Paper Play Time!!

It's time for a new challenge at Paper Play!!

So this week, I got to pick the theme!! hehehehhe How cool is that?? Anyway I challenge you to use something that you wouldn't normally use in card making.... for example things like Can's or Jar's or maybe Sea Shells or Fabric or Coins or Cork or Cardboard or - GOSH the list is endless really!! And also this week we are being sponsored by Waltzingmouse Stamps!!!

So for my card I decided to make a bit of a fantasy card, an under water dream for Mermaid Tilda...  So my things not intended for card making is the Sea Shell and some Tulle - which is meant to be like a fish net LOL....

So here is my Shaker Easel Card, I hope you love it as much as me!!

Here is a bit of a closer look at the main shaker part - I've popped some charms in the shaker, so the star is meant to represent a star fish of course and the Princess crown is because Mermaids are Queen's of the ocean - well to me anyway!! And well there has to be a message in a bottle too Huh?? heheheh  love these little bottles they are super cute dont' you think? Only thing is I can't remember where I got it from:-(

You can see the tag poking out the side as well, the photo is a bit funny because I was trying to get it all in!!

Here is a pic of the bottom part - I've pulled out the tag so you can see how I decorated it.  I've used Antique Linen ink to stamp the sea weed, and silver ink for the shells.  I've also popped on some Atyou Spica Clear and Glossy accents to make it pop!!

So there you have it!!  I hope you will find something a little different for your cards this week, and will come and play along at Paper Play!!
