WOYWW 12-1-2011


I almost didn’t bother with a WOYWW this week as I was so disorganized yesterday I didn’t have time to take a photo of my desk (which wouldn’t have mattered anyway as it was clear of all crafty goodness – I spent the day tidying up.)  This morning it’s back to a mess again as I am deep in the midst of the new Stampotique designers challenge.  It always spurs me on to trying some new or long forgotten technique.  This week is masks so I am revisiting masking stamps and my stamp positioner.  Here is a sneaky peek in progress:

The head comes first, then the alternative body, then the splotchy background.  That one is a new image from Smeared Ink, from Emily at Saturday’s crop.  Love it already!  I stupidly stamped off the edge of the page so now I am re-doing it.  Then the colouring and the “sentiment” and the final assembly.  I may finish it today, I may not.

I’ll be so far down the WOYWW list I doubt many will see it but hey ho…I’ll try to pop round later today and see what everyone else is up to.  Going to a crop with the lovely Julia on Saturday so I need some inspiration for a project.  I have a layout pack ready but even with the chatting I doubt that will keep me busy ALL day!

Just a quick addition!  I DID finish and here is the final card:

I’ll add the details tomorrow!

And I want to add the 2nd card, the one I like better:

And you can read about it in the post here.

  8. Eek…those stamps are soo ugly but there is just something about them that lures me in! *Ü* It may be the way you portray them MA – there’s a kind of urkness about them. I’m still deciding whether I want one….you know, to make me like them….LOL..why do I do that?! *Ü* TFS. ~Glen~
