PTI Blog Hop - Melon/Aqua: feathery shaker card


I used Papertrey's colour combination as a bit of inspiration for a shaker card.  I don't have adhesive foam so used three layers of adhesive cork - it worked really well, actually!
I stamped the feather image using Fresh peach ink and then added an Aqua Mist panel over top.  Lots and lots of shimmering clear sequins and that's it!  I was going to add a sentiment and/or use an impression plate on the Aqua Mist panel but kept it simple and added nothing else ...  In hindsight, I think a bit of dry embossing would've been quite nice but alas ... :)
It's actually quite nice to have some sentiment free cards on hand - you can stamp one to the inside to personalize or just keep it sentiment-less ...
