Idle hands

A work project has stalled — the client doesn’t have all the materials together — so I found myself with a day on my hands. A rare treat! I was itching to use some new stamps I acquired recently and work up some pieces for an upcoming publication challenge. Here’s the first piece:

Browns, blacks and dusty pinks give this an old world feel.

Browns, blacks and dusty pinks give this an old world feel. I was trying for a tintype look -- I think the Kraft paper with pearl white Lumiere paint worked!

My camera — or camera skill — is lacking. Or maybe it was that fact that fat-cat Max and I were fighting for the same patch of afternoon sunlight in which to snap this shot. The next picture shows more of the iridescence in the piece: Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Tattered Rose) on the tag; the fine glitter on the green/brown brad; the pearlescent white Lumiere paint in the background of the main image. It’s definitely a card that changes colors/sheens when held at different angles.

On a tilt the card catches the light. Love that!

Here’s Max wondering why I stole his sun …

Oh, the indignity of living with humans!
