Wild Card Wednesday ~ Summer

Wow good morning, Lots to share this Wednesday LOL, like WCW, WOYWW, 2S4Y, Mad for Markers...



For WCW this week the talented Kelly is challenging you to create a project with a summer theme using as much yellow as possible... So I HAD to use Summer from TGF Roll Call Set and I've used plenty of yellow! so fun. I went for a picnic theme really, the gingham fits in so well. I then coloured the pretty Summer using my copics (of course), gave her a little grassy garden and even managed to colour the whole sky background! I've attempted feather blending on her outfit and a little on her hair. Which fits in nicely with the challenge over at Mad for Markers challenge. And in  case you can't see it, I have used Laura's wonderful sketch over at 2Sketches4You. Just budged the ribbon down a little to hold the cute sentiment!


Supplies: Patterned Paper: October Afternoon: fly a kite;
Stamps: The Greeting Farm: Roll Call - Summer + sentiment;
Ink: Memento & archival: black; Copic: markers*; distress ink: old paper; inkessential: white;
Dies: Spellbinder's nestabilties: scallop circles; tags; Fiskars: border punch; MS: punch
Other: Offray: ribbon, adhesive gems; 3D foam;



*Skin: E000, 11, 13 & R20, eyes: G12, Hair: E50, 51, 35, 97 Outfit: R22, 37, Y35, E97, G12, The grass: YG67, 93, G29, Y35 & BG0000 for the Sky and I use my colourless Blender throughout.

What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday

Now, I've been eager to participate in WOYWW for ages... so took the opportunity to snap a quick picture of this desk. OK so it's not my usual desk this is the dinner table but it's so nice to bring things out here and have the wonderful help for my adorable assistant to mount and organise my growing stamp collection.

I like to laminate the image card as the stamp clings so well to the back. Then arrange in a drawer...
Here's Dillon waiting so intently for the laminator to do its job, LOL
Now here they are in there new home organised and tidy, I have a draw just for Anya stamps now as well as one for The Greeting farm LOL (not that I'm addicted or anything ;)
See... I have other stamps too, which I organise pretty much the same way and if I don't have an image card I simply stamp my own!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and hope the middle of your week will be creative and inspiring too, HuGs Kim :)

Gosh! This is really such an organised room, and so many ideas to steal as to what to do and how to organize the stamps. I'm off to the laminater-shop today to buy more sheets so I can laminate more. Isn't the laminater just the coolest thing? I have used mine so much!
Your card is so pretty and sweet and I have joined in your large group of followers.

Kim Awesome. Have just been sorting my now quite elderly wood mounted stamps which take up a LOT of space and the advantages of unmounted show in your pics. Am trying to be restrained with my buying anyway as just don't use them all.Am trying to ignore all the unmounted ones in packets in a plastic box-next job-LOL
