Shy Bear in a Shaker

Of leaving Thailand, one of the things I miss a lot is the ocean. Living here in Kansas, the closest beach is probably at least a good 12 hours drive from home. So, I made this card to fill the void and the yearning for the ocean inside me, you might say.

This card features an easy shaker the kind I like to make. No messing around with foam-cored board or foam tape and frame. I just used one cello bag large enough for the image and filled it with the theme of the card. The Shy Bear image is from I Brake for Stamps. Stamped with Memento - Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah paper and coloured in with Copic pens.

A close-up for you to see I put in my shaker the sand and the sea :) I coloured my star fishies with sharpies to keep the bold and bright theme for the card. Told ya, I am so ready for the cold to be over!

Until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!
