WOYWW time ...


Wednesday again ... although to be 100% truthful (which I do TRY to be) this is actually a desk from slightly earlier. You wouldn't like it at the moment - bare, clear, tidy - no, I don't like it either.

So anyway, I was card-making for a Stampin Up project with some new colours. Pot of water is out again (but clean this time) as I was only doing some shading work on that there flower. I do love water-colouring, paint brush in one hand and stamp in the other seems to be my natural habitat!

And in case you're interested, here's a close up of what I was working on.

And this is the other card you can see which I'd just finished - inspired by an article in the Craft Stamper magazine you can see open on the desk. I was messing about creating backgrounds on a sheet of watercolour paper, stamped butterflies with a bleach stamp pad, and you then iron it with a hot iron and it bleaches out the background colour where you've stamped. Simples!

So if you're interested in seeing more desks get on over to Julia's place and join in the fun! I apologise in advance that I won't be able to get around everyone's desk - I literally physically can't sit at the computer that long. I just about managed it when we got to 50 desks but now there's so many it's just impossible. I do love seeing as many as I can get to, and really really appreciate the comments you're kind enough to leave.

Lovely cards Rosie, really fab. I have to have my paint water and tea cup on different sides or I end up dipping my brush in the wrong one - or worse!

Dear Rosie-I love your creations and I'm glad you snagged my ribbon as someone has just told me she googled FMS to find out about it because of my blog-the more people know the more might be done to find out about it. I got my ribbon from another blog "another day, another card". I do believe I wouldn't be as well as I am now (or even here)if it weren't for cardmaking. When I was really bad was the time I spent organising my paper. Sometimes I just sat in my room. I daren't reorganise too much because my memory is so poor now. You are right sometimes I just can't stand my desk and have to tidy. Love BettyXXX

Uber tidy ... Loving the cards ... a lot ... Sorry I did n't get round yesterday ... Mr Blogger threw his toys out the pram and refused to let me play! I do recall you asking me a question ... can't remeber it exactly ... but was it a question about stamps ... the answer is probably ... Wendy Vecchi :0) Have a good week hunny bun X

Lynn said...

I learned something here today, I did not know you could buy a bleach stamp, maybe because I don't get out much lately LOL... your stamp work is always so stunning Rosie, love seeing what's on your desk :)
