So - on the 2nd day Lindsay, who has a great blog called the Frugal Crafter, stopped by the booth and asked if she could take videos of both Anne and I doing our little demos for her blog - how cool!! You can check them out on her post here. Mine is the 2nd video on the post and Anne's is the 3rd - you'll see our names as well as 'Rubbernecker'
When I came home - I went into my craft room and immediately made cards like the ones Anne and I made during the show and on the video - and here they are!
This shows the stamp set (Create a Garden Set #1)and techniques (sponging with two colors and making your own multicolor ink pad) I was using. (The dots stamp is from Create A Garden Set #2 that includes clay pots instead of baskets)Cut n Dry Stamp Pad Felt and Ranger Distress Reinkers - so I could stamp my flowers in multicolors. You can also see the negative mask I made to lay over my basket stamping so I could sponge the 2 colors of green on it (Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint). First I sponged the lighter green over the whole basket - then I sponged the darker green along the top - around and down the right side - and across the bottom - leaving a crescent of the light green on the left side to look like a sun spot.
I inked the flower stamp at the 4 corners of Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass and Wild Honey on the pad (top left). For the grasses I inked around the Wild Honey, Brushed Olive and Bundled Sage area.
And here is the card I made using one of the stamp sets Anne was using at the show - Watercolor Poppies #719. It's a two stamp set - there is a solid stamp of the poppies and leaves, and an outline stamp.
Ranger Distress Color Markers. (You could also use inks of course). Next, you mist the stamp with water using a Mini Mister and stamp it on the card. Then you ink the outline stamp in black and stamp it over the colored stamping.
Two lovely cards that work up quite quickly and are sure to impress whomever you send them too!
