Hello and welcome again all you WOYWWers, hope you have had a lovely crafty week...
Wednesday can't come fast enough... ooh does that sound rather sad saying that - it's cause I'm well and truly hooked at looking at your workspaces already and this only my 4th WOYWW – thanks Julia.
Not sure what I’m waffling on about? WOYWW = Whats On Your Workspace Wednesday, where a lot of blog hopping and fun takes place -
so take a peek at Julia's stamping ground blog for all the details and to join in the fun.
On my workspace today is the completed New Home card that was barely started last week. And the stamps I had out turned into a fairly OK Steampunk card after all..
Also on desk a few bits I have been experimenting with…
There are 2 papers made with embossing folder, aquamarker pens water and loo roll.
There’s a strip of black oven liner, cut off main piece on desk, to stick double sided tape on to add foil and add colour with permanent markers or alcohol ink - see border on Steampunk card below.
And I was playing with the 'plastic leftover thingy' that housed some Tim Holtz cogs/time pieces in. Into one of the circle segments I added some glitter and bits of sequin waste, then filled it with 'Klear' floor polish and finally laid circle of paper on top to be the backing. Then had to be patient waiting for it to dry.
Just wanted to see how the ‘Klear’ dried and if the ‘thingy’ could be cut up to use on a card.
I didn't try the 'caught in crystal' technique with it yet as need to sort out everything I need to do it first.
I think 'Klear' floor polish hasn't existed for a while but has been re-branded as 'Pledge Multi-surface wax' would love to know if anyone tried this technique with that.
Also somewhere there is a screwed up bit of sequin waste which curled up like shrink plastic when heated up – and Yes Shoshi you were so right..good ventilation was required – opened the window but the wind was in wrong direction and blew the fumes right at me… cough..cough…gasp…
NEW HOME CARD
Card background was printed out using an Artylicious CD design by Glenda Waterworth.
Used a Martha Stewart border punch and some other various dies for leaves and swirls.
Coloured in stamping with promarkers.
Oasthouse stamp by Stampendous. Woman by Creative Stamps and message stamp by Kanban.
Used Inkadinkado and Andy Skinner stamps. Docraft cog dies on silver card and coloured with permanent markers as I was too lazy to get my inks etc out. The foil tape was using Kanban foil and markers.
Stamped the balloon onto some handmade paper I'd made some time ago.
PLAYING WITH EMBOSSING FOLDERS
Wanted to see what would happen if used aquamarkers on embossing folder, spritzed with water and laid folded loo roll on top, then spritzed again with some more water and then run through embossing machine.
|Plenty of sequin waste left to choke on! |
The jar on right is filled with plastic cake decorations, I cut off the nobbly bits that
go in the cake so they are then flat and easy to glue on a card.
|More shelves - with old ice cream containers and the red stripy|
long box was a cassette holder and now houses border dies etc
Well I've waffled on long enough and you've places to go and things to do... so thanks for stopping by and for any comments left, which is much appreciated.
Happy crafting and have a good week.... Gill x
