Shaky Fish

Hello!



I have just got back from my holidays and seem to have left my mojo on the airplane so needed to play along with a challenge to get creative.  This week the cue card at CASology is Aquatic which is where I started with the cute fish from Mama Elephant's Cosmic Stars set.  I watercoloured and glazed them before stencilling a watery background.  Throw in a few sequins behind the aperture and a simple shaker card is made. 




I hope you are having a fun summer :)

Thanks for stopping by,

Sarah x

fun shaker - just a quick question: how did you get the stitching on the outside of the cut-out circle-shape - doesn't the die only stitch the inside?

Hi Tanja - I think Sarah picked the wrong die - you need either the Avery Elle or Lil' Inker Designs versions of stitched circles to get the ability to leave stitched details on both the positive and negative. Both sets are currently out of stock - but we will be getting them back soon. Avery Elle's version should be here by the end of August. Thanks Tara

Love it - what's the stencil you used? If it's that was one, I might cry...

Sorry Janet. Sarah is away and I don't recognise the stencil. I will ask her when she gets back.
