Friday has rolled around quickly again which means its time for another challenge at Just Add Ink! For this challenge we have a brilliant sketch for you to create with:
Your more than welcome to turn it around or go upside down. Whatever takes your fancy!
As soon as I saw this, I immediately thought of a shaker card. I also had a paper pad that I've been itching to use that would give this card a glamorous look as I had seen another challenge photo that inspired the papers and colours I would use.
This is the inspiration photo for the Runway Inspiration Challenge # 82. Isn't this dress breathtaking! Love the sheerness of the skirt and all that gold dotted around. I also loved the contrast between her beautiful pale pink skin and the darkness of the dress. This is why I chose the soft pink and black for my card.
I adhered a piece of the black patterned paper to the card front. I then die-cut the rectangle and then the circle from that piece. I also die-cut another rectangle from white CS for the base of the shaker and adhered a piece of the same pink paper to it, so you would see it through the shaker window.
After gluing in some acetate, I added the tiny gold star sequins, put a layer of foam tape and then adhered the back panel. The shaker was glued directly to the card front. I then added the die-cut banner. Lots of shimmery gold goodness!
The patterned paper is from My Minds Eye 'Fancy That'. The stitched-rectangle die is from Pretty Pink Posh and the circle die from Couture Creations. The pre-cut and printed banner is from Rosies Studio and the sequins from Papervine.
Will also link this to the Simply Create Too Challenge # 83 where their theme is 'No Digi's or Stamped Images'.
And will link to the Virginia's View Challenge # 14 where the theme is:
