How To Create A Fearsome Frost Dragon Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends

I have made up a shaker card using the Frost Dragon image by Rick St Dennis. All images are available on Zibbit.

To create the background i stamped around the card blank with a texture stamp in blue and then added brusho powder over the top. I cut up dry wall tape and painted it metallic blue and then i added a stencil over the top.

To create the shaker box

1) Cut out the base with a large nesting die.
2) Cut out a piece of acetate from the same sized die.
3) Place a smaller die inside the large die and hold into place with tape.
4)  Now you have a frame, Cut out one from patterned paper and one from craft foam.
5) Glue the frame created with the craft foam to the base and once dry add beads and sequins.
6) Glue the acetate over the top and leave to dry.
7) Glue the frame cut from the patterned paper over the acetate and once dry adhere to card.

I coloured in the image using Prima Confectionary Watercolors and a water pen. I like the even amount of colour using them gives and i can still add shading if needed.

 I stamped around the frame with the texture stamp to give it a more grungy look.
