Fishy Friends Shaker Card

Earlier this week, my Aunt Roberta came over and we spent the afternoon stamping. We had a great time! She brought her Fishy Friends set because I had an idea I thought we could try.

First we stamped the fish images in black Stazon ink on Whisper White card stock, then colored them using water color pencils and our aqua painters. After we got our fish colored the way we wanted, we covered them with Crystal Effects so that they looked wet and shiny.

The coluzzle template was used to cut the circle from the teal mat, which was the final layer of our shaker card. We used foam mounting tape to create the space and adhere our window sheet and mat, but before we attached these we put some clear beads and glitter inside. This card looks so much cuter in real life because you can see how shiny the fish are and also just how sparkly the inside is from the glitter!

This is a fun card, but it would also make a really cool element on a scrapbook page too, wouldn't it? I love using the Spot On wheel inked in white to create bubbles, and I think it makes the perfect background for this card. Have a great weekend!
