Digi. Stamp Shaker Card

We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog. The challenge theme is Things That Fly. Our sponsor for this challenge is Polkadoodles. The image I am using is Jasper Hot Air Balloon.

I printed the image on Neenah Solar White cardstock in greyscale. I colored the image using Prismacolor color pencils and using Sakura Souffle pens for accents. I fuzzy cut the image leaving a small border around it.

To assemble the card, I taped a string on the back of the fuzzy cut digi. I created this to be a floating digi. but when the card is all assembled, the digi. would not move at all. My frame for the shaker card is a stacked die cut using Pretty Pink Posh Scallop frame die. I glued the end of the strings on the bottom stacked frame piece. If I will re-create this card, I will lean more to adhering the strings to the top of the stacked frames, closer to the acetate. A hard lesson learned but despite losing this feature as originally designed, it is still a shaker card. Who wouldn't want a shaker card?

I used a cloud patterned paper as background. I inked the patterned paper with Broken China Tim Holtz Distress Oxide. I spritz the area with a shimmer spray. I dried the paper using a heat gun to control the warping of the paper.

I have no place to stamp the sentiment on the patterned paper so I stamped the sentiment on the acetate. I prepared the acetate with anti-static powder tool. I stamped the sentiment from Ellen Hutson Total Random Sayings stamp set with Versamark ink using the Misti Stamping tool. I poured Hero Arts white embossing powder to the stamped sentiment then heat set it making sure the heat gun is warm. I was also moving the heat gun constantly while melting the powder to prevent warping the acetate.

I poured various sequins to the center of the patterned paper, then adhered the stacked frame on top. I made sure all the edges are sealed. No one wants an escaping sequin, right?

To finish off the card, I adhered this shaker to a 4-1/4"x5-1/2" teal cardstock. I adhered this to a top folding notecard. I rounded the edges using a We R Memory Keepers corner chomper.

Thank you for visiting my blog. We hope to see your creations in this new challenge. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
