Happy WOYWW Everyone! That is short for “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday”, the brilliant blog hop initiated by our lovely hostess, Julia at The Stamping Ground….and you can see all the deets there.
What a difference a week makes….last week I showed a desk of mass destruction and disappointment. This week…the detritus is cleared, and perseverance has won out.
What am I going on about? The Sizzix Pop and Cut Butterfly insert die. And while I haven’t received my Sizzix shipment yet with the backing die, I did make do...using...get ready…a piece of my Gelli Plate prints (yup, I can hear you gasp from here!)
So, you see the finished card. The White drawer goes in the cabinet that hangs on the wall, and is holding my Dylusions Ink Sprays. Sitting on the ink pads are some additional butterflies I cut out, but thought were too bright. To the right are the stencils I used. Now, as this was a test to see if I could get it to work, I really wasn’t thinking about the actual coloring. I’ve decided, that while I like the butterfly wings to be veined (I used a very large Stamp Camp butterfly stamp, and just inked the tips of the wings to fit on the cut one) I think black was too much, and will use a softer brown next time.
Oh, and here is the finished card…in all its flipping glory!! Not that the photos are great...but you get the idea...
So, there it is…now go stop by Julia’s and hop around the world to other great desks! Happy Crafting everyone.
