Wonderful and Amazing Day Watercolor Shaker - Lil' Inker Designs

Hello! Dropping by today with a bright and happy shaker card featuring some stamps and dies from Lil' Inker Designs used in a fun and unique way!

I started off by creating that fun watercolor stripe background using one of the simple watercolor striped images in the Brushed Plaid stamp set. I stamped with Distress Inks on watercolor paper using Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Carved Pumpkin, and Salty Ocean - then misted it with water. I also added a few tiny black splatters using Pinkfresh Studio's Licorice liquid watercolors, then set it all aside to dry nice and thoroughly.

Once it dried, I came back and die cut the largest oval from Stitched Mats: Ovals from the center of it. I adhered the die cut oval on a cardbase, then built a shaker with the negative portion. That way I used my entire background, but was able to include an inset shaker at the same time. I filled it with sparkly iridescent stars from Pretty Pink Posh!

I wrapped some black twine around the entire card and tied in a bow, then die cut then next smallest oval from white cardstock and stamped a sentiment from Hand Drawn Happiness on it. Mounted that with foam adhesive over the inset shaker element to finish off!
