Mermaid 02

My family and I are on a seaside vacation right now, but I wanted to share this one with y’all this week!

I couldn’t NOT make a shaker card with the tail. I mean, come on…  Not with those purty Seaside Holiday sequins begging to be used in one! This is a traditional shaker made by using foam tape to create a box around the seaweed/under sea images from the Otter Ware set.  The tail was just stamped with an Aquamarine ink over Juicy Pear card stock and die cut out.  Trimmed off what I wouldn’t need and 3D mounted it inside the shaker frame.  I wanted this one to have some pretty significant shaker action, so I added an additional layer of foam tape all around the perimeter, before topping the whole thing off with acetate and a white frame.

And, now, of course, I wanna make another one.  Maybe with some real sand mixed in with the sparkly mermaid litter. :)
