Our Retreat

Well, I'm home but certainly not recovered.
This is one of the projects from our retreat. This one was a collaboration between myself and Vicky.
This one is all Lesley's work.
Both include lots of stamping onto EcoArtboard, acrylic and alcohol inks, using Tranz-It onto Canvas, shrink plastic and Melt Pot Art.
Everyone created such different artwork and this weekend I remembered to take photos, so I apologise if you were on the weekend 2 weeks ago, perhaps you could post up a link to your mirror here so we can all see your wonderful creations.
I will post photos of mirrors from this weekend over the coming days.

More TV Artwork

This is the JudiKins Weeping Willow with China Girl and Bunny Hug - by Vicky.
For this card I used Japanese background, Weeping Willow, Flirty Girl and Nellie Round die. For her parasol I stamped it on black card and coloured with Pearlescent watercolour paints and stuck with foam pads for dimension.

Vicky reproduced this card in the show. Embossing the tree in black onto black card and then giving the card a wash with the Pearlescent watercolour paints. Big Hug was stamped and coloured on white card and then again on black card and the kimono was cut out and layered on top.

The Flower was made from the Nellie punch and emboss sets. The greeting is JudiKins Happy Birthday.
For this card I stamped the Japanese background in Platinum Stazon and the Weeping Willow in Copper Stazon - these new Stazon are really really good. They look fab on acetate and shrink plastic.
