WOYWW #98 - A Sneaky Preview

Well, it's a lorra, lorra lorra better this week... I actually have room to do stuff!!! It's not exactly a first, but it IS unusual!!! I am working on a special piece for my new-look challenge blog, DragonsDream, and several other challenges this week... I am having fun with it, and I can show it off later on today... so here is my desk this week - if you are wondering why I am showing it at all, please zoom off on this magical carpet to see Julia's blog, Stamping Ground, to spy on all the other WOYWWiggers - guaranteed fun and inspiration.

 See, I said there was a teency bit of space to work... you will recognise the caged bird, and I have some embossing powders out, ready to cover it...

These are some of the stamps I used for my project ... they were a special offer from Stamp Addicts quite some time ago, and I finally rememered to use them...

 I have inked up and put a coat or two of UTEE on the cage...

 This is the finished thing, having used four different powders, two of TH and two from the Stampman ..

I love this little bird, he is so colourful and textured... he is also part of my project... hope you like it when it's on show, later.. Thanks for looking and I shall hope to see you soon on your own blog and desk, chez Julia...
Love and light
Frankie

Dragon's Dream sounds like my cup of tea - I will have to keep coming back to check it out. I think I'm following you anyway. Love what you have done with the bird and birdcage.
Have a great WOYWW

P.s. For weeks now your comment box seems to dislike me - I have to retry 2 or 3 times ( luckily I am a determined person and when I have something to say - it WILL be said so I keep trying) I presume it's just me it doesn't like!!
Take care
