This is my first shaker card, which i made for my son's 7th birthday. I decided to put the shaker stuff and image on the backside of the panel so the fishbowl looks more real. I stamped the crab onto a piece of decorative paper i made with melted crayons and cut it out. The background was done with the smackin' acetate technique and i added torn brown paper for sand (as well as real sand). The presents and starfish are colored with metallic gel pens. I sponged the inside rim of the fishbowl with craft white and embossed it with white EP to help the outline stand out. I wanted it to look like the crab is handing a present up out of the bowl, so i cut the image in half and pasted half on top of the fishbowl. I doodled the border with the Signo white pen. The corner accents were trimmed with deckle scissors and speckled with the bg stamp. This card was immensely time consuming but I love it! Thanks for looking.
