WOYWW #63 - No bloomin' bird cages thank goodness!

Oh yes, they are done and will be going out as soon as the last remaining set arrives from Efemera.... so I am sure you will all be relieved to know that there are no Bird Cages whatsoever on my desk!!!!!

And now for something completely different:



My plain old pine Ikea easel has now had the Viva Inca Gold treatment following my purchase of three pots when Alison and I went to Stevenage Stamp Show on Sunday.





An odd angled view of my UK STampers Week 40 rolling challenge tag - it's drying at the moment and so is it's not on the easel.



My pots of Viva Inca Gold, and the corner of a surprise stamp I found (along with quite a few others that had been hidden away after Christmas and I had forgotten about them ..... I know a crime!

As usual, my desk went through a tidy session, and has gradually degenerated over the last day or so....... to see what everyone else has been up to grab a cuppa and head over to the lovely Julia's blog.

Happy Crafting

Hugs

Amanda said...

Hi, love what you have done with the easel, they look so plain in just pine, may need to purchase some of the stuff you used to jazz mine up. Amanda

Doone said...

I just haven't yet managed to bring myself to pay the price for inca gold when I can get the same effect with gum, acylic mica and bronzer - but I know I shall crumble the next time I drive to LB Crafts - justifying the cost by rationalising the need to cover fuel costs.....

He, he isn't it fun to find a surprise stamp - I have put away a few Christmas ones I bought last year - I don't have a clue what they are but it will be fun when I open the Xmas stamp box and find them! Love your tag - very nice!
Hugs,
Cardarian

love the ruffle on the tag, Inca gold sounds interesting, it looks like it might be the sae as treasure gold, which has been around for years. i have a few pots of treasure gold and it is great stuff.

Never heard of Inka, but our easel is charming. Inka must be on your side of the pond only. I like your tag and a ruffle on the bottom, great.
