Vessel with the Pestle?


Well according to Jan it is the Chalice from the Palace!
(hope you know what I'm talking about - I'm not mad you know!)

Several weeks ago Jan set me a challenge and sent a vessel made from silk paper. She asked me to do something with it!
You can see her challenge here at Unlimited Textiles.

Well it has sat looking at me for quite a while. I had ideas but it is very delicate and wouldn't stand up to heavy embellishment.
At last! It came to me that it would look great with one of my organza flowers on it.



What finer way to finish such a palatial chalice.
Hope she agrees.

Love the flower and yes I think I know what your talking about. I love old films so The Court Jester with Danny Kaye right.

Fabulous! I couldn't agree more - it is certainly a chalice from the palace. I love it.

My daughter checked that movie out of the library yesterday. She is home from college for the summer and wants to watch some old favorites with her brothers.

Your flower is lovely! I like the one on the green pieced square too, nice contrast! I have purchased water soluble stablizer but have not played with it yet.

Thank you for visiting and commenting at my blog.

Thank you all for your lovely comments.

The Court Jester is a favouite film. Danny Kaye was such a funny man.

Molly Jean, the water soluble has so many uses you really have to have a play with it ;0)
