I know everyone thinks these Wednesday's come around every day, this week is no exception. Where did the other days go? The wonderful leader of woyww, Julia, may just have the answer I wonder.
I tried to get around all the desks last week but failed miserably. Will have to try harder this week, even if that's how long it takes. It's great having a peek at what everyone is up to, how they organise their craft or what goodies they have just acquired. I like it in the winter when folk leave their curtains open and their light on!! Oh! shouldn't have said that should I? just so you can see inside.
Anyway, apart from growing a new chin this week, I have a skin infection which has made my chin twice the size, red, sore and flaking! I've managed to make a few ATCs. Firstly though, here's that faux porcelain flower from last week.
I made the mistake of assembling the flower then trying to UTEE it. Wrong. I couldn't get the utee on most of it so ended up trying to pour it on. the flower was covered in bubbles and 'strings' of the stuff. Not to be beaten, I waited for it to dry then splodged loads of distress stickles over the horrid bits. It's not too bad now.
Today's desk looks like a bomb has dropped. I took my photos yesterday, not knowing what the light was going to be like today.
You may just notice my lovely Wendy Vecchi stamps. No idea where they came from!!!!!! The lovely postie just left them the other day.
I have played to my heart's content with these stamps taking some inspiration from the amazing sample sheet which came with them.
Sorry about the picture quality on this heart ATC. Sometimes my camera takes amazing photos and sometimes it's 'pants'. This is a full blown 'knicker' photo. The top card was inspired by the samples but the heart one is all mine. I used Tim's 'postage on the edge die' for the mount board just to give some shape for a change to the usual oblong. Worked well me thinks.
This was fun but not for the little bird. He is the grungeboard bird I cut out last week together with the cage, again using Tim's dies. However, I cut his little legs off to make this card. He didn't notice, honest.
Another rubbish pic., but you get the idea. All the cards have been made using distressing over papers or stamped images, grungepaper which has been die cut or stamped and then cut out, over stamped and distressed. My little stash of cards for swapping is growing now ready for the 18 Sept. and the workshop with Lindsay, when several of us gather together for a day of fun.
Enjoy your Wednesday. I'm off to rush around a few work desks for a good 'ol nosey, I mean peek. xx
