Something different ....

I have been running local card-making workshops in my village for about 10 years now. Unbelievable .. it feels like about 6 months! Over those years we have covered many many different techniques and styles and we have had a lot of messy fun along the way. This week we ae making angel cards using some of my stamps for Stampotique Originals.

Although my usual style is much more mixed-media based, and definitely more messy (see previous post!) I try and cater for a variety of different tastes (and ages!) of my regular workshop go-ers.

Here's a selection of what we'll be up to this weekend. First off, a very clean and simple style using Ranger Texture Paste as part of the background I have to really fight the urge to layer this up with lots of colour! My biggest problem when doing this sort of thing is keeping my finger prints off it!

I gave 'Kate's Angel' some Martha Stewart butterfly wings this time! And went for a simple single colour using Distress Ink.

But needless to say things got a bit more colourful ... Distress Inks and lots of water to make this background, followed by 'Journey Collage' - one of my all-time fave background stamps.

And another background made with Distress Inks. although much more pastel than my usual palette.

It's good to try something different once in a while ... but don't worry, normal service will resume shortly!
