Morning lovely crafters and all my WOYWW friends, the big day has finally arrived. My pif is made and ready to go so I hope whoever follows me on the list today likes it, it was made and will be sent with my love. I thought I better get posting early as we are up early and on our way out. It's half term here in the UK and Hubby has the week off too, his first holiday since Christmas, so we are making the most of it.
Here is my desk as I left it last night. I am in the middle of a card making session spurred on after making the ATC for The Stampman swap, which you can see further down this post. I had the beautiful Habico Oriental stamps out and decided to carry on stamping with them. I've coloured them with distress inks and promarkers, nothing like mixing mediums!!
You can't see from the photo but I'm also sharing the dining table with my Hubby who is on his computer on the other side playing World Of Warcraft!!!!! Don't get me started. Still he doesn't complain about my crafting so I try not to complain about his gaming obsession.
If you want to celebrate with Julia the 2nd Anniversary of this wonderful world of work desks she has created then pop over to her lovely blog and see what it's all about. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Now, on to the ATC I made for the Stampman ATC Swap. The first of the month certainly comes round with some speed and this time the theme is TREES. I saw a lady on C&C using shaving brushes with inks and remembered I had some stashed away and dug them out to have a play with creating a little scene using torn paper. I used Broken China and Bundled Sage Distress Inks after masking the blossom branches which were stamped first. The flowers are painted in with Worn Lipstick and some stickles added for a touch of bling. After struggling with the size of ATC's initially I'm beginning to like the challenge now.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week whatever you are doing.
