Morning WOYWWer's ! It's that time again so hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in! Above is what's on the left side of my bench...We had this trip into town and my goodness! There was 'The Works' and before I knew what happened my basket was full! They haven't had 12x12 papers in for ages, plus some 6x6 papers too! I love the Christmas one. Then, I trundled further down the high street and into a Charity shop, where I picked up an A5 40 paged display book for 99p. Bargain.
In the 'Gnome Corner' you'll see, at last!! that the bigger card is virtualy finished, just have to do the inside so that there's 7 gnomes all together, (6 on the front and 1 inside) One of the gnomes moves without falling or committing Harakiri! The smaller card is the one I practiced on waaaaay back, used magnets, (that smashed) but there wasn't enough room to be able to manage the magnet on a stick, so the gnome just somersaulted anywhere he wanted, got tangled in the undergrowth, lost his arm and then fell down. The bottom of the smaller card is tent style so I couldn't come up from the bottom and rescue him! (I gave up on giving them arms!) I've added a bit more 'grass' at the bottom of the larger card to hide the mechanism. (Seen in packet)
Here's the middle working bit of my bench. There's some squished loo rolls, which I've already run through my BigShot and squirted with water and added Glycein.
Next comes the fun bit, embossing and inking. (That takes ages!) Go HERE to watch the video where I got the inspiration to make a 'SteamPunk' booklet. I'm going to use different embossing folders and some Tim Holts inks later. That's it! I'm off now to feed a cat and later will have a little four legged friend come visit! So, Join in at WOYWW! Bye for now!
