What a week this past week has been! I have been busy both with life and with my crafting and now when life comes knocking my first inclination is to head to the studio and lock the darn door!! It hasn't been the happiest of times and I am sure that it could be worse but right now I am in a poor frame of mind to judge...
On to what is on my work desk this week. I have been busy making cards for a swap and as soon as I can find them I will put them in a post for you to see. Some how in cleaning up my desk to move on to the next project I sat them down 'some where safe' and can't remember where I put them!! This is what my desk looks like today. I am working on ATC's for a swap at OutlawWomenScrapbookEmporium. This is an eclectic group of women who do all sorts of paper crafts and altered art...like this group...on Yahoo! Once you belong you can buy products from the Emporium at a reduced price. Check it out.
The ATC's were suppose to be related to spring so I stamped the flowering tree from the Stampin'Up! set Easter Blessings in VersaMark then embossed it with clear embossing powder on Crumb Cake card stock. After the embossing cooled I used painted bleach on the flowers to bleach the color out. Oh yeah! I used the Tim Holtz ATC die to cut the cards out. Nice huh.
The butterflies are cut from Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime paper using a Creative Memories mini butterfly punch! Oval and sentiment from Stampin'Up!
Here is the finished ATC...now don't make fun of me this is only the second one I have ever made and I think I am getting the hang of it but...sometimes small isn't my forte! I like the bleach resist and found that a lot of the card stocks don't necessarily just fade out but take on a different color when bleached so take care if you try it.
Now I bet I have you wondering what I am going on about with the WOYWW stuff. Head over to Julia's place The Stamping Ground and check out all the awesome sites we hop around (as in blog land hop)to each week and snoop into whats on their work desk this week. I am off to check it out. Have a great week!
