As soon as I saw this adorable Polar Bear¬†by Kenny K¬†I knew I would have to make a shaker card.I’ve not made one in ages and they seem to have made a resurgence in the crafting world more recently,mostly filled with sequins as part of a newish trend too but I couldn’t find mine ūüė¶ Does that imply I have have too much craft stuff?NEVER!Things have been kept simple here with the White on White (not done that in a quite a while too),minimal colouring in pale blues,clear micro beads added to the shaker element and clear dew drops for a cool watery feel.The sentiment I printed out using Word to give this a male theme with the intention of it being¬†for my DH in preparation for Father’s Day ūüôā

Keeping it Pengu-in the Family

cypdt24thnov 001

At¬†Craft Your¬†Passion¬†this week the challenge is Baby It’s Cold Outside.We have the fabulous Delicious Doodles¬†as our¬†sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don‚Äôt forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I thought I’d try something different with Penguin Family by Delicious Doodles.As the image is shaded I only added touches of cool blues in two shades of Copic Markers.After seeing demos using microbeads and double sided adhesive sheets I wanted to give this a go.It’s fun!!But you do have to watch these teensy little spheres¬†don’t go everywhere ūüėČ I do have to point out that both image and sentiment show a lot clearer IRL.Think there is a bit of glare from my lamp bouncing back.
