Boo To You!

Hello,   I have a fun infinity shaker Halloween card for you today using the digital stamp image called Halloween Moon by Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studio.   This is a digital stamp, so you just click and buy, it is delivered to your email address virtually immediately and you can then proceed to print the image using your home printer and immediately have some creative fun with it!

To create this card I first ink blended an A2 panel of white cardstock using Distress Oxides.  I slid this panel sideways into a stamp storage pocket for a really nice snug fit.   I popped open the end by squeezing the edges of the cardstock carefully and tipped in a variety of shaker filler contents in a blend that suited my planned colours for the entire card.  Once I was satisfied with the mix and the degree of fill, I wrapped the excess of the stamp pocket around the back of the panel and securely adhered it down using my tape runner.   I then applied that to a cardstock base.   Everything else happens on the outside of the pocket!
I printed my Halloween Moon image on Copic friendly cardstock and then trimmed down the image using some fussy cutting.  I coloured the image using my Copic markers, here's my colour palette:-
Witch Costume - W9, W7, W4, W3, V01, V12, V15
Hair - E000, E42, E43, E44, E51
Pumpkin Bag - YR82,  E93, E95
Bear - E43, E42, E41, W5, W3
Moon -  RV000, RV10, RV02
Ground - RV000, RV10, W2, W1
I then adhered the image to the top of the pocket using my tape runner again.
Finally for the giant sentiment I die cut the Boo To You Word Die from Hello Bluebird Stamps from black cardstock and applied in the same way.
Try and make an infinity shaker if you never have before.  These are by far the best and the easiest of shaker cards, the contents move about freely and don't stick to anything.
Happy crafting!
