WOYWW #347

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.
Been very busy this week!  I’m taking an Online Cardmaking Class, “Watercolor for card makers, intermediate techniques”.  I had taken a beginning one, but used watercolor markers or water brushes…this is So not that! LOL!  So, my desk is covered with some of the homework from day 2. 

The poppies were to test different paper brands…as with stamping, it really makes a difference! The roses were the last 2 attempts …at least they are starting to look like flowers!  The card lower right is a Pattern on Pattern Emboss Resist.  Of course I used a very fine IO cover-a-card background, and the embossing powder got sucked up by the paper, so it’s not that evident, but pretty cool for all that. The die cut is using a glazing technique; which was very vibrant until I used the heat gun...weird.   The paints are a Winsor & Newton Cotman set.

And here are my pears and corn flowers from yesterday…I have to say; pretty impressed with the pears! Drawn free-hand—wet on wet technique. Woot!

So there is my desk area for the week.  Now go visit Julia’s and see what the rest of the Desker’s are up to!  Have a great week everyone!


  1. What delightful colours your watercolour flowers are

  2. Hey, look at you and your amazing watercolours! Those pears are fab. Love the colours of the Hello card too, the pattern makes it look like an Argyle fabric :-)

  5. Very pretty card. I love your poppies! Wish I had just an ounce of painting talent lol. Apparently that gene skipped me.
