Workshop cards

Good morning and happy weekend,
It is looking like it might be a nice sunny day here, the cats are all spending more time outside, which always means it's warming up a bit!

These are the cards we did at the Claritystampers East workshops a while ago - sorry it has taken so long to get them blogged!  All using the lovely Wee Houses and Wee Shops and the Wee Trees and Wee Foliage sets of stamps....

For the first card, I drew a semi-circle template round a saucer and covered the lower portion of the card, then stamped the house in place, covered the house with a mask, then did the sky using the cloud mask from the landscape mask set
Once the sky is done, stamp the trees in place, then remove all the masks.
Cover the sky with the top half of the saucer template and add colour for the grass, then stamp the grasses in place at the front.

We used a brayer to do the sky for the second card, coming in from different angles to leave a shaft of light in the centre

The last card we did is one very much like Barbara has done on her blog, so I suggest you look here to see how it's done.  I just added a border
I have since coloured the houses, but I had a sore thumb at the time we did this and colouring was quite painful!

This one did prove a bit tricky and does require a bit of practice!

It was a lovely couple of days with the ladies from Bawburgh and Great Blakenham, I am busy getting ready for the next workshops next weekend - looking forward to seeing you there ladies..

Have a great weekend!
