WOYWW - first time!

I must thank my sister-in-law Pat for putting me onto this group.  Seems like a great way to share snapshots of what people are up to in an informal way.
So here is my first contribution to What's On Your Workbench Wednesday.  The canvas is from my post yesterday - the first time I've had a go on anything but card or MDF.  When I took the photo I was in the middle of designing a card for a birthday do on Friday that my husband and I have been invited to.  You can see where I've been trying out different gold embossing powders and techniques - heat from above; heat from below.  I am also incredibly lucky that a good crafty friend has joined me in my craft shed for the last couple of days.  She has been working on the zentangle and kindly allowed me to share what she has been up to.

The finished card!

I used a mixture of stamped images and Kanban topper/guitar fret sticker.  I had to trim the topper and mat it onto gold as it originally had a silver mirri edge which didn't match.  The stamped sentiment and guitar came from the Inkadinkado Rock Star stamp set and the background is from the Indigoblu Dinkies 'Notes' set stamped in Versamark and dusted with Perfect Pearls.  I ended up using Heat-it-up gold embossing powder and heating from below for the guitar!
