All At Sea - Shaker card

Morning all, well its time for another new challenge over at Cardz4guyz

with the theme for the next fortnight being:


I decided to go with a looking out through  a porthole into the deep sea and make a shaker card.  

6x6 White cardblank.  I added woodpanel paper onto brown cardstock and then to the card front.   I added a strip of rope pattern paper across the middle and copper effect screw brads in the corners.

To make my shaker i first die cut a frame from metal rust effect paper and backed with a circle of acetate.  Then added foam tape around the frame.  I die cut an octopus and coloured him with orange starlight paint so he shimmers in the light.  I die cut some fish and seaweed from scraps of inked cardstock.  I then added clear micro beads and tiny silver and blue sequins, then backed with a blue water paper.  

I then added the shaker to the front and a sentiment sticker.  I added bronze viva pearl drops around the shaker frame to act as rivets.

And the cute octopus, the starlights paint really shimmers in the light.

Items Used:
Octopus & Fish dies - unbranded
Spellbinders & Cheerylynn foliage dies
Spellbinders circle dies
Kaisercraft papers 'coastal escape'
Papermania papers 'Mr Smiths workshop'
Imagination crafts starlight paint 'oxide orange'
Brushos & Pixie powders
Viva bronze pearl drops

So if you fancy joining in and seeing all the DT's work and entries please do hop over to cardz4guyz      I think this is a good theme for those men's cards and lots of different items to use.

Brilliant card Emma, love the cute Octopus, I made a porthole card for my dad a few years back when I first started, not as good as this and not a shaker card but they do work well for the men folk. Big hugs Kirsty. xx
