Thanks again to Julia for organising another WOYWW – for all messy crafting voyeurs lol! (See the link on the right of my blog.)
This week I’ve been working on my painted ATCs and yesterday started making some of them up into thank you cards to give the various volunteer carers who’ve been coming in each day to help me while my hubby’s been away. He’s home now, and today I’ve not had a good health day and I’ve been too exhausted to go in my ARTHaven except to take a photo of my table to show you what I’ve been up to.
On the table you can see the almost-completed cards on the left (they just need a sentiment) and on the right, some ATCs ready to be matted onto some paper which has been inked with distress inks, and which needs some background stamping. All these ATCs on the craft mat have been matted onto co-ordinating card, and the ones at the back of the table will be left un-matted as I want to retain them as simple ATCs.
On the far left you can see my new Rock-a-Blocks which came in the post yesterday – I’ve been aware of this wonderful tool for a while now, and finally decided to get some as I was ordering some larger stamps, and I wish I’d known about them from the beginning as they are brilliant! You can see some of my new stamps on the table – the swirl and 2 sizes of grasses, both of which I have used on this project. There’s a test piece just above the finished cards on the left.
At the back of the table you can see my Inkylicious Ink Dusters which are the best thing since sliced bread (but don’t taste quite so good). I never use anything else for inking these days. Also on the table are the distress inks I’ve been using for these cards, and my photo glue which I’ve finally settled on as the best thing for matting and layering for someone who’s incapable of getting it straight!!!
Hopefully I’ll be able to get these cards completed over the next few days.
Happy WOYWW, folks.
