Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Frame It

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Anniversary/Wedding Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is

Frame It 

We are showcasing Memory Box Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Here is my card for the challenge inspiration. I used Under the Scene Collage Craft Die from Memory Box.

I started off my card by stamping Under The Sea Animals on 80lb Neenah White paper using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and colored them with copic markers. I used my Scan N Cut to cut the images, but you can use Under The Sea Animals Coordinating Dies.

Next, I cut a piece of 110 Neenah White paper using Under the Scene Collage Craft Die and Wonky Rectangles Dies. For the background panel, I ink blended a piece of Bristol Paper with Distress Oxide Inks : Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, and Broken China.
I also colored the small diecuts made from Under the Scene Collage Craft Die with copic markers.

In order to assemble a shaker, I glued a piece of acetate film on the backside of the panel, then I adhered foam tapes around the window. I also gluded two sea creatures and a few sequins on the ink blended background panel so that the animals look like they are under the sea.

To fill the shaker, I used old and new Pretty Pink Posh Sequins : Mermaid MixAquamarine Seed BeadsSparkling Clear Seed Beads4mm Sea Breeze4mm Aquamarine and 6mm Aquamarine3mm Sparkling Clear.

Once I assembled my shaker, I put it on a navy card base I made using Neenah Texture Navy card stock. Then I foam mounted Under The Sea Animals, and a sentiment from Messages For Everyday, which was heat embossed in white using Wow Opaque Bright Super Fine embossing powder. As a final embellishment, I added Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix and Mermaid Sequins Mix.

So now it's YOUR turn.
