WOYWW 199 (Distress Paint Easter Card)

Hi, guys! It is Wednesday, so you know what I will be sharing today: what is on my work desk!  Today you will see that I have a variety of Distress Paints out and decided to use them to make an Easter Card. These paints are reactive with water just like the inks and they are very easy to get off your hands which is a bonus for me as some paints need more elbow grease to remove.





Also on my desk is my new Vagabond machine.  Yes, a new one as my old one went to Vagabond heaven due to my own mistake.  I was working on a lot of cards on Saturday evening and I got tired and distracted and made a wrong sandwich and jammed it very badly, to the point that I destroyed a plate in the process.  I was upset, to put it mildly.  My hubby was wonderful and took me to a few stores in search of a new one on Sunday.   I think to prevent myself from doing this again, I will be putting a curfew on my Vagabond use when it is late at night or when I am tired.  Too expensive a mistake to make again!  


Gosh, I knew I loved the machine, but when it was destroyed, I realized just how much I enjoy it and how much I use it.  So all is right in my stamp studio again!

Thank you, Julia, for this fun challenge!  I can't wait to see what others are working on this week!  I highly recommend you share a snapshot or two of what is on your work desk!  You can join in the fun here! It is a blast!

I wish all my WOYWW visitors a very Happy Easter and Passover!  Until next time!

So I hope you altered the old Vagabon machine, to me the best part of the machine is the suitcase look. :) Thanks for visiting my desk today, waving hi from the hills of North carolina ♥

Glad you have managed to replace your Vagabond. i made a conscious decision not to have one as I felt it would be too easy to damage it. Also, I know at least one friend, whose machine has gone up in smoke through no fault to their own. Please can you send us some of that hot weather to melt our snow - hot being anything above freezing. Have a good week. xx Maggie #17

Oh Winnie, I bet you felt so awful when you broke the machine....it's so easy to do things like that when you're not thinking straight. I have as well, so you're in good company :). How lovely that u got a brand new machine...enjoy it!
I love those bright, fresh greens and yellows on the card...true springtime colours...we really need some of that in the UK at the moment!!
Hugs, LLJ 59 xxxx

Glad you were able to replace your Vagabond so soon - a wise move to ban late night sessions on it!

Love the Easter card, must get round to sorting some out myself.

Aw, may your old Vagabond machine rest in peace. I'm glad your husband took you to get a new one. Your cards are so beautiful. Love the distress ink.

Can your dh come and show mine what he should be doing please. What a treasure you have in that man.
Love your Distress work.

Happy Easter, thanks for your visit.

Sorry to hear about your "vagabond accident" -- bet you're happy to have a new one! Lovely Easter card -- isn't it fun playing with inks?!

Glad you got a new vagabond, always the way that we don't realise how much we need something until we can't use it any more. Thanks for popping by! Take care. Zo 117

I so agree- we don't realise just how vital something is to us, until it breaks! Love the colours on your car, haven't tried the paints yet. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #144 xx
