Today however we are feeling a little sad at the sudden passing of a fellow Aussie and WOYWW-er - Eliza of Queenartopia last Wednesday. My thoughts and prayers are with all who loved her, especially family and friends. I first came to know her, as did many of us, not long before she had rescued Yoda her beloved cat, there was always a Yoda pose for us to enjoy on Eliza's WOYWW. Eliza will be really missed by so many.
To my messy desk:
|Well, this is a "To Do" desk really .. on left for the hand made stamp (shown last week, two posts below) carved by RosA which was stamped and embossed - binned the other two did as did not like the powders I used - really need to cull some ugly ones. Why do they make and sell ugly embossing powders? LOVED the gold embossed image on black card though. Also there are some NBUS stamps, am going to leave out in hope (?) that will use them! Especially Christmas ones, I need to get cracking! On right is a 3D rose set as have to make an 80th birthday card for a friend who also is rose lover. So plan is to use one of these.|
|One more of the 12 cards made for friend's family .. see others here and here, or just scroll down. This one is die cut .. border is a Nellie Snellen, the flower and vase is from Olivia Cuttlebug alphabet die set. Marbled gloss photo paper is made like this technique here. |
Except this time did not brayer but just "splotted' it over gloss card/ or photo paper, which was first moistened with alcohol blending solution. Used alcohol inks, and some dye inks. Its very "try and see what works" style :D but need to move quicker with alcohol inks.
