Ocean Water Shaker Card w/ Paper Smooches and PPP Sequins!!

Pin It


I'm stopping in to share a REALLY FUN Water Shaker Card Concept that I have been working on for about 2 Weeks!! I'm joining the FUN over on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog for the Water Color Blog Hop!! I wanted to see if I could make an Ocean Water Shaker Card using actual Water and I FINALLY Figured out a way to do it!! YIPPEE!! So I'm here to share how I did it and I hope you'll give it a try and maybe even play around with the Concept/Idea yourself and see if there are any other ways to create/use tis FUN Idea for our Ocean/Water themed Cards!! =) I started by using the Paper Smooches Briny Blue Stamp Set!! I stamped my Scene using Distress Markers on some Distress Water Color Paper to stamp my Solid Images and then I used a Water Brush to Water Color them!! Then I colored over them with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker and added some WoW Detail Clear Embossing Powder and Embossed all of my Images!! By doing this is makes it so I DON'T have to create Masks for ALL of my Images when I go to add my Distress Inked Background!! I used Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks for my Ocean and then added Drops of Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers along with Water and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I then used my Food Saver Machine to Seal some Distilled Water, Glycerin, Glitter, Distress Stain in both Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio and some Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Irridescent Bermuda Blue Sequins!! I also added a few Mini Sequins from my stash and I just LOVE the look!! To finish off the Card Front I've Die Cut a Flag from the Paper Smooches Flag Tags Die Set along with a Tiny Heart from the Paper Smooches Tiny Hearts Die Set that I Water Colored and covered with Wink of Stella Glitter and WoW Embossing Powder to make it match the Scene!! I stamped my Sentiment also from the Briny Blue Stamp Set and added it with some Foam Tape!! I found that using the Glycerin instead of just the Plain Water really makes it more thick so when trying to use it for the Front of a Card it Holds its shape better!! It's ALOT like making a Snow Globe only your sealing it in a Bag instead of putting it in a Jar!! =) I've also made a QUICK Video just to share!! I hope you ENJOY IT!! I sure had FUN Making it!! SQUEAL!!  =)
I also saw that Yainea shared a SUPER FUN Idea with a Similar Technique this Week over on the Lawn Fawn Blog during the Release Preview of their New Fintastic Friends Stamp Set!! So if you haven't seen it you can go and check it out too!! She has been in the Hospital, so she hasn't shared how she created her card yet, but she said she would share a Video Soon!! =) So that is TOTALLY something EXCITING to keep an eye out for!! SQUEAL!! I just LOVE it!! =)
So that's it for me and I CAN'T WAIT to see what you create!! I'm also playing along with a coupke other Challenges and I hope you have the Time you can Play Along too!!?? I'd LOVE to see what you create!! =)
