A crafty weekend

Had a great day on Saturday, attended a local craft fair (or is it fayre?) to sell a few of my cards, it was a bit of a last minute thing as I had enquired about it ages ago but they were full up, anyway after a phone call earlier in the week informing me of a cancellation and a lot of frantic card making - well not really frantic, but a few late nights, I managed to make enough cards to fill a stall

Didn't sell a huge amount but had a nice day and met some nice people, including a lovely lady called Judy who was also selling cards (totally different style to mine though) we had a good old natter and compared notes on local craft shops and craft telly!

Some of these cards you may have seen on earlier blog posts, here's a close up of some of those that you haven't:

Background from a Gelli print and acetate with IndigoBlu stamp embossed on top

Background made with distress inks and stamped, acetate over the top and embossed in white

More Gelli plate background with acetate

Gelli plate background made using a stencil, then used the same stencil on acetate with versamark and embossing powder
Loving this technique at the moment (make fancy backgrounds and add image onto acetate), didn't think the stencil would work with versamark and embossing, but it did, now the possibilities are endless....

The only problem is... not easy to take pictures of acetate. They look better "in the flesh", honest...

Spent Sunday making more cards (on a roll at the moment), was watching the grand prix at the same time, but gave up after Hamilton was out (watching the GP, not card making), and that Vettel bloke won, again.... I'll show those cards at a later date.

Thanks for looking
