Easton in November

Morning everyone,
Yet another good day for crafting!
Today's cards are the ones we did at the craft group on Easton on Thursday.  I enjoy these evenings with these lovely ladies.  This was the last meeting until next year, so I thought we could do something a bit different - out with the shaving foam!

 This is the last card we did (save the mess 'til the end!) Using the shaving foam technique to make the background and then use it through a stencil for the main image
 This card is simple to do, the images are stamped with versa mark ink, the embossed with white detail powder.  I then very lightly tapped some versa mark along the bottom edge of the card and sprinkled detailed white, chunky white and a bit of gold embossing powder over it and heated.
I then sprinkled some of the chunky white and gold embossing powder over the top of the card and heated.
It is importnant to remember to heat from underneath as the powder isn't stuck to anything

The last card is done by using two colour inks on the stamp, then stamping on to damp watercolour card to slightly smudge the image I stamped the crackle stamp over the background then inked the edges
For the main image stamp the vase and create an aperture mask from copy paper, then stamp the crackle through the aperutre and add some colour.
Mask the top of the vase and add the lovely Roseart stamp

Thanks to all the ladies who've been to the classes, it's been great fun!
