Now it's a guitar...

A couple of Wednesdays ago, I had a rusty hinge on my workdesk which I'd made using the "drunken scotch" technique (check back for the link to the "how to") and I have been at a loss to use it ever since...

For a while, I've been thinking... it looks like a guitar if you stand it upright (no?  oh, only me then....) and all it needed was something musical to attach it to. So tonight, during the football (AND it's Liverpool, I should be WATCHING...) I have dashed off this quick tag.  Bet you can't guess what colour I've used.... oh, you guessed - wild honey ...lol...
I did use some aged mahogany too. The stamp is by (goes to drawer to check...) Wordsworth - and I love it. I deliberately stamped (and scanned...) it slightly crooked,to match the "waves" between the words.  If you believe that, you'll believe anything.

Added some sponging through some sequin waste in the same inks and some matching ribbon, and it's done.

I have been working on something else for a couple of days, too, but I can't show you until Saturday.

As a side note, I would just like to say thanks to all the lovely peeps who came looking at my workspace this Wednesday - I had a record number of comments made, and each and every one made me smile.  I wish you could all come rummage in my drawers too!!!!

Now, off to watch the second half of the football properly, and I've just made another cup of tea which I am determined to drink before it gets cold - see you soon!

Now that you mention it, Yes, I can see a guitar there! How positively creative of you! I never would have come up with that! Your posts crack me up. And I would have believed the scan thing, if you wouldn't have mentioned it, lol. Your tag is great, and nice to see you really can use some other ink! he he
