The surprise: a spread in my Hand AB

Fabric can be as much fun as paper.

This is an interactive page in my Hand AB where the viewer can open the surprise package. I began by decorating the background using Staz-On black ink, then lime green and metallic lavender acrylic paints. I then added the surprise, all wrapped up in a pretty sheer green bow.

When opened, you see the surprise. I sewed a piece of decorated card stock to the material, then added a polymer clay hand.

Here is a detail of the hand I made using a rubber stamp and copper polymer clay.
