Deeper Than The Ocean

Good morning from the deep blue sea today! 

I'm here today with my project card for 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Blog Challenge

Our current sponsor for April is Digi Doodles Studios Digital Stamps and the image I used for my card is Sequanna Mermaid

To make this card I sized her to be about 4" x 4.5" and then  printed her using Neenah 110# Cardstock.  Then the fun part ~ coloring with my Copic markers. The colors I used are listed below for your reference.  Afterwards I used Whimsy Stamps Notched Square die for the image and made a dark purple frame using two of these dies together.

There are several ways to assemble a shaker card, but for mine, I glued the image to the lavender 5.5" card base.  Then I added my foam tape all the way around the image, following the die cut lines.  I also cut one piece of transparency the size of the purple frame.  I added a generous spoon of sequins, beads and hearts on top of the image. Next I added the transparency to the top of the foam strip, pushing it down securely all the way around.  Lastly I added a glue line around the transparency and then placed the purple frame on top and set it aside to dry.  Once it was dry, I added the stamped starfish and the sentiment tag to complete the shaker card project. 

I’ll be entering this card in the following challenges:
