Color Snapshot with Davina

Hello crafty friends. Davina here with an Easter themed slimline shaker that I created using the March Color Snapshot for inspiration. I love the way that this bright rainbow of color can be incorporated into any design, but with Easter just around the corner I decided bunnies were a must.

I wanted to make a multi panel shaker card, but I desired windows a little larger than the cute and decorative scalloped windows in the Stitched Slimline Trio. I made my own using the two larger stiched panels and the straight edged square die from the Mini Essentials Die Set, that I cut three times from the center, using the Heffy MemoTape to keep my die in the perfect place.

Next, I temporarily secured the cut out squares back into position using more Memo Tape. I inkblended my “grass to sky” color combination onto my panel using several Distress Oxides, then splattered with water, glittery perfect pearls, and white ink.

While that dried, I stamped images from several sets onto my white cardstock. I used images from Honey Bunny, Big Bug Hugs, and Quack Me Up. I quickly colored everything with copic markers then cut out with the coordinating dies before adding small white dot highlights.

Wanting the inkblended squares to be the background for each shaker window, I moved the reposition along Memo Tape to the front of panels. Then added some Glubert liquid glue to the back of each square. I centered the inky panel onto a bright white panel and removed the memo tape. My squares stayed perfectly positioned in the desired location. I added some clear acetate to the back of my die cut panel then mounted some Heffy Foam Tape to make the shaker sections.

I adhered all of my die cut images to my inky panel, creating little mini scenes. I always like to overlap little clusters and make sure that some pieces extend beyond my panel. Once I was satisfied with the results I put a small amount of iridescent sequins onto each background square, then carefully positioned the decorated window on top being extra careful to line it back up perfectly.

I finished this off by stamping a white banner with pink ink for the upper segment. I used a partial sentiment from the Special Day Sentiment Set that says Happy Easter. I used a post it note to mask of the smaller second row of writing and inked up my stamp with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink.

I don’t make shaker cards as often as I should. So I always get very happy when I finally put one together. I shake them forever. And I’ve found that if you let a few days go by, the residual static disappears and the sequins shake so wonderfully! Thanks for stopping by,
