The current challenge over at the Impression Obsession blog is to make a shaker card. They have these really cool Shake It Pouches that make it so easy. They come in a great assortment of sizes and shapes and can be purchased at the IO store. For my card I used the large circle Shake It Pouch.
I began by stamping K7017 Cardinals onto Cryogen paper with Memento black ink. Copics used:
Cardinal - R22, R27, R59
Beak - E95
Branch - E42, E43
I airbrushed BG11 into the sky, it closely matches the DP, the scan just does not show it well. Oh, and the best part, these pouches co-ordinate with the Nestabilities dies so it was a very simple matter to cut the opening in the paper as well as the red border. I used Diamond Dust Twinklets for the snow inside of the shaker, very sparkly!
The DP is from the Basic Grey Fruitcake collection. Finished size is 6" square. For more inspiration, be sure to check out Impression Obsession's design team creations. You can find links to them on the IO blog.
