My First WOYWW of 2011


Hello everyone & welcome to my first Whats on your workdesk wednesday of the year. As you can see I have been havinga a mess with some new bits n bobs I aquired in the sale at The Range. I have not used anything from the Lawrence Llywellen Bowen range from Do Crafts before. I made up some of the decoupage sheets and ended up using this one for a card. Its was easy to layer up as they are the pop out version of decoupage instead of cutting out, which I cant do! I had to have a giggle to myself when I had made this as I think the cherubs faces look like little old men! The one on the left looks a bit crosseyed too! Anyway I went a bit over the top with the gems as I though it ended up looking a bit Regal after I had added the crown! The backing paper was from DCWV Luxery Stack. I finished off with Peel offs & some Glitter.
Also on my desk as you can see are a sheet of stamped crowns. I was testing out some new ink pads I added to my stash. I hope you dont find too many spelling errors in this post as for some reason blogger wont let me spell check it! Had a few gremlins this past week here and there as I am still changing over from my old laptop to my new one, which has not been glitch free! To say I feel like throwing them both through a window would NOT be out of the question! ARGH!!! :) Keep well everyone & hope your all flu free! Its rife here where i live at the moment. Keeping away from most of my frainds as I have Asthma and really dont want to get it!

Oh I say, we have gone rather regal and grand haven't we?!!! I see what you mean about the cherub faces - they're a bit Benjamin Button!!!

I particularly like the little tassle with the ribbon, that's well cute.

Since I wrote my post, I just saw another set of Tim Holtz dies which are mostly a bit pants. Although I will have to buy the mini rosette die - just to match the original one which I got over Christmas! any excuse!

You should keep yourself dosed up on vitamin C & stuff, help keep the flu lurgy away :)

Very busy desk Lavinia, those crowns would make a great colour chart!! Love the card, and yes, those cherubs look more like grumpy old men than cherubs! Love the new blog look too, looks very Waterhouse to me!!

WOW lots of fun things on your work desk this week! What a beautiful card...very elegant. I am always covered with ink I am such a sloppy stamper. Thanks for sharing with us.

Kezzy said...

So many goodies to look at, you have just reminded me that I have the stamps of his so I might get them out. The card is fantastic I love it. Hope your laptop starts playing nice lol

Like what you did with the LLB stuff - haven't seen it used so effectively I must say. The sheet of crowns looks like a great background - I didn't register it as an ink pad test!
