Woodware - Only Words

Well I am last up this week at Woodware this week. Our theme is "Only Words" I have always loved word stamps and have quite a collection. The one I have chosen for this week's card is an old Stampendous stamp which is now available as a cling.

I have used several text stamps for the various elements. My flower was made up with about 6 layers, each of which was stamped with a script stamp. If you have never tried one of these then this is how I make them:

  • Punch out or die cut at least six flowers in an appropriate size
  • Put all the layers together, trying to offset the petals in each layer.
  • Fasten with a brad.
  • Working one layer at a time, spritz with water and gently scrunch up the petals.
  • After the last layer you should have a scrunched up ball.
  • Allow to dry.
  • Gently unfold the petals from the outside in.
  • Optional - spritz with a mica spray for a little glimmer.

I keep meaning to make a pile of these on a lap tray watching telly so that I have a ready made stash!! Best laid plans .....
This has been an interesting week. I was cited to attend for jury service at the beginning of the week. Never expecting to be selected I went along and found myself coming out of the ballot. So I have been at high court this week in Perth as a juror !! We have to go back on Monday, hopefully for the last day. It has certainly been an interesting, if not enjoyable experience. But I will be quite glad now for it to be over!! 
Hope you have an enjoyable weekend.
