What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #166

Happy Wednesday WOYWWers!  I can’t believe it’s already time for another installment of What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday!  Today you’ll find my desk piled high with lots of new goodies!!!  The pic on top has a couple of Cricut cartridges I’ve won but haven’t played with yet.  I just got done loading them onto my Gypsy, so that comes soon. There’s also a small jar of bleach that I want to try stamping with on dark paper.  I’ve seen it done on other blogs, with tremendous results, so I’m eager to try.

Here’s a new pile of Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads I’ve had fun with lately!  I just received 10 of these FREE in the mail a few days ago from Blitsy!!!  HERE’S THE POST about Blitsy and getting them for free, in case you missed it.  And YES, they DO SHIP INTERNATIONALLY!  Anyway, I’ve been making a swatch guide for the Distress inks, since I haven’t really worked with them much before.  They’re gorgeous!!

Don’t forget to hunt for the WOYWW button/badge if you’re keeping up with that each week.  I didn’t make it too hard this time!

Happy Scrapping!

    Make sure you have a go with the bleaching technique its really fun (if you can stand the smell of the bleach)! I have done it on light coloured card too and that's a good effect. Enjoy your playing!

    That's a great deal on those inks, lol! And the cartridges too for that matter. I'm saving up my Swagbucks Amazon vouchers for a set of Derwent Coloursoft pencils.

  17. LisaDV says:

    I haven't stamped with bleach in forever. I used to like to free hand draw with the clorox pens too. I should play with that again. Thanks for the reminder. Have fun with the TH inks too. LisaDV #86

    Good luck with the bleaching. I didn't have too much success with that, even when I bought special bleachable card from Barbara Grey.

    I've never used a cricut, but they looked good when I saw one being demonstrated at NEC. I use a Silhouette which doesn't take cartridges.

    I have blog candy on offer, so feel free to sign up for a chance to win.

    I'm late getting started this week. I blame it on the Linky snafu. Gotta admit free is the best cost of all. How lucky for you. very impressive.

    BTW, I'm number 22.

  20. 505whimsygirl says:

    I have a few of the TH distress pads and haven't thought of making swatches — how would you use them?

    Lucky you, receiving free goodies!! Speaking of that. Today is my first year anniversary so blog candy will be announced soon. I'm taking a poll so pop on over and leave me your 2 cents!

    Happy WOYWW
