Good Morning Peeps!
Wednesday already and only Day 2 in work. Boy I could quite get used to these 4 day weeks!
So what is so special about Wednesday I hear you cry? Well it is known as several things - Hump Day, Half way through the week day, Nearly Friday day, but in the crafting world it is known as WOYWW Day. For those of us (silly enough to) who take part, we all take a photo of our desks, warts and mess and all, and link them up to the lovely Julia and we blog hop around the world looking at other peoples' desks, floors, laps, dining room tables and having desk envy or drawer envy or stamp envy or anything else envy!!
Here is mine this week.......
For those of you who have been to my desk previously, you will note that it is pretty much tidier than it has been for a fair while. No big piles of paper in the top left corner, that cup of herbal tea is actually still warm and the inks are out because I have just finished a card for my lovely dancing teacher Johan (aka Obi Wan!) on Thursday.
Here is a closer look at the card.....
I used Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Fired Brick DIs and a Paperartsy stamp. It is a little bit out of my normal comfort zone and I like it! A lot!! I did try making a second one but I managed to bodge it! Oh Dear! I think was the exclamation.....not!!
If you are wondering what that sheet of orange stuff is on top of the Cadburys tins is, it is felt. I was trying to get a good crisp stamp image and tried the glass mat, then the funky foam and then felt. I got the best result on the felt.
I remember seeing something like this in Craft Stamper but this is the first time I have tried it. One layer!! Phewf! I need a lie down now. As the lovely Hels' theme is "Anything Goes" I shall enter it for her Sunday Stamper Challenge too!
Well, don't forget to leave me a message to let me know what you think of what I am doing. It gives me a good excuse to come and nosey at your desk too!! And don't forget to call by the lovely Julia's blog too!!
P.S. The Cadbury's Finger tins are very old and I inherited them. I DID NOT eat all those fingers!! Honest. And what do I use them for? They are PERFICK for holding DI ink pads in!
