Pink Ink Sketch Challenge # 7...Sending Well Wishes!

 Photobucket
Hey crafty friends! I'm back again with a card that I made for the Pink Ink Sketch Challenge! They have a gorgeous sketch there by Erica! So, I decided to make a shaker card....this is my very first time attempting this. I am always inspired every time I see one of Camilla's gorgeous shaker cards, so I finally decided to give it a go after reading her instructions on her blog. Don't look too closely on my card here, though, there are a few mistakes. I thought it would be harder than it really was...it is a wee bit fiddly though but I think my second time around will turn out better.

I have been digging into some old paper and I have used this cute Crate paper Called Paper Doll and I have used this sweet My Favorite Things Stamp, Pure Innocence Better Get Better. I coloured this sweet PI girl with my Copic markers and inked with Spun Sugar Distress ink around the image. I bought the Crystal clear acrylic plastic sheets at my LSS and I scored the diamond pattern on it acrylic circle and then used Ice White Viva Decor Pearl pen and added little drops at all the intersections of the grid. I found these cute little jars of micro-beads at the dollar store (Dollarama) and I used them in the shaker card with a little glass glitter. I also added some cork butterflies that I cut with my MFT Butterflies Die-namics.

Here's a close up of the shaker card and below is the inside. The sentiment is a combination of two sentiments from the Better get Better set and Spa Day Pure Innocence stamp sets.

Those cork utterflies are just striking - especially with the pinks & aquas. The Spun Sugar Distress Inking has given a lovely soft look to your image.
