Welcome to What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday

How's your Wednesday shaping up? Got much on your work desk today?

Not exactly a late night last night and not exactly hung over this morning either - thank goodness!! It was curry at the lovely Raj's for us and our pal (and neighbour), Debbie. We like to go every few weeks - gives us a good chance to natter and we enjoy a good curry - and regular readers will know by know that a good curry is what we always get at Raj's, I'm pleased to report that last night was no exception either!.

Got an ATC to share with you this morning. Again, I wanted to play with a couple of things .... the gloss gel medium (used so disastrously recently on the image transfer - who remembers the FIFTEEN hour drying time?), my recent Dylusions stamp purchase and the latest metallic distress stain from my meet with Debs in Swindon (on Monday), so ....... here's how my experiment turned out.

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • White card cut almost ATC sized
  • Distress stains in spun sugar, dried marigold, tarnished brass "smooshed" on to a craft sheet with a small amount of Dylusions ink in grape
  • Gloss gel medium mixed with the teensiest amount of yellow dylusions ink and then applied through a TCW stencil using a credit card - such a tiny amount of ink and it came out a little brighter than planned although it looks OK in the photo!!
  • Dylusions "doodles" vine inked using Memento tuxedo black
  • Paper Artsy sentiment inked on to white card, cut round and then inked with Distress Ink pumice stone. Sentiment panel and ATC edged with Memento tuxedo black

Hope you like it - I'm still getting to grips with my metallic distress stain ....

And finally - here's is what's on and around my work desk today - it doesn't change much as I have such a small area to craft in so I thought you might to have a nosey round some of my stash instead!!

Have a perfectly splendid Wednesday

Love your experiment, still laughing about the 15 hrs drying time ( I do stuff like that) and am so impressed with your organized bits & pieces. I have loads of room and its all a perfect mess.Perhaps less is more space-wise as well :)

Lovely atc kathy, pretty colours too. Nice to see where you craft, looks like there's no more room for new goodies but we all know better than that, don't we???!!!!! I'm already missing Northern Michigan, the view from the window at work just doesn't make up for it at all!
