Happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday and the first full day of autumn! (Or happy spring to  my friends in the southern hemisphere.) 🙂

Today’s workdesk shows quite the array of supplies needed for Tim Holtz’s September  tag.

I was happy to try my new Bird Feather  stamp set, as I didn’t have it when he used it on his tag back in March.

Not sure that I’m thrilled with that egg floating in mid air, although I do like the effect of the solid stamp plus the speckles stamp.

The technique of using Alcohol Blending Solution with the Burlap Stencil to create a ghosted image is cool, although mine didn’t work out the way he said. I had to go back in with the blending solution over the stencil after adding Butterscotch alcohol ink to the card.

The leaves were colored with all different alcohol inks, including a bit of Gold Mixative, and then cut from the Autumn Gatherings Sizzix Sizzlits Die.

The colors in this card are kind of schizophrenic, as it doesn’t know whether it wants to be spring or fall. Which is, I suppose, true to how I was feeling while I worked on it. 🙂

So now I’ve shown you mine, show us yours. We have lots of fun peeking at creative desks from all over the world at the blog link party at Julia’s

Happy creating!

  4. It’s lovely, Sandie. I like those colours all together – am fascinated about the floating egg, though…
    Take care. God bless.

  5. I agree with you about the egg, but the rest of the piece is lovely. The colours are gorgeous. Have a great week, Chris # 14

  6. Yes, you are right, a floating egg is quite something. The birdie seems to chase it! Very lovely card with all those leaves!

  7. I’ve never tried alcohol inks before, but it’s on my list! Your project looks lovely! I like your “schizophrenic” colour choice! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #22

  8. Oh, yes, I love the leaves. I may try that on something. At first I was worried that the egg was about to go all Humpty Dumpty, but it’s got a nice pile to land on, so that’s all good. 😀

    • Ah, you make a good point. Now that I look at it that way, it does seem like the egg is ready to drop right into that pile of leaves.

      Why? I have no idea. But there you have it.

  9. Love your card and the way you used the alcohol inks. I’m starting to use mine again for different projects along the way. Have a great rest of the week!

  11. Like the idea of the ghosted look with the alcohol inks – super card. Thanks for sharing. Hope you are having a great day and have a lovely crafting week to come. Hazel, WOYWW #69 x

    • Yeah, the ghosted look is pretty cool. I’m not sure why mine didn’t work out the way he said, but it worked out in the end. 🙂

  12. Great card. I love the tag theme this month and your take on it is great.
    Happy crafting, Angela x 36

  14. I really, really like the colours of those leaves at the bottom of your tag… and I do LOVE the ‘schizofrenic’ feeling of Spring/Autumn… great tag!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog today, happy woyww and hug from Holland, Marit #47

  15. Hey Sandy, love that speckled egg, even if it is in mid-air – Tim always comes up with great techniques to try, even if you dont’ have all the stuff he’s used. Your tag looks gorgeous, great combination of colours. Happy WOYWW on Thursday – it’s taken me a while t catch up :o) Annie C #37
