Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Sequin Star Shaker Tag

I made this shaker tag for a upcoming swap at Inky Fun Stamper's Yahoo group.  The theme of the swap is to make a tag using sequins or glitter on a tag.  

I used die cut set for my stars.  I cut one star out of acetate for the front of the large star to make a window for the sequins. The sequins were from a re-cycle Christmas card. I used some textured kraft paper for the first larger of the card. I then used Distress stains for colour.  I added some Christmas music then my stars.  The stars were  edged and coloured with Distress Inks.  To complete my tag I doodled with a white and copper gell pens. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a creative week.
