What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday

Got the Hump Day Wednesday Blues? I guess you could say that I have - especially when you see the project below ....

My trading card swap buddy sent me the materials below ...
Hmmmmm - now, what to do with these babies - cute image isn't it?
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • I used Alcohol markers to colour the image, highlighting the tassle with a Zig Wink of Stella glitter pen
  • I cut out one of the patterned images and applied quickie glue leaving to dry - I intended to use this as a mask so it needed to dry in order to be re-positionable.
  • Once the mask was in place I inked the Savvystamps image using versamark ink and then applied Phthalo blue pan pastel over the top and set using fixative leaving the mask in place.
  • I mixed a tiny amount of London Blue Dylusions ink spray with some modelling paste and applied with a credit card through a TCW harlequin mask and set aside to dry before trimming and mounting on my ATC blank.
  • I cut out the pyjamas and night cap from the second patterned image and added a couple of small foam squares (to give my paper piecing some dimension) and glue to the edges before adding to my ATC
  • Finally I whipped round the outside with my Tim Holtz blending tool loaded with Tumbled Glass distress ink
Here's a side view so you can see the 3D effect with the paper piecing and modelling paste
Hope you like it and I sure hope Pam approves of my treatment of her materials - now, what to send back!

A nice surprise arrived by e-mail, a crafting pal and I have finally arranged a meet at Snazzy's in Swindon on Monday - looking forward to that already ...... I HOPE that they've installed a credit card reader by now but I'll be going with a modest amount of cash - just in case!

And now ..... What IS on my work desk this Wednesday? This little lot - I really MUST have a clear up before much longer - you can see I still haven't put away my savvystamp stamp, having finished my ATC!! Ooopsie - naughty crafter!

Have a fab Wednesday after all, it WILL soon be the weekend!!
