Classes 10am Friday 22 March and Sunday 24 March

I had a request for male cards this week so here are some masculine cards using the By The Tide stamp from the current seasonal catalogue (wood-mount $48.95 cling-mount $38.95). 

My Dad's a Marine Biologist so I'm sorted for his birthday in October! 

 Various techniques here - shaving cream/reinker background and silver shimmer paint/Isocol (it's supposed to look like the reef)... 

black craft ink pad to emboss (much cleaner than using Staz On) ... 

... and sponging/brayering. 

Usual details:
10am Friday 22 March and 10am Sunday 24 March
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
$20 for 3 cards

Happy birthday to Bridgie for Saturday and hope you're feeling better soon Sof!

Classes Friday 8 March and Sunday 10 March - Easter!

Hi ladies

We're doing Easter cards this week for those who need to send their cards away. 

I have made 2 card samples already  but there will also be a 3rd item - probably a bag of Easter eggs or something. How cool is this suspended balloon card? It uses the Cloudy Day Embossing Folder and Everybunny stamp set - the belly-belt goes around the closed card. 

Usual details:
10am Friday 8 March and 10am Sunday 10 March
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
$20 for 3 items (don't forget your aqua-painter!)
