Thank you shaker card with lovely Fuchsias

Happy Thursday my crafty friends!

Today I am brave enough to share this shaker card with you. I’ve been in love with all Pretty Pink Posh Flower releases and I had no guts to try them due to my poor coloring skill and lack of creative imagination. But I could not hold it back anymore and ordered all of them last week from Butterfly Reflections Ink.  This one I am using is called Flourishing Fuchsias which became my number 1 favorite of their flower images.

To begin with, I ink blended Tim Holtz distress oxide ink in Pickled Raspberry and Wilted Violet on to a piece of Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper. I mixed the ink from Pickled Raspberry with water and randomly splattered on inked background by tapping on a watercolor brush. While I was waiting for the background to air dry, I die cut the frame using a die similar to Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Frame die out of Neenah Solar white cardstock 110lbs 6 times and glued 5 of them together using Multi Medium Matte to create the base of frame. Then I stacked a piece of acetate paper on the top of this base and close it up with another piece of die cut frame.

Now it is time to decorate the background. I stamped “Thank you” sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh Everyday Greetings Stamp set using Versafine black ink and arranged some of Pretty Pink Posh Jewels in Pink Blush. I chose two kinds of sequins as free movements for this shaker card. One is Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear sequins and another one is Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Fairytale Fuchsia.

For preparing the images, I stamped all images onto Strathmore Bristol smooth surface paper and colored them using Kuretake Clean Color Real brush markers, then I hand fussy cut them. I arranged them onto the upper left corner of the frame so its more like natural of Fuchsia flowers and it also gave space for the sentiment. I did final touch by adding a few Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Clear droplets as well.

There you have it! My first flowery card! I hope many more would come. We always learn while we are trying. Right?
