What is happening!

Hi All

I hope your day is going well.

I am not too sure what is happening to me!
As you know I love stamps and ink only but today somehow I wanted to colour and then this led me to making a shaker.....which I have only made one before and I get in a real pickle trying to do them. However this turned out not so bad!

I coloured the Uniko flower using the colours from Just Us Girls and even had a go at adding detail with a white gel pen (a pressie for my Birthday from hubby) but have no idea how to do this so will be asking Nonni how to do this as she is the expert!

Then had to hunt for some acetate to make the shaker!

Oh well....way out of my comfort zone but a change and fun!

I will enter into:

Inkspirational-shake-girls when I saw this challenge, there was no way I was going to enter!!
Just Us Girls-colour week
Uniko-AG with twist of Bright and Happy-I went with the twist!

Have a fun day x



  1. Way to go, Sandie! It's always fun to step outside our comfort zones - this is beautiful!

  2. I’m glad you had a change of heart and did make a shaker card. My experience is that practice makes better, so it gets less fiddly when you’ve got the hang of it. Beautiful coloring too. Thanks for joining our challenge at InkspirationalšŸ˜Š

  3. Doesn't look like you have trouble with shakers, Sandie! This is a fun one with the big flower!

  4. This turned out very well. I know what you mean about shaker cards, they look amazing but can be a real hassle to make as sequins and acetate just seem to create static so they cling together and cause problems. I really like how you have coloured that gerbera (I think that's the flower). I have that stamp so I might just copy your idea! xx

  5. Wonderful, Sandie, who doesn't need a "shake up" with days like these?!?!

  6. I like how it's taken a pandemic for you to do a shaker card Sandie! it looks amazing..I can't believe it's only your second one. I'm not a big fan of making them either...far too fiddly!

  7. You are so funny Sandie! Your card is so pretty and I love how you colored the flower and made a great shaker! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!

  8. Well, this is a nice surprise!! I love it - love the colour of the flowers and the shaker looks great - just didn't expect you to make a shaker! Thanks for joining in.

  9. Wonderful card!
    I's my pleasure to invite you to participate here:

  10. Wow - this is fantastic. Love the shaker element, but it's the bold and beautiful daisy that caught my eye. Great work. Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls, Deborah, GD.

  11. Me too, Sandie ... I make very few shakers (maybe two or three in total). Yours is fabulous ... the bright, vibrant daisy really pops against those fun shaker-y elements! Hugs, Anita :)

  12. Well done hon having a go with a shaker design and this one turned out beautiful! I love the colorful look of the flower. You'll have to let you know if your gel pen is giving you trouble! What brand gel pen did you get from hubby? Thank you for joining us at Ink!

  13. WOW! This is only your second shaker? It's absolutely stunning! Your daisy really shines as the star of the shimmery stage! Thrilled to see you in the INK, JUGS and Uniko galleries!

  14. This is beautiful Sandie. Love the bright colours over the soft pink and white frame. After your craze for stencils maybe shaker cards are your new passion ! Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Uniko. x

  15. Love how you have coloured the Gerbera and such a fun shaker card design. Thanks for joining in on the fun at Uniko. Hugs Bev x
