With this card I went back to my pre Cuttlebug and dies time :o) It doesn't need much things to create it. Only paper, pair of scissors, some pens to color and foam tape. Of course computer and printer as well to print out the digi image :o)
My nephew is going to be 6 y.o. He is a big fan of trucks. So I thought I'll make a fun shaped shaker card for is birthday.
I searched a proper truck image . This is the closest I could find. It's from free-kids-coloring-pages.com. Even though it is a bit strange. Seems that some wheels are missing :o) Such a big truck should have more wheels. If I notice it, I'm sure my nephew notice it too. Oh well...
I printed out four images. Two as they ware and two flipped horizontally. I colored the truck with water base markers and water brush. Also added some (a lot actually) sparkle with atYouSpica glitter markers (Lemon, Red, Sky Blue, Green, Gold, Silver) and Sakura Gelly Roll - Clear Star. Texts are computer generated. I inked the paper piece inside of the shaker with Memento Desert Sand ink.
Inside of the shaker are beads and small stars (there are more of them inside as seen on the photo). I should add them more but half of them ended up on my floor. I was so close to throw the card into the pin but I tamed myself and thought that it would be much bigger work to cut new card then to try fix it :o) I'm clad I didn't throw it away.
I'd love to participate on following challenges:
