This weekend was the Mangawhai Walking Weekend and my hubby and our friends went on a four hour tramp. my knees can't handle the hills so I set myself up on three dinning table for my own private craft Retreat!
I started crafting at 8.45am and was still going good at 2.00pm when they arrived back. got a total of 8 cards done. One for an upcoming DT post and 7 just for fun Cards!
So here the are!
First up is wanted to try out the technique theater Jennifer McGuire did with veramark and Perfect Pearls. I used a very dark blue base. I used an Altenew stamps and then heat embossed the sentiment in white. looking good then I flipped to mark where I wanted to trim, did so and then when I flipped it back, I'd chopped off the last letter of the sentiment! Urrrgh. Here's how I saved it
My next two cards in involved masking and sponging. I die cut a circle with a Simon Says Stamp die and used both the positive and negative parts. The positive circle was temporarily glued to the card and then start pedal with the goose half on and half off. the entire masked the goose and did the sponging.
Entering this one into the Circle challenge at Crafting When We Can.
For this one I sponged through the negative space as a mask
After a quick sandwich I got onto some pencil colouring using Altenew stamps and Faber-Castell pencils and Gamsol.
Next was to use a panel I'd made last week to make a card.
And finally a card I made a card for the Lawn fawn challenge
Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog... I don't have many Lawn Fawn stamps but this one has been in my stash for sometime and never been used! Some more masking of the little clouds and the balloon.
Thanks for staying long enough to reach this point I appreciate it.
Hope your weekend was a good as mine.
