Your Next Stamp - Challenge #66 - Shaker Aquarium Card!

Hello friends! I'm back today with a new Challenge from the Your Next Stamp blog!! There is a new challenge every two weeks based on a colour scheme or a sketch - or both if you're up to it!! Here's a look at both challenges this week.

I decided to use both challenges as inspiration for my aquarium shaker card using the Aquarium Antics stamp set by Your Next Stamp. This is such a sweet set, with lots of cute images and great sentiments!! I bought some Echo Park Summer Fun digital papers from Snap Click Supply, and I was able to create the background panel in Pic Monkey to follow the sketch. I just printed it off on some white cardstock and added it to my card base. I love the clear sparkly Gumdrop enamel dots from the New Release Firecracker Sparkly Gumdrops, and I added three to the top right of my card. I also sponged on a little Distress Oxide Ink around the edges before gluing it all together.

I used my new Project Life Fuse Tool to create a pocket around the aquarium and then added SpiegelMom Scraps sequins and some Ranger Distress Glitter before sealing the top edge. I am absolutely loving this Fuse Tool!! I used some Scor tape and a bit of Glossy Accents to adhere the shaker pocket to my background paper.

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from the set with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink and coloured two more of the cute fishies!! This will be perfect for a birthday or any well wishing card!

Here's a look at this awesome stamp set:
