Impression Obsession DT Challenge: What's Shakin'?

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a shaker card!  Here's my card, using the Jill clear set.

I colored up this little beach scene using reinkers from Ranger. After that was dry, it was super easy to attach the Shake-It Pouch. (I used the large circle pouch - but there are 8 different shapes to choose from, in addition to overlay cards, kits, and dies to create precise openings.) Here are a few pictures to show you how the pouches work:

Center your 'filler' on your colored image. It doesn't take as much as you'd think!

The adhesive edge of the shaker pouch is lined with a thin layer of plastic. I use a craft knife to catch the edge of it and pull it off.

Before I did my coloring, I laid the shaker pouch over the image and traced the edge of the circle. Making sure there wasn't any filler in the way, I laid the plastic piece over my image, adhesive side down, inside the outline I had created, then secured the edges by rubbing firmly around the shape.

That's the whole show! Here's how that filler looks in my completed card, all ready to be shaken....
