Happy desk peeking day, if you'd like to see more spaces or play along
the link up for this blog hop starts here at our hostess
There is also a new Instagram hashtag of #WOYWW
A long view of the last thing I had worked on was some Simon Says Stamp paws diecuts on watercolor paper as the clean and simple challenge this week at SCS was "paws" ( this is as far as I got with it) its really hot here for this time of year and this space is more like finished attic space than a real room so, on a day I go to work by the time I get home even with all the fans going and the window AC on its too hot to play.
Farther to the left of the center is some of the things that were made recently ( lets say the last few weeks or so and this was as far as those piles got) The top watercolor piece is missing some "eggs" from a featured stamper card I did on Sunday and since I have not blogged about that yet, I will stick it below the desk mess shots.
The center. the cats were done just because, I am leaning towards making 4 little 3X3 cards very CAS with these paws and cats but, I have to find (smaller) sentiments to fit and I'd rather have snarky funny ones so, it may be another day or two before these are finished. the markers are out because, the card below I cut two of the layered robin dies and only made one so far. ( so that combo of red,orange & brown is the colors I used for the red on the card below) The gold hearts are fails of what went onto a sample for this coming week's IC that I wanted a small gold heart on.
The Robin was colored with markers & and water brush and the eggs are an Oxide distress background that was water colored using a plastic baggie to move the ink from the glass mat to the paper. ( I didn't really think of a stamp that I thought would look good on this piece ( see above) so I set it aside. ( it was the first Watercolor Wednesday challenge attempt) It called for using acetate to move the ink and I think that may have been a little better because, that is not a smooth thing like a baggie but, what I really didn't like about it when it was dry was how much purple I got into it haha.
The finished card, this is a link that goes to the card from Patti
that I used as a jump start for mine. There is some vintage photo oxide on the edges of the front card base and nest, and the bird and sentiment are up on foam pop dots on this.
That's about it from me, they have ramped up testing where I live so the ice sales are crazy right now and I will spend 3 of 4 weeks a month instead of every other week, on the road fetching it now as a normal thing for the next little while. Thanks for stopping by.
