Stamping Wednesday!

Well I have finally caught up with all the washing, cleaning, tidying and e-mails since returning from Somerset, but unfortunately I seem to be catching Alex's cold.  The poor little thing still has a nasty cough and if anything it has got worse not better.  He is quite happy despite it, but rather tired as he is unable to sleep well at night.
For this weeks WOYWW I am showing you my desk in the midst of making a card which is using nestability cut shapes and torn scraps for masking and various inks to make a background on which I intend to stamp some silhouettes.  You can see the scraps of paper, ink pads and sponges I am using to make the background, the start of the card (hills are there), a couple of nestabilities hiding under the ink pads, my old broken camera (it really needs to be thrown away), and my lovely warm mug of tea.
This is the completed card on which I stamped Lavinia stamps.  I am entering this card into the Less is More 'one layer card that has anything with legs on it', Crafty cardmakers 'one layer card', Pollycrafts 'the great outdoors', CCCB 'sun' and MTTC 'bird watcher' challenges. That is all from me for today. Have a great rest of the week everyone,
Love,
Caro

The masked shape of the background is so effective, love the way the ivy & grasses frame the landscape. Pleased that I am not the only one with a messy desk.
Happy Inking
