I'm down to one post a week now ..... too much to do.
This week i am going to my nephew's wedding and left the card making to the last minute as the wedding is on Thursday. I spent a long time designing and eventually making a fascinator to wear (not finished yet I still have some colouring to do !!! ). I will post another day if it works out
I also wanted to make something for Grungy Monday and Mojo Monthly I decided to make them altogether. Also here is my desk too. What's that all about see here Julia Dunnit is in charge of the worlds desks so pop over and have a good nosey. stamping-ground
On my desk is the last card I am just finishing (well, I have to make dinner sometime! and a girls gotta eat).
This is the first card I made .... for the grungy monday challenge studiol3. which is all about masks and Tim Holtz wonderful masking techniques see here timholtz.com.
I quite liked the look of this card, the heart is the mask. The heart stamp is from Papermania.
I like the way it seems to 'pop' off the card, however I dont think the colouring is quite right for a wedding card so this fitted with the Mojo Monthly idea of changing faces.... ie using the same stamps for different styles. my-mojo-monthly-november-changing-faces.
This is the 2nd card.... much simpler. I simply embossed 2 hearts with copper powder, cut 1 out and then layered it on top of the 2nd. I embossed the initials with the same colour and added the ribbon.
This is a tag I made a while ago ( another grungy monday piece I think), but it is using the same stamp and looks completely different.
This is the last card I made. The heart is embossed in red.
I didn't intend to make it into a Christmas card .... it just happened, just by adding the appropriate ribbon and some green brads. I think I might give it to my handyman, it is quite lovey dovey !!!
This card is also suitable for the stampman challenge of collage the stampman challenges.
I just have sometime to look at your desks now Happy peeping on WOYWW .
