Challenge 39 - Teach Me - Shaker
I had many first for me on this card. This was the first time I used a Spellbinder (let me tell you I bought a bunch and am so happy I did! Love it and it is so much easier then pulling out my Cricut for things.)
It is the first time I used chalk to fill in the back ground, Although hard to see in the picture it really did make a difference not being all white. The last first as I stated before this was the first time I did a shaker card.
The choice is always so hard every week and then you always hope that you don't do the same one everyone else is doing, but when I heard shaker and took a look I knew that I was for sure going to try it with Take Me Away . I thought that it would be fun to do something with bubbles!
I colored my digital stamp with Copic markers, which as I use them more; I can't imagine how I ever colored stamps in before them. I just love how well they blend, and although when you take a picture the colors never look as great as they really do, you can see how high quality they are.
I purchased 2 different sizes of clear iridescent beads to give the feel of different size bubbles.
The last thing I am going to say about the shaker card is that it is so hard to take a picture of. I had to do it from a angle, but it turned out okay. I hope you all enjoy me attempt this week.
