PPP: Wishing you Showers of Blessings

Hi there!
Today I'm sharing a project I made using Pretty Pink Posh products. This is a fun shaker card using Birdie FriendsRainy Days and Rainy Day Additions stamp sets. 

 For this scene, I wanted to have a mother bird with her two different sized chicks. The older chick comes attached to two other birds in the stamp set (see picture below). So I covered the birds I didn't want with washi tape and inked the middle bird. Before stamping the bird on the paper, I removed the washi tape. This gave me an image with tiny missing lines, so I drew in what was missing with the copic liner. Then, I stamped the rest of the images and colored them with copic markers. After, I stamped the umbrella and the pieces that go with it using dye ink. Everything was cut with the coordinating dies.  

To create the background, I trimmed paper down to 4x5. Then, I stamped the clouds and raindrops using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. When it dried, I applied Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass. I spritzed the paper with some water for a textured look.

I made the shaker window by die cutting white card stock using the larger Scallop Frames die. Then I trimmed the acetate to a size a little smaller than the frame and added the sentiment using versamark ink and white embossing powder. Next, I adhered the acetate behind the shaker window and added two layers of foam adhesive. Finally, I added 3mm Sparkling sequins and light blue sequins to represent rain and adhered the family of birds with the umbrella to the front of the card.

I had so much fun working with today's products. I think this card will cheer up anyone's day.

Thank You for stopping by!
Hugs, Amy
