So much to share and so little time.
I cant believe that at one stage I was posting every day, now it seems to be about once month, if that.
I have drafted several posts as I have been standing at the till - not while I'm serving I hasten to add, although ideas do suddenly pop into my head. The trouble is that when I get home I never seem to find the time to actually type them up, and then the moment has passed and its back to square one lol.
Perhaps I will just have to post pictures and not write anything so that I can share all the cards that I have made recently.
Splitcoast Stampers website. It is just fantastic for ideas, so do check it out.
I always try to make sure that the ladies on the class can buy the items that we use in the store afterwards if they want to, and so as pearl acrylic paint was not sold I improvised with glue mixed with mica accent powders. The background on this first card has been made by applying glue to black glossy card stock using cling film. Please check out the Splitcoast Stampers tutorial for step by step instructions.
Once the glue had dried I then applied dry mica accent powders to it before stamping and embossing the poppy image on top. This was then coloured using the accent powders which had this time been turned into a paint.
The cards are very similar because for once I decided to restrict the number of stamps that the girls could play with.
Jenny gave it to me to make samples for her last TV show at the beginning of November, and I felt that it fitted the class perfectly.
I will try and post some more of the card samples using this stamp but for now I must get back to work.
I have samples to make for Barbara for her show next Sunday, and Jenny will be on the box the day after so it is busy busy.
I have been having a short break while I watch some episodes of Merlin with the grandchildren, but as I will be travelling to Peterboro again on Wednesday and the samples must be delivered before I go I fear that must get back to my desk.
I hope that you have had a good weekend with your families.
Love and hugs
