Time to Play!

Well now that stamp camp is over, I have finally had a bit of time to mount and play with some of the stamps from the new catalogue! Thought you might be interested in what I have been up to…

This first one was actually one I put together before stamp camp. As my colleague Lynda was teaching the brayered sky technique on the day, I thought I should have a go and make sure I could do it too!! Here is my attempt, using the new "Wanted" set from Stampin' Up!.

The next one is using a technique created by a very talented artist called Laura Fredrickson, whose blog "Scrapnextras" I regularly visit. You can check out Laura's blog by clicking here
For this card I wanted to play with the new Stampin' Up! "In colours" for 2008, so I used Wild Wasabi and Blue Bayou together with So Saffron and a touch of Real Red. The stamps were the Star Studded standard wheel and the new Classic Stars jumbo wheel. I thought this would make a nice boy card.

Finally this one is using the new sets Voila and Voila a la carte. As my DH is a chef, I am really familiar with where their whites get dirty when the creative genius is upon them. I wanted to reflect that in my card. I really liked the effect, I did the water colouring with stamp n' write markers and an aqua painter.

Love the "chef" card Claire, but I don't think he is dirty enough!!
