Reverse Confetti - Stock Your Stash Challenge

Hey there!    I am sharing my card that I made for the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge!     I just love this challenge, you can make whatever card you want no sketch or colors to follow just make it in the them of the month.   June is Hello and Just Because.  Well I went all out for this card.    I don't do shaker cards that often because I usually end up messing something up and then there is sequins and sparkle everywhere....on the floor, all over my desk, static clinging them everywhere!  But I survived this card!   Whew!    I also broke out my Zig markers which I have not used in FOREVER!    

To make the card, I watercolored the images from Reverse Confetti Moon Men and colored with my Zig markers and Canson Watercolor paper.    It definitely has been awhile and I need to practice more with these markers.    I die cut the images with the Moon Men Confetti Cuts.    

For my background, I used Distress Inks and ink smooshing technique to create the galaxy.   Normally, I would add a lot of black in but I decided to go for a bright blue galaxy and used Blueprint Sketch and Mermaid Lagoon.   Once it was dry, I actually ink blended onto the edges that still were more lighter than the center.    I white heat embossed some stars and the constellation onto the background.     

For my sentiment, I white heat embossed a greeting from Simply Sentiments to go along with the challenge!   I added my images to the window plastic popping some up with foam tape and added others directly to the clear panel.   

Now for the shaker portion, it actually worked out for me this time.   I used the Reverse Confetti All Framed Up Confetti Cuts to create my frame out of Midnight card stock.  I added a thin strip of double foam tape around the shaker window.  I piled up sequins in the middle - mixture of various companies and types of sequins.   I wanted a ton of sparkle.  I then die cut three stars from silver glitter paper to add to my shaker.    

Speaking of sparkle, I think I may have gone a little a little wild, I added Tonic Crystal Glaze to the astronauts and the space ship window.   I covered several images with my Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter brush....AND...... broke out my Ranger Distress Stickles in Diamond and added bits and pieces all over the planets!  

That is it for me!   But hey... you still have time to participate with the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge and be eligible to win a gift certificate to the RC Store.   Click on this link to find out more details on the challenge!
