Making a shaker card was an option at the Summer Card Camp 2 class today. I've never made one before and became interested last week after reading a post on Laura Bassen's Blog, Doublestick Heaven. Lauren was a guest instructor. Lauren linked a great tutorial by Amy Rasavy about how to make shakers. They seemed fun, simple, and today was the day I finally got my act together!
I am thrilled with how this came out!! I had some craft sequins that came in a variety of shapes and colors and found some seed beads super cheap at Marshall's, so they went in too!
This little cutie is from Doodle Pantry. Jennifer Nilsson is the artist. Her Etsy shop is fabulous! I've bought a few other images from her there, and have her Doodle Garden stamps from MFT.
I thought I would take a close up, to show his hair and goggles. The hair was tricky to get it to look like a short boy haircut. I love the goggles too. I saw a tutorial a few weeks ago (I can't remember where) that showed how to color nylon stockings on a woman. They colored the flesh tone first and then added the color on top. I thought that same tip could apply to the goggles. I'm not sure whether I'm happier about the shaker card or the coloring!
I have a feeling I will be spending part of tomorrow making a few more shakers!!
