A Fish in a Jar

Hi My Crafty Blogs Friends

How has your weekend been? We have been quite busy as  my parents and my birthday are next week. On Saturday we took my parents out for lunch. In evening we took part in a quiz with some friends and our team came third it was all for charity so that was good. Today we had a meal with our daughter and her fiance and saw the film Guardians of the Galaxy 2 that was my choice. I do love my science fiction films and television.

A couple of weeks  my copy of Simply Cards and Papercraft  came through the post ( I have a subscription). I loved the stamps and dies that came with issue 162 of the magazine.


I did used the jar die to cut an aperture in the top layer of water colour card. Then I used Pixie Powders to decorate the sheet. 


The sentiment  stamp came with the set. 


Now on the sheet to go underneath I stamped the jar the the fish. They were coloured with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I used acetate in the aperture and foam tape to raise it up. I put some beads in to make a shaker card. 


There you  have it a birthday shaker card. 


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
