Woodware Challenge Week 84 – Sketch 19 – Day 5

We have a very simple sketch this month and here is my very simple take on it…

dorrieI have cheated and used on of Francoise’s new word stamps. They will be in the shops very soon, but I don’t have a date at the moment, but I will share as soon as I can.

dorrie6It makes a wonderful centre piece to a card when you have something important to say.

dorrie1I am very pleased with my bow, the 40mm Cream Organza has shrivelled rather well with my heat tool, I have topped it with a button from the Coffee and Cream Assortment to top it off.

dorrie2 In order to follow the sketch I used Frantage embossing powder in Aged Green on two sides and Aged Copper on the other two. On the layer in the centre I reversed the colouring so that the green sits on top of the copper.


I hope that you can see the difference in the photograph. The stamp is the border from the Jumbo Hollyhock set. The paper is from Magenta and is called Autumn Leaves.  I have mounted it on A4 Craft Card that I have folded and then cut to make a square card.

Over on my blog I have some pictures showing how I got the mitred corners on the embossing powders, so pop over if you want to see how I have done them.

thank you for visiting today see you soon!

  1. I love the colouring and soft vintage feel of your card Dorothy, also the very clever mitred corners! Looking forward to seeing the new stamps and stocking them in our shop. Thanks for the sneak peak. I really like this sentiment one!
