Shake Shake Shake

Shaker cards of foxes, Canada, and narwhalsI’ve been collecting stamp and die sets, and lately mostly just sharing these with a friend of my mom’s, who likes to make cards. Just because. The last couple days I just wanted to make something, so I tried these out for myself to use. I also tried out my alcohol markers, which are fun but very different from my usual media. I don’t seem to have a blender, so the shading was really a different style than how I normally do things. Nevertheless, I love how these came out.

I just used trading card sleeves with the sequins and beads inserted in front of the card, some of which I stuck to the back to make it look a little sparkly even when it all falls to the bottom. I started off sealing them with a Fuse tool, but I didn’t like how it was coming out so I used some washi instead. Did my best to match with the supplies on hand.

I reserved one of the Canada moose cards to put on the front of my collector book for the cards I’ve swapped with others.

Hopefully from now the stress has passed enough to be able to get more art done. That would be nice. I have lessons and art journal classes piled up I really want to get to.
