Hello Sweet Friend

Gracillie Design

Hello everyone… A new week is here and I hope you all will have a wonderful one! Today I have a fun watercolored, shaker card for a friend.

I use the new digital stamp set, Sweetness from Graciellie Design. This beautiful digital is pack with sweet sentiments and image to use for creating projects for friends.

I created the rainbow watercolored background with Koi Watercolor Paints. I started with adding water on a watercolor paper with big flat brush. And then, I started adding the colors and let them blending naturally with water. Once I was done adding the colors, I dried the panel with craft heater. I trimmed it to fit on a A2 (4.25″ x 5.5″) white card.

I cut 2 scallop dies from Craftin Desert Divas – Fancy Frames Dies to create the shaker window. I added a piece of clear acetate paper on it with Scro-Tape double-sided tape and then I added thick 3D foam tape around it. Then, I added the shaker filler with clear jumbo glitter and fine clear glitter in the middle of the card. I make sure the glitter is in the middle and around it is clean, and then I added the frame on top of it.

I printed the ice cream flower bouquet image and sentiment on a white cardstock with inkjet printer. I dried the ink with craft heater and start color the ice cream bouquet with Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils and waterbrush. I added some glitter on it with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Brush Pen. I dried it again with craft heater, and then I fussy cut the image with micro-tip scissors.

For the sentiment, I cut it into banner strip. I added it on the top of the frame with dries-clear adhesive glue and then I added the ice cream flower bouquet on the card with dries-clear adhesive, I added some 3D foam tape under the extra that sticking out of the edge of frame.

Rainbow always give me hope and joyful feeling in my heart… And I hope you all are inspired to create something today… Thank you so much for stopping by and may you all have a wonderful week!
