WOYWW #211

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday time again. Run by the leader of the desk hop, Julia, this has become a world wide weekly nosey into all things craft. Show us yours and we'll show you ours - seems a good motto. so here is mine:
I was making my DT ATC for the end of July challenge which involved dies and my Big Shot. The colour wheel is a craft need for me not being an artist or anything similar, I rely on all sorts of things and clever folk to guide me through the process of making something decent to look at. Anyway, after I had cut my base card I had to colour it so decided to use Distress ink, stain and paint. The result was ok but I had lots of it left on my craft sheet so mopped it up with a piece of mount board:

That made a lovely background which will come in useful in the future.
Enjoy your day and see you all next week, hopefully.

Happy WOYWW. Your workspace looks like a good place to play - and I love your blog design. Followed the link to the Book of Ruination - as I love that style - too 'inky/messy' for me (I mainly craft digitally now), but looks fabulous. Ali x #79

you have a lovely workspace I need to get a colour wheel as I am no artist and sometimes get it very wrong.
Love the colours of the ink you mopped up
have a great WOYWW and enjoy the rest of your week

OOh it did make a nice background didn't it. Is that the evergreen bough again? I'm quietly really using that a lot! Also see you're using the on the edge dies...I've been ut off by their length before now, but am seeing them in use more and more and thinking that I'm just being the usual fool!

That made a lovely background, and to think it was mopped up from your table. Nicely done and quick thinking, too. Have a great slightly late WOYWW from #17.

Lots of luscious inks and paints - what a lovely place. I love that you mopped up the ink for later use - impressed !!
