Day 7 Card 1

Not quite sure I am great with the whole markers thing, not sure if it was the jac paper, the zig writers or just my inability to blend very well that makes this card one I am not to happy with in terms of the blending of colours and shading. Interesting technique though not sure it is one I will use again in a hurry.

Day 5 Card 2

Well technically not quite. As this technique was a bit further down the class PDF, I am loving learning new techniques with watercolour paper and Embossing.

Day 6 Card 1

I don’t own any of the stamp and die cut sets at present but I was so inspired by the techniques I just had to try two of the cards. So I used my Brayer with some versamark watermark ink and inked over the top of my butterflies, not quite the same as stamping but I quite liked what I created with the technique. I loved learning how to cut a shape out of the side of a card for this one. Much easier than it sounds btw.

Day 4 Card 2 Graphic Stamps

I loved doing my own Acetate background especially as it gave me a chance to play with A very Deco Looking Buzz and Bloom Stamp Set I have. Love the torn washi tape boarder, I have used it in the past and it gives a kind of funky distressed look with so very little work (has the added benefit of making your washi tape go further as well)

Day 3 Card 1 Masking

Love how many new Ideas and things to do with Alphabet stamps. I am so happy with this card I may well turn it into my Chrissy Card this year. I chose NOEL as my word instead of a Name simply because it was easier and I wanted to play with some Christmas Stamps (you can see how tired I am considering I posted in the wrong order)
