Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper, Shannon (aka GracelynsMommy). I chose this card as my inspiration:
I focused on Shannon's:
-sentiment partially inside, partially outside the focal image
-added a shaker element
I started with a sheet of the new 6x6 Peacocks and Paisley patterned paper. I love the movement radiating from the centre and decided to take advantage of that by cutting my panel right out of the centre of it, using the stitched rectangle from Postage Stamp dies.
Next, I created my 'super' 12-point star by using one of the new star dies from Catherine Pooler's Starlights dies. I cut it once, turned it and cut again.
I stamped the 'star' in both Rockin' Red and Party Dress directly on my cardbase and then built a shaker around it. I added the rest of my sentiment and some sequins on the outside, to match the ones in the shaker.
