Cards from the weekend

Hello everyone,
It has been a while since I last blogged, sorry about that, but I will post several cards.  Since we last met, I have turned 60!!  I can't believe I have got to be that age, I guess if you keep getting up and going to bed day after day it all just adds up bit by bit and suddenly you are the one at work who has been there the longest, rather than being the young inexperienced one.
We've also had the Beast from the East and we certainly had plenty of snow here, I couldn't get in to work a couple of days and we cancelled the Diva Red workshop as the village where the hall is was snowed under.
We did manage to go ahead with the Claritystampers East workshop on the Sunday which was good.  The snow was still hanging around in patches nearly a week later when we had the Claritystampers East workshop in Bawburgh, but travel was back to normal by then.

Here are the cards we made:

Using the Art Nouveau stamps and Abstract Squares stencil and coloured with promarkers

 We made the background by cutting a plastic bag so it folds like a book. then squished and spritzed ink on one side, then folded the other side over and moved the ink around, then opened it up and pressed the card over the top.  Spritz and move the ink around again (without re-inking) to get onother background.  We had to leave the card to dry.  I think there were some people there who could have spent all day just doing that!
Once dry, stamp and colour the main image and add the stencil design round the edge

The last card looks simple, but it took a while!  It is a repeat of the sample card I made and blogged earlier.

It was lovely to see people again, we had had quite a long break, so it was great to see everyone again and catch up with our crafting!

I won't leave it so long till I blog again,
Thanks for visiting and see you again soon,
