Technigues at Craft Class

These cards are just so different and not really me but I do enjoy learning new techniques and well it was a craft class!!

Actually I really enjoyed myself and its back there tonight at the Craft Box and the bonus is its cute!!

We played with the miri card to make it look like metal.

Tim Holts die and letters and the lovely set of male stamps but can't remember the range!!!

The second card we used a piece of tissue paper with glue to get this effect and inked it up before stamping the image.

The acetate is dabbed with Tim's inks and left to dry before we stamped the clock images on and wiped off.

The picture just doesn't show the background that well just can't take a good photo.

Thanks again for all your lovely comments for my Mum she is doing really well but is now really worried as she is waiting for the main operation and is so nervous!!!

Have a great day Love Chanelle xxxxx

Channel these are just the coolest masculine cards. I love the vintage feel to them. It is so hard to make cards for men...yet you make it look easy. I would love to find some classes to go to around here....but I live to far out in the
