Its Wednesday again and as I missed putting up my desk last week I am here again with my little corner in the back bedroom. I did visit a few desk last week though and was intrigued with some of the different desks I saw.
Before I reveal my desk though I thought I had better post the two cards I made with the metal shapes which were lurking on the desk a couple of weeks ago.
I have given the metal pieces a hanging ribbon so that they can be removed from the card and hung on the tree if recipients wish. The first card I made like this left a very ‘naked’ card so with these I have put a shape underneath the shape so that when you remove the decoration you still have a pretty card to look at. the metal was cut with a nestability shape before I ran it through the Big Shot in an embossing folder.
Now my desk. It is very dark and dismal here – again – so even my south-facing desk is not getting too much light.
There are two finished cards and two to finish for my next ‘Card Purse’ which is stood up on the right. I bought myself some new distress inks on Saturday and some ‘Cut and Dry Foam’ so you can see the total collection of my inks near the back – all 5 or 6 of them!!. I will have to have a really good play with them at some time as I am not using them to their full potential but at least with the foam I will use them a little bit more than I did when I had only 3. The pink piece of card right at the front is some Craftwork Card cutouts with which I had been making cards with earlier on in the week. I haven’t posted them yet as I want to do a few more and then post a few bundles. They are hopefully destined to be sold in fives at the fair.
Am off now to link my desk and have a quick nosey at some of the ones already posted which can be found here on Julies Blog.
