More watercolour practise.  This one ended up as a card.  Wouldn't like to admit how many attempts end up in the bin!

Anything but a Card at Craft for the Craic

This month at Craft for the Craic we want you to make - Anything but a Card.  We welcome all types of crafts so let's see what you've made!

Inspired by Dawn Woleslagle's beautiful shaker tags, I plugged in the Fuse Tool to make some shaker bookmarks.  The stamps were white embossed onto watercolour paper then I had fun adding layers of watercolour and Perfect Pearls splatters and spray.  

The fuse tool has worked perfectly up till now and looked to have sealed all the edges properly but some of the tiny bits were escaping.  I think it's best to add double rows of fusing when you have very small shaker elements.

Can't wait to see what you've crafted for the craic!
