Dandelions in the wind

     Hey!  Remember me?  LOL  It's been quite a while since I've posted anything.  Lots of good stuff going on that takes up LOTS of my time so although I have been making cards, I just got around to photographing and editing them for posting.
     Today I have a cutie from Purple Onion Designs, Wishing (mouse and dandelion).  I don't do a whole lot of shaker cards but the idea popped into my head to add a shaker window behind the dandelion for this image.
     I used my Prismacolor pencils to color the image.  Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen was added to the dandelion head.  I also fussy cut the image and added the parts on top of the stamped card base.

     Hope all is well with all of you.

Love the placement of your shaker element, Tracy, as it adds interest without detracting from the super-cute image. Another fabulous card! Hope all is well xx

This is SO adorable, Tracy!! I LOVE your idea of adding the shaker window behind the dandelion! What a perfect visualization of blowing off those dandelion seeds. Such a sweet little scene, and as always, your coloring is just out of this world!

Oh, Tracy, I was just thinking about you yesterday! Well, this couldn't be any more cute and perfect! I've never done a shaker card myself...yet! Hehe! But this is perfect with the little mouse blowing on the dandelion. Makes it seem like the little seeds are inside the shaker. Sweetness! Looking forward to seeing what you've been coloring up! Send hugs and love! xoxo

So clever with the shaker in the background - I can just see those dandelion seeds blowing all around. Our kids use to love doing that but not if their father was around - he worried about how many more would be on our lawn!!!! LOL
