all in a days work!


My Mr Brown showed up today with my class order from last week. As always there were lots of lovely new things to stroke and feel. Not all of it was mine so it had to be kept untouched and just admired from afar.

However, a had to get a few bit for myself of course. The new grid paper is amazing, printed both sides with little boxes for notes and wish lists.

Another buy had to be the new in colour ribbons

so lush that I don't want to open it!

Anyway, I'm here to show you the cards that I make to thank the ladies for coming to my class.

I made some textured paste ( equal parts of talc and PVA glue, a squirt of white paint and a touch of water to get it to the thickness you like to work with) and using a stencil from some sequin mesh I made some backgrounds for the cards on whisper white cardstock.

I found a scraper used in baking to spread on the paste

Can't see them too well here but they are drying.

Then with a bit of stamping, daubing and smudging the cards were born.

I hope the ladies like them. They were fun to make using a new skill.

See Something You Fancy?

If you feel like making a gift with a difference I hold classes to teach you how to make a variety of amazing cards and projects.
