WOYWW 173--Making Backgrounds--Again!

Hi Dreamers!
Wednesday has rolled around and again.  And, it is time to take a look at all the work spaces around the world with Julia at The Stamping Ground.    It is fun to be nosy!  You would be surprised at all the great ideas you can get just by looking at someone's work space.  On my desk is a stack of backgrounds that I made through trial and error.  I was trying for a particular look.  And once I have my Craft Sheet out, and it has lots of left over ink on it,  I might as well grab a few scraps and pick up all that nice ink.  

I was using Walnut Antiquing Solutions in Cornflower and Walnut.  There is also a card that is almost done on the right.  You can see the ones that did not make it to a card in the stack too.  But, I can slice them up for  different projects.  The larger blue piece with the kangi stamped on it also made it to a  card.

Thanks for stopping by to say Hi and having a look at my workdesk Wednesday.  Have a great day.  I have to go get a cup of coffee and troll around and see what is going on!  Love ya.


  1. Your desk certainly looks like a fun spot. Those backgrounds are look great.

  2. I really like your backgrounds and the card you've made in the post before! Do you have those chinese stamp signs and the swirly ones? They're great - here in germany we are a little low on great stuff like yours!
