Decoupage - why do I sweat at the word?



Over at the challenge blog Unstampabelles, there is a chance to get outside your comfort zone, and to be a bit on the edge and create something that you wouldn't normally create.........in other words......

Challenge #62

Outside Your Comfort Zone Twist: a different edge

 TWIST have a different edge!
Make of this what you want as long as no stamps are involved

The prize!


I have a long standing antipathy with decoupage sheets........

They always make me sweat at the thought of making something reasonable with them.
I had a sheet from Crafty Bob's called a Scalloped Pocket card designed by Robyn Cockburn
It had white roses on it
I needed scissors and patience and good hand-eye coordination......perhaps at this stage I should say I am right hand predominant, and  I have a missing index finger on my right hand (over 50 yrs ago)  and a realignment of my thumb several years ago............I know, excuses, excuses........

2012

So, making something like this is always a challenge.....


But I did it.....


And it had a scalloped edge


And a pocket!


and it mostly goes together......


A gift pocket card!
