Tamiko's Challenge #4...

It's time for another challenge at Tamiko's. This time it's to make a shaker card with a summer color theme. Sounds like fun? Come and join us...if you win...you get this stamp! For all the deets, please stop off at Tamiko's. I really had a blast coming up with something different. I made a double shaker...can you see the microbeads in the front and the dew drops in the back? I used Honey bikini for my image. I thought that using oranges and blues are pretty summer colors. I also used the new Imaginisce DP line called Splash Dance.
here's what my card looks like. what's different is that I cut out the window on the DP, placed an acetate window over it and turned that into my first shaker. I then cut out the second window on my card CS and poured the beads in and closed it with my second acetate. I then placed the cut out image onto the acetate, poured the dew drops in and closed it up with the backside of the DP. I of course had to add my infamous flowers and sprayed it with the shimmers sparkle from Tsuineko. I really do love how this card came out cute!
I even decorated the inside...since the DP is two sided...I made sure that the colorful sea life was used to decorate the inside of this card. remember that the dots are used for the background of the shaker. I added a little sentiment and voila!
Please come join us on the fun at Tamiko's. this is your chance to try a shaker if you never did. once you made one...you can't stop! You can use any stamp, just turn your card into a shaker and use summer colors, then add your link to Tamiko's blog. what do you have to lose?

We will be waiting to see you and you can check out all the other ladies of the Creative Team. till then...

Joy this is soooo cute! I thought I had more time to finish this, but...ugh. I am so overwhelmed right now that I can't even sleep (it's 4am, lol). So the inspection went well and looks like everything is pretty much a go. Termite inspection tomorrow and then...that is pretty much it. I will let you know. We might even move in like next weekend, yikes! Too much to think about. Ahhh!
