WOYWW 168

Another Wednesday, another peek at crafty desks the world over. Yes, I'm a bit more prepared this week and actually managed to remember what day of the week it is! :lol:

I've been doing a wee bit of crafting tonight so the view of my desk right now (technically it is Wednesday morning) is the usual chaos of untidied crafting bits and bobs and the card that I've just finished making:


Unforunately, it's one of those cards that we all hate to make. Sadly, one of my lovely DT colleagues has suffered a bereavement so this is a card to send to her to let her know I'm thinking of her.

I had a go at monochome colouring for the first time on this card (using a digi stamp from Stitchy Bear Stamps) and am quite pleased with the results. I think the overall effect is quite subtle and vintagey and fits well with the muted colours of the papers.

The big pile of digi stamps from last is still awaiting colouring in... in fact, the pile has grown since last week! I just keep finding more pretty digi stamps that I have to have! I suspect I may be addicted... ;)

That's all I have to share for this week so thanks for stopping by and I hope your enjoy your jaunt around the WOYWW desks this week.

Hi there Ali, I see you have the same ribbon/twine freebie as me from the magazine. Really love that digi image so I'm going to suss it out on the Stitchy Bear website. Like you I think I'm addicted to digis too.

Lovely tasteful card if a sad reason to have to make it ! What type of card do you print the digistamps on for colouring ? Can you resize them to whatever you want ? Haven't moved beyond old fashioned hand stamping yet ! Ali #54

Very lovely, muted card... so sad, but I'm sure this will be much appreciated. Monochrome colouring is really beautiful.

The card is lovely! I am addicted ti digi"s too, but as addictions go, at least this one is not dangerous.

The card is lovely and I don't think you can beat 'thinking of you' in these circumstances - it says it all.

Loved snooping around your desk - I had a rake amongst all the crafty bits but somehow couldn't see the pile of digi stamps ... should really go to Specsavers ;)

Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #105

Bereavement cards are always difficult to make but this is very appropriate, and crafting is (mostly) very calming. Well maybe except for all the mess all around LOL

I quite like colouring digi's with the same shades of colours, they can look really nice! Sorry about your friend, it's nice of you to send her a hand made card. Have a great week, thanks for my snoop! Happy WOYWW

Julia Dunnit said...

There are much worse addictions!! I think! At least a pile of digis doesn't come with price tags attached like a pile of new stamps or clothes!
Love looking at all the bits and pieces on your desk, apart from the fact that you still have a large-ish working area, it feels very like my space today.

Katie Bolinger said...

I love to see a well used desk. Isn't it funny how the space we use gets smaller and smaller and we work. Lovely card too.
