Morning all. Wednesday yet again. I'm sure someone is winding these weeks on faster and faster. It seems to be time to bare all on my workdesk every other day. It maybe has something to do with the terrible weather we have been having here in Yorkshire this week. It started raining on Saturday morning and apart from a quick glimmer of sunshine yesterday afternoon, hasn't stopped since. Oh how I long for that glorious weather of only a week ago!!
Here is the view out of my kitchen window this dismal Wednesday morning.
Still, it's perfect crafting weather, so onto my desk. You can see my first attempt at an inked panel, which I've been meaning to try for months after first seeing them in Craft Stamper and then all over Blogland at one time or another. The circle Fairy card from the last post was meant to be one of these but the inking went wrong, hence the lengthy process. I think I've cracked it now and today's attempt was fairly successful.
I hand cut a rectangular mask trying to keep things simple and inked it with Bundled Sage and Broken China Distress ink before spraying it with gold mica powder and giving it a quick dry with the heat gun.
The stamps are all from Inkylicious, my new favourite company. I'm in love with all their stamps at the minute. I finished the card with just a simple black mat and some stickles.
While we were on holiday in Italy my Mum fell and broke her wrist and since we got home I've been taking her to hospital on a regular basis to first have a new pot on, then have it taken off and this week for physiotherapy. She has now been signed off and after we got home on Monday afternoon I had my lunch and thought if I don't go and do something with this dark weather I'm likely to doze off which is definitely not allowed so I decided to tidy my craft room. Well, this turned into a huge reorganisation and clean. It is now very tidy and very clean and I love this new storage idea, a shoe hanger that hangs over the door, another thing I saw in Craft Stamper this month. It's a brilliant way of creating extra storage without taking up anymore space.
Well, that's me this week. If you want to join in with all this desk nosiness then pop over to see our leader of desks, Julia, HERE.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have found some sunshine in your part of the world and if you have can you send some my way please.
