WOYWW 206

Warm welcome wishes to Ria and Darnell, thanks for joining my crafty escapades!!!

It's that time again - WOYWW - so go and check out Julia's blog and see why we are all loving snooping on other people's craft rooms/desks or in my case trays on my bed!

As you can see by the tray above, I've been working on a few things at once.  I might be making one card, but whilst doing it I also cut out more die cuts or colourise (otherwise known as colouring in!) images.  It makes it easier down the line to put together my charity cards.


On a previous WOYWW posting, I told you I'd used some packaging to make into cards.  Here's the embossed images of two parts I've used.  Although they use the same image, the different colouring and the distressing make them look totally different.

I'll be posting the finished card soon so you can see the difference in the final cards.  I like to use every part of my crafting stash as you can tell!

Enjoy!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I am a big fan of recycling, and your card assemblies are incredible. I make art in stages, too, although I don't make cards. I leave that to the "pros."

BTW, Bleubeard loves your cat. Such a beauty.

You asked about my microwave in my basement studio. It's really for low immersion fabric dyeing, but it would heat my coffee in a pinch (grin). Thanks for asking.

Happy WOYWW from #10.
