Toad Shaker Card (Craftin Desert Divas)
I started off printing the toad on mix media cardstock and coloring him with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers (46, 44, 20, 22 + Tuxedo Black Dual Marker for the eyes). I wanted to create a shaker card, so for the background of the shaker I blended Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shutter Distress Ink together.
To create the actual shaker I used dark green cardstock for my panel and cut a circle from the center. I adhered a piece of acetate behind the circle so the sequins won't fall out. Using a ton of foam tape, I created the space for the sequins to shake around. To match the colors, I've chosen light and dark green 4mm sequins and filled my shaker card.
To finish up the card I adhered the toad to the bottom right corner using foam square to give him a bit dimension. I also used the sentiment "Popped up to say...HI" from the Popped Up stamp by Craftin Desert Divas. I stamped it with VersaMark ink on black cardstock and embossed it with gold embossing powder. Lastly, I applied some Glossy Accents to the eyes of the toad.
