WOYWW #294

Welcome to WOYWW…the “What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday”  blog hop created by Julia at the StampingGround,  so hop over there to join the fun.

 Despite having a 3-day weekend, I had very little craft-room time; but, what time I had seemed fairly productive!  And…bonus…still pretty tidy; generally not an indicator of creative productivity!

So, what you see are two of the cards I finished, and will actually be used. I know; odd statement.  But both were products of a class or challenge, which usually means I keep them in my “Ideas” basket. But nope, these puppies are going to be sent out.  There is the package of TH Christmas words dies, which I really need to find a place for, a few of other various tools that need to get put back in the carousel. 

And here are the cards: This one will be for my girlfriends bbirthday , and I also used for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #20, which was watercoloring using the Distress Markers.  The stamp is from one of the Stampers Anonymous Classics sets.  I finally got to try the Distress marker spritzer…with mixed results.  Probably needs practice.

This card for my Nephew’s birthday was done using a technique I was following from the “Stenciled” Online Card Classes.  This is where you aim at a corner, and let the inks fall down the rest of the sheet. I used Dylusions Spray Inks; Love the color…find them amazingly messy.  At least these were contained in a spray box.  And I think I got a bit heavy-handed;  but a pretty cool technique to remember none-the-less. (of course, now that I'm looking at it; not sure it fits an 11 year old boy, despite his obsession with fishing...hmm)

So this week is a bit more settled, so I’ll do much better popping by, but head to Julia’s now and portal to other wonderful desks around the world. Have a wonderful Weekend everyone.


  1. Fun cards! I like the fish one. It gives you the feeling of looking down in a tiled fish pond. I like how your spraying came out. Fun times in your place! Judy #76

  4. Both are wonderful cards!! I have the Distress Ink markers and I love them! I also have the spritzer but haven't taken the time to try it out. I really should! I hope you have a wonderful week!
