What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #381

We are back into some semblance of a routine now. My classes start again today and there was actual paper crafting going on at the kitchen table yesterday.

























Testing out the colour combination I had in mind, before making the final sample.

There are three stamps that make up this gorgeous flower. If I were making this card at home I would most likely use the one ink pad. Stamping it in first and second generation shades of colour.

With ten ladies in the class, and three flowers on each card, this is not an option. I don't like anyone having to wait around for too long. More importantly I don't want the person stamping to feel under pressure, with a queue behind her. It's supposed to be fun.

Linking up with Julia and the Deskers this morning. I'll be round to visit, with a nice cup of coffee, this afternoon.

Ooh loving those stamps, Fiona, seeing those layering stamps everywhere. I keep wondering if they're hard to use as folks seem to use them with a Misti. It's too dear downunder. Am sure your ladies will love their class.
Happy WOYWW!!

That is my new favourite stamp set - I love how easy it is to do the layers and it is also a nice easy shape to cut out by hand. Hope your class went well and I look forward to you sharing the finished card
