Hello friends! I hope you are all doing well!
I had fun playing in some of the DTGD challenges over on SCS this past week. It was CRAZY how many challenges there were, and while I did get to complete a card for every challenge (49 challenges in a week) I did NOT make 49 cards! There is no way at the speed I work that that could ever happen! However, I did manage to create cards that fit several challenges at a time and thereby got them all done with only 18 cards. Still.... for me... that's still a LOT! LOL!
Anyway... that said... here is one of the cards I made. The challenge was a shaker card, and I used a past release from ODBD, The Mighty Sea, and a current release, Ocean Treasures for my sentiment. The image is colored with Copics except the sky, which is done with pastel chalks. I used a white pen for highlighting the waves. I stamped the image twice so that my card base and the overlay would line up to form a seamless scene. The plastic shaker itself is from Impression Obsession. I filled it with some tiny blue micro-beads, and some of the tiniest shells you've ever seen! We picked these up on N. Myrtle Beach the last time we went and I was so excited to find so many tiny ones that were whole! The "sand" in the foreground is from Muddpuddles and was a gift from a dear friend. The little starfish is a gift from another very dear friend and I have hoarded it for a while, but this seemed to be the time to use it. The sentiment is punched with a SU! punch and colored to match the sky colors.
I hope you enjoyed this and that in some small way it might have inspired you to try one! Just about anything can be put in a shaker!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
