And when I do it takes me all of 90 minutes to make! Rarely do I make a card on a whim - I usually spend quite a while thinking about it and working it all out which is why I generally have at least 6 or 7 cards or projects on the go at any one time. My time is limited and I have to plan it carefully and because I've been the domestic goddess this last week and done enough cleaning to last a lifetime (and its not over! and where the hell does all the bloody dust come from? I've only just cleaned it!!) I've had time to ponder.
Enough waffle. Here is the shaker card I've made for the Tiddly Inks challenge:
I made the card blank myself from a lovely large sheet of very nice silver card that I found (under Samuel's bed), cut out the aperture, stuck the acetate on, added 3d foam pads around the inside edge, added silver and pink seed beads and then the image (coloured with Promarkers plus chalked behind). I then added the frame to hide my rubbish knife lines, inked them and drew a border.
Then decided it looked a bit too bare and added the bunting. Papers are from my stash and so too the black embroidery thread. Good job its a very girly card as Jacob was quite taken with this offering too. Although he has asked for a shaker card for his Birthday (September). But not with beads. Sweets. I said I'd think about it......
