Another week gone already and another 'cheat' photo for WOYWW!
It was actually taken on Sunday when I was making some cards. I had been playing around with an ink pad and brayer, a leaf stamp and embossing powder. The leafy background in the foreground (if that makes sense) was fine until I decided to put black Versafine ink on top - which didn't set on glossy paper. I should have known that! So I had to start again. Hence the leaf background further away from the camera.
You can see my storage tub of ribbons. All muddled up and mixed together. But I love them that way. I love delving in when I'm looking for a specific colour and seeing what else I find! There's also one of the magazine holders I use to store my unmounted stamps vertically so they don't get damaged. Being a crafter for x number of years, I obviously have more than one of these! Make what you will of the quotation on the side of it!
Despite the false start, I managed to make two birthday cards for male members of the family. Also this card for our Wedding Anniversary this weekend - only don't let on to Him Indoors I'd forgotten all about it until the reminder I set on the computer popped up! See, I knew I'd forget and had to set the reminder last year!
I know we crafters don't waste anything and like to be frugal, but I do feel a little bit guilty about how I made this card for Hubby. I used the front of a card I was sent and cut it down to form a frame which I then laid over red mirror card. But I'm sure he'll never realise it's a recycled card and I'm sure he'll like it. He's one of the very few men I've come across who like flowery cards!
Everything has been put back into the cupboards now though until I can play again.
As I find it very interesting to see people's craft spaces, I'll be nosy when I get home from work and check out all the WOYWW posts then.
