Shaker card with All That Scraps Snorkeling Beatrice

Hi people!!

Just in case you missed my post earlier today, it's below this post and there is some info in there you'll want to read later on :). But right now I want to show you a project I did with the super cute Snorkeling Beatrice stamp from All That Scraps. Now I always love to see new releases, but when I saw Snorkeling Beatrice I KNEW I had to turn her into 3D. She's so funny. I decided to try my hands on a shaker card:
Now this card looks SO much better in real life then on a picture. I find it very hard to take pictures of shaker cards.... don't know if I'll try one again but love how this one looks though. Papers are little scraps of very old paper, no idea which company they are from. I have distressed the edges of the paper with both Frayed Burlap distress ink and picked fence crackle paint by Tim Holtz. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the glass beated leafs (hope you know which once I mean) are by Magnolia. The beads are from a little box of beads I bought in a budget store. There is cheese cloth behind the layers of paper and the ribbon I got from my friend Diana who bought it at the market from me (mwah!!). Here is a close up of beatrice:
 Now Beatrice has some glitter on her and some beads stuck behind her but I tink that looks kind of like she has bubbles on her. The coloring was done with Copic Markers (what else) and she was as always completely 3D paper pieced.
And this is a picture of the little pieces to proof it :).

Hope you like my card with Snorkeling Beatrice. It will be making it's way to a little three year old on the Post voor Kanjers list. This Dutch organisation has a list of little seriously ill children, as well as their brothers and sisters, and crafters like you and me sign up to send cards to these kids, once every week or month. I hope my little Kanjer (which sort of means stunner in Dutch (I don't think there is a real translation for the word)) will love her little shaker card.

Hope to be back soon!!! Don't forget the post below this one right!!!

Lots of hugs,
