WOYWW Wk 103

This my desk for this week I have a little bit more space to work in! I tidied and swaped things around a little so now my work area is a little wider (not any deeper though)!
Just a couple of tags I am making on there at the moment, the green one LETTERS came about because I was thinking about how long it has been since I sat and wrote a letter to someone, I really can't remember!
The background is Tims craft resist, covered in distress stains and stamped within an inch of its life with script and nibs and inkbottles!
A few pieces of tissue tape, a bottle top and a nib from Tim.
The other tags have been cut from Tims Crowded Attic and are waiting to be attacked!

Sorry about the rubbish photo I took about 10 and this is the best!
I wanted to share because the background is just some scrap paper I put on my desk when I was spraying with Adirondack colourwash sprays and some other sprays, I just added an alphabet stencil and sequin waste, (which I sprayed through too) and a couple of scraps of paper and a birdie!
Well that's me for this week to join in and see some more desks pop over to Julias blog!

3 Tags.

This tags background is the scrap paper I used to protect my desk while I was spraying some other backgrounds, it came out rather nice so I made this tag!
It had a couple of numbers on it (from cleaning a stamp) so I added more! Tissue tape, Tim bingo card, admission ticket and measuring tape oh and some grungeboard letter (painted with gesso, dried and stamped with more numbers) were addedand to finish a cotton ribbon dyed with cosmic shimmer and stamped with even MORE numbers!

This was made with one of the backgrounds I was spraying with cosmic shimmers (blue,purple and a little green) when dried I stamped a Crafty Indiviuals 'Friends' stamp on it and embossed in clear. The girls arm in arm is another CI stamp, I used vintage photo distress ink, dried with a heat gun and blended a little linen and dusty concord around it and added some messy cosmic shimmer blobs and circles. More cotton ribbon dyed with the same shimmer mist.

Silver tape adhered to card, cut into tag and embossed twice with Tims texture fades, alcohol inks in pitch and a purple one dribbled over, some script in the right corner (heat embossed). Man is CI stamped in archival. The book plate is from Tim (comes on the tag die) attached with foam tape.

That's it from me today!
Thanks for looking!
