WOYWW 87

It's that time of the week again when all over the world everyone heads over to see what everyone is busy with, yes, what's on your workdesk wednesday over at Stamping Ground
Here is my desk
Two main projects on the go at the moment, to the right is the beginnigs of a tag that will be for the CCC challenge and Simon says stamp and show challenge (Once I make my mind up as to exactly what I am going to do with it!)
In the middle is a bit of a production line that has been drying overnight (because I drowned them in glossy accents!) 

They will end up as charms for a charm swap. Not finished yet but so far I'm pleased with them.
Here's a close up of one of them which is a bit further along


I stamped an inchie tree (Inkadinkadoo) onto card, coloured with copics cut it into a circle and placed it into a bottle top. The pixie (my own design) was stamped onto white shrink plastic and coloured with pencils before shrinking,  When they are done i'll post the finished charms before sending them off to the swap.

So, I've got lots to keep me busy today which is good as it's dull and grey outside.
Be blessed everyone

Not visited you before sorry. I sew full time so do struggle to get round to all the WOYWW desks. I will be back. You look to have some really fab stash in your crafting space. Love your WIPs today.

great work on the charms - love the expression 'drowned in Glossy Accnets, sums up so much of the stuff I use the GA on! Ingenious use of the inchies - I have that set and think I've only used about 3 of them.

Mrs A. said...

I'm a newby to your desk too.Crafty re-use of the cutlery tray. I like it! I have set bottle caps with resin before but not tried glossy accents. Never used shrink plastic either so
I can see I have some catching up to do. Hope this works tonight as couldn't post yesterday.

First visit to your desk too. I do a random journey each week so far. Your desk has so much within reach which I value a lot. The little pixie design...did you have a stamp made? Or is it a digi stamp? Very appealing. Thanks.
Ros.
