Well, it seems like last week's WOYWW was months ago...almost years...forgotten what it's like... That is of course one BIG fat lie but I thought I would at least start off my post a little differently! For the Blogistical innocents out there, it's time for a weekly nose around many a workdesk. Join in here at Julia's. This is my offering for today...
This all started off as an ATC on Kraft card stock and just grew from there. As you can see all the wonderful things I saw this weekend show left their mark...fabric, stitches and textures galore! The back is an old book cover, lightly stamped with white Stazon. In reality the red satin ribbon is a lot darker and despite trying a million settings and apertures the camera just didn't like the sheen. So please imagine a luscious 1940's lipstick if you can!
Still in love with the Papillion stamp set and trying out every one of those beautiful butterflies! The great phrase stamp is by Paper Artsy. Just love to stamp on different surfaces...paper, fabric, mica and see what happens. Here I've used Archival ink on the fabric and then heat set it.
Our Creative Corner - an ATC on Kraft with certain colours. I've gone for cream, chocolate and red. I've layered up the ATC on painted cardboard, adding colour and texture with Distress powders and inks.
Bring Back Beautiful challenge over at Flourishes. There the theme is muted colours, so even with a hint of red, it still seems fitting.
A close-up of the ATC where you can see one of my favourite vintage lace trimmings which alas won't last forever...time to hit the flea-markets. A girl can never have too many trimmings.
So there we go...lots of big piccys for you to look at. If you saw my DT sneak preview from last week and forgot to check in Monday, well here is the Diva in question! More details here and a great Hats Challenge at Simon says Stamp & Show!
That's Wednesdays bulletin from La-De-Dah. Looking forward to a peek around all your desks and a big thank you for calling by.
