WOYWW 428 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!
I cannot tell a lie! it's a bit messy today as I'm in between projects again.

 
Rose asked last week about the tags that I have hanging around which are here. They are just sample pieces.
When I remember to do it, if I use a new technique I make a sample on one of the tags just as a reminder.
I've had them out today as I've been trying something out with the Oxides can't tell you yet but it is different, however if you have a look around the desk you might get a clue.
 
 
Just a few new arrivals this week.

 
Set 2. of the Distress Oxide refills and some new Jane Davenport Washi tapes.



So that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Masterboard Monday.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

I am here today to show you a card made with this Masterboard which I showed you last week:


 The lovely pen stamp was an old one by Inkadinkado.
 
 
Spellbinders mat and Tim Holtz text, ink blot and numbers.
 
I stamped the blots (Prima stamps) onto the black card blank before mounting the layers and used black split pins in the corners.


Quite pleased with the way this looks.

 I would love to hear your comments.
 
Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Back to the Craft Barn getting 'Better and Better'.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi everyone just here to let you know this is another project for the Craft Barn and it's now live.

Been working with  Carabelle and Kaisercraft Stamps and stencils and here is a peek of how I used it. If you would like to see how I made this then pop over to The Craft Barn for full details.

 
I had so much fun making this card with water colouring techniques using the Oxide inks for both the backgrounds and the ribbon.



 Tutorial for making this project is available now at The Craft Barn.

I would love to hear what you think about my project and any comments will be gratefully received.
 
Look forward to seeing you at The Craft Barn.
 
Happy crafting,
 
Angela xXx
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Friday Fun Day with Smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

We went to Bakewell Show last week and I promised to show you photos however it had rained the day before which left the showground very wet!

 
Luckily I had taken my wellies but you would be surprised how many people arrived with just ordinary shoes....crazy people!
 
Stan is examining the ground!
Yes Stan it is wet!

 
Not sure you can actually see the water but there was plenty of it.

 
Unfortunately it meant that some of the trades people were unable to get onto the show ground and they were actually towing horse boxes onto the showground so I bet they had fun trying to get off again.
They have no solid ground at the entrances so when just a few lorries go over it you can guess it just becomes sludge causing them to get stuck.

 
Somebody wanted to show you these lovely paw marks, can't imagine who made those Lol!


 It did not stop us from having a nice day as it didn't rain so much while we were there but lets hope for better weather next year.
We did bring home a traditional Bakewell tart but forgot to photograph it before we devoured it!

We have however had some nice days since.
A walk in the park.


My grapes are getting bigger.


And my apples and plums too.
 

 
Him-In-Doors went out and did some weeding and found these in the garden. I had to photograph them but didn't find any fairies Lol!
 


 So that's it for today.

Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 
And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

WOYWW 427 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!

 
I've been working on various cards this week as there seems to be loads of birthdays and anniversaries this month.
The stamped images on my desk are from a very old stamp by Inkadinkado.

 
These are some new stamps that are popping out of the 'Exploding Box' but not got round to using them yet.
 
Not really much else that's different today.

So that's me done.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Masterboard Monday.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

I am here today to show you some new Masterboards:

 I made this first one using Distress Inks and Distress Oxides and a variety of stamps by 'Indigo Blu'.
Apply the ink to a craft mat, spray with water and swipe the card through it.
Dry this and repeat until satisfied with the effect.
Then I added the stamped images and a text stamp by 'A Stamp in the Hand', very old but I love the style of the text.
 
 
The second one was started with clear embossed ink blots by 'Prima Stamps' then swipe the card through various shades of Distress Oxides.
When this is dry stamp the ink blots in black, first and second generation ink and add a sentiment stamp randomly around the design.
 
 
Hope you like them.
 
Cards using these Masterboards will follow soon.
 
Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,
