Elsa Birthday Shaker Card

Welcome back on this Thursday for the Sassy Studio Design for the challenge of 


You can earn an extra chance to win if you use a Sassy Studio Design image. Then link up twice: One time to your project and The second time to your blog. If you have questions on how to do this leave me a comment and I will walk you through it.

For our anything goes challenge I chose to pull out Elsa because she is so beautiful and people keep asking for cards with her in them. Well this one is a little bit more than an Elsa card-it's a shaker card too! Very fun for a young lady that may like the shake it when Taylor Swift comes on the radio. Just a thought:)

I did a card at the end of March where I was making a water scene for a fish which you can see HERE. While making the fish card I wanted the fish die cut out after taking all this time to apply blue distress inks to the rest of the cardstock. I threw the piece into the recycles. A week or so later I remembered that cardstock and pulled it to give it new purpose. 

The stuff I put into the shaker card is such old materials that I've been saving for a while in the hopes that a technique will arise where I can use them. The acetate is old from the school when teachers wrote on them as an overhead projector. That's been brushed aside leaving found acetate for a crafter to use.

The image of Elsa is small making her challenging to color with distress inks as watercolors. But I think she look awesome the way she is and so I die cut her out using the same shape die as the window. 

The word dies are by Clearly Besotted (happy) and PTI (birthday). The were die cut out of glitter paper by Recollections and glued on with Ranger's Multi Medium Matte.

Thanks for looking
