Good afternoon all and thanks for popping in.
I do hope that you had a lovely weekend.
Everything is ok here , the little man was a dream to look after on Saturday evening and Sunday..
Although I must say that both Karl and I were shattered
And in bed at 8pm last night .
On Saturday it was our Manchester inky workshop..
And we did some stencil play
Just refreshing on some techniques...and generally getting motivated...
Oh and getting our steps in....!!!! Sh...h...h...ladies..
We used the fabulous Pocket Watch stencil from Clarity
Our first tag was made by gently brushing distress ink through the stencil.
Then we went onto some ghosting.
We covered the tag with ink...Distress and/ or Artistry ink
Placed the stencil down and spritzed with water.
After removing the stencil, we dried the tag
And this is what we had
Next we did the negative ghosting effect
So we started off with ink on the tag
And sprayed the back of the stencil with water..
Then placed this wet side down on the tag
Left it for a few moments, removed the stencil and dried.
Look , this is what we had
One positive and one negative.
These are great backgrounds and can easily be made into a tag or a card
Here I used this fab die cut from Craft Stash
It is Bird on a Branch by Apple Blossom.
This is Tracie’s tag...I love her colours .
After lunch we made a card using the stencil
And look at the colours that Susan used ,
I love these
So many possibilities with these backgrounds
We even had time for a bonus tag
A no planning...
Just for fun,
Five minute tag
I did enjoy making this, and I love using staples as accessories,,,
And I couldn’t resist taking this photo to show you Elliot on Saturday evening ,
Ready for bed...
And he slept through until 8-30am...
Today , I am getting orders completed and catching up with washing and ironing .
Wednesday is out Hazel Grove workshops..
See you soon ladies..
Enjoy your afternoon
Love and hugs
