Crafty Individuals Workshop

A quick post from me today to show some of the cards made at my first Crafty Individuals workshop last week. My local craft shop, The Art of Craft, now has these stamps as a stock item and over the summer I will be doing three cards using different designs.
We used the masking technique to put together a trio of ladies, the wrinkle free distress technique for the backgrounds, the water stamping technique and used crackle paint on the flourishes.

As you can see the ladies did a magnificent job in creating these and loved the outcomes. The workshop was overbooked so I will be repeating it again this week.

Here is my sample card.
Thank you to everyone for the good wishes you have sent me on the opening of the new ‘Crafts-Too Challenge You’ blog, it really is an exciting adventure.
And just to finish off here is Ken and I on Saturday at the Isle of Wight Festival, freezing, but sunny and dry.
Look I had to go and buy a hat cos I was soooo cold lol.

Headliners for me were - The Killers (they did an amazing show), Emili Sande, Jake Bugg, Ian Hunter and The Rant Band, Steve Harkey and Cockney Rebel, Newton Faulkner, The Boomtown Rats (never liked them particularly in the 80's but they did a good set here), Paloma Faith and The Script.

I hope you are having a good week whatever you are doing and if you haven’t already please do pop over to -
