Workshop results!

What an enjoyable afternoon on our (mainly) Cardio stamps Workshop

A very productive afternoon stamping away at The Craft Room in Maidstone. The best bit is I get to do it all over  again with more Ladies ( mo men at the moment!) in a couple of weeks time!


Great results from everyone!

Workshop samples

Allhallows Workshop

Inclement weather stopped play at Eileen's Workshop on Saturday so we had "homework" to finish!

Distress Inks, Invisible Image stamps and at home I used Chocolate Baroque Stamps for a similar effect in order to finish my cards.

Chocolate Baroque

Painting my Chocolate Baroque Images

I love painting and have been giving my Gansai Tambi Watercolours an airing. What better way than in conjunction with a Chocolate Baroque image.  The large background stamps work really well as a main image too and with water brush painting can be really quick to make a card! I heat embossed with WOW EP - one of my favourite colour is  Platinum - quite subtle silvery tones but you can see easily for colouring!

Ranger Enamels and Cosmic Pearl GLue for the "pebble" effect

More pebbles sprinkled with glitter and a Chocolate Baroque Butterfly
  stamped onto parchment
Another background stamp with die cut sentiment.
Here are links for the stamps I have used.
