Stamping with markers challenge

I've used the Moxie Fab Stamping with Markers Challenge for this card. I thought I'd make a background for my card with the stamps and markers rather than do the usual coloured in stamp image as the main element on my card. I stamped the rose stamp all over the base card using brown ink so the outlines wouldn't stand out too much then added colour with Promarkers.
I've added tulle and more of the lovely Echo Park For the Record stickers. The boarder sticker is a Crate Paper one and the alphas are Kesi'art.

Cards Update

So I've finished the cards I was playing with yesterday. I made two inspired by two challenges. The first one for the Moxie Fab World paper piecing challenge:

I stamped the images on some lovely new papers from the Echo Park For the Record collection. The background is more of the Echo Park papers and one Pebbles paper, the green dot one. I've added a crochet doily and some tulle for texture. The stickers are Crate paper and Kesi'art.

Next I've made a card for this weeks Daring Cardmakers 'Jonquils and Daffodils' challenge. I went with the yellow side of the challenge and tried to restrict myself to yellow. I've used a mix up of American Crafts and more of the lovely Echo Park papers and Kesi'art stickers.

Work Desk Wednesday

Yep it is a new post!
Been totally bogged down with work lately so I've had zero time for blogging but I'm going to try and contribute some more from now.
I thought I'd get into the blogging again with a 'What's on your work desk Wednesday' post. So here's my desk today:

I'm busy putting some cards together for pleasure and some work ones too. I thought if I mixed up the two it'd make the work ones not seem so much like work and it's working. Ba, I've typed work too much in this post!

I'll update with the card finished I'm working on creating right now. :)

Carry on your work desk snoops over here, http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
