On left of 1st desk is box to be recovered with the calligraphic gift wrapping paper for the bride's set of gift cards, I've made. Covered already, added two strips of gold washi, it looks great.
Time for WOYWW for Workdesk Wednesday over at Julia's place! To my work in various stages of progress! Extra bonus is watching the Winter Olympics while crafting. Aussies have won two medals, silver and bronze! Great work considering not much snow here.. I’ve a spate of birthdays this month that’s why I’m really glad we’re not big on Valentine’s Day here. I’m trying to make a male card, should’ve taken a half made image from stash as have them but wanted something different!! This Penny Black Stamp was in my Christmas pressie, a NBUS!
On Monday I posted a card similar to this see HERE!
Also today is Mrs A’sButterfly #95 challenge - spin wheel with letter P. (She has revamped this year with heaps more options).
This fortnight is P is for Purple + pearls (or pink, peach, paper piecing, and paptterned paper.. lots of P options there!). As I decided to make a mauve/purple /gold version for my friend who loves purples, pearls, butterflies and gold.. here ‘tis. For those who didn’t see the Monday post take a peek, as do love this technique for getting coloured embossed stamped greeting with clear embossing powder. Used technique on this too. This card isn't exactly the same as different butterfly die (SB)..
So a very special card... her favourite flower is lily of the valley, and colour is soft green. As said last week, the Lily of valley are SB die but I bought Die cuts on eBay and coloured them. Then used two Heart EF on background, both CB but discontinued, Love set and Kimmy Luvs is other, corners are a Marianne die.
This view from Oz this week was taken on our icecream drive this week. I don’t swim at this spot it’s too dangerous, bad rips and currents, however lots of surfers do there were some this day..
