Recently had a really enjoyable all day workshop with HobbyArt, which involved making a few cards using their stamps.
Ir was good not to have any real challenges but just create some nice cards. I think there were about 24 of us, and so much food was provided throughout the day I think it should be called a "food fest and by they way, make some cards too"!
I'll be providing a menu guide for the day!
We used Kuretake Clean Color brush pens (water based) to colour the images. I've never used these pens before, but I was really impressed how easy they were to blend. Though I don't think I'll be buying any, as I've go sooooo many different types of pens and pencils already ...
On arrival, coffee and biscuits.
I know exactly who I'm going to send this to as a birthday card!
Tea break, with more biscuits!
Stunning bird stamp - with my fantasy colouring! Think I'll call him a pink chaffinch!
A few cone flowers (decoupaged).
Lunchtime! so I opted for an egg and cress sandwich, but it came with a lovely salad and crisps. Then the hot stuff came out (sausage rolls, spring rolls, quiche and more).
Followed by pudding - either apple crumble or fruit salad. I went for the fruit ... but had to include a dollop of clotted cream.
Back to work (!?!).
Tea break - with cake!
Our final card was reasonably simple - which was a good thing, as after all that food my body wanted an afternoon siesta!
The dandelion clock is stamped and embossed onto parchment, and cut out.
Fabulous day, and I have some lovely cards for the next few birthdays.
I wobbled home very content!
