WOYWW 153

Hi Everyone
Well I am trying to get organised so that I get my Whats on your workdesk wednesday post up on my blog in time so that it is still wednesday when I do it. So it's tuesday evening and I will write my post and save it, to hopefully post it on my blog before I leave for work at 7am, I am not filled with confidence as I am usually running late, but at least it is a plan, just might not be a good one..... time will tell.
Anyway yesterday I did a bit of crafty shopping, even though I didn't intend to buy stamps I purchased 2 of Andy Skinners stamp sets "Slideshow" & "Circus" I actually went to get some pan pastels to see what all the fuss is about, I bought a selection of 4 colours to try so will let you know on that one once I have given them a good play with. They are just stacked up on my desk at the moment.


I haven't made a tag for awhile so decided to use the Circus stamps and throw a quick tag together.
I used distress stains to make the background, the rest have all been stamped from the stamp set using distress inks, the elephants with black archival ink and coloured with distress ink. I then punched out the stars and added a touch of bling.


Thanks for looking and I will hopefully get around to visiting many of your desks as I love to see what everybody is upto.
love
Amanda x
