Julia who started it all. WOYWW stands for What's on My Workdesk Wednesday, and is regularly visited by around 200 each week, so there are plenty of desks to drool over, gasp at in horror and generally mooch around. There is not a lot to be shown this week on my desk, partly because I have just finished one project and about to start another. Another reason is that a lot of the things I have on the go are destined for publication in future weeks, either as a new member of the DT for Craft A Scene, some things for other challenges, or for friends later in the month.
I can show you this one card which I did for a Clarity Stamps Club challenge for August. As far as I can remember, the brief was to use a carol, a star and gold and black.The carol was printed in reverse on acetate (if you don't print in reverse, it will backwards on the finished image), then I sprayed the back with adhesive before applying gilding flakes. Once it was burnished, I mounted it on gold mirri card, the on to black Clarity card.
The star was a Clarity stamp, which I printed twice on to the reverse of the gold mirri card, I cut one out, following the lines exactly, while the second was cut oversize, so that I could decoupage them ti give a bit of dimension. The three wise men were also from Clarity, but were stamped using second generation ink to avoid slipping on the pearlescent card, then I brayered over them to attempt a look of desert sand. I followed the theme onto the insert, continuing the carol, star and wise men. Again I used the brayer around the edges.
If you have seen enough here, do go over to Julia to some of the other desks on show this week. Please leave us comments, we love to read them, and we will come over and visit you in return. See you soon.
