Water-colored Birthday Card

It’s that time again, and this month the twist is water-coloring.

I decided it would be nice to make a shaker card, since I hadn’t done that for a while.

I started off by water-coloring a background. I also water-colored a smaller piece of cardstock using the same colors. I cut out the die, and added acetate to the back of it, then used foam tape to form the padding.

I then added a sequin mix (from Stampin Up).

Now, if I’d been smart, I would have cut another piece of water-colored cardstock and coloured it to use behind the die. But no, I had to make things hard for myself. 🙂

So I put the cardbase over the die with the sequins etc, trying to get it centered. I didn’t quite make it, but it’s pretty good. Lastly I added a few neutral sequins.

If I made this card again, or indeed another shaker card, I would definitely put a colored piece behind the die cut, then glue that to the card.
