We have a little late sunshine here today. Very nice.
I did a class with Kim last Saturday at Stampcraft in Purley, and we used the 'resist' technique, using Distress inks and glossy cardstock. So when I got home, I tried it on my own with some Hobby Art stamps - the poppy set. Kim had a good idea, of using peel offs along the bottom of one of her cards, but here I have stamped a poppy image along the bottom. The card is still glossy, so it was hard not to smudge the image. I then added a little bleach, to make the poppies white. I bought a set of dies, which cut out a buckle for ribbon, and have used one of them here. I will attach a greeting when I decide who's getting the card.
I am a dog lover and a crafter and took early retirement after a thirty year career. I now work part time driving school children to and from a school in Surrey. I have been married to my husband Mike for twenty years and we currently live near Epsom in Surrey. I pass my days walking dogs in a voluntary capacity for The Cinnamon Trust, making greeting cards, meeting friends and socialising.
