MFT Sketch Challenge #328: Soak Up The Fun Shaker Card

I’m back with another MFT Sketch Challenge. This is the sketch for this week:


I decided that I wanted to make a shaker card for this challenge using the
Soak Up The Fun Stamp Set. This is what I came up with:



These are actually pieces I had coloured for the 30 Day Colouring Challenge that I’m getting around to using now. I stamped images from the Soak Up The Fun Stamp Set in Versafine Ink on Canson XL Watercolour Paper and I heat set it so I could do some watercolouring. I used Daniel Smith Watercolor with a Silver Black Velvet Round Brush Size 2 and painted everything in then die cut the images using their coordinating dies. I did the bubbles afterward and just highlighted them with Copic Sketch Marker B00 and filled them in with Glossy Accents and set them aside to dry.

I die cut a stitched frame using the second largest die from MFT’s Single Stitched Line Rectangle Frames Die-namics out of orange cardstock, then die cut several waves with MFT’s Whimsical Waves Die-namics out of light blue cardstock. I ink blended the bottom of each wave piece with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

I cut a strip of dark blue and lime green cardstock, trimmed it, and adhered it at a diagonal in the middle of my card base. Then glued all my wave pieces in place in the centre.

I cut down some acetate to fit my stitched frame, adhered it with some Scor-Tape, then glued all my images down. I built the shaker window using 3M Foam Tape. I filled my shaker card with a variety of chunky glitter and confetti from Micheals, as well as some Darice 8mm and 5mm Iridescent White Sequins. I released the backing paper of the foam tape and adhered my shaker window to my card base.

Using MFT’s Blueprints 27, I cut a banner and stamped, “HOPE YOUR BIRTHDAY IS A SPLASH”, in Versafine Ink and heat embossed it with WOW Glitter Clear Sparkle Embossing Powder and adhered it to the front of my shaker window with 3M Foam Tape.


Hope you guys liked my entry. I’ll be back shortly with an entry for the Lawn Fawn Challenge blog.
