Good morning! Another quick post as I’m still out of town but wanted to share a quick set of shaker cards I created for RAKS!
I used Gansai Tambi watercolors to create watercolor washes on several pieces of watercolor paper. I let them dry overnight and then I added flecks of gold paint. The ‘hello’ sentiment is a die from Altenew and the label sentiments are also from Altenew! I filled each shaker with coordinating colors of sequins and beads and also gold sequins and beads!
Here’s a closer look at each one!
These were very inspired by the colorful watercolor shakers that Ruby created a few months ago! She sent me one for my birthday and I LOVE it! I love how simple they are to put together but how striking they are to look at! I didn’t get quite as much time for card-writing as I had hoped today but I did get one into the mail!

I really like this card design. I originally was thinking Brusho, Color Burst and then saw watercolor. Oh the options are endless. Add a little glitter, seed or bugle beads, sequins oh the endless possibilities. Thanks for the share.
Hi Jess, oh my favorite, can you hear me singing “I’m in heaven”, lol. Your color combos are always so beautiful. As always thanks for sharing and inspiring.
Love these! So fun!
