Welcome to What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday

Morning readers and followers,

How's your week going, so far? Well, I hope ...... also hope you are managing to stay DRY!

Some crafting to share with you

My tag
And a closer view of the twinkle!
Materials used:
  • Chipboard tag
  • Versamark ink used to rub across the tag before applying the Chromium Oxide Green tint pan pastel over the entire tag
  • Versamark ink applied to the Hobbycutz MDF heart die cut, liberally sprinkled with PSX red tinsel embossing powder which was then heat set
  • Inkadinkado mini heart and Kaisercraft border image stamped using Memento bamboo leaves and also used to ink the outer edges of the tag
  • Stamplorations heart stencil used with a metal spatula to apply Faber Castell glass bead glitter gel
  • Dina Wakely sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Red/tan gingham ribbon tied in to a bow and then adhered (along with the heart die cut) to the tag using a glue gun

Mixed Media tag? Let me see ..... I used:- chipboard/pan pastels/inks/stamping/stencilling/glass bead glitter gel/ribbon/Die cut/heat embossing - pretty MM ... IMHO

I'll therefore be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Welove2Create - challenge No. 14 - ANYTHING (Mixed Media) GOES (see above)
  2. Go Tag Thursday - challenge No. 4 - HAVE A HEART (die cut and stamped)
  3. That's Crafty - July challenge - FEMININE (with it's pale colours and twinkle, it's feminine IMHO)
  4. Stamplorations - Mixed Media challenge - MUST USE A STENCIL (MM and stencilled)

And now, since it IS Work Desk Wednesday, here's a peek at my desk ..... I'll be entering this for WOYWW #371 , here, where I am entry #16. WOYWW has been at its temporary home for a few weeks whilst the regular host, Julia, recovers from surgery .... gr8 news, she's starting to feel better and next week's WOYWW will be back at its regular location - GO JULIA and THANKS to Jan for hosting in her absence
