Snowing again and WOYWW# 198

 Snowing again!
Other than a little snow in March the good news is it is time to see what's happening on desk tops across the world!  You can continue the fun by going over to the UK and  Julia's blog here:

Today on my desk is a swap finish for Oriental Stamp Arts (    This was for  the Horse Mingle:

I used a magenta stamp for this image, heat embossed with black ink and black powder on a 90# parchment card stock.  I then painted it with H2o's.  The turquoise is a bold brush recollections marker that I also used to turn the background white of the ribbon into  turquoise. I layered the card on black then gold.   The card base is a 90# faux leather black card stock.

The card image is about 4.75x 5.75 I cut the base to be 10x6 and brought the two long edges together to form a pocket. I used a round punch to make "tabs"  I'll show you a more obvious color:


 To close the "seam"  I used a lot of ATG tap on the ribbon and put it over the meeting edges, ran it around to the other side.  This also keeps the interior card from falling out.
I used another piece of the parchment for the interior card and attached a piece of ribbon to pull it out. 
The last step was to affix the image stamp over the top.  This pocket card was easy and it was  fun to make.  Something a little different with out taking an hour to do!
Lastly on my work desk is a new addition!  I found another ink pad holder at the goodwill store!  This one (the one on the top) was in new condition, it has the napa valley brand mark on it's side and was only 5.00!!!

These sell for around 50.00 on the Internet!  It holds 105 ink pads!  If I change my stamp room colors (I've got the itch to do it lately) I can spray paint these easily!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the WOYWW blog hop!

Hi Ginny, I have a foam board rack hubby made me for my SU! pads and a chest of 3 drawers, one for pigment inks (rarely use), one for specailty inks, and one for random dye inks and rainbow pads. I did a major weed out of the pads I never use and gave them to the kids with the casette holder:)
