WOYWW #114



First on my desk this week is another map card.The maps are from a set available from Stamp & Go.com, SIFS65,which features 6 maps, some waves, a couple of ships, and a ship in a bottle. It was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto an alcohol ink background then cut into a mosaic and matted onto black card. The two tags use a stamp from Artifacts, The Stamp Bugs own stamps, Spirit of Adventure Collage. Just went to their site to get the link, and their u.m stamps are on sale at the moment, with 25% off! The Time & Tide stamp is by Paper Artsy, Clocks plate 3, which also features some of the stamps in the third picture I have posted. I sponged old Paper, Antique Linen & Walnut stain Distress inks onto some script background paper and both tags.



  The second card is again using alcohol ink backgrounds, and the Crafty Individuals stamp from a couple of posts ago. The square card base was covered in paper from Dovecrafts Aquamarine Floral Prints paper pack.









Here are some of the clock images from the Paper Artsy plate, stamped onto Distress inked card, cut out then the 'glass' created with Glossy Accents. The card was coloured by swiping Distress inks onto a craft mat (mine came from Poundland, a baking sheet) spritzing with water then wiping the card/tag across the ink. Here is a link to Tim Holtz showing how he does it. The clock hands have been cut out using the Silhouette, using a 'dingbat' font that features clocks & timepieces.Have a great Wednesday, and if you are new to this idea, visit the Amazing Julia Dunnits Stamping Ground and join the fun.

Wow! You've got a lot of great stuff going on at your desk. I really like the different background techniques you've used...I've never tried alcohol ink (and I don't NEED another product to have to buy LOL) - but I know I want to try the craftmat technique on your clocks - they're gorgeous.Andrea

Hi there Shaz me back again :D I take it you are very busy and no WOYWW this week, sensible you.
Just wanted to say if you happen to go to Jozarty's blog and see a card topper on the last pickie on her post that looks like your work, I apologise - was looking for something to send her to go with my thank you card and best had to hand was the card topper like your Aspire triptych. Did write your credit clearly on the back but she did not mention you so very sorry, she may not have even turned it over! God's blessing on your day, Shaz.xx
