I will have full information on the planned workshops tomorrow but I can confirm that we have 2 days in the North planned for November!
Back to today and I thought I would share another winter / Christmas card made with my new range. I have again used some waste in this card as I really don't like throwing anything away!
I started by putting the ultramarine izink onto the rectangular media plate and ran my brayer over the surface to fade the colour form dark to light. Next I used the bubbles stamp and the snowflake stamp from my Summer Flowers and Winter trees clear stamp sets and stamped these onto the plate in Night, Ultramarine and Can izink die ink pads. I kept the patterns just at the top so that it looks like its a snowy scene.
Next I stamped this onto the paper and added the tree stamped directly onto the paper (using my Press to Impress stamp platform) I tore a piece of card in a wave and used this as a mask to add the layers of snow at the base using the mini blender tool from Crafts too and the ultramarine ink ( that's one of the things I love about this ink It works for stamping and blending!)
To make up the card I again used a piece of card that I had cleaned my brayer on ( just running the brayer over scrap card after running it over the media plate) I stared the snowflake stamp over this using the same three colours of ink and cut this to a panel. I added a thin dark blue mat around the main image and the side panel. Finally, before adding to a small 5" x 5" card blank, I added a random die cut form my box of precept bits shaded with the blending tool and the night ink pad.
