Woodware - White ....

I had so many plans this weekend but as usual here I am on Sunday night wondering why do weekends always fly by!! I am first up this week for the Woodware DT and our theme is white!! I thought this will be easy, but actually it's not. Also this week I had a lot of birthday cards to make so I kind of left this challenge to the last minute. So apologies for a rather quick and simple effort this week.
For me white cards imply either bridal or sympathy. So rather predictably I went for sympathy. 

The other problem I found with white is that it is difficult to photograph and make look good. Basically I used a script stamp on to parchment paper or vellum stamped with Cotton White Staz-On.
Then I stencil embossed the iris and the sympathy onto white linen card. Both are Dreamweaver stencils.  

Not my best effort I have to say. But hopefully the other girls will provide some better inspiration for the rest of the week.
I was asked at short notice to make a couple of large cards for 60th birthday's at work this week. I very rarely make such big cards so that was a little challenging. The female one was to be in lilacs and lavender and have butterflies. So this is what I came up with. 

Since I took the photo I have changed the butterfly on the postcard for a paler one stamped on vellum and cut out which looks better than this dark one. I had to join the two sheets of A4 together with a folded piece of paper at the top but it seems to have worked. The card I made for a male colleague was with a golfing theme but I forgot to take a picture of it before handing it over!!
Hope you all have a good week.

  4. You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I
    to find this topic to be really something
    that I believe I might by no means understand.
    It seems too complicated and very large for me.
    I am looking ahead in your subsequent publish, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!
