The All Things Sugar Nellie Forum Challenge this week is to make a Shaker Card. I only had a very small piece of acetate from which I could just manage to punch out a 2.5 x 1.5 inch rectangle with which to construct the shaker element. After a few mishaps (see below) I had my shaker which I teamed with a couple of the accessory stamps from Sugar Nellie's Home Grown Autumn Kit. I already had an idea for the layout & was working on it when I realised that it fitted the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge "wide interpretation" brief from this morning's post. I am also just within the deadline for entering Bunny Zoe's Challenge 5 which has an autumnal theme.
So to my little adventure. When attaching the acetate to my carefully punched out leaves panel I was waiting for the Glossy Accents to bond when I noticed that the leaf panel was on my bench, not between my fingers - I'd used the wrong piece of cardstock. I managed to prise the pieces apart & resorted to lighter fuel to remove the sticky mess from my little piece of precious acetate, rinsed & dried it off - I breathed a sigh of relief when it was usable. Unfortunately the micro beads weren't co-operating either - the lid insisted on coming off the little container suddenly strewing beads all over my work surface & floor. Ever tried to catch these little things? I rescued as many as I could then had to coax the remainder from around my assortment of containers & marker pots etc.... with the vacuum cleaner.
