Saturday Scribbles

Seems like I'm totally hooked on shaker cards at the moment. Last week I hadn't made any, now I've made three - my usual number to stop!

Today's shaker has another three to it - three challenges in one go.  Been a while since I've managed that.

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, the colours from Color Throwdown and the inspiration from CASE Study.  

So here's my card:

Funny how the watermelon ink looked a good match for strawberry slush in real life.

And a closer look at the shaker window.

First I cut the window from card and funky foam. In case you're wondering I use funky foam because I don't mind if it shows a bit, unlike foam tape which I wouldn't want to show. I got this idea from Aimes here.

Next I used the frame to pencil in a rectangle so I knew where to stamp the poppies and sentiment. I adhered the ribbon tab to the frame, popped in the sequins and stuck the frame down.  Lastly I attached the button tied with thread.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Remember & sentiment from Pretty Petals
Inks: Adirondack, watermelon; Memento, toffee crunch; SU, pool party
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles 
Other: sequins, funky foam, button and embroidery floss from my stash

Thanks for dropping by today. Best wishes for a wonderful weekend and don't forget to look out for AAA Cards new game tomorrow.
