I discovered "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday"a couple of weeks ago and I have been delighted with all the lovely comments other players have left me when they hopped by - And they are making some really inspiring items!
SO here I am again...and I will link this post to the Stamping Ground.
To be honest I have only just realised that it is Wednesday - we have had our granddaughters staying for a couple of days. Because of lockdown this is the first time we have been able to see them, since moving to Australia - and now Victoria is going into lockdown again...
Anyway we have had fun, even doing a little bit of crafting - here they are with Aunty Sophie lighting the candles they had just made:
As a consequence, not much has been happening on my desk for WOYWW 578!
You can see that pelican never ending card that I got out to show Izzy - and a scattering of pens... I have been taking part in Leigh's Summer Buzz blog hop - and I had one final image on my desk to colour. I thought I would try and get it made into something in the last few minutes of the hop!
Having coloured the image with mainly Promarkers
I made an easel card.
The image is from Leigh's Busy Bees Collage and Sentiment Set.
I started with a white card base and an extra square of white card to make the base. I matted these with a paper from crafterschoice Minerals 12 by 12 pad.
I then added the image trimmed and divided in two pieces as shown in the pictures.
The stand uses a sentiment from Leigh's Honeybees and Sentiments Set.
Finally I added a bow and a flower embellishment.
I will add this to “The Summer BUZZ Blog Hop”
It is always difficult to make these cards lie flat when you want to photograph them.
So I used my new purchase - the Wendy Vecchi 7" Stay station - to help.
I really bought this to help with stencilling... so watch this space for when I get the opportunity to show you...
All for now... Happy Crafting and happy WOYWW - and thanks for visiting!
