Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a card for Gerda Steiner Designs March Challenge Card.  I’ll be making a Shaker card today, I love shaker cards:)  For those of you that are not familiar of this Progressive Challenge that Gerda has, I’ll explain a little about it.

Once you purchase an image and participate in the current challenge she has going on.  Next Month, she’ll email you the following month’s challenge image for FREE.  This is an ongoing thing as long as you participate in her challenges, which is super Awesome!!  This month’s image is this Kitten with Chickens.  I’ll leave a link below if you’re interested.

Today I’ll be doing some watercoloring so I printed this image out on watercolor paper.  When I’m printing a Digital image on watercolor, I print them out on 90lb. Strathmore paper so it doesn’t jam in my printer.  I then cut out the image using the Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched rectangle.  I also cut a glitter card stock as well as 6 frames that’s bigger that my focal panel to create a frame for my Shaker.

I colored this using a Simply Art watercolor pallet.  This is a very inexpensive watercolor set that you can purchase for $6-$8 depending on where you get them.  This is my first time trying these out and surprisingly, the colors were very vibrant.  I noticed that it does give a chalky finish once the paint dries.  If you rub your fingers across it, it rubs off on your fingers a little.  So you might want to use some type of fixative on it if you’d like.  For me, this was going inside a shaker, so it didn’t bother me but in the future, I might add some fixative.  I out together my shaker card and put some paper cut sequins, stars and hearts out of several dies and also added some iridescent glitter inside.  I didn’t use any foam adhesive today, instead I made the dimension using card stocks.  I do have a Full video tutorial on this on my Youtube if you like to check that out.  Thank you so much for visiting and Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks so much and Mahalo:)
