I think that this year the projects we got to do at the retreat were the best ever, and gave us so much to contemplate and techniques to use again and again. I am sure in the next couple of weeks you will get to see the projects we did. Thank you Barbara, Paul, Becca and Dave for a great retreat. I know its hard work for you all but I do think that you must enjoy it as you seem to want to do it again next year.
I am not sure I will make it to next years retreat.... It will all depend on the dates. That's because a year today our daughter Amy will be getting married! I have a feeling that this coming year will go fast!
The piece of artwork I want to share today is from the shows Maria did back in April but I think it is appropriate after the lovely few days I have just had.
Part of the retreat I enjoy is getting to see people I don't see that often but keep in touch through facebook or blogs. It is so much better to see them face to face and to talk to them for real.
Linda Williams designed these stamps....the dangles collection from Claritystamp...…. and this one went well with the stencils I used here.
I started off by positioning the stencil and brushing pink ink through it and then using a makeup sponge to darken some areas and sharpen the edges.
I then stamped the word and the dangles as shown in the picture. I then coloured the letters and ribbon with pink and purple promarkers, matted it on to a piece of purple card and attached it to a card blank. I added a gem at each corner. And this is the result. I hope you like it.
I must now get on with a few more bits and pieces.
Love and hugs from
