What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday 190...... Doily's!

 Hello everyone & thanks for popping by to too have a peek at what I have been up to this week on the desk! This blog hop is the brainchild of Julia Dunnit & you can find out more about what's going on here over at her blog at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/ Maybe you could join in and let us peek at yours too!
 This week I have gone a bit mad for doily stamps, love them & had a right good time with them too.
 I have embossed with them as well as stamping and even used gilding flakes. Used Distress
Markers & glitter some as well as trying Sakura Stardust pens, been a while since I used those!
 As you can see the gilding flake worked out really quite good, at the middle & edges I 
either did not put enough glue or did not press down evenly enough on the stamp.
 I used Indigo Blu's Flitter Glu and Sweet Poppy's Sunset Red Gilding Flakes.
 I will try more with the flakes love the effect!

 This finished card I used Cosmic Shimmers  True White Embossing powder Distress pens & punched out hearts. Looks a bit folk'y to me?  Anyway hope to show the matching dies with these stamps next week sometime. We still have snow here although its not as cold!  Perfect weather to stay in & keep warm drink Tea, Eat Cake & Craft! :-) Have a crafty week everyone!

What a great desk...I peeked back on the previous post too and your room is so lovely. I know what you mean about re arranging things so you remember to use them!
The gild leafing looks fabulous on the doily. I think it is fine that it goes on lighter and darker...that is the beauty of gilt leaf.

Congratulations on your wedding. Will you move to the US or stsy as is? Sounds exciting!

Off to check out some older posts.

I'm letting people know if you don't feel like/don't have the time to pass the award onto another 5 blogs then don't worry about it, okay? Just accept that you are awesome, alright? Well, your blog is anyways! lol :) No, you are too, or else your blog wouldn't be, right? :)
