Sugar Nellie Shaker Card


Hi everyone I hope you are all having a great weekend I am going to make this short as its almost 2am and I should think about hitting the sack.
For my card I have used this adorable manga image from Sugar Nellie,Promarkers to colour,DCWV Rose tinted christmas papers,Nestabilies cirlces and scallop circles,Gems,Cuttlebug snowflake die,White gel pen and polar white flowersoft.My personal opinion is that I think I should have used a colour flowersoft rather than the white as it doesn't seem to show up very well.

TOP TIP
When using acetate to make shaker cards wash your acetate in soapy water then dry this takes away the ststic cling so that whatever you use for your shaker won't stick to the acetate.

I would like to enter my shaker card into the following challenges:
Sugar Nellie Forum-Shaker card

Creative inspirations-Shaker card
Everybody Art-Untraditional Christmas

Top Tip Tuesday-Christmas

Thankyou very much for visiting me and any comments will be greatly appriciated
hugs

The colours are lovely on this & the white Flower Soft the right choice definitely - the snow effect would have been spoilt with a different colour & I like how the coat & hat trim are echoed in the sahker.
