Isn't it lovely.

I will bring a selection of different card fronts
 so the color choice is yours!

Unique - Saturday April 8, 2017 (Techniques/cards)

Today's class is all about using one stamp in multiple ways.

Winter

Spring

Summer

Fall

Please call Scraps Galore 858 1080 to reserve your spot.

Today's class will be a lesson about masking, 
reverse masking and multiple stamping with the MISTI.
We'll be using this wonderful stamp and die set 
from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

The monochromatic one really didn't give the distinction I was expecting.
I prefer the analogous colors, those next to each other on the color wheel.
Of course the choice is yours!


Please bring your basic class kit
including
black edger
ballpoint glue pen
two colors of distress inks and 
foam blenders
sand eraser

That should do it!
Have a wonderful week,

Today's card is a combination of several card techniques I've recently seen.

applying ink with color dusters or a dry paint brush.
I love the soft application of color and how it fades to the right.
There are so many possibilities!


Please bring your basic class kit
including
5 colors of dye ink
red, yellow,green,blue, purple
I used distress inks.
color duster or paint brush for each color
paint brush should be 1/2" or bigger

Have a great week!
