Shaker Card with a Background made of Ink and Mist


I've been playing with ink and mist for this card. I've made my own background paper using a stamp with scripture from Kort&Godt. I inked it up with Wild Honey Distress Ink, then I sprayed the paper with Peach Delight Glimmer Mist. The frame came from a paper set from IKEA, the sentiment is a Prima cling stamp. I added acetate so that I could make a shaker card with gold star sequins. The inside is also sprayed with glimmer mist. I added a glittery butterfly with pearls from Panduro and some golden star gems. The edges have been machine stitched with golden thread.
The layout is inspired by Marina's card for the CASE challenge over at Inkspirational. I replaced the doily shape with the frame, added a winged creature and used golden gems.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #34 CASE
2) 2 Sisters - #158 Square Cards
3) A Gem of a Challenge -#94 Anything with a B (Butterfly)
4) Allsorts - #221 Use Acetate
5) Top Tip Tuesday - #108 Initials (Peach color and Pearls for my first name, Shaker card and Stitching for my family name)
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Great idea to use the stars as the shakers. Love the swirly colours and beautiful butterfly.

Back home now, trying to cope with a mild touch of jet lag...but doing not too bad!
Mountains of laundry today and then hope to put my new treasures away so I can start crafting and creating soon!
