A few weeks ago Vicky and Lesley attended a workshop hosted by Ranger and featuring Tim Holtz, Suze Weinberg and Claudine Helmuth. Above is Vicky's finished article using some of the new Distress inkpads, UTEE and the melt pot, Claudine's paints and many other things. This is on display in our store if you would like to see it.
This month in our project club we made variations on the following cards. I made the above card by firstly stamping the images with White Stazon onto black card. Once dry I then coloured with Polycolour pencils by dipping the pencil into Zest-It and then applying to the image. With the Polycolour pencils you can put down a layer of colour and then build up with other colours and then finally go back to your original light colour to highlight. To finish the card I highlighted parts of the image with a white pen.
Vicky made this card using the same technique as above. Vicky has outlined the entire cat with the white pen.
You might have seen this technique featured in this months Craft Stamper magazine.
Now that Stamperama is over we can concentrate on the Glasgow Hobbycrafts shows. We are leaving on Wednesday so we don't have long.
It will only be Vicky and myself in Glasgow so if you are able stop by and get Vicky a cup of tea I'm sure she would be most grateful (apparently I'm the weird one because I only drink water, absolutely nothing else just water). As there is only the 2 of us we won't be able leave the stand so she might just have to suffer with water all day if no one takes pity on her.
The show is on 4th-7th March in the SECC 9.30am-5pm, our stand is no. B11.
We haven't been up to Scotland for a while so we hope you will come and visit us.
