After several stops and starts, I eventually got all the beads stitched on. You were then meant to glue it to the piece of gold card provided, but I thought I must be able to do something better with it than that. I got out my Inktense blocks and coloured in the background and wetted it. I was still not happy so I added some Quink ink, then I ran it under the tap. It took ages to dry. In the meantime I had found a piece of denim for the background which I had glued to the reverse of the gold card. (Bet you can see why it takes me forever to make curtains!!)
Not sure what I am going to do with it now ... perhaps it will get posted to someone one day ... in the meantime it will go into a box, much the same as lots of the things I play around with!!
