More embossing

This time the heat embossing is on a piece of card which I then used to cut out the flowers and leaves.  It certainly gives them a different look.

Thanks for stopping by.  Mx

New workshop

Looks like Mondays are becoming a no go area for me!!!!  Anyway I did make two cards yesterday for Thursday's workshop after watching Phil Martin on Hochanda!!!!   He is a bit "over the top" but I picked up two long forgotten techniques.

This is the first, heat embossing twice to "pop up" the sentiment.  First saw this at the NEC about 8 years ago.  I'm sure we all learn something new, use it for a while and then abandon it for the next new idea.

Have a wonderful week.  Mx

Flowering fields

The other day whilst browsing on Pinterest I came across this beautiful card and on further investigation I discovered it was made by my friend Elaine.  She has kindly said I can use the idea at a future workshop.

Do check out Elaine's blog at  She is a very creative lady.   
Thanks, Elaine for sharing.   Mx

More "puddling"

My second attempt survived the journey home by being carried flatter!  Probably should have gone for the smaller tiles from the start.

I think I could do something with this one......a large coaster for instance!  Will certainly be having another go.  Thanks for the workshop, Cindy (and the chocolate cake!)

On Sunday Cindy showed Maxine and I how to "puddle"!   It was a very interesting, and messy technique involving acrylic paint, emulsion and silicone spray.
Here is my first attempt.  Unfortunately a lot of the colour 'flowed' off on the journey home!!

The view from my craft room window this is pouring down!

 Have a good week despite the unseasonable weather.
