Lawnscaping Dots & Stripes Challenge #2

Hello fellow crafters!:)

Here today to share another card I made for the Lawnscaping: Dots & Stripes challenge.

I just received some of the new Lawn Fawn stamps and of course had to play with adorable set. So cute! I also purchased some shaker windows and wanted to give those a try as well so a shaker card it is. 

I created my own stripes on the card base just using some painters tape and the sponged on ink on top.  I wanted a sort of tone one tone subtle look for the stripes.  I stamped my images on some 120lb base cardstock and once again on some scrap paper to be able to cut out and use as masks on my original images to beable to sponge on my cloudy background (which didn't photograph well) and my grass, then peeled off my masks and colored in with Copic markers. I then take my shaker frame, filled it with my sequins, peeled off the backing of the shaker frame to reveal the adhesive and then lined my image paper on top. I then adhered that part on my card base and covered with a frame I just cut with my paper trimmer and ran threw a dot embossing folder.
I realized after I would have liked to fill my shaker up a little more with sequins, oh well! I also enjoy these shaker frames, they are a lot easier to use then acetate and playing around with foam take and having your sequins stick to the side (maybe that's just me) anywho, I may have to try them in different sizes and shapes.

Hope you like my shaker card:)
Thanks so very much for stopping by!!!
