Whats on Your Workdesk? Wednesday #231

Good morning WOYWW's. Its been a busy week here at crafty towers. I'm frantically making cards for an upcoming craft fair, so many ideas, so little time... I use the term "frantically" a bit loosely as it takes a while for me to make just one card, and regular followers know that if I don't like what I've made it goes in the bin! After all... its only a bit of card...

Anyway, for this weeks desk you can see lots of coloured card ready for making my moms birthday card, all the coloured bits are made using distress inks and water. I like to do this so everything matches but has subtle gradients of colour.

The plastic box in the top right has all my backgrounds in ready to make into cards. After using my meltpot, acetate, embossing powders and stamps I produced this:

The black and white embossing is actually on two separate layers of acetate so it has a bit of a 3D look about it. Here is a close up of the flowers

Short and sweet this week as everything is so "frantic". I'm off to Julias blog now to check out all the other desks.

Have a great week, I will as I'm off to the Hobbycraft show at the NEC on Saturday with one of my crafty sisters.
