Hope you are well and happy! Sorry for having been a stranger lately; I have had some busy weeks but hope to be back on track soon!
I've been invited to be the Guest Designer this week at 7 Kids College Fund, that's so sweet of you ladies! So this is the card I made on this special occasion. It has been a bit difficult to come up with a card following a sketch, I'm not good at that, although the sketch is fabulous:) So the theme for this week challenge is both a sketch and a beach theme, the latter being optional though. So I tried to follow the rules and came with this shaker card.
Shaker cards are so fun to make. One of these days I shall post a tutorial; just looking for some spare time:) Initially I had in mind adding sand in the inside but acetate and sand don't work well together and the sand blurs the image:(. So I went for some gold little bits and I like the result.
And a photo taken in the sun:)
This Sarah Kay image is one of my favorite ever and I really looked forward for a chance to ink it up again:) I used Rich Cocoa Memento ink for once; it just seemed to me more appropriate for this sea background. Those seashells came all the way from Punta Cana about 3 years ago...lol. I added some dimensional glaze and I just love the way they shine! The foam on the water is some white acrylic paint and Twinklets Diamond Dust. All the edges are distressed with vintage photo DI.
