Fintastic Birthday Shaker Card

I'm back again today with another fun "Fintastic Birthday" shaker card. I made this card for my little Godson Cristiano who turns 3 this year!

How cute is this little fishy stamp? 
The stamp set I used comes from Your Next Stamp - Snorkel Fun Fishy
Here is a closer look at Fishy!
And how cool are those bubbles!?!

To create the fish bowl I used a circle die. When making an incomplete cut of any die, place your die over the edge of the cutting plates so that there is no pressure on the area. Then I cut a straight edge across the top of the circle using a blade and ruler. 

I used my Spectrum Noir Markers (BT7, BT8, CT3, CG3, DR5, DR7) to colour this little guy in and added some Glossy Accents to the goggles.

For the background I blended some distress inks (peacock feathers) and spritzed it with some water to create the blotchy appearance.

For the sequin shaker mix I used clear sparkly sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and some Recollections Chunky Glitter.

To finish the inside of the card I did a little bit of watercolor smooshing over the sentiment and used the wonky stitched die from MTF.

For stamping I used memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

The patterned Paper came from American Crafts Shoreline Paper stack.
