Fishin' Around Shaker

Happy Tuesday friends! Yea, yea, I know.. It's ONLY Tuesday.. But, it's a new challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments! And that's a reason to be happy! This week, we have a fun color combo for ya!
My card this week took F.O.R.E.V.E.R. I had an idea in my head and just could NOT get it to come to fruition. But, I ended up with something that "will do." LOL... I am sure it looks fine to the rest of you, but when you have something in your head and it just doesn't want to come together, it is incredibly frustrating!!

It's another shaker card. I'm hooked on making shakers. They are so easy and add such a fun element to your card. My daughters are obsessed with them too, maybe that's why they are so fun for me. Now, I look at my stamps differently and wonder "Hmmm... would that make a good shaker???"


The stamp is a single stamp called Fishin' Around. I actually stamped it twice and cut the fish out of the second one and attached them to the front of the cello bag so it would appear more "3D." The gold sequins are supposed to be from the little treasure chest... which is covered up mostly by the shakers.... oh well... at least I get it! Ha! I used my Fringe Scissors (LOVE) to make the little grass shakers. 

The bubbles were inspired by my fellow Artisans Alanna Wharf and Becky Cowley who did these adorable projects with doodled bubbles. I couldn't wait to give them a try. But, I think I need a little more practice... Thanks girls for the inspiration!
Make sure you hop over to HSS and check out what the lovely ladies have done this week. Hope you will get your creation hooked up with us as well!
