I'm so excited to share this shaker card with you today. You know I'm a shaker card addict, and with the newest Joy Clair Pearl of Great Price stamp set, it was clearly my go to type card. Since it's an underwater theme, I had fun playing around with a couple different techniques that created a more "loose" design. It all came together so magically; I can't wait to see what you create with the Pearl of Great Price stamp set.
Start by using a large circular die cut in the center of a A2 size white cardstock as well as a same size foam sheet. I used one that was included in a shaker card kit. Make sure you keep the circle cut out as we'll be stamping on that later.
Grab your Magical Shakers in your choice of colors; I chose California Poppy Gold and Time Travel Teal. Lightly sprinkle the powder over the cardstock and then spritz a little bit of water. You don't want to saturate it, just lightly mist it so that some of the color spreads. Set this aside to dry and be careful not to touch.
Using either water based markers, watercolor pencils, or water color paints, color in your plants with coordinating colors. I chose two blues for the plants and then took a watercolor brush to drag the colors outside of the lines. This is suppose to look like it's underwater, so feel free to get a little loose and messy! Then, take a little bit of pink to brush around the pearl on the oyster. I kept the rest of the oyster stamp white since there was already a lot of color and texture going on with the rest of the card.
Next, using your choice sentiment from the Pearl of Great Price stamp set, stamp it onto a strip of black cardstock using white embossing powder.
Now it's time to put it all together. Place the foam sheet onto a card base, tape the inner circle down, add your sequins, and adhere a sheet of acetate to secure the sequins. Arrange and adhere the oyster in position, and then tape down the background sheet. Finally, adhere the sentiment to the bottom left side.
Don't be afraid to mix colors and textures, and get a little crazy with your cards! I absolutely love how this underwater card came out using the Joy Clair Pearl of Great Price stamp set. Can't wait to see what you create!
