Blow Bubbles

I'm here to share a shaker card featuring one of my favorite Bunnies in new digital form, Bunnies at Sea Digistamp!  This card went through several iterations before I was happy with it.  

 

 

It was a pretty straight forward plan.  I cut and colored the Bunny (Prismacolor pencils) and his fishy friends.  Then I cut some "seaweed" and shaded it with inks using the Fall Foilage SVG/Digi along with some sand paper for the ocean bottom and mounted it all on a Gelli Plate print background from my stash .  This was adhered to the inside of a white card blank.

 

 

I cut the porthole (a retired TCP die) from metallic paper and a circle in the card strategically positioned over the bunny.  A traditional shaker element was created with layered acetate and cute little sea themed sequins.  This is what resulted -

 

 

This didn't match with the picture I had in my head, so (and I would recommend you do this before adding the shaker if you give it a try) I embossed some card, stained it with Frayed Burlap distress ink and cut it into planks.  I was able to add it fairly easily around the porthole and I was much happier with the result. 

 

 

A little ginger alcohol ink added to the metallic papers gave it a more aged/distressed look.  Finally the fun sentiment was printed, colored and layered onto "wood" and metallic scraps.  

 

Here are the fun TCP digital products I used for my project today -
