WOYWW#196

Somewhere in last week I was supposed to post a product review and I am still planning on doing that, the review is on glazing products so stay tuned for that!  In the mean time it is WOYWW#196!  YOU can continue on this world wide desk hop by going here: http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ !
 
I have been doing a great deal of running around in the last week and have not spent as much time as I would have liked to at my work desk.  I have a large batch of cards to go to the local shops I sell to and need to get more done.  On my work desk today is a batch in the works for that and a challenge card the inspired the batch cards.
 

 

These cards will eventually be "Happy Birthday"  cards I have a lovely Chinese Kanji stamp for this that I will use;  
 
 
A close up of the Koi, I used stickles for a little texture, not too much shine, just enough
 
 
This is the finished card for the OSA challenge:
 
 
The technique is called shadow stamping .
 
I plan on my birthday batch to be in the portrait perspective and not the landscape as the challenge card is.
I'm adding this, I just made a dozen of these....

 
 
And because I can't stop playing with the butterflies , this is my card for the OSA swap Black plus one color (blue)
 
these are all in the A6 size on 100# papers.
 
Getting an early start to my day.  Days which seem to be getting shorter all the time.
I woke up this morning with the quote from psalms in my thinking:
Unto thee oh Lord do I lift up my soul.  In this crazy world we are living in I so appreciate that as St. James said in his epistle: In him there is no shadow, no varibleness of turning.  In other words, He is the solid unchanging rock!
I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!
