One layer stamping

Just a quick post from me today.
I am teaching a workshop on one layer stamping in a couple of weeks time and making a couple of cards so I am playing with masking and layering stamps to get back into the swing of things.

An easy one to start me off using the fabulous Chemist set of stamps by Tim Holtz.

I am also experimenting with mixing Prismacolour and water colour pencils to se what effects I can achieve. Mmm starting to like what is happening with the colours, must try this out more.

I hope your week is going well. On Monday I had lunch with Nikki Acton from Addicted to Art and A Vintage Journey teamie, we also mooched around the shops in Camberley before having a coffee before we went home. Lovely to catch up with you Nikki.

Off to the Art of Craft today teaching a workshop using the lovely Graphic 45 papers.

Hope your week is going well.
