WOYWW and the trials of colour matching!

This is my desk yesterday. Not changed as I had a class yesterday afternoon

On the right you can see a selection of 12x 12  papers, getting ready for my class. I then needed to find a contrast paper for each, toning ribbon and card. If you've ever sat and spent ages matching up colours for a card, multiply this x 16, and you'll have some idea of how long this process can take when prepping a class! LOL! And this is what we made.......

The envelope is folded from one 12 x 12 sheet into a DL sized envelope with 2 outer flap envelope openings and 1 inner 'secret' compartment.......

and we made 3 tag cards with stamped panels to decorate - I was really pleased with the vintage style finished project

So I'm off to hop around crafty desks around the world, where crafters share their desks and inspiration via Julia's woyww page.

Thanks for stopping by
