For whatever reason, Monday morning I was obsessed with making a shaker card. No rhyme or reason, just *had* to. Overall, a totally illogical thing to do, as I'm not very adept at making shakers and my sequin stash is, well, somewhat laughable (which is why you don't see them adorning my cards very often). To be clear: I have ever so pretty sequins, which I'm saving for who knows what (how about learning where to place the darn things!) and a bunch of 'not so quality' ones from oh...some store *grin* It was those that I wanted to play with - use 'em up!
After many hours - TRUE STORY, and I'm not disclosing how long this took, although I did have some distractions along the creation-journey - this is what materialized:
The zebra's expression pretty much says it all...so much time for such a little creation (4.5 x 4.5)...but it is kinda cute...sorta...
NOTE: Thrilled and honoured that Mr. Zebra shaker card was selected as the JUGS Chic of the Week. THANK YOU!
After all that fiddling (and the realization that Mr. Mojo is still in the luggage, hiding), I made a second 'critter' card that required little more than die-cutting. Nothing fancy; just my cutie-patootie Taylored Expressions Little Bits fox...
Yes, you've detected a colour theme happening here, the source being Just Us Girls #306~Colour Week
Mr. Fox's staging came from CAS Colours & Sketches #127~Sketch
I'm also heading off to Cute Card Thursday #386~Anything Goes and Paper Smooches August 16-22~Anything Goes (yep, Kim and DT...yet another zebra card!)
After the shaker debacle, I think I have shaker's out of my system...for now. Still a bunch of those sequins left though...and I could do a hippo card, because they're grew...and some red flowers and...maybe not. I'll save the hippo for something else.
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
