Happy Birthday City Shaker Cards - Pinkfresh Studio

Good morning! So, yesterday I did a very first Facebook Live video! There were some technical difficulties (of course!) - but we sorted that all out and managed to get a card made. If you missed it and want to take a peek, you can find it on the Pinkfresh Facebook - I kept accidentally hitting the "end" button, so there are a total of 4 videos (oops...) - but the one where we actually put this card together is HERE. The plan is to do this each week on Thursdays as schedules allow - so I hope you'll be able to come join me sometime!

Anyway, without further is the card we made today - and a bonus card at the end! (As a side note - the entire set of the Pinkfresh Liquid Watercolors we used on this card are on sale 20% off through the rest of April with coupon code: LW20OFFAPRIL)

Lots of fun techniques putting this card together using the Citiscape Die and coordinating A Day in the City Stamp Set. We did some watercoloring behind the window with Bubble Gum and Clementine liquid watercolors, heat embossed our image in gold, and then did some distress ink blending over the top! 

Die cut that panel with the new Essential Diagonal Stitched Rectangles, then turned it into a shaker card and added some glittery gold cardstock tucked behind to enhance the sparkle!

This same card can be recreated in an array of colors and using different techniques! Here is a softer more neutral version that I put together as well.

For this card I lined everything up in my MISTI, stamped it in soft gray ink, then colored the image in to add some shading using only Warm Gray Copics. I then restamped over the top in embossing ink and heat embossed in white.

Put this together the same way I did the last card, but used Sky Blue and Aquamarine liquid watercolors for the background on this one.

Which one do you like best? More color and sparkle? Or soft and neutral?
