Christmas Workshop 1st card

Here is the first card that I have made for the Christmas in August workshop.

Men's workshop - August 2012

Here are 4 cards from the Men's workshop in August.

Brayered Tissue Paper

Brayered Tissue paper.
For this weeks Club night we have brayered a piece of tissue paper using water based inks, I used Big n Juicy,
then scrunch it up and undo it but do not flatten it, take a piece of white card and spray it with water or I like to use my gold mica spray. Now place the tissue paper ink side down n to the wet card and brayer, now remove the tissue and dry it with a heat gun and stick it on to another piece of white card leaving the creases in the surface. The 2 pieces of card are now ready to use.

This is my sample
  Below are cards that were made by others attending our club night.

Metal Embossing workshop

Here are 5 cards from the Metal Embossing workshop, on 2 of the cards I used a thinner metal and put it through the Cuttlebug machine in an embossing folder and the other 3 I used a thicker metal and could push it out using ball tools.

Make & Take Friday 10th Aug

I thought we would have a go at putting serviettes on cards this week.
I use cling film to stick the serviette to white card by laying the cling film on to a piece of white card then lay the top layer of the serviette on top then a single layer of the serviette backing, then iron it with a hot iron
