WOYWW

This is my desk today (well last night actually but it's still the same). It was back to work yesterday for me so no time to tidy up after the weekends craft fest! The card on my desk is for the Hero Arts Club Blog challenge - here it is in a 'proper' pic -  
I used these Tulips which I masked and Stamped to form the circle - I think this is quite an old stamp, I got it from E-bay (99p bargain!) for my mum and had a sneaky quick go before giving to her (it was used already!). Coloured with Pro-Markers and layered on plain cardstock stamped with Hero Arts Cling Dots.

You can also just see the tops of some CD cases in my pink box on the right. My lovely other half brought these home from work (they were throwing them out) to replace some of our broken ones - but alas they didn't all get as far as the music collection! I snaffled some of them for storing my clear stamps and have given him instructions to get more!! I altered this one according to the stamps inside - I used alcohol inks directly on the case and and stamped on a piece of white card to fit the cover inside! I did add a bit of glitter to the fairy wings but it doesn't show well on the pics.
I was quite pleased - so much tidier and free!

 I'm entering this into a couple of challenges -
 Sir Stampalot - Magical Worlds
 Stamp Something - Somethings with wings

Happy WOYWW everyone, To join in the WOYWW fun hop over to Julia's blog 'The Stamping Ground' , hope you're having a good week, thanks for looking, Esther xx

  10. I'm CRAZY about that tulip card. It is wonderful how you were able to mask it properly with no break in the circle. You did a fantastic job. Sorry I haven't been here in awhile. I hope to make up for that starting now. Happy WOYWW (#6).

  13. Esther, love the sight of your desk - the paper colours are gorgeous - and the tulip circle is great - a spacing challenge, huh! I think you should let Lavinia know how you've stored that stamp set, it's brillo!
