Saturday florals...

Good evening all and thanks for looking in.

I have just got home after our regular workshops at CJ Cardcrafts in Edgeley. Stockport. As always it was a fabulous day and oh we did laugh....and Berenice I am posting this tonight...just for you....lol..

We used the fabulous floral stamps designed by Jayne Nestorenko, now you all know just how much I love these.

We started by stamping on black card with VersaMark ink and used detail gold embossing powder.

 

Then using Inka gold , straight from the pot with a little water added. We painted some of the flowers .

Next we added some dark blue for shade

Followed by some silver for highlights.

Then some matting and layering , a couple of butterflies and a few gems .

I do love the shine on this card, and the ladies cards were fabulous....and some great colours...

Our second design was stamped on white card, just to show a different look. This time we used Black Archival ink and clear embossing powder.

Some ink around the edges and some liquid glass to look like water droplets ..

I am so proud of the cards that the ladies made...and it was a special day for Tracie,,,,as it was her last class before her wedding,,,,we all wish her all the best and an amazing day.

This afternoon it was our Groovi class, another great group of ladies....we did miss Vicki though,,,I do hope you feel better soon..

We had a play with coloured parchment....

And did some mixing and matching with plates....I do love to do this...

Thanks for your company ladies,,,and I am looking forward to our next get together as it will be our Christmas party...yah...

Before I go tonight I must just remind you that our Paul is on Hochanda tomorrow with these fabulous Jayne Nestorenko stamps and Groovi plates too...

I am really looking forward to his shows...

Enjoy your evening all, I am going out for a meal with Karl....it is far too long since out last evening out together ....and tomorrow I am having a day off.,.yah...the first one in three weeks...

Take care all, and see you soon

Love and hugs..
