Vellum Shaker

I have a shaker card for you today for My Favorite Things You Could Be A Card Design Superstar Challenge here!

I coloured white vellum with alcohol inks in blue and purple and applied the inks in a circular swirl pattern. I love using alcohol inks, you never know exactly how each piece will turn out! I die cut My Favorite Things Triangle Screen from the vellum, adhered it to acetate and added back some of the triangles and left the centre portion empty for the shaker window.

The background for the shaker is also vellum coloured in paler hues of blue and purple.

I finished off with a sentiment from My Favorite Things Peaceful Wildflowers stamp set and a couple of thin black strips of card stock.

I'm also entering this card for Simon Says Stamps Die Crazy Challenge here and Simon Says Stamp Love This Technique Challenge here.

  7. I picked your card out of the 500+ cards on Simon Says Stamp challenge. It is absolutely one of the most stunning colored cards that I have come across. You chose cool spectrum winter favorites. I do not understand why most card makers choose the warm spectrum colors. I do hope you will create more like this one. The watercolor look created by alcohol inks on vellum was quite surprising. I thank God that He created you with this ability to make cards like this for us to enjoy.
