Happy Sunday to you! I hope you are having a great weekend. It is a bit overcast here today, so a good day for making cards, which is just as well because I have lots to do (as always!!)
Today's cards are the ones we did at this month's workshop at Easton. The ladies make three cards in three hours, so they have to be fairly quick to do. There has to be time to fit in coffee and cake too!
The foliage is the large Holly and Ivy and the small Holly and Ivy stamp coloured using distress inks as watercolours
For the second card, I wanted a more vintage feel, so started with cream linen card and inked using various shades of browns to cover it. Then spritz with water and blot.
Stamp and colour the large Holly and Ivy for the background and a beautiful Celtic Merry Christmas greeting
The final card is made using one of the Stained glass window stencils, this one is the dove window stencil
Attach the stencil to some card, then brush ink through , I also used a make up sponge to get more depth of colour
Create and aperture of the centre of the stencil (the bit you want to glitter) then place that over the stencil and image and sponge some PVA glue through the aperture (You have to keep the stencil in place or you lose the lines!)
Remove the mask and stencil and add glitter
I know my style is fairly simple, but I think this needs a bit more - maybe a gem in each corner?
All stamps and stencils used are from Claritystamp
I hope you like them! Thanks very much for stopping by
