Welcome to What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday

Morning readers,

How's your week coming along? Well I hope ... mind you, what a change in the weather? From hot and sticky to chilly and soggy! Not that I am complaining as, frankly, it's been too hot of late. Doesn't seem to have stopped me from crafting though, and I have two makes to share with you today ....

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in red and white
  • On the white snippet I stamped the Deep Red image using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils were used to colour the image, blending with Sansodor and a paper stump
  • Tsukineko gelly roll glitter pens used to highlight and a Faber Castell Pitt pen used to doodle a border on the red layer too

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Lil Patch of crafty friends - challenge No. 60 - ANYTHING GOES
  2. Crafty Critters - challenge No. 4 - ANYTHING (with critters) GOES
  3. The Crazy Challenge - challenge No. 252 - ANIMALS
  4. Take a Word - July 9th challenge - HEARTS .... I see lots of hearts on my ATC!

And, keeping with the CRITTER theme .. a Christmas card! Oh and, btw, I am LOVING colouring in once more - soooo out of the habit until I got pencils for my birthday! Whoop de doooooooo
