real reason your here!
Over at Just Us Girls this week Lisa is shakin’ things up!
Have you ever made a Shaker Card? I have NOT!
I so enjoyed this challenge and as I told Lisa and the girls earlier,
my first shaker crashed and burned! I had the bright idea to use
saw dust instead of sand because I didn’t have enough time to
go get any ( yes I know, I live in Florida and didn’t use sand). LOL
The saw dust looked just like fine sand…really! Anyhoo, The sawdust was so fine and
I didn’t leave enough of a gap between the shaker and the image so my cute little penguin
was camouflaged….you couldn’t even see her. I tried again and followed the
directions from This Tutorial to a tee…and used glitter instead and it worked like a charm!
FYI…….sawdust doesn’t work for sand!
I love the way this card came together….perseverance is the Key!
The waves were made with my Creative Memories cutting system and
the sun I just eyeballed with a small paper cutter and a little Tim Holtz distress ink!
Coloring was done with colored pencil.
Add a little torn paper for some sand and there you have it!
I am also adding this card to the Case Study Challenge this week.
This fabulous photo is what helped me get the idea for my sun!
Now it’t time to go check out what the other Girls have shakin up!
Have a great day!
