Stamping Gear Workshop

Hi everyone. What a damp miserable day.  So I thought I would share with you what a great day at Crafty Needs rubber stamping club yesterday.  We also has a special guest who was fantastic and her colouring and stamping abilities are so good and she is only 5 years old.  She even coped with the stamping gear with a little help from her Nanny but insisted she wanted to do most of the techniques on her own.  A true crafter in the making.

Look at her finished card. Amazing! It is not surprising she won her colouring competition at school the other day.
Above is the card which the girls used to make their cards.  The finished card is 8 x 8.  The card on the front was slightly smaller.  The pattern was made using the small circle cog and using two smaller of the stamp designs to achieve the lace effect design.  The shading was achieved by using distress inks. The circle and scalloped black circle was cut using the silhouette. The stamped image is a Nellie stamp and was coloured using flex markers but the dress was coloured using the distress ink, which was placed onto a tile and then used with a paint brush and water.  The flowers and leaves were cut using the Britannia Dies.  A really pretty card, ideal for Mother's day, birthday or a thank you card. Hope you enjoy seeing this card.  We all enjoyed making it.
