Catching Up!

Thought I'd show you a few of the bits and bobs I've been doing and not got to post recently. I've been so totally focused on getting the support I need for Liam that I just havn't had the energy to do much more let alone get them on blogger so last night when I couldn't sleep I set about finishing all the projects I'd started.

I started this card at stamping club a few weeks ago. After demonstrating the stamping with felt tips technique  the lovely Helen went off and made a card very similar to this one which I just had to have a go at. Just stamped the Chocolate Baroque Poppy Head after colouring and spraying then brought the colour into the image with a water brush. It's a lovely card, thanks for the idea Helen!

These three are cards I prepared as samples for stamping club last friday but I wasn't well enough to go so Janet had to wing it and do an impromptu lesson. Thanks Clarky - you're a star.

I particularly like the Santa card where I've used the moon part of the stamp to create the spotlight in colour and the rest in grey scale. Will use that idea again!

Right I'm off to play with Stampsmith Stamps for next Fridays Stamping Club.
Bye x

These are lovely cards Michelle, I really like the spotlight technique but it's one that I never think to use.
Hope things get sorted out for Liam x

Lovely cards, really like the Santa card, have just the image for that idea, but need to make some poppy cards for Janet first. Hugs Bee

It's lovely to see you out and about in Blogland again, Michelle. You have been missed!!
I hope you are manaaging to get things sorted out for Liam and Fizz finally and life can return to some sort of normality for you.
These cards are all stunning. I love the spotlight technique but you have showed some more brilliant ways to use it. I feel fully inspired again now.
Take care my friend and sending you big hugs
