Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop. This month's theme is Summer Fun. I had a hard time deciding what to do for this theme. I decided to bring up something from the past. Every Summer we used to go to Vancouver and go the the Aquatic Aquarium in Stanley Park. I used to love going through it and being amazed at all the Aquatic Life. Especially the Whales and the Turtles. This card is a reflection of those memories.
I decided to make a card using the Whale Tale Bundle and the amazing Designer Series Paper. I wanted to make a Shaker card and decided to use the Snow Globes. It definitely made the Shaker Card very easy to do. I also wanted to keep the piece that I cut out, to sit behind the globe. I like the way it turned out. Here is the card. I will give the supply list below.
And here is the one that I did in the Video
It really reminds me of the aquarium that I used to go to. You can see the shaker sequins below.
Measurements for this card are:
Pear Pizzaz: 5 1/2 x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼”
Pretty Peacock: 4” x 5 ¼”
Whale of a Time DSP: 3 ¾” x 5”
Whisper White: Scraps
I made a quick video, showing how I made it.
