Teach me Thursday

Hello everyone,

Happy Thursday!!!

It's Teach me Thursday over at My Creative Time!!
Means we are showing you any kind of tutorials,either by showing it with photos or Videos! And since i am not sure,about Videos i'de reather show you my tutorial with photos!! ;)

Ok,first of all,i am so bad when it comes to tutorials!! I am not the "WOW,i have amazing ideas,that the world needs to see" type of crafter!! haha

And even with this one,i had some help from my 10 year old daughter,as we where coloring eggs a few weeks ago! I bought a coloring Kit for her,which included,3 cups,3 egg colors and somce rice! You add some rice to a cup,add the color and egg and shake it!! The eggs looked so cool.But what i loved more,was how the rice looked after it!! ;) So,a shaker card was the next thing i thought of! :)

And here is what i used:
- Rice,
- Alcohol Inks,or i am pretty sure that reinkers will work too.But not Distress Ink reinkers.I tried   it,since these are the only ones i have.I already thought they wouldn't work,but i tried it anyways! ;)
- a cup,glass or whatever will work,i used this WOW! Foil Melt-It case
- I also cut down a piece of cardboard as my lid

First i added some rice to the foil case

 Than i added some drops of the Alcohol Ink...actualy a lot ;)

Closed it with the "lid" and shaked it for a few seconds

And here is the finished product! I had let it dry for about 3 - 5 hours,just to make sure i won't mess up my cardstock,when i add the rice to my card!

And here,i used some blue and red Alcohol Inks,since me as a purple lover need everything in purple!! hehe 

And here is my card
I also added some black sequins to the rice

WOW! Opaque Bright White Regular Embossing Powder,
WOW! Clear Gloss Regular Embossing Powder
Clear Wink of Stella,
Black Glitter Paper ( small stripe ),
Spectrum Noir Markers

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Hope everyone will have a great day!!

I never in a million years would have thought to use rice in a shaker card but I LOVE the idea. You are SO clever! This could be the next stamping craze!

What a cool card the rice was the greatest. What a way to think out of the box everyone uses glitter and sequins this is just above it all.

Jen Timko said...

Yep, you are brilliant! Such a clever and fun idea (and something I actually have in my house). Adorable card!
