Gabriel Loves Tubing - With A Twist

I challenged myself at the beginning of this year to try new things with my card making. 
Shaker cards have always fascinated me so I thought I would give it a try on this card - or a portion of it anyway. 

Should I have tried a shaker card with such a small area for my first one - probably not - will I do another shaker card in my future - absolutely! 





After colouring Gabriel with alcohol markers (list below) I coloured him again to make the shaker portion of my card. This is the first time I have tried doing a shaker card. I learned a thing or two and I will do another one - a bigger one! 
The tape I used has "glue" on the edges as well so the sequins stick to it but when you're using double sided tape - once it's down, it's down! Lesson learned :) but I had fun doing it! After fussy cutting the image, I made the shaker portion of the card and popped it up with pop dots. 
Some twine, brads, a star fish charm and some black doodling finish off my card.
