CFC183 - Shaker Cards

Happy Friday crafty friends! I am so excited another summer weekend in-store for us in Montreal. Fitting as I travel to Edmonton for work next week and it snowed there this week...eek!

And it's time for another fun Cas-ual Friday's Challenge! This week we are focusing on shaker cards!


I used the fantastic new Mermaids stamp set for this one! Love these new products by CAS-ual Friday's.  I started by masking my "ground" with 2 inch PostIt tape and used a mix off Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks for the water. I then used a Hero Arts waves stencil and went over it again with the same colors only with a more intense application.  

I then switched the mask to do the bottom in Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks and added some dot detail with my Gathered Twigs Distress Marker and my white gel pen.

I then took my Misti out and lined up my Mermaid, sentiment (which I cut for placement) and the accessories from the Mermaids stamp set and stamped them all in Versafine Onyx Black ink. I added a bit of shimmery gel pen detail on the mermaid and the accessories. 

I lined the sides with 3m foam tape and filled it with Hero Arts Ocean sequins. Once the card was put together I added some red hearts from Fun-Fetti on top.

Join us at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog for the chance to win $25 worth of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and, drum roll please... Michelle with double the prize if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps!
