I hadn't done a shaker card in a while and was delighted to see that's what
Poppystamps was looking for this month.
I was kind of up in the air about what to use though.
I don't have nearly enough Poppystamps dies.
That oversight is about to be remedied!
Then I saw Karen's (Snippets) card making beautiful use of this
Meadow Clover die and an idea was born.
Thanks for the wonderful inspiration, Karen!
That Fuse Tool really comes in handy to make the shaker bag.
And some sequins and beads that
came with a dress on of my girls bought when she was in
high school went inside.
I smooshed some Distress Inks on a craft mat, spritzed with water,
and smooshed a snippet of mixed media paper in it
to make a background for the shaker.
The flowers were colored with Distress Markers and blended with water.
I tried to make them look like violets.
Or whatever purple flowers you want to call them.
And since I die cut and embossed a square for my shaker, I can take this to
Where IT'S HIP TO BE SQUARE
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
