HELLO!!
I'm stopping in to share the FUN Shaker Styled Card I've made for the February Paper Trey Ink Challenge Blog Hop!! I wanted to make a FUN card for one of my SWEETEST Friends!! She is just AMAZING and has a New Granddaughter so I thought I'd make her an Easter Card and one it is a FUN Little Felt Bow for her Granddaughter to wear!! =) It's a SURPRISE so I HOPE she LOVES it!! =) SQUEAL!! I used the Paper Trey Ink Cover Plate: Quatrefoil Die and the Water Coloring as my Inspiration from the Challenge Photo!! I changed the colors just alittle so it would coordinate with my SWEET Little Chick Felt Bow and I LOVE the Rainbow look that I got!! =) That is one think I like about this technique you NEVER know what you'll end up with and each one is UNIQUE!! I used Distress Inks and Water on Tim Holtz Distress Water Color Paper and I just LOVE the way the colors Blend and how you can add LOTS of water to soften the colors or leave them as is for a Darker shade!! =) SO MANY OPTIONS!! I used the Seasonal Stitching: Birds Die Collection and instead of leaving him flat, I cut two layers of everything from Paper Trey Ink Limeade Ice Felt and made him a Puffy Bird!! I just LOVE the way it turned out and have made SEVERAL of these in different colors to give away!! =) I then used the Leaves Die from the Paper Trey Ink Song Birds Die Set and the Thanks Die Cut is from the Wet Paint Words Die Set!! I didn't want this to be too in your face so I used a Chalkboard Grey Paper and then it need some bulk to hold its own against that Chick and the Leaves so I Die Cut it 5 Times and layered them altogether and I LOVE the way it came together and I hope you do too!!??



THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
