I have a special offer on this week, not one, but two desks to share. The first is my usual craft place, my dining room table. Taken from a slightly different angle this week and twice as messy - must be a Twofer week.
Inkpads galore, even more stamps, clear embossing powder and a new stamp, the flowers on the right which I haven't used yet - give me time. Right in the middle and towards the right is a bunch of cards made at our monthly craft club meeting on Saturday and finished off at home. The technique we did was faux batik when you emboss an image in clear on white card, ink over the top, then iron off the EP to give a negative image. Then you over stamp with coloured inks and finally with black to add a bit of drama. At the workshop I realised my black Versafine pad had finally hit the dust, well it must be at least 8 years old, so of I trotted on Saturday to a local craft fair and bought a replacement....and six new Archival inkpads, a couple of stamps, some of that sticky EP (I cant get on with Flitter Glue at all), couple of masks, couple of stencil brushes and....well that's enough isn't it? If you want a closer look at the cards then I blogged them a couple of days ago so scroll down a bit and there they are.
My second desk is the little table in my conservatory which I took over for a bit of sewing.
Making a Kindle case for my niece, called Susan would you believe :). Out came the Cuttlebug for the flowers and I had to make a trip to our local fabric shop for a bit of batting but that was all I bought yesterday :(
Enough of my spending habits, I'm off to look at what everyone else is buying/making courtesy of Julia's Desk hop, might just bump into you on the journey.
