Another Workshop card

Another technique on this Workshop card


Love the layering technique on this card using Designs by Ryn Stencil -  Maidenhair Fern Stencil using Gesso( not much fern showing but it is there! Then Japanese Anemone as the main flower.
Archival Ink in Blue Violet through flower and then Black Versafine on top layer. Added "filling" with lovely small stamps from Crealies

Workshop cards from Eileen's Crafty Zone

A trio of Star cards
Had a guaranteed super day at Eileen's Workshop.

A lovely set of stamps to work with. Maker's name escapes me for now but will pop back and share with when I remember!   ( It's Unity Stamps)
Big and Juicy Ink Pads are great to get shading without much effort.
A nice bit of matt and layering to finish and that's it!

Workshop results using Metallic Gilding polishes

Didn't they do well!

Creative Expressions Metallic Gilding Polishes are so versatile. Also some of these cards were made by Ladies who are quite new to crafting.  They took their other pieces as "homework" to make into their own cards.
 Whether Bold or more subtle the shine adds dimension
Love the latest colours.  Apricot, Dark Cherry, Mint - all sound good enough to eat! ( of course you can't!)
All Dies from Creative Expressions.

Spellbinders Bauble Scene
I like scenes created through an aperture and thought I would give this die an outing.
An assortment of stamps used to create the scene, including Stampscapes, Hobby Art, and VLVS. I embellished with Holly Sprays from Creative Expressions, a computer generated sentiment and a bow. Embossed a square frame on the card blank for added interest.
