Hello! hello! what a nice bright sunny day it is outside shame I'm inside trying my best to get sorted for the coming weekend and what a nightmare it is, headless chicken springs to mind lol! just hope I can fit everything in before I run out of time and in case you think I have gone slightly mad and you would most probably be correct in your assumptions ( I can see you all nodding your heads in agreement) I'm going away very early on Friday morning and it's not a holiday I can assure you, can't really say any more than that as the Powers that Be have instructed me otherwise and I am now unable to discuss the matter any further but maybe I will be able to let you in on the events after my weekend is over, who knows we shall all have to wait and see lol!!!!!!!
Well must get on as my time for preparation is running out and will I be back in time for next weeks class? this is the Question ???
OK for this week anyway we have some bright and zesty colours to use in the form of some new Woodware clear stamps - they are Mini Flowers and I for one are quite taken with them already, NO surprise there then......... Not to mention the LARGE one's that go with them OH! Sorry moving on........
Onto card one.. C5 in size
The background has been created using Distress ink pads and Adirondack Dye based ink pads (Brights) which work well along side the Distress inks (Both being Dye based) I have included a photo of the inks that I used lower down in this post.
The background includes the use of both Clear and White Embossing Powders.
Blending Foam or tools
And you might want to include a rubber glove or two if you really don't want "Inky Fingers"
pardon the pun lol! : )
Die'Sires 6x6 Embossing folder Petite Dot
Dries Clear glue or Glossy Accents, this is to use with the glitter for the centre of the flowers
I used the Glossy Accents on mine and
they reminded me of Jelly Tots when they had dried Ooopppss! Other sweeties are also available Ha Ha!!
The colours don't look as good in the photo's.
There are four different flowers on the stamp set along with the Hello sentiment.
Card Two -
8x8 this time thought we'd go big as we haven't done a large card for a while.
Again the large background panel has been made with Inks and the stamps, there is a photo of it further down the page to give you a better idea of how it was created.
A very simple design but bold with the colour. The sentiment is also on the stamp set.
If you don't have the same coloured inks then you could mix Shabby Shutters and Mustard Seed with the Tumbled Glass and it should be quite similar to the Citrus Adirondack that I used along with Peacock Feathers.
Picked Raspberry would work but it's just a little darker.
Versamark or Perfect Medium

Why do I get myself into these situations I'll never know???????
