The Mixed Media Card Challenge - Beginnings
Don't fall off your chair - I made a shaker card! (I admire all of you who make shaker cards, and I think they're beautiful, but I may never make another one... way outside my comfort zone. Requires precision.)
We've got our first challenge of 2016 over at The Mixed Media Card Challenge and appropriately enough, it's Beginnings. With a side of sequins.
I've made a baby card - babies definitely qualify as beginnings!
The shaker frame is cut from pink rose glitter card, which coordinates with a Gelli-plate panel I made using red and white acrylic paints. A layer of acetate, some sequins, foam tape, you know the drill. Some washi tape, a stamped card base (STAMPlorations Heaven Sent), a touch of Distress Ink watercolouring on the rocking horse, and it's done. I like how the black and white of the card base contrasts against the pink panels.
So what does Beginnings mean for you? Check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team here and then add your mixed media card creation to the gallery.
