Gissing Sunday

 A happy afternoon with Moira and Janet at Gissing yesterday - especially so as I hadn't been able to touch my craft stuff since the Clarity workshop last month, due to daughter reclaiming her old bedroom temporarily. There was a benefit in that everything was already packed up and ready to go..........
It took a long time to do the first card, using some of Moira's favourite Hobby Art stamps, as everyone wanted to use the farmhouse stamp, so we had to wait patiently for our turn. I did manage to stamp out loads of penguins while I waited ready for the WI meeting next week, when we will be making Christmas cards, so didn't mind being last in the queue! (thanks for the stamps, Moira).
Everything was stamped with versafine, coloured with a mix of distress inks and watercolour pencils - the sky was brayered with broken china and stormy sky inks, the sprinkled with a mix of glitter and white embossing powder to give a snowy effect , which doesn't really show up on the scan.
Janet's quick card really was just that - same two inks brushed through a circle mask before stamping the Clarity santa and sleigh and the greeting across the circle. Two  snowflake stamps in the corners and on the edges of the base card, and a quick brush of ink round the edges and that was it! There is a little bit of clear glitter on the tree and the snowflakes, which again isn't obvious on the scan.
Just need to sort everything out now and put it all back before I can get back to playing work again....

  2. I like both of these cards Vronnie. Once again you have some great ideas from your friends. I like the first one because I enjoy using Hobby Art and Art Impressions elements to build a scene, but the second one is so clean and subtle in colours. It really catches the eye. Kate x

  3. Glad you enjoyed it Veronica, lovely cards, as always x
