Fall Shaker Card by Dina Kowal

Dina Kowal shares and adorable Fall shaker card today using Boy in Leaf Pile, Leaf Cluster die, Layered Floral set,  and a large circle shaker pouch.

I just felt like watercoloring for fun today, and found this neglected fall image (Impression Obsession's Boy in Leaf Pile). It seemed like a fun image for a shaker card, so I went in that direction. I started by stamping a few extra images at different angles to fill out the pile of leaves so it would cover the bottom of my large circle shaker pouch - I didn't worry about masking, and just let the leaves overlap, since I knew the watercoloring would cover up those less-defined areas.

When I started watercoloring, I wet the entire area and just touched in different colored inks until I filled the space. I watercolored an extra portion of the paper too, so that I could diecut some matching leaves to fill my shaker.

I used the Leaf Cluster die to cut the watercolored leaves, and the leaves from the Layered Floral set to cut some from solid cardstock... I ended up cutting the leaves off the clusters so they'd shake a little better. ..and some closeups of the details. I love the look of those tiny watercolored leaves - I miss fall!


Have a great day!
