For Day 2 I was inspired by Naki Rager who used a clear plastic bag as a shaker element for a card. I didn’t have any cellophane bag that i thought would work. I did consider some clear plastic and the fuse tool, but my skills with the fuse tool are definitely suspect. I anticipated entirely too much anxiety and frustration to try this today. I settled on acetate sewed into a shaker bag. It worked out quite well.
When I started out this morning I thought I would get a few things done. Little did I know that casing Kristina’s pull out card would become my life’s work!
I am hoping that the Queen of England is on my Christmas card list, because nothing less than royalty is worthy of this card after the number of hours put into it.
Nothing really went wrong in the construction, it just has a lot of steps. By the time, I got to the point of painting the poinsettia, my hands were shaking with nervousness. It is rather hard to watercolour small images when your hands are shaking.
All is well in the end, as I liked the result.
