Whats on Your Workdesk? Wednesday? #232

Good morning, I can't believe its been another week already. I've had a busy week, a trip to the Hobbycraft show at the NEC at the weekend, setting up for the pop up shop that I'm selling cards at on Thursday, and in between making cards. Here is my desk for today:

This is an inky background in progress, they start off with some splodges (technical term!) of distress inks for a bit of background colour. I then add twinkling H2Os using an old bit of sponge (you can see it at the top of the photo), once dry the background looks like this:

Now I usually get around to making a card but unfortunately I haven't with this bit yet. On my other desk are a load more "bits" ready to me made into cards:

These have been made using my new stencils I bought from the NEC. I'll make them into complete cards ready for next time.

But just for those of you who like to see completed cards....

Oh, I forgot to say my card I made for last weeks WOYWW was shown on Create and Craft on Sunday on Hels Sheridans show! and I won the draw! not sure what I've won though, we'll see what arrives.

That's all for now. Off for a look around all the other desks on Julias blog.

Bye for now
