Sketch Inspired Shaker Card

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog. I am the author of this challenge. I also came up with the challenge theme. We are trying a triple choice approach this time. I did not have a particular challenge theme so I made suggestions to our blog moderator, Heather. Instead of choosing one theme, she decided to use all three themes for this challenge for a change. Use one, combine two or better yet, use all to create a card! And that is exactly what I did. Not to forget, this is the first time I created a sketch for a challenge. The other two themes are magical and interactive.

For this card, I am using the image from our sponsor, My Besties Shop. I printed this on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers and Prismacolor color pencils. I had a little bit of an exercise for my aging eyes since I printed this on a smaller scale. Good thing, I have my reading glasses to help me out. I added details to the image using my gel pen stash and Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen. I fussy cut the image afterwards. 

To create the interactive part while following the sketch, I temporarily taped the patterned paper and a gold shimmer pearl cardstock together so I can die cut a circle window at the center. I adhered a transparency on the back of the window panel using double adhesive tape. I adhered foam tape on this back side.

I adhered a clear thread to the back of the digital image. I positioned the digital image on the center of the clear window, print side down, I adhered the ends of the thread to the foam adhesive. I poured star sequins to the well created by the foam tape, closing it up with a white pearl shimmer cardstock. If I will re-create this project, I would be blending ink on this shimmer cardstock for some added interest. 

To complete the card, I adhered this to a top folding white note card. I heat embossed the sentiment on the same patterned paper using Wow! Gold Rich embossing powder. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Magical Sampler stamp set. I cut this into a strip and adhered this to the bottom right of the card panel, just like in the sketch. I drew in straight lines using a silver gel pen.

I created a circle frame for the shaker window by die cutting a patterned paper with the Simon Says Stamp Circle Stiched die and a My Favorite Things Circle Stax die. I brushed this frame with Spectrum Noir shimmer pen. I adhered this to the window, making sure it is lined up.

The digital image slides from side to side as you shake the card. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations at the Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
