Tilda in a shaker

i made this card to fit a few challenges and was a little worried about actually entering with this card as i colored the image with my distress inks and as you know its not really my medium of coloring, but since i dont have all my normal crafting goodies to hand right now i thought, what have i got to lose?

Magnolia stamp lovers wanted to see purple and black
Just Magnolia provided the great sketch
Magnolialicious highlights wanted a shaker card
Stamptacular Sunday  are playing hide and seek

So my card sure fits the bill for all of these.  My shaker was made using foam core and acetate to hold the beads in, the beads are a mixture of micro beads, clear and black and then i found these little lilac pieces at the bottom of my dew drops bottle so popped those in for good measure.  I dont have the Mag doohickey tag so i made my own variation on that.  I turned back the left top corner of my dp and added my flowers in there and the bottom right corner.  The leafy sprig is a punch from NS.

I followed through on the tag design to the inside of my card and then called complete!
hope you are all enjoying the new style of cards i am turning out with  the insides decorated
See you soon

  1. As always...GORGEOUS! So why are your copics not to hand right now?
    I love the folded back corners at the top left - stunning idea :-)
    Oh, and I'd love to see how you made the oval with the different punches...but knowing you, I bet it's a complete punch we've not seen yet ;-)

  9. Paola, this is just so beautiful! I love everything about it, the folded corners of the paper and the flowers placed to enhance tht, the gorgeouse punched frame around your image with the ribbon woven through the edges, the sweet image colored to perfection to the gorgeous handmade tag tucked behink the image panel. Your shakers are delightful. What a super great job you did!

  11. Paola,
    I would've never guessed that you do not normally use distress inks. You've colored her beautifully, as usual. How come your tools aren't handy? Have a great day, Paola.
    Blessings to you,

    If you are not used to Distress inks I'd like to see your cards when you get used to them. This one is beautiful. I love the purple and black. I love the frame and the design papers. I love how you have turned your corners back and placed your flowers there. Lovely card.
