Challenge up your life: Challenge #18 Sequins

Hello Everyone,

how are you? Guess what, it's Challenge time and this time it's all about sequins!

Challenge #18 Sequins

I decided to make another shaker card, because they are just so much fun. Besides I had that idea, to use the flowers from Persian Motives (WPlus9) for a shaker.

I stamped the flowers on a piece of watercolour paper. I had marked the area I needed with the help of my stitched rectangle die before I started. Then I coloured the flowers as usual with my Inktense pencils and a lot of water. 

After the colour had dried, I die cut the panel and cut out the middle with a straight edge, an x-acto knife and some small scissors. That was a bit tricky in places. Then I glued my acetate to the back, added the foam tape and filled the inside with matching sequins.  I also glued a few sequins to the card base, so that there would be some sequins visible at all times.

I am pretty happy with the result, even tough too many sequins stick to the glue dots inside now. I meant to scatter just a few, but  obviously the glue dots I used are a bit too large, so other sequins got stuck to them. But I like it anyway.

So, time for you to join in, show us some cards with lots and lots of sequins!
