My first shaker card!

I've fancied making a shaker card for ages, and I came across some acetate when I tidied my stash a few weeks ago so thought I'd have a go.  Of course it took another half hour to find the flippin acetate again from the I'll know where I put that now spot LOL

So for day 18 of the Daily Marker colouring challeng, I have a cute little bunny from Eat Cake Graphics:
50505-F Flopsy bunny's got an egg

Coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss added to the egg.  Little carrots in the background from Paper Smooches; sentiment is from an old Stampin Up set.
I think I should have used thicker dimensionals to pop the top layer up - I only used 1mm and the sequins kinda get stuck a bit in it.  Ah well, I'll know better for next time!

  7. Such a cute card! My first shaker card is a work in progress, why did I think that making a fishbowl shaped shaker bag was a good idea?! You've inspired me to go back and have another go at it! Cara x

  10. (No idea why I keep calling Easter cards Christmas cards today... Maybe It's denial concerning the vast amounts of chocolate that will be making their way to our house! lol) x

  16. Your shaker card is so cute! They're tricky to get just right with the right-sized pieces for the shaker, etc. You've managed it beautifully. This would be a super fun Easter card to receive.
