WOYWW #176 - Play Station!

Another Wednesday and another What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday, which means that Julia is hosting yet another desk hop from her blog, The Stamping Ground.

On my ‘Play Station’ this week is a card I’ve just finished which has a boy playing with his PlayStation on the front of it, which is quite apt really and strewed across my table are all the bits and bobs that I’ve used to make it.

There’s nothing very interesting really, a few tools like my Creative Memories cutting system for cutting circles and my Croperdile which turned out to be no good for where I wanted to punch the holes, so I resulted to the good old fashioned way of adding my eyelets, which a hammer.

There’s lots of Promarkers out too but I really need to perfect my technique with these because my shading certainly isn’t up to scratch.

Also out are my newish set of Paula Pascale Birthday Greeting stamps, a couple of ink pads and the My Mind’s Eye ‘Complete Boy’ papers that I’ve been using.

So that’s it for this week, short and sweet for a change, just the way Julia likes it, Lol!

I've shown a few more of the little pillows for the Advent Wall Hanging on my My Sewing Blog  but have noticed that something on yesterday's post about this months TUSAL needs to be altered, so I'm off to do that and then I’ll be back armed with my coffee for a good old snoop.

Happy Crafting!

That's a lovely card Sue, great colours. I'm not good at shading either and I hope to get some Prisma pencils for Christmas so that'll be something else to learn!!
