This is for MFTWSC374 even tho it's a bit of a stretch of the sketch. I wasn't sure how big I wanted my scene to be... Made this for my 20 year-old nephew. Not sure that he's going to appreciate the "depth" that I went to to make this card for him. But, that's ok. For some reason I decided to make an aquarium scene with a shaker card element. I used Dena Rekow's tip on coloring silica beads from like shoe boxes, etc. Here is one of her videos showing how she does it. It would have been a good idea for me to watch this before I made my card... Therefore I added too much ink. Now, my aquarium rocks look like caviar. Oh well....
I did use severals stamps from the High Tide set. I used the sand, grass and water stamps. I used an aqua painter over some of them. My design is heavily inspired by Kim's (berlycece) card. I should have saved myself some time and just made her card! Oh goodness!

Well, I consider this an awesome shaker card but everything in crafting works as a building block for the next project, right? Beautiful coloring of the background, the seahorse and fish. Great job repurposing the shaker elements!
