Another great workshop yesteday up at Creative Expressions. My next workshop up there is a Chalk Clouds Masterclass on Wednesday 6th September - you can book via my website here. My next workshop is this Saturday just outside Milton Keynes. Today is the last day that I can accept bookings as I'm cutting kits today. You can book here.
Here's today's card -
Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide onto my Craft Sheet. I misted with water and picked the ink up onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I swiped some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide onto my Craft Sheet, misted with water and picked that up onto my card. Finally, I swiped some Fossilized Amber Distress Ink onto my Craft Sheet, misted it with water and added it to my card.
Once dry, I dusted with Anti-Staic Pad. I stamped the Woodware Bold Blooms : Charlotte using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured in using the same 3 Oxides by swiping more colour onto my Craft Sheet and picking the colour up with a Water Brush (any remaining ink, I picked up onto another piece of card for another project 😊).
I trimmed my piece and edged with Worn Lipstick Oxide using a Smoothie. I matted onto Antique Gold Pearl Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.
