Yesterdays makes,

I really had a lot of fun yesterday. Thank you Kathy for taking the time to come and show me how these things work, It really was great to learn something new and as all crafters know there sure is a lots to learn we never stop learning and to me thats great. Yesterday Kathy and I were having fun with shaving foam. Learned about ghosting and brushos. Also found that you can use shaving Gel instead on foam. I picked up what I though was two cans of shaving foam and one was gel so though ok give it a go and it worked. These are a some of the thing I have done and loved playing. backgrounds photo m_12345678DSCF8536_zpspzovlkef.jpg Tags photo m_12345678DSCF8535_zpsvfp4cyqo.jpg With this one I dropped the ink onto the foam and then thought what if i pull a paint brush though it and this is the affect. brush and ink photo m_12345678DSCF8539_zpsez7wwq0b.jpg

For my Niece.

I have been trying to make this card for a while and today thought I had better get on with it. I was not sure what to put on the card as this is to go with the things my sister May and I have bought for her daughter Sam's baby shower. Then I spotted Tatty Ted with all the parcels and though that's was perfect.

I glued some ribbon on the top and the bottom of the card.

I stamped  the image onto white card with archival Sepia,

I used  pro markers to colour the image,

Next I matted the image into blue card as we know its a boy and trying to stay away from pinks

I have some verses from Lapashe and they are see through and have a sticky back.

Two more tags

Afternoon. Two more tag to share with you today.

I dripped the alcohol ink in water to get this affect. I then dipped the tags in the water and then allowed them to dry.

I used Salty Ocean for the first tag and Salty ocean

and Spiced Marmalade for the second.

The stamps are some that I have had free with magazines over the past year or so.

I love the stamps here. They are clarity stamps. I have to say out of the three cards I like the owl card best, I think myself the other two are far to busy, Any thoughts on that, I used the retiform technique for the back ground on the squirrel and the hedgehog with vintage photo distress ink for the Squirrel and every green bough for the hedgehog. I coloured them with pro markers Tan to colour then in. An assortment o different small stamps for the back ground, on the owl I mate and layered it up with odd scraps of card
