WOYWW #213

Happy Wednesday Peeps and welcome to WOYWW #213.
I have been making Sympathy cards and using a cutting file for the wings. My card has a lilac backing (this colour is the one used in Greece for a death, so we never put it on cards, presents etc otherwise). I have embossed the backing card using 'Timeless' embossing folder from the Romantique Collection by Couture Creations.
After cutting the two pairs of wings, I hand embossed them with small dots and attached them with silicone and added a small lilac rose. The base card is cream.





Looky in the background too.... a fabbo packet of Pencils I picked up yesterday for just 51 cents... cool bargain eh ?!!!  Fantastic for scribbling stuff down like I'm always doing.... and if Hubs steals one for his workshop... as he always does too !!!!


Now, is you don't know what WOYWW ... What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday .....is all about then pop over to Julia's Blog at THE STAMPING GROUND and find out all about it :-)
Thank you for visiting and have a great day :-D

** Sorry - I always forget to put what products I used.
I have been asked about the Wings. They are a GSD cutting file that is part of a Swan Wedding card by Tina Fitch and can be found on the CAMEO CREATIONS CD available from Forever Memories For You HERE

It's interesting who different colours have certain meaning in different counties

Julia Dunnit said...

Fab card, and intersting about how different cultures use different colours..we do use a deep 'royal' purple in church, I quite like the lilac for sympathy, it's gentle.

Karen said...

Beautiful elegant card, just right for a sad occasion we all have to deal with in life. Where did you get the cutting file, it looks gorgeous! Happy WOYWW! ♥ Karen ♥ 84 x

Well we never knew that about lilac but oddly enough it's the colour we normally choose for sympathy cards. Your card is beautiful too.

Hugs from the bears @#93 this week.

You do learn so much on WOYWW! I use lilacy-purples a lot on cards... oops! Thanks for the birthday wishes. I tried to get here earlier but my pc had a wobbly and I had to go away and leave it alone for a bit!! Helen, 7

What a lovely card, perfect for its purpose. I doubt I would have ever known about this Greek tradition, It's amazing how diverse the info is, that you learn about while desk hopping.Thank you for visiting me today

Didn't know you popped in to woyww Ike! Interesting to read about Greece and the colour lilac, it's usually such a cheerful, springy colour too! Very pretty cards though, love the angel wings.

Very interestng to know that Lilac is linked to death in Greece. ALWAYS wanted to go to Greece, I'll make sure NOT to wear Lila if I ever get there.

Very interesting post about the different colours in different cultures and thanks for sharing that. Something I didn't know.

Thanks for dropping by and leaving lovely comments about the canvas project, I have so many comments on that piece I am quite surprised actally becuase it's not finished. i must be doing something right though! I will post the finished piece on my blog and link up the post so you can see the details of how it was all done.

Thanks for dropping by and apologies for the late visit.

Love those wings and I learned soemthing new, had no idea that the lilac shade was reserved for mourning, its those little things that could lead to a catastrophe if you weren't careful. Annette #6

Thank you for visiting my desk in South Africa! I love the wings you have cut and how you have used them. I did not know about the colour purple being for death, I have a few

Wow this is just beautiful and I just learned something. Lilac is the colour of mourning in Greece? Interesting how different cultures interpret colour.
