WOYWW #265

Welcome to another “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday” (WOYWW), the brilliant blog hop initiated by our lovely hostess, Julia at TheStamping Ground….and you can see all the deets there.

So, while being motivated by the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Vol.#3 (which you can see the current piece here)  to get in the craft room far more regularly…and as (Gulp! Thanks Hettie) the Holiday Craft Show is fairly right around the corner..I've been in here quite a bit this past week.  (No...I will not show holiday cards yet…relax!!)  What is here now is the start of my Husband’s birthday card.  The Compendium challenge was to watercolor with distress markers, so I kept on going, ‘cause I LOVE those markers! The stamp is from “Our Daily Bread”  as is the saying,  A few ink pads are still out, as are the Sizzix thin dies…a few Distress Stains from the challenge that I may end up using for this…and of course the ever-present Arizona Green Tea…for times I just don’t dare to drink and ink…

So now stop at Julia’s to hop around workdesks around the world! And Happy July 4th for those on this side of the Atlantic!  Happy Crafting everyone!

  5. Hi Kim,

    There have been a few WOYWWers that have started making Christmas cards already. But then I think how quickly the first part of year has flown by -- they might be wise!

    Your husbands card looks like it's going to be great. When you find something you love (distress markers) keep using them! I'd say you've mastered the use of them.

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (60)

  6. Can't wait to see the finished project... nice color combo. :)

  7. Hello Kim, Your watercolour lighthouse is looking great - perfect for a male themed card. You're not alone in making C Cards. I've been making them regularly throughout the year ... if I didn't I'd have to go out and, heaven forbid, buy them come the time! Wishing you a fab weekend. Elizabeth x #47

  8. I to celebrated my curiosity watercolour challenge, but I didn't read the instructions properly, I missed the marker bit out and just watercoloured with re-inkers! I am going to try harder next time. Hope you win it
