Home from home...

Good evening all, a quick post from me tonight. I have just got home after workshops at Hazel Grove...

As always it was so good to spent time with this lovely bunch of ladies...we do craft but we also laugh and most importantly help each other...be it with a hug, some kind words or deeds...( and even have special puppy hugs....from Rachel's new puppy....)

We played with PanPastels today and revisited their uses....the first card used the resist technique whereby the card is stamped with VersaMark ink and then rubbed over with PanPastel...

We made a tri-fold card...this was the front,

 

This the inside,

And this the back....

I didn't even have to crack the whip today ,,,,they all made fantastic cards...In fact it was hard to choose the top of the class.....

This was our second card....some stamping and masking.....the background was created with PanPastels and then the colour was added to the cottage and fence using Spectrum Noir pencils...

 

 

The little faux gems are drops of liquid pearls...I am really using these a lot recently...

All the stamps are from Clarity....I do think the second card could easily be adapted to make a quick Christmas card...if I dare manage the C word...

I hope the weather is o.k. For you , we have had hailstones on and off today....and at the moment they are bashing at the patio door..poor Tess is not impressed...it is also very windy....poor Karl is on a flight back from Italy...mmmmm I think it may be a bit bumpy up there....

Thanks for popping in today.....I must go and get on with some food....

Take care and call back soon...

Hugs..

Jo. X

  1. Beautiful cards, love the versamark stamping. Sitting here in the warm with Phoebe snoring beside me! No snow yet, not sure about the weekend though. Certainly wouldn't want to be flying might be a bit rough on landing. Xx

  2. Two very different but equally fab cards. I like the effects obtained with the pan pastels. Elizabeth
