Well todays been fanstastic going to Amanda Jane Crafts workshop, getting to spend time with friends (old and new) and getting inky using different techniques to create some really beautiful cards.
My Bezzie (Amanda Branston) asked me if I'd like to do a demonstration at her workshop on the foiling technique which I featured in my last blog back in August.
I said I would, well if you're going to throw yourself in at the deep end why not do it amongst friends, although I did make our good friend Pauline Butcher promise no heckling. Lol.
I was a bit shaky at first (it's surprising how nerve wracking it can be when you're stood up front for the first time) but once I got going and got rid of the jitters I was OK.
It's such an easy technique to do and the results are stunning which the ladies all agreed after looking at the samples I'd made.
I did a demonstration using Sweet Poppy Stencils Glossy Black Stencil Medium through the Poppy Circle which seemed fitting it being Remembrance Day. This was then put to one side to air dry.
Next we moved on to the fun part, the foiling using some stencil medium backgrounds that I made last night. This is the part that never ceases to amaze me, the big reveal once it's been through the laminator.
These are the results from the demo that need to be mounted on to cards.
I made a couple of giveaways, the dragonfly card went to Jan and the Chinese Lanterns that I'd just made using Gold Broken Glass foil which went to Sue, this one was fabulous but I didn't manage to get a photo.
Here's a photo taken during the demo of my captive audience.
Thanks for dropping by and feel free to leave me a comment. Hope to see you soon.
