So here is my wallet card. Now I have to find some stuff suitable for card making to tuck inside the two pockets on the front before swapping this with some good soul in the challenge group!! This handmade paper is very attractive, but not very easy to work with when you need precision cuts. In my opinion it would be better to rip this and get that ragged distressed look.
The card was made with a slightly larger than A4 sheet of cotton, tree-free moonrock paper in the dark blue,and a very thin piece of banana fibre paper for the inner writing sheet. The folding of the outer paper (with the added thickness of the pockets) leaves fairly thick folds, so I needed to cut back a couple of protruding edges when the card was complete as they no longer matched edge-to-edge.
When you buy something from an artist, you are buying more than an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experiments. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are not only buying a thing, but a piece of heart, a part of the soul, a moment in the life of someone.
