WOYWW #212 - Fantastic Friend

Hi, guys!  Today is Wednesday, so you know what means!  I am sharing what is on my work desk with you! Thanks to Julia of Stamping-Ground for this weekly desk-snooping fun!  Here I'm starting to work on a birthday card for my good friend Asia.  As you can see, I pulled out stamps and fun papers.  I just picked up the Ten Seconds Studio metal tools and they are there waiting to be used, too!


Here is the completed card!  I had fun, as I got to use my Stampers Anonymous Blue Print stamps, and my Tim Holtz French Industrial paper. The fan is heat embossed using Ranger Platinum embossing powder. I like the look of that one better than the silver color as I think it gave it a vintage feel.


Supplies:
Stamps: Stampers Anonymous, House Mouse
Paper: Tim Holtz French Industrial, Gina K White
Ink: Versamark, Versafine
Misc.: Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder, Hemp Twine, Corner Rounder

I am very happy with how it turned out.  I am going to enter it in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Stripes.  I used large striped paper from the Tim Holtz paper pad, and smaller striped paper from the pad and made tabs along the side.  The hemp even has stripes in it, too!

Thanks for visiting with me today!  I appreciate each and every one of you!  I hope to visit some of your desks today as well!

Until next time!

That card is so cute! I love Tim Holtz products. Yes, I don't know why it suddenly occurred to me to get out the old typewriter and type on tags...but now I love it for art journaling. Yesterday I was typing my sewing list on a piece of sewing pattern instructions from a vintage sewing pattern--too fun. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #14

Thanks for stopping by - your my first comment blog! I have been doing Pyrography for a few years now, but still struggle getting the proportions right. I usually trace the outline of a bird etc from a picture in a book, or from our own photos, and then carbon paper that onto the wood. I can then do all the detail freehand. One coaster takes a couple of hours to trace and carbon onto the wood; another hour or two to pyro graph the design and then about ten minutes for each coat of varnish, leaving at least four hours drying time between each coat. The coasters I have just done are on my home page. Thanks again, John W. #105

Hi Winnie, LOVE that card, and you are right, the Pewter powder does give it a vintage feel. It's lovely. :)

Thanks for the lovely comments on the canvas project. I will post the finished piece on my blog and link it up next week. All the details will be there.

Thanks for dropping by and many apologies for the late visit.
