Weekend workshop

Good morning all,

Happy Sunday!  I am feeling better today, sorry for being miserable last time!  I still have a sore throat, but am feeling a bit more energetic!

On Saturday, Moira and I did our Diva Red workshop, which is always lovely, we have a fab group of ladies attend regularly, the first two cards here are my versions of Moira's cards, both using lovely stamps from Hobby Art

We blended some ink through an aperture to create the shape of the flowers, then stamped the centres in place, I outlined mine with a black pen and added card candi for the centres
I used a fabulous background set round the edges and on the die cut butterflies.
It seemed a shame to waste the ink on my mat, so I spritzed it and picked it up on another piece of card and used that for the backing paper.
I really enjoyed making this one!
We used the bleeding tissue technique (adapted by Moira!!) to make the background for this and to make a piece of card to stamp the flowers on - very pretty!

This card is a slightly different version of one you have seen before....

I will blog separately about this one, I don't want you falling asleep!!

Have a great weekend

  1. Hello Janet! Glad you are feeling brighter today! Love all these cards but the top one is my favourite! Hope you have a nice week! :) xx

  2. Love your cards Janet lovely colours

  3. they're all lovely Janet, but my absolute favourite is the third one. The background stamps worked really well on your cards, would never have thought of using that one on the butterflies though - sorry we didn't manage to hijack them for you yesterday!

  4. Glad to hear you are feeling better. Love all the cards,especially the sentiment on the second one. Bleeding tissue technique !!!!! More explanation required for me.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment - I appreciate and enjoy reading them all xxx
