Shakin' Showers

Hi girls
The Tiddly Ink challenge is to make a SHAKER CARD using one of their fabulous images, so I chose this one.

I cut out the circle, for the shaker part, in the middle using my brand new circle cutter from We R Memory Keepers and then mounted acetate over the top of the circle on the inside.  Then I added foam pads all around the edge of the circle, making sure that none of the pads could be seen from the outside of the card (that would just look tacky!!!) and then I added some little silver and red confetti hearts and some beads.

I coloured my TI image with Promarkers; Cardinal Red, Poppy, Ivory, Blush, Umber, Cocoa and Cinnamon. I also used a little Pastel Blue on the puddle but you can't really see that very clearly because the sentiment is positioned over the top. The sentiment is from Create with TLC and was a freebie.

I then mounted the picture on the inside over the top of the foam pads and stuck it  tightly down with DSST so that it couldn't be removed (else all the bits and bobs would fall out...doh!) and finished it off with some red card candi from Craftwork Cards.

Hope you like my card.

If you have never made a Shaker Card before and would like to give it a go, pop over to the Tiddly Inks Blog as they have a really fabulous tutorial there. Thanks for stopping by.
