Make & Take Friday 23rd March

The background on this card is made with old book pages.
Rip a couple of pages into small pieces about 50p size and glue on to a piece of white card,
overlapping the pieces, when the card is covered dry it off with a heat gun (not too close)
Now rub a water based dye ink pad over the card and the ink will just pick up on the overlapping bits,
Dry off, now brush over with a darker colour ink,
 I used Distress inks in Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany.
Now take a little Perfect Pearl powder or Cosmic Shimmer powder and mix to a paste with water and just brush randomly over the paper background, this will give it a pearly shade in places.
If you would like to make this card for just £1.50 then come along today or Sunday between 10.30 and 3.30

My Paint Fusion version

I was having a play at Paint Fusion and came up with this flower, I don't know what variety it looks like but I like it. I made some more flowers too so will upload them when I have made them into cards. If you would like to have a go let me know and we can arrange a class.

Make & Take Friday 16th March

There is a choice of 2 cards this week, as you know I have a lot of Irises and Cherry blossoms stamped out so this week we are using them for the cards. The background has been brushed with inks and sprayed with green mica spray and then stamped around the edges.There is space at the bottom to put a greeting.

Club night 13th March

This is the card that I made for club night, we were painting with embossing powders, a chance to use all those powders that you buy and never use.
I first stamped the flower on a piece of white card with an old worn out ink pad so that you can see where to place your colours.
Next I padded all over it with a Versamark ink pad then sprinkled on embossing powders in various colours, I then heated it and then stamped with the same stamp on top of the original image which has disappeared under the embossing powder, using Versafine black and embossed with black powder, I then cut it out and mounted it on to the background paper.
