WOYWW 211

Oooh lookit, I actually remembered what day of the week it is, for the first time in 3 weeks! :lol:
 
Yup, I've remembered that it's Wednesday *and* that that means it's time to share what's on my workdesk. Take that, baby brain! :D
 
So here's my desk in all its messy glory:
 
 
 
I've actually quite productive over the past couple of days, mostly making ATCs. I am on a *major* ATC kick at the moment and getting involved in some great swaps over at ATCsforall.com.
 
Scattered about on my desk you can see some of the goodies I've been playing with - Pan Pastels, stencils, Chocolate Baroque and Stampotique stamps, pens, Distress Stains, offcuts of Gelli plate prints, crackle paint... ooh it's been a lot of messy fun! :D
 
There's also an in-progress card sitting on the desk. I've started off with kraft card and Distress Stains but not yet decided where to take it from there...
 
But here's some of the bits and pieces I have finished recently...
 
Three cards for an art journal themed swap:
 


 
And a hand-drawn card, using just a fineliner pen on card:
 
 
I also made a few quite notecards with which to send out my cards for swapping, including this one:
 
 
I love this big butterfly stamp (Swallowtail stamp from Stampin' Up!) and been wanting to play with it and I was tempted by the Clean and Simple challenge at Flutterby Wednesdays. So am entering this card into that challenge.
 
That's it for me for this week... will try and get around and comment on a few more desks this week. The days just seem to get away from me and I never seem to get chance to do as many comments as I would like!

I am loving the ATC cards you have made some fantastic ones. I was very unsure about ATC#s because of the size, I normally work with 8"x 8" but once I started I enjoyed it
have a great WOYWW and enjoy the rest of your week

Wonderful post, Ali! Lovely messy desk and beautiful ATCs! The swallowtail card is perfect for the Flutterby challenge, but the OMG of the whole post is your handdrawn card! Girl, why are you messing with stamps when you can just handdraw your images! You are so blessed with talent!!

Have a wonderful week and HAPPY WOYWW! Darnell #20

your ATC plans sound great and the cards are looking awesome! ...if only there was more time in the day that one could use to craft... ah well, someday when the kids are older ;)
Cheers!

It's good to see you back, Ali. Wonderful butterfly card. And the ATCs are fun, too. Have a great slightly late WOYWW from #17.

Eliza said...

Beautiful butterfly card, but your drawing on card is amazing such good penmanship. Thanks for sharing and good to have you back.

Belated WOYWW
