Edit: Thank you so much to everyone who gave me html advice. As you can see, it's worked.
Greetings fellow WOYWWers. It's hot one day and cool the next around here but I won't complain since I'm relieved to have some respite from the heat. People inland are not having such luck. Our lovely island State of Tasmania has been alight this week and so are our neighbours in New South Wales. Thinking of you all.
The business of this post is about desks - what's on mine, what's on yours if you've connected with the team at Julia's Stamping Ground.
Today - this week really, has been a design week with lots of trial and error. I have been wanting to try some Kraft card that I bought at Picture to Page late last year. Every sort of ink behaved differently from its usual fashion. Here's the desk...
You can see.... at long last, thanks to the advice of many friends of WOYWW the card in the centre surrounded with various inks, tools and stamps used in the card.
And here's the final result. I'm not sure that it's the most final outcome, as I can see many more iterations to experiment with, but it will do for a start. I used the Mica stamp pad for one fern leaf and Marvy for the other leaf in a stronger green. The dragonfly is stamped in Encore silver and embossed with Liquid Platinum. I used a die for the greeting label and attached with jute string. The card for the panel comes from a series of colours called Outback. They all have a mottled look. The little die-cut dragonfly is cut twice to select two different colours for the wings. The card stock is an acid free chip board which is quite heavy, probably more than 300gsm. I stamped twigs and ferns off the card.
News is that I'm off to the Daylesford Singers Festival this weekend which will be great fun. My choir is in the Saturday night concert, and there will be lots of workshop to attend. More on that early next week.
Feeling very prickly with this post, dear desk-hoppers. Please bear with me.
Ros with hugs.
