Smiley from Oh my BADness, it’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for another What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  I didn’t get to participate last week and I really did miss it.

So here’s my work table today . . . before the after stamping cleanup.


Here’s the card I was working on . . . my entry for the Making Art Challenge on the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group.


The challenge this week was to make a card with a chipboard flower and use pigment ink resist.

The chipboard flowers are some I’ve had for a few years now.  I stamped the background (from Studio 490 Art by the Number) in Snowcap pigment ink and then covered them in Tumbled Glass distress ink.  The leaves were die cut from Spellbinders™ S4-321 Nested Leaves in GrungePaper and then inked in Crushed Olive.  The sentiment (from Studio 490 Flower Art) was stamped on cream cardstock and then die cut with S4-310 Labels Eighteen.

The designer paper is some new that I picked up from CHA.  It’s from Fancy Pants and called It’s the Little Things.  This will be available from eclectic Paperie once the site is back up (it’s down for some upgrades and I couldn’t get a link for you).

I picked up some seam binding recently too.  I bought 100 yards of white so I could dye it to match what I was working on.  For today’s card, I dyed it with Tumbled Glass, misted it with water, scrunched it all up and then blew it dry.

Well, that’s all I have for today.  I’m heading back down to the studio to pick things up and start on my next project.

Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, embrace the adventures that come your way today!
