PS this is a long post.... like the day was!!!
Whew... what a day. We started at 9.00am this morning and our table looked like this:
Next was to prepare a cover for the Technique's folder we were all given. It involved stamping on cold laminate, turning it over and adding gold leaf and PearlEx powder and then added that to Jac paper and surrounding it with crumpled up and inked tissue paper, mesh,leaves and flowers. Unfortunately the weather turned a bit nasty and I didn't get to go outside and get some photos. Will try again tomorrow or Monday to get some good photos.
Onto the next project- a broach.... under the tuition of Sue. This one involved stamping and shrinky-dink.... I have to admit to failure of one of my pieces :-( It curled up into a ball and nothing would persuade it to behave!! Still got there in the end
Next was a card shaped like a box.... needed accurate cutting of pieces the right way round.... luckily we were given plenty of patterned paper- ( photo tomorrow or Monday as I haven't quite finished it!!!)
then onto a simple flower card - just lots of layering of the flower... Stamped 5 times and sponged then layered.
Back to Sue for the next card - one using strips of card and a hot glue gun!!! We made our own patterned card by stamping on green and cream card with gold and red and green inks... cut into strips. Once the strips were all put together we used a hot glue gun to make patterns on the card. Once they were dry, we rubbed metallic paste onto the glue. Very effective
So you can see that it was really a full on day - tomorrow 9.00 until 4.00pm... so will be one tired but happy stamper!!!
Thanks for taking the time to view this...
Cheers and happy stamping.....
PS- forgot to say I arrived home to TWO parcels... stamps and inks ordered this week!!! so even more fun for next week..new stamps to play with!!!! .(together with new stuff from camp)
