Happy birthday, my friend - Inspiration Destination #129

Wednesday May 31, 2017
Welcome to another challenge at Inspiration Destination #129   we're shaking up the challenge ANYTHING GOES / opt. SHAKER card
Well this is not my favorite technique but I wanted to give it a try again and being on the DT I don't think I have the option that you do... LOL ... I have only made one or two shaker cards because I get so confused on what all to do. I think maybe I should of made the foam wall around the balloon one more row higher.. Also the sequins are sticking to the inside of the clear film.. I was afraid to use my embossing static powder tool because I did not want powder to leave a film.. now that it is done I guess I could of used a fabric dryer static sheet.. Duh.. I think maybe that would of worked?? All in all I am happy with it.. I took my Stampin up itty bitty background stamps and some Versa Mark ink and stamped on the pink. I also used an over all large star stamp and Versa Mark and stamped the kraft. I use the balloon die from Simon Says and I used a My Favorite Things beary special image and die and cut off the balloon he was holding and added some floss and added the bow and string into his hand. I colored the image with copics and used the sentiment from MFT and heat embossed it with Stampin up black. I used sequins and micro mini beads in the shaker card and Nuvo drops in teal on the card. I added some white gel pen dots to the bear. Head over the Inspiration Destination site and see what the Design Team created get some ideas if you need help.

Awww . . .this is so cute!! Love that adorable little bears! And I love shaker cards and think this one came out really well!

What an absolutely delightful shaker card! I really love how you made the shaker portion fit right into the scene so perfectly. And I like how all the bling and sparkly things inside your balloon stand out so nicely against the lovely neutral background. The stars are such a nice touch the coloring job on your bear is amazing! Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
