Shaker Card for Camp

Hi there! I'm back with a post for Summer Card Camp 2. The inspiration was from Week 2, Day 3 where one of the guest artists, Kelly Marie Alvarez from Lawn Fawn created this amazing shaker card. I have always wanted to try one of these. The most difficult part for me this week, despite the amazing inspiration and projects, was to get into the groove with the colour combo challenge. These are not typically colors I would work with, which is why this class is so awesome . . . it is really pushing me outside of my comfort zone. Hope you enjoy my card . . . I will definitely be making more of these as it was so fun to make! **For some reason I had a hard time photographing this card - lighting was never quite right. I took a few pics of the front so you could see the different shaker pieces :).

Inside of Card - starfish has cute glossy accents and colored with copic marker

Digi Stamps: CC Designs
Stamps: Paper Smooches (greeting), Gina K (clouds), Inkadinkadoo (starfish)
Dies: Spellbinders, SSS (for little bits)
Ink: Memento, Versamark, Distress Ink (sky background)
Paper: Neenah, Bazzill, X-Press It
