Today I'm doing the sketch challenge with Technostamper .
The challenge is now every first and third Monday so I did not feel pressured to get the challenge done in time.
For the sketch challenge I decided to make a shaker card using the self adhesive Fun Foam I had bought for my grandchildren. And, instead of a circle, I used a floral design using the Floral Frames which are about to retire. The stamp set I used was "Choose Happiness".
After adhering the DSP strip, the 3 layers were die cut using the Floral Framelit. The die did not cut through all 3 layers, but it left enough of an impression on the Fun Foam that I was able to match the frame to the impression and die cut the foam.
A piece of window sheet was then adhered to the wrong side of the Whisper white/DSP piece.
Using Tombo glue, the fun foam was adhered to the Whisper White/DSP piece, matching up the floral images as closely as possible.
On a separate piece of Whisper White card stock, the sentiment from "choose Happiness" was stamped using Coastal Cabana ink. It was die cut using a smaller floral framelit and adhered to the cardstock base using Tombo glue. I had previously placed a mark where the midpoint of this piece should be adhered. This I let dry really well before I added the In Color sequins.

While that was drying, the bird from the stamp set was stamped with Coastal Cabana ink and cut out. The edges were sponged with Bermuda Bay ink.
I was taken by surprise as to how sticky that fun foam was! It was really difficult to get the front of the card on straight as my fingers kept sticking to the foam. However, it is a neat way to make a shaker card seeing as the shaker frames will be retiring.
The bird was adhered at the lower right of the frame using a dimensional.
