Industrial Shaker card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Recycle".

I'm not very good at saving packaging or other things to use as recycled bits for my projecs. But luckily I had saved the packaging of Hinge Clips and immediately had the idea to make a shaker card with it. I wanted to make an industrial shaker card. And I started with Purveyor and Dapper stamp sets in the background. And also used Digits and Texture Paste for a bit more texture.


When the Texture Paste was dry I used Distress Oxide Spray Speckled Egg, Distress Spray Walnut Stain and Hickory Smoke. The mix of the spray stain and oxide spray is amazing and unique. After the sprays had dried, I continued with the shaker part. I cut the packaging and bent the edges and cut the opening out of the card. I glued the shaker window to the card with adhesive tape. To integrate the shaker well with the card, I colored Texture Paste with Distress Paint Black Soot, Speckle Egg and Liquid Acrylics Burnt Sienna. Then I put a few drops of Alcohol Ink Mushroom in the shaker to give it an aged look.
