WOYWW No. 148.

Greetings to all who venture around the desks of we who like to play with Julia Dunnit over at Stamping Ground. We do this desk hopping thing and share our art spaces as well as our art. Follow the link to see what goes on.

This week I decided to create something with the Tropical Blooms stamp I bought at the Paperific show.

The desk, the stamping project, and the accoutrements. 
The tropical blossoms are stamped and embossed with Judikins black fine detail. I masked the flowers and leaves (see just above the yellow paint brush) and stamped the wood grain background. The flowers are painted with Twinkling H2O and then some light background applied - Distress antique paper.


The assembled card includes pale yellow and gold metallic matts and a bow tied with the bow maker I mentioned a little while ago. Here's the finished product.



To those who celebrate Easter, enjoy this Eastertide, and have a great week to all. See you around the traps over the next couple of days.
Smiles,
Ros.

The wood grain background with the flowers is fabulous. That bow maker did an excellent job. I saw a bow maker demonstration at a workshop and my brain just didn't register what was going on. That night I dreamed all about it and figured it out! So now whenever I want a bow tied, I guess I need to take a nap!

I've got a lot of catching up to do...but loved visiting your work desk.
The card is really beautiful. I like the wood effect but have to confess when I first saw the brown blocks; I actually thought you were having a chocolate fix...a BIG chocolate fix. Maybe I'm hallucinating now...must get a chunk out of the fridge to keep me going ;)
Enjoy the long weekend and hopefully this fantastic weather might last throughout! Neesie #32

As sson as I saw the H20s I knew we were in for a treat! Lovely card, indeedy.You do seem to know where you're going with these things before you sit and calmly do it. At least that's what your desk suggests to me!

That's a really pretty card, Ros. I love the woodgrain background which really sets off the flowers.

Thanks for your nikce comment on my blog. If you want to see my hand-made paper in more detail, the previous post to my WOYWW one gives full details, and a bigger picture of it.

Happy belated WOYWW,

That is a really lovely card, very stylish and elegant. Thank you for your visit this week, and your good wishes for Flash. I have given up changing nibs after finding a source for them on EBay at a very reasonable price. Have a good Easter. xx Maggie #9

Sam said...

This is gorgeous Honey. Love that wood effect with those flowers.
As for TH chemistry class it is not too late. The only downside of joining late is that the forum and gallery wont stay open but the lessons are available for life after the event. Go on. Join in. You know you want to!! TH gives lots of useful tips that I have not seen on other videos or in books!
Happy Easter!
xx

Neet said...

Your H2o pots, look lovely - aren't they beautiful colours? I love mine. Nice to see your desk looking busy and what a lovely background you have done on your floral cards - so different.
Thanks for the tip about the magnesium dh looking it up now to get some.
Sorry I am so late, things got in the way. Thanks for sharing, stopping by me and putting your number (so appreciated.) Happy Easter - Hugs, Neet #10 xx
