Shaker sunset

I'm on a roll!
Here's another card I made over the weekend. I'd like to also enter this one in the Virginia's view Challenge.
All the colouring was done with distress inks and ink blending tools. The dies used were from Simon Says Stamp (circle and rectangle) and Lawn Fawn (Stitched hillside borders).
This card was much easier to make as I had a clearer idea of what I wanted.
Hope you enjoy it!


Shaker cards

Hi all!
With a busy start to a new job, I've not had much time for cardmaking, but a challenge on Virginia's View Challenge got me into the craft room, and busy.
I've made a watercolour shaker card using the Mama Elephant Peek a Frame die, and some bright blue fun foam. I'm really hoping to get some white, but that's all they had at my little country town.
I painted a panel using distress inks and a paintbrush, then cut the window and foam using the die, and scissors. The acetate is a piece left over from doing up a doll's house with my dad.
I then raided my daughter's seed bead stash and my own sequins, and filled the six windows. This was my first attempt at a shaker card, and I like the result, although I can already see places where I can make things easier for myself.
Hope you enjoy it too.
