I have no idea what to call this...... so perhaps I'll show you the before picture first.
It's the bit leftover from a game my daughter had- the holes held chipboard cards and are about an inch square. This is how it looks now......
I painted the frame with PVA glue then dabbed with alcohol inks in pesto, terracotta and raisin. Then I stamped over the inks with a stamp (Aspire to be top left square) using archival ink. I stamped something for each aperture onto separate card square and coloured them with Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed, as well as a tiny bit of a lavender ink that was already on the card. The fairies and castle are my favourite little Lavinia stamps. A couple of the squares are covered in Glossy Accent, and most of them have some Stickles on.
I wasn't too keen on the green and orange chequerboard squares so I heated some UTEE in my Melt pot and poured it in along with some beads. I got some pockmarks on the squares by mistake, but you know what they say- there are no mistakes, so I rubbed some metallic rub on to them to highlight the bubbles.
Finally I sandwiched some orange ribbon between the front and back to make it into a hanging.
