WFC 19 - Sketch Challenge

Just squeaking in under the wire to enter the current Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge. Deborah and Tara chose this sketch:

Here is my card. A collage of bits and pieces. I am not sure what I will use it for so I will leave the inside blank until I decide.
I popped up the entire white panel with foam tape on a green Bazzill Basic Paper base which is not noticeable, but in real life seems to give it a little more presence.

WOYWW and Organization

In a quest to use more of what I have, I decided recently that unless my Distress Ink Blending Foams were out on my desk along with the ink pads, I was not going to reach for them like I should. I have slowly been collecting the handles to put in the Ranger Inksentials Craft Spinner three tier metal storage stand. I add the handles to mail orders or buy them with coupons.

Here is my desk with the organization project. I decided that until I own handles for every ink colour (ha - not going to happen), I would at least load the ones I have with foams for all the colour families on the colour wheel. I have this great Quilter's Colour Wheel from my old quilting days that served as a guide, with the neutral Antique Linen in the center. 

The first two tiers are full on the spinning rack. The Ranger website has labels for the Distress Inks that I printed out and stuck to the wood bases.

My Distress Inks are on a plastic Lazy Suzan spinning base and sit next to the rack of handles. There is room in the middle for a bottle of Perfect Paper Adhesive.

I may buy another extension for the handle rack - I get them from the Frantic Stamper - if tier three gets filled up. Each tier holds 8 handles. I used to only have three handles and would switch foams out but all that peeling off of the Velcro takes a toll on them and slows down the creativity.

So that's what's on my workdesk this Wednesday. Go to the Stamping Ground to share your desk and see others.
