What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday

Hello bloggers :) hope everyone's well, thank you so much for visiting and leaving lovely comments :)

I didn't manage to post last week but feeling bit better now and am delighted that i got back to my desk yesterday...I am working on a collage picture for myself(!) and have been busy inking and heat embossing the bits I want to include...I have been using die cut shapes from the Periwinkle Collectables pack by Kaisercraft.  I experimented with inks, powders and stamps on the right.  The wooden tag is how the embossed tag with the key looked before I altered it...Am planning to add some photos of my wife and cats :) and I'm probably going to paint, stamp and heat-emboss the background...

I made the following birthday card for my amazing carer;  I used elements from my fairyland stash, it sparkles more in real-life!

Happy WOYWW!!  If you're unfamiliar with this intriguing desk-sharing blog, please visit Julia Dunnit over at the

Greetings all :) Such a joy to have daylight for longer, more time to craft!  Yes!

It's wednesday again, how quickly the week has flown!  Time to share our creative desks for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, pop over to Julia's blog to find out more

This week I've been playing with my mountain of spectrum pens and i think i have finally cracked it-or thereabouts! 

On the right are my previous attempts with the Suzi With Bunny stamp - by Whimsy Stamps.  On the left is my best try so far.  I would add more highlighting to the jeans next time and another tone for the hair I think.  I'm pleased with the bow, shoes and teddy. 

As a beginner colouring in with these pens I have learnt some helpful tips! So, firstly, use the right card for stamping your image on to and it needs to be good quality to absorb the pens, test out the colours on a scrap of the card, plan where your high-lighting and shading is going to go before starting colouring in, plan which colours you are going to use for each section, take your time, practise lots and have faith that you will get the hang of it eventually!!

This birthday card I made with the Hot Diggity Dog decoupage and paper.  It is for my 6 year old nephew.  The football embellishments are a pound shop find.

This week I am going to have fun playing with my fairyland stash of goodies and whatever else inspires me along the way :)

Thank you so much for visiting, have a fabulous crafty week :)
