Weekend workshops

;Hello everyone,
Welcome to my new followers, I hope you enjoy visiting!

Last weekend was another busy crafting one: Diva Red on Saturday with Moira and the Sundae Club on Sunday, also with Moira.  We have been getting together with all these ladies for a long time for crafting and chatting.

thses were my cards for the workshops, all using Clarity stamps and stencils

Card number one, we used Jo's bubbles to do the background and keeping the stencil in place, stamped the lovely Roseart swirl through the aperture.
The main image, is done by stamping and masking the versatile urn and Roseart
I also stamped the Roseart round the edge of the base card and did a bit of shading round the edge

The second card, using a fab Gentian stamp, I just embossed the Gentian with white embossing powder onto Kraft card, then coloured in with Distress markers.  I added some 'ground' with a white pen.
The speckled background is chunky white and gold embossing powder, sprinkled on the card, then heated from underneath to stop it all blowing around

The last card is the one from Sunday, Just stamping and colouring, with a bit of masking to make sure the chick is in the egg.

We also made two lovely cards that were Moira's designs, but they would have to be stood up and photographed for best effect, and I don't have that sort of technology, but if you look on Moira's facebook page, she has posted them there.

Thanks very much for visiting,
