Woodware One Day Special continues on Hochanda today

Hi Bloggers.

Jane Gill is continuing with the Woodware One Day Special on Hochanda today with shows at 9am, 1pm and 5pm. I hope you can tune in - I know I will. Really looking forward to seeing more of her fabulous techniques.

Here's today's card -

I started by creating my scribble PVA technique (a great Sue Wilson Technique). I trailed CS 3D Accents (formally known as PVA) in White Pearl, Black Pearl and Decadent Wine over a piece of Coconut White Card and put aside to dry (overnight). Once dry, I trimmed and edged with CS Decadent Wine Colour Cloud using a Smoothie and matted onto Black Card.

For the background, I used a couple of the small stamps from the Woodware Mildred Stamp Set and stamped them using Decadent Wine and Plum Cobbler Colour Clouds, applying the ink with Smoothies. I inked around the edges with Decadent Wine then matted onto Black Card and Coconut White Card.

I stamped the main image from the Mildred Stamp Set using Versafine Ink. I coloured in using Decadent Wine and Plum Cobbler Colour Clouds using a Water Brush (always dab some ink onto a Craft Sheet or into a palette, never take a brush to your ink). I cut the flower out using scissors.

I cut a die from Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares. At the emboss stage, I added the Grid Mask. I removed the mask but left the die in place and inked through the die with Decadent Wine. I cut a mat out of Black Card using the next sized die in Sue's Double Pierced Squares Set B.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Five in a Row Stamp Set using Versafine Ink. I cut it out using die #2 from Sue's Indonesian Background and inked through the die with Decadent Wine. I cut a mat out of Black Card using die #2 from Sue's Sumatra Die Set.

I completed my card by adding some dots of Decadent Wine 3D Accents.

  8. Loved your cards yesterday evening - such simple techniques which I'll have a go at to build up my stock of cards.
    This is a pretty card too. I tried the pva swirl technique on one of your workshops but mine looked nowhere as good as this! Must retry. Think the top coming off the bottle rather put me off!
