Workshop cards

Good morning,

Thanks for visiting today.  I am a bit sad this morning, we found a very sick little hedgehog in the garden yesterday afternoon and tried to rescue it, but we were too late, it was in a bad way and I don't think taking it to a rescue centre would have helped, it was too far gone.  We got advice from a lady Simon knows who rescues animals, so I will know what to do another time, if we find another one who isn't in quite such a bad way.

I realised I haven't shown the cards from my last Claritystampers East workshop, so here they are...
It was a Christmas workshop, which means I get the glitter out!  (Just a small amount!)


This was the first card.  We inked the Square framework stencil and pressed it to the card to make the frame, then did little scenes in each square.

FOr the second card, we made the background by blending ink through the holly stencil.
On a separate piece of card, apply green paints, allow to dry then stamp the outline holly leaf and cut out.
Stamp some of the berries on red card and cut them out too
Assemble the pieces on the card
Stamp the deer in place and add the greetings which are stamped on a left over piece of the painted card

The third card is simply stamped with permanent ink onto good quality watercolour paper and watercoloured.  I have never known it so quiet while everyone was doing this!

Thanks to the lovely ladies for another fun couple of days and to Veronica who supplied her wonderful cakes even though she didn't come to the workshop!
