Edwin shaker

Just a short post to show a card I started some days ago, an Edwin shaker card.
Today I feel crappy, so I'm in no crafting mood..
I stuggled a lot with this card. Nothing felt right, no colours and no papers fit together, and it took me quite some time to get finished!
But now I think it came out very well! :)

I used the sketch from Papertake weekly, wich was brilliant to work with.

Front and back.
I used papers from My Mind's Eye, brown Bazzill and the white papir is from my old stash

Behind Edwin I put a tag with the text Best Wishes, since
 Crafts 4 eternity asks for something hidden in your creation.
I even stamped a bird and a birdcadge and embossed it.

Moving along with the times wants to see something metal on your creation, and since I love charms, that one was easy for me. I used my metalstar/snowflake and under that I hang a metal bird.
You know I'm not that into Less is more.. I like more is more ;)
Just Magnolia has this Bingochallenge up, and I picked out: Gems, flowers and ribbons&lace
Magnolia stamp lovers wants to se ribbons and the last I'm entering today is
Cropstop, because they have a challenge up called: It's all about lace.

I have already showed a picture of my princess, so
today I want to show you my other sweetheart, Sebastian:

Wishing you all a good evening
Hugs, Jill

HEEELT underbart fint kort Jill.....du är verkligen så himla duktig du vännen!! Jag fattar inte riktigt hur det går till med dessa shakercards....??!! ser avancerat ut ialf! =)

Svar på frågan: Jag har använt ett papper som är lite tjockare än vanligt skrivarpapper till själva det turkosa pappret,till stämpeln testade jag att använda mitt akvarellpapper(200gsm) och det funkade bra,det enda man får göra om man har en bläckstråleskrivare är att tänka om lite med målningen för strecken suddas ut av vatten.....,men det är så lättsamt att ladda ner och spara på datorn och billigare känns det som.....fast det kanske det inte är om man räknar på vad patroner till skrivaren kostar osv....=)

Om du vill får du gärna mejla mej så slipper du få så långa tråkiga svarskommentarer här på bloggen,min mejl står på min blogg!! fast det går bra hur som,fråga på du,det är bara så man får veta saker....hi hi

Kramen till dej
