U3A Today!

I'm just packing up to do a class for my fiends U3A Craft group. We are making a twisted easel card, a straight easel card  and a stamped background card. All using Stampin' Up products which are carrying over in the new catalogue. (Apart from the deco-label dies)

Here are the cards we are making:






















I'm also preparing for another class tomorrow where I shall be showcasing the new in colours! They are lovely!

Water Colour Spritz Technique.

My first video.

Well, having finally got around to it, it wasn't as hard as I thought. Within a day I've recorded it, edited it and uploaded it! I've surprised myself.
I think I have a few improvements to make, but I feel the points that need to be made are made.

The video shows a great technique for making ink spread with a water spritz. I made swaps using this technique for a Stampin' Up regional training day in Peterborough. Lots of fellow demos asked how I had done it, this spurred me on to get a video done.

This is the card I made for swaps.




Here is the video of how I made it.

My husband made me watch it on the telly, I was surprised at how good the picture was, not as bad as I had expected.

Here is another card made using the same technique and the same stamp set, Flowering Fields.




I really do like this technique, I hope you give it a try, please feel free to comment below and link to your result if you do have a go.
Many thanks for reading

Playing with water.

I'm being a bit artistic and experimenting with water colour techniques. 
These were a couple of samples of a new stamp set available called Birthday Blooms. 
I'm liking the effect but Hannah's just told me I should be neater when I colour!
