Not much crafting has been happening at my desk this week as we had visitors at weekend, and my craft room doubles up as the guest room! However I did leave Mr M to his new XBOX game last night and make a start on a card. The polar bear was a free stamp with a magazine. The magazine had a shadow added under the bear. I tried that and it looked weird. Months ago I would have just binned the attempt. But, as is the case since I started snooping around your desks, I thought just play around and see what happens ... and I outlined the bear (covering the shadow) with some blue glitter glue. My youngest grandson will love it, and he won't mind or notice that it's not perfect.
The rest of my desk is the tools and materials used to make the card. I used the brayer again, but ended up using the ink duster to finish it off and even out the blue. Thanks for all the tips last week, I have added some stamping card and gloss card to my shopping list, so will further experiment with the brayer when I get those.
It's like having a dozen crafting sisters teaching the young 'un, although I'm not that young anymore. I really do appreciate the tips and advice.
The only other new item on my desk, in the bottom right corner, is two boxes of Artistry Inks, free gift with a magazine subscription. I have not used them yet but the names of the inks are lovely!
