Masculine Congratulations

Hello friends!  Some of you might know that I am in love with everything nautical/ocean related.  I immediately fell in love with this ALLandcreate stamp.

How’s your weekend going?  I had Saturday off and picked up Sunday in overtime at work.  On Saturday I went to my first “art in the park” since Covid shut everything down.  Everyone seemed to be in great spirits walking along looking at all the beautiful hand-crafted items.  I purchased a beautiful mixed-media necklace which you can see here.  What particularly attracted me to this artist’s Summer Sorbet Treasure Pendant was the mixed media.  What appears to be coloured stone is actually pieces of wood carefully painted to resemble stone.  This treasure will be worn alot, along with coordinating earrings.

My Son-in-law recently had a promotion and I wanted to send him a congratulations card.

My card uses, once again, Tina Zinck’s vellum background technique.  Once the background was good and dry (it doesn’t take long), I turned the vellum over and heat embossed gold over top.  Next, I finished my card off with making a pendent that says “Congratulations.”

Have a fantastic week!

Glad you are out and having fun. Pretty necklace and gorgeous card. I’d been wondering what happened to you, been a while since you’ve commented but then I saw you did comment elsewhere, so just wanted to let you know I mailed your birthday card on Wednesday, hopefully it reaches you and in time. Have a lovely weekend, xo

Oh my that is a great background for your great lighthouse, love it embossed in gold. Congrats to your son in law!
Wow that is an amazing pendant, she did a beautiful job with making it look like stone. I have never worn something so big, all my stuff is quite dainty. Glad you had a great time walking around and shopping!
