Seahorse Shaker

I've been wanting to make a shaker card with this Ocean Seahorse (Impression Obsession) image since I got it awhile back. Thanks to Amelia (WendyBell'sGirl on SCS) I had the perfect opportunity today. She provided a wonderful Sketch. Thanks Amelia!!

The seahorse is colored with copics and has a touch of sparkle added with my Quickie Glue pen and Ultrafine glitter. I cut the frame with my circle nestabilites and mounted it with a piece of acetate and dimensional tape onto the seahorse image circle. The inside is filled with sequins (Hero Arts).



To finish off the edges so the tape didn't show, I took a 1/8" piece of the same colored cs as the frame and glued it around the circle. I then *caulked* the edges with White Opal Liquid Pearls and Ultrafine Glitter.

To make the embossed corners, I just put a circle nestability inside of a square one, ran it through my cuttlebug, and then again to emboss it. I love the look. Finally, I added a bit more bling with Adornit gemstones and some organdy ribbon.


Supplies:
Stamps - Ocean Seahorse (Impression Obsession)
Paper - Frosted Teal, Intense Teal (Prismatics), Shimmery White (Stampin' Up), Ally's Wonderland forget-me-dots (
S.E.I.)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories - Copics, Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Adornit gems, sequins (Hero Arts), Quickie Glue Pen, Ultrafine glitter, Liquid Pearls, ribbon, circle punch, dimensional tape

Great looking cards. The window looking at the sea horse looks just like a port hole.

Love the white card with the little bluebird.

Love the colors used with the monkey drinking hot chocolate card.
