Now I realize I've used that blue and yellow paper AGAIN, two reasons; I needed to use a yellow colour on the moon, and - the scraps were in the folder in top of my scraps file! The gorgeous image is Baby Moon, one of Di's newer images... isn't it just too sweet? There's some shading already on the image, handy for you to use as a guide :-) I coloured with Copics and added STACKS of glitter, sadly it doesn't show in the pics ;-( then fussy cut the image. At the Cutie Pie Challenge there's the theme "use a cute digi", no problems I'm in. and Crazy 4 Challenges want to see a teddy bear, so in there too.
I've added this picture so you can see how the card works, though better examples and a tutorial on how to make a shaker card can be found here. The background paper for the shaker is from a digital kit by Passion Fruits Images, there are Day and Night skies. I added some tiny rhinestones and Stickles to the paper so that even when the card's not shaken there's a bit of sparkle in the sky. I used my new Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Circles dies to cut all the elements for the shaker... there was a surprisingly large amount of cutting! Instead of making a raised edge for the shaker from foam dots, as I've seen in some tutorials, I cut two rings from one piece of sticky backed foam and built it up that way... and it meant no "leaks"!! The acetate was from the set of dies, so that worked well :-)
I added some Shaved Ice Frantage, clear seed beads, tiny blue stars, and some silver ball beads to do the shakin'... and yes I DID nearly forget to add them to the "pit" before I glued on the acetate, just remembered in time. I edged the yellow and blue frames with silver cord from my stash. The sentiment was from a tag in Kaisercraft's Lullaby pad, I cut it to a cloud shape to suit, the other clouds are Memory Box dies, the star under the edge by the teddy is from MFT's Stacking Stars die.
At Sketch and Stash you can use any of the sketches from their catalogue this time around, bonus! I used #73, of course I used it for the inside of my card too, adding more of the Memory Box clouds and MFT stars.
Catch The Bug want things beginning with C... I have Circles, Clouds and Cute image, I'm in. I'm in Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge too, as well as the Anything Goes challenges at Charisma Cards and Through the Craftroom Door
Well that's it for today's card, hope you get a chance to join in with the challenge this time around, we have the fabulous Crafty Ribbons sponsoring, and don't forget if you use one of Di's lovely images you go in an extra draw!
I'll be back in a few days with another offering. Have a lovely weekend, we're off to my son Chris's later for his annual Christmas in July party. He hosts with his friend Amna (his faux wife, lol) and they wear cheesy sweaters and do the whole egg nog mulled wine thing, this year I got roped into providing my usual several dozen Christmas cake truffles, and TWO turkey breasts. Anyway until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
