Impression Obsession - What's Shaking?

Time for a new challenge from Impression Obsession! The Design Team was given the theme What's Shaking? to inspire our creations this week. I love seeing how everyone uses the IO Shaker Pouches. So come on and join us for this fun challenge and a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to shop for some new rubber from IO. Find all the details on how to play along on the Impression Obsession Blog

A Sad Goodbye!
 Julie Koerber, at Out To Impress, is leaving our Design Team.  Julie has been a member of the team since 2007 and her creative and beautiful art speaks for itself.  We will miss you Julie and send you good wishes and hopes you will join us for a challenge or two when you can.

I pulled out some of my very dwindling stash of Graphic 45's The Magic of Oz Collection for today's card. Impression Obsession has the perfect stamp set, Oz Collection II, to pair up with these papers. 

Since the challenge was about Shaker Pouches, I pulled out my sparkly seed beads. I  was pretty generous and filled my pouch almost entirely. I gently curved the red slippers and popped them up on top of the shaker pouch using a little Dimensional Silicone. On the bows of the shoes I added a little shine with Glossy Accents.

Here's the inside of the card...Both the sentiments on the front and the inside were airbrushed with a little Copic B95 before I removed them from the nestie. My card size is 7" x 4 1/4"
