[Simon Says Stamp ] Sea Animals Shaker Card

Hi, there!
Welcome to my blog.
Today, I'm sharing a fun shaker card featuring Under the Sea Animals Stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.
I ordered this along with other gorgeous new release products from Simon Says Fluttering By Collection as soon as I saw this. How adorable the little creatures are! 
The parcel arrived yesterday, and I started inking this set, leaving my other scheduled projects behind, lols!
So here's my card.

At the first time I saw the Pebbles Dies, I thougt it would be perfect for ocean themed shakers. 

I started by stamping Under the Sea Animals onto 80lb Neenah White paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then I cut them all using my Scan N Cut. Or you can use Under the Sea Animals Coordinating Dies
Then I colored them with copic markers.

I picked a piece of Ultra Thick Whie Cards Stock to make an A2 sized panel. Then I die cut it using Pebbles Dies. I adhered a piece of Acetate Film on the back of the panel, and then foam tapes around the window. As the Pebbles Dies cut panel had no extra margin for shaker frames, parts of foam tapes were seen through the pebbles holes near the both edges of the window. So I masked them using diecut pieces of pebbles colored with copic markers.

To make a background panel of shaker, I simply did watercoloring on 140lb cold pressed watercolor paper, which had been trimmed to A2 size. I used Daniel Smith Watercolors : Phthalo Blue (GS), Prussian Blue, and Prussian Green.

Next, I assembled shaker by putting in Sequins, Jewels, and Seed Beads : Blue Lagoon, Navy, Spring Meadow, 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins,  Sparkling Clear Jewels, Aquamarine Jewels, Sparkling Clear Seed Beads, Daffodil, and Spring Green.

I adhered sea animals and sentiment onto the front panel then I put it on Navy Card Base. I added Sparkling Clear Jewels and Ivory Jewels to embellish the card. 

Copic markers :
Turtle -E47-E44-E43-E42

Thanks for reading this post.
I hope you enjoyed it.
Happy Crafting!
