I knew what I wanted to do for the MFT Sketch challenge this week, pretty much when I saw it. Had the whole thing planned out in my head, but that isn’t quite what I wound up making. After I saw their color challenge, figured I could incorporate both into my shaker card.
I knew there would be a slight edge around my card front, so took the time to ink each side in a different color (each one of the challenge colors. The inside of the shaker is Pineapple Yellow (it’s more difficult to see in the picture than in real life). I also used the yellow, orange, red, and bright blue as the colors of the sequins in my shakers. It may not be exact, but I definitely had fun with this one, both with colors and the sketch. The shaker part just makes it fun!
I actually used my Silhouette to cut the “bubbles” and their rings, though I could have used any of my circle cutters. I cut the front panel, then “offset” it to get the “rings”. I cut three of the rings in white, one in Blu Raspberry, and one in Pineapple. I kept the inside of the Pineapple to make the bottoms of the shakers, too. Used liquid adhesive to put them all together. For the front of my shaker, I used some organza. I like it as it allows the sequins to move around, without falling out. The stamp set I used is the BB Adorable Elephants from MFT. The ink for the sentiment is MFT Blu Raspberry.
Thanks for spending some of your time with me today!
