Ombre Sequin Shaker + Distress Oxide Watercolor Background

Hello, friends! I’m stoked to be back with a new card making video tutorial. Last week I had a week off work/school (Fall Holiday), but sadly enough I was sick for the entire week. 😔 I was suffering from a sinus infection. Thankfully, I’m finally feeling better and I’m back to card making, blogging and teaching at kindergarten.

In this video I’ll be showing you how to make an ombre sequin shaker and how to create a quick and easy watercolor background with Distress Oxide ink pads.

I started out with a piece of Canson Watercolor paper that I had already cut to 4 1/4 inch x 5 1/2 inch. Using the Trio of Trees stamp set from My Favorite Things, I heat embossed snowflakes all over the paper.

Next, I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink to create a blended background. I randomly applied the ink to the card stock and blended everything together. Then, I used a Ranger Mister to spray water all over the card stock. Finally, I applied some water droplets and picked those up with a tissue. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! ❄️💙

After making sure my Distress Oxide background was dry, I used the Fa La La die for my shaker. I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the card stock and created a frame for the shaker using Fun Foam and Tonic Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Next, I filled up the shaker with a bunch of blue and clear sequins. To finish off the card, I embossed a simple sentiment banner. 

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. 💙😘
