WOYWW #247

Good morning WOYWW's, missed you all last week, just forgot what day of the week it was - only just remembered what day it was this morning - is it my age? or just another busy week at work? - bit of both I think! Anyway, my desk this week is from a recent commission I did for a friend at work, the sort of commission I like, one without any specific requirements - they always work out better like that.

and a few close ups:

The card was made entirely from white card and one ink pad (wild honey distress ink), with a few extra twiddly bits

And cos I had a couple of birthdays this week, some finished cards;

and this one was made with the left over bits

That's all for now, off to Julias blog to look at everyone else's desks.

See you all next week

WOYWW #245

Good evening, another late one this week, don't have an excuse this week, just had such a busy week so far (and its still only Wednesday) that I forgot what day it was until I was on the way to work! Anyway, here is my desk:

and a closer look
You are probably wondering what these are, those of you who follow me know I'm a big Sheena Douglass fan and these on my desk are the start of the Faux leather technique that she demonstrated on Create and Craft recently, however this is as far as I've got with them, I'll try and finish these before next week. The embossing folders are Sheenas as well (well not these particular one - these are mine, but you know what I mean!). Here is a close up:

I love these designs, really different. Now in the demo she used kraft card but as I hadn't got any I used old manillia folders from the office and they worked just as well.

That's all for tonight, got a birthday card to make, but not before I pop over to Julias blog to look at the other desks

Bye for now

just a quick post this morning as running late (well later than normal). My desk for this week looks like this

Forget all of the above, it is now evening, laptop/internet were not happy this morning, so take two:

These are the backs of my backgrounds, and now for the fronts.....

The above image is a stencil that I have versamarked (is that a real word??) through and then used white embossing powder.

As the above are still in their "raw" state here is a completed card I made for a crafty friends birthday

yep, still love my Lavinia stamps

Close up of the frame, made using gilding wax

That's all for now, off for a late visit to Julias blog to look at all the other desks

Bye for now
