I have not done much crafting lately as gardening and travelling have got in the way. It was lovely to spend Sunday at the Clarity workshop with Janet Pring at Great Blakenham. I love the abstract stencil we used on the first card, there was lots of cutting out but we made our own ink pads with reinkers for the leaves and the petals. The second card was much easier to to do using the stamp from the first card. The third card was great fun to do. We used shaving cream and the reinkers to obtain the multi coloured background then used the foam to stencil the flower. I took the foam off through the stencil and used a heat gun to dry it. I found it difficult to use a fine liner to outline the leaves and petals as the tip seemed to get coated by the foam remnant on the card. Perhaps a different pen would do a better job.I would like to use this technique again but have more of the background showing as it was so 'pretty'.
