What a mixture of weather we are getting at the moment, sun one minute and the next we are getting hailstones and rain!
Thursday 20th March saw us at the Card Workshop in Chipping Sodbury led by Amy and Carole. Carole's team made a card using a technique she had seen and liked by Sue Wilson, the card I made that night is below:
7" x 7" white base card
1 - white square 6.5" x 6.5"
1 - white square 5" x 5"
1 - white square 4" x 4"
Extra piece of white card for stamping out the flowers
1 - black square card 6.9" x 6.9"
1 - black square card 5.3" x 5.3"
1 - black square card 4.3" x 4.3"
Distress Inks (3 shades)
double sided tape or glue
Spodge the distress inks on to a heat resist craft mat and spritz with water, swirl the card over the inks and ensure that all the white is covered, then use a heat tool dry the card, if you are too impatient to wait for it to air dry. Temporarily layer the squares on to each other using a tiny amount of double sided tape. Using the floral stamp ink up with black archival ink and stamp across all three layers. Gentle take apart the layers then matt on to the black card squares. Don't forget to stamp additional flowers so that they can be layered. Add embellishments and a sentiment as desired.
These instructions were courtesy of Carole and Sue Wilson.
I was really pleased that I finished the card in the session this month. I really enjoyed making it so on Friday saw me make another, with a slight variation. I used a different flower stamp also from Woodware and I used Cosmic Shimmer mist to add a sheen to the background, the sentiment stamp is from Phill Martin.
