After missing last weeks WOYWW (I need to stop working SO late so I have time to craft) I was determined to post today!

So, here is what is on my desk this week. These are the new stamps I bought at the Paperartsy event with 2 matching dies. Even though I don't have a die cutting machine one of the coven let me use their cuttlebug to cut out the dies, both out of paper but also out of some wonderfully thin glove leather, which I then over stamped with stayz on (the bottom middle bird). I think I am going to enjoy playing with these new toys!

This is what was on my WOYWW a few weeks ago, this was a blank I boight some time ago and decided to turn into an Emergency Craft Fund money box for fellow coven member, Becks, birthday.
I gesso'd the box, adding coloured acrylic then stamping on tissue papers, adhering with Modge Podge, adding a dimensional mushroom for additional texture. I distressed the entire box, adding crackle glaze and a couple of coats of varnish for durability.

I love these stamps from Lavina, my hubby bought me them for Christmas and I have been waiting for the perfect project to try them out on.
So, if you fancy having a nose around some other desks, check out Julia's blog, there is a link over on the right.
