My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #321
Back again, twice in one day!!! Here with the My Favorite Things sect has challenge #321. I started out following the sketch exactly....but then my shaker window didn't have the right diecut.....it's still relatively close.... I used MFT's 'The Whole Herd' for this card, and I used a crafter's workshop chicken wire stencil for the background using Tim Holtz distress inks. I colored in the cows and chickens using copic markers. I used Papertrey Ink clear cardstock to back the shaker circle (the large one), the black cardstock is Bazzill, the white is Neenah. I used Tim Holtz sponge distresses to spread the ink out. I added fun foam to the back of the main panel, and diecut in the same holes to make the shaker component. The sequins used are 28 Lilac Lane (I love these little tins, they are LOADED with sequins of different sizes and colors in the same family....the price point is great too!). I even decorated the inside of the card, which I am obsessed with lately....a card isn't complete until I do this.....I used the chicken image again, along with the nest, and water colored a little grounding image below, using Kuretake watercolors.
