WOYWW - a bit of wood ...

Yes - a piece of wood. Actually its the bit of wood that was used as packaging, supporting six lovely bottles of Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Misty stuff that came free with purchasing a years subscription to Craft Stamper magazine ... yes I finally got around to it! Anyway, I used the chalk mist on the wood and thought it turned out rather pretty, so stamped a couple of Stampotique images using Stazon, did a little bit of painting too ... Its not finished yet as I want to add text and some more texture. And I really neeeeed a harlequin stamp! How come I haven't got a harlequin stamp when I need  one ...!? Gah!! And some turquoise paint too. Actually I can probably raid the kids paint and mix some turquoise, but I still can't use it until I get the right stamp ... so I see a bit of internet browsing in my immediate future!

I had really wanted to show you a lovely little shelf/drawer unit I purchased whilst on holiday last week. Its a charity shop find and the perfect size for displaying and storing my Stampotique stamps and I can't believe how lucky I was to find it! Except I can't take a photo as I havn't got it here to take a photo of (its been left behind at my parents house) ... ah well! It'll have to be featured in a future WOYWW!
