Pull Out Card

I've been visiting my family in Brighton, and house hunting along the South Coast, this week so I missed WOYWW for the first time since I joined in the fun many months ago. I haven't had internet connection as the hotel's Wi-fi is limited to 20 minutes in their reception area.
I'm now linked up in my daughter's home whilst baby sitting so thought I'd post the card from last Sunday's fab fun workshop we had in Padgate organised by my friend Jayne. 
It was really great that Tracey, who I linked up with through WOYWW, came along to the workshop. Lovely to meet up and nice to get to know a WOYWW personally, face to face and we had such a lovely day together.
This card is an attempt of a pull out card that I did some year's ago in a workshop given by my lovely friend from Vicky Stampers....Lynne, aka Wacky Wilkie! I had to figure out for myself how to make another so I played around and finally cracked it. I was hoping Lynne would be there on Sunday to advise me but as she wasn't I just had a go and it didn't turn out too badly.
There is a rotating band inside which moves out the inner panels if a tab is pulled.
 First I made the background from Silkies. They didn't give the great marbled effect that the Smooches so I just dabbed them onto my non stick sheet, spritzed them a little then moved my card around over the colour. You can see the effect achieved in the photo below 
 The card front with the sides closed away.
I'll be back in a day or two to catch up on all I've missed in blogland so I hope you've all been busy making lots for me to see.

Lovely card Jo and easily remembered by you. Was getting worried about you not blogging but did wonder if it was something to do with access at the hotel.

Neither I participated WOYWW this week - the wednesday somehow slipped by... Yesterday I posted a pic of the ready tin case, I was working with last week.
Your pull out card is fab! I have made a couple of them and love the technique!

(need to get a new computer - this makes me crazy... and I think this mouse is sick... :( !!!)

I'm sorry I didn't get to see this in the flesh on Sunday, Jo - it's gorgeous! You're so clever with backgrounds!

hmm your comments box is a bit wappy mississ,

gonna have a go at this engineering project of a card...

take it easy on the house hunting front - it can be soul destroying, don't forget to insist on the Well Daylight Lit Studio annex and spare room for visiting craft pals to rest in (no sleep for crafters),

How fabulous - the mind boggles at how it all works but the end effect is gorgeous.

Hope you are enjoying your family time, Jo. Any luck on the house hunting front?
Your card looks very ingenious. I love the backgrounds you created with your Silkies. I must have a play, mine are still unopened.
