It has been a weird week. Not as manic as last week with all the packing, but still lots of things buzzing in my head about the future.
Just so you know I am still crafting here is a card I made during the demos at Newbury Artstamps
Our next show is Artstamps Wales in Wrexham in early September
just to give you an insight into this card
6" x12" piece of white linen card folded in half to make card base.
Background was created using three shades of glimmer mist on to glossy card stock.
The centre piece is a 2" square stampbord, the background was created with three shades of blue ink from the versacolour range, then some ink lifted by stamping with a clean hessian stamp.
once this is really dry I inked up a clematis tower stamp with veramark and laid the stampbord on to the stamp., then added midnight sparkle embossing powder.
Those who have seen a few of my cards will recognise that is a set of shapes I like to use.
especially the 2" stampbord on a 6" square card. then using square mats. I do get more adventurous but this does work over again, and I was being watched so maybe not the time to try something new.
Unfortunately the glimmer of the background and the shimmer of the glitter card mat do not show up on the photo let alone the midnight sparkle, best seen in the flesh so to speak, Hopefully you will see at a show in the autumn.
In view of a few health worries we are not doing as many shows as we first planned so that means we have dates available for demos and visits to clubs. If you have a craft club, event or shop you think would appreciate a visit from Oak House Studio then email me to see if we can fit a visit in.
