Fishy Shaker for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps, and welcome to my new followers. I'm delighted to see you here :)

Today's card is the one that appeared on the packaging for Leonie's 'In a Spin' die from the Mixed Media collection. I can't tell you what a thrill it was to receive a packaged die from the lovely people at Crafters Companion.

To start off I cut an aperture in a piece of patterned paper with the die, and then cut it again from some sturdy white card.

 I fit the white version inside the aperture and taped it at the back.

Next I taped some acetate on the back and put foam tape all the way around the aperture.

To make my background I cut a vague fishy shape from a waste bit of rubber, glued it onto a block and stamped all over a patterned paper.

I glued this onto a 6x6 base card and sprinkled some sequins on before attaching the shaker aperture.

I've finished off with a lighthouse stamp from Inkylicious and a sentiment from the Flight to Freedom set stamped onto some die cut circles.

Don't forget you can win some fab Leonie stash, plus other goodies, in my giveaway.

Fabulous card. I am so thrilled you have used one of Leonie's dies, I greatly admired the circles one when she was on TV with them. Your fish look fabulous behind their creative tank. Super imaginative work. Thanks for sharing with us at Cardz 4 Guyz. Caz. DT.
