True Love Shaker

Hi there. Usually I steer clear of Valentine cards and 'Love' cards.  We like to show our love in other ways in our household.  However, I seem to have accumulated lots of heart related products, so what's a girl to do!

This one is a watercolour and shaker card.
I used acrylic inks and water and a bit of smooshing to create the background. The stamps are from Papertrey Ink.

Whenever I make a shaker card, I think of my friend Jenny Dix of Jennifer D's Blog - she is the queen of shakers and encouraged me to keep on trying, when I was ready to give up on shakers.  Check out this amazing card Jenny made.

I was very tempted to add more to this card, but I'm trying to create more CAS cards and so I made myself stop! What do you think? Maybe a bit of black twine or ribbon?

I'm entering the following challenges:-



  1. I Looooove your shaker card with the beautiful water coloured background. I'm sure glad you didn't give up. :) Your cards have been just STUNNING I have seen comming through FB and Instagram. Looking forward to the next one :)
