Lots of stuff on the desk this week, a pile of UFO's front left and a whole bunch of stamps strewn around. Card-io ones, to have a play with.
I love the cards that are made with their stamps, some gorgeous scenes. Anyhow, I decided that I wanted to practice a bit before committing anything to card. I was going to use an Art Journal for it, then remembered I have plenty of note books around that would do the job. A stack of Adirondack inkpads, a canvas with some ink on ready for another project.
This was the 'desk behind the desk', before I tidied away!
I can't recall the lady's name that does the demo's at craft shows, but she creates some fabulous scenes, using a dry baby wipe to apply the ink with.
EDIT: Thanks to Neet, who told me her name is Wendy.
Just getting a feel for applying the ink, creating landscapes and placing images.
This is another of her techniques, multiple impressions of the same stamp, without re-inking, to create a frame.
Also trying stamps from different sets together.
This one I extended the frame to create an oval.
A few more sheets practice, and I may be ready to give it a go on a card.
There are some more Christmas cards in previous posts, and an Anniversary card for Beloved Hubby, as well as a 'just for fun' Halloween card in the post below.
Still no news on any appointments, I've rung his secretary again yesterday, and she was going to speak to him when he got out of surgery, then call me back today. This is getting on my nerves now, to be honest. Should all have been over and done by now, including the surgery!
