WOYWW #259

Good morning WOYWWers, hope you are all well. A busy week this week, but I did manage to get a bit of crafting in. I've had a new delivery of stamps, so thought I'd have a bit of a play, this is what my desk looked like "mid session"

Some of you may recognise Sheena's new "Taste of India" stamps, fab designs, love them. With the new stamps I also received my new rock-a-blocks, jury's still out on those though, I'll let you know how I'm getting on with those next time. The background is made using distress inks, I tried the technique of adding a coating on glycerin to the card before applying the ink - all I can say is WOW! It makes such a difference, the ink goes on so smoothly and the colour is really vibrant!

The finished card looks like this:

I highlighted a few areas by taking the colour back off the card with water and added a few extra highlights with a white pen, the splodges are just water to take the colour off.

Hope you like it. Off to explore the other desks over on Julia's blog

Have a good week

WOYWW #258

Ooops, missed last weeks WOYWW, these Bank Holiday Mondays really mess my week up, and the week at work doesn't seem to go any quicker either, even though its a day shorter, not that I'm complaining about the long weekends....

For this weeks WOYWW I thought I'd have a long shot of my desk, there is nothing "in production" this week but after watching Sheena Douglas again this week on Create and Craft and buying yet another set of her stamps, I realised that I still have some that I haven't used, so I have got them out ready to use, and had intended to have a play tonight (writing this on Tuesday night) but it was such a lovely evening I had a nice walk around the village with Jess and stopped off for for a quick drink at my local, so nothing has got done.
The white folders are full of Sheena stamps, and I have to confess there are some I haven't used in there as well, but they are Christmas stamps, so I'm sure its OK, some many stamps, so little time....

The latest stamps that I want to use are these:

I have used some of the sea horse stamps, but the rest are awaiting to be cut out, as for the others I have invested in some rock-a-blocks, so when they arrive (with even more stamps) I will cut them all out, hopefully this will be quicker and easier that mounting them all on EZ mount.

So for this week, as there is nothing in progress on my desk, here are a couple of finished projects from the last couple of weeks:

Thanks for looking, off to look at everyone else's desk over on Julia's blog.

Bye for now
