I was really pleased to have some new faces at the workshop today - hope you all enjoyed it! Here are some pics of the cards:
We used distress inks to edge 2 pieces of white card, one with shabby shutters and the other with fired brick. Then the baubles and other images were stamped with the same 2 colours of distress ink. One lady added a purple element by using dusty concord distress ink, and stamping snowflakes ( from the Medallion set 2 A4 stamp set). The "Light of the world" stamp set from PartiCraft is great because the images are designed to fit into the baubles, so there are lots of possible combinations.
Using distress ink like this means you can always get a mat for your cards to match the ink you use for the images. I saw Sue demo these techniques on Create and Craft a while ago.
We used double-sided tape to edge the white card and poured Cosmic Shimmer Aurora glitter onto the tape to give a glittery frame. The layers were stacked up and mounted on a card blank, made from either dark green or red ribbed card.
I'll be demonstrating using this set at the PartiCraft party in Garelochhead tomorrow night, so why not come and join us? Email me using the link on the sidebar.
Don't forget Sue is demonstrating on Create and Craft on Monday at 12pm...it'll be great.
