It's Wednesday once more ....

Hi there readers and followers,

I made this ..... A REALLY Clean And Simple card ....

My card
The front and back of my card and the back of my envelope
The inside of my card
Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Two white card panels cut to 9.5 x 12.5cm
  • Two light blue card panels cut to 9.9 x 12.9 cm
  • Dina Wakely large star stamped using Brilliance pearlescent sky blue ink
  • Dina Wakely smaller star stamped using Ranger Archival watering can ink
  • TPC Studio sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink

This card couldn't be MUCH more CAS (and still be a greeting card!) ... I'll be entering it for the following challenges:-
  1. Simply Less Is More - challenge No. 272 - USE THREE STAMPS (3rd entry)
  2. AAA Cards - challenge No. 62 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - challenge No. 32 - ANYTHING GOES
  4. Through The Craft Room Door - challenge No. 19 - ANYTHING GOES
And then it was back to my journal page, started a couple of days ago .. can't remember my last post about it? See it here .. this is so NOT Clean And Simple!!

My page
And a closer view
Materials used (in addition to those listed in the linked post):
  • Dylusions border stamped using Ranger Archival jet black
  • White signo uniball used to highlight areas and colour border
  • TCW grungey line stencil through which I sponged Ranger Archival jet black ink, randomly
  • Ranger circles stencil and baby wipe used to knock back colour ... it's alot harder to do once the project is really dry!
  • Stampers Anonymous sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Dina Wakely figure stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Faber Castell Pitt Pen "S" thickness used to write sentiment
  • Inkadinkado scribbled circles stamped using Hero Arts neon orange, Memento lilac posies and Ranger Archival jet black inks
  • Dylusions letter image stamped partially and randomly using Color Box white ink
  • Dylusions circles image stamped partially and randomly using Memento lilac posies ink
  • Stardust stickles used to randomly draw lines around some of the Inkadinkado circles to give texture and interest

And look at this little baby bird ... awwww

And now, since it IS Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday ... here's the desk this week ..

I'll be entering this workdesk for week #359 over at WOYWW

Two very different styles demonstrated there, but both are fabulous. Is that really your workspace, I fill that much space with clutter before I even start crafting! Cara x

Okay... how did you manage to do 2 very lovely pieces and have such a neat desk? Mine would (does) look like a tornado blew across. LOL Love CAS cards. Great for those last minute occasions. Great colors for that journal page. Simple compared to some I've seen. Very calming. Creative Blessings! Kelly #43
