Finally I have finished the card I started in a workshop last week.
We had a couple of days in the Lake District and I always visit The Paper Warehouse near Kendal when we go as it is a lovely shop. Last year I was lucky enough to visit on their Christmas demo day which was superb - whilst checking what was on this year it turned out I was in the area on a day when the lovely Clare Rowlands - creator & designer of Molly Blooms stamps was running a workshop. Obviously I had to go!
Clare gave us this stamped image which combines 2 of her new Christmas designs - the skater & the lamppost. Our pack also had a card with all the paper required to make this fab card.
What also appealed about the workshop was the fact that Clare uses Copic pens. I have coloured the image, used glitter on some of the white areas for Christmas sparkle, added glossy accents on the boots and I loved her use of the little white dots on the girls face and scarf.
A selection of cutting, stamping and 'distressing' with London Fog Memento ink gives this fab card. There is a picture of the inside too!
Clare has also just released a great magazine, worth it for the stamps alone but it also comes with papers, buttons, ribbons and a great stamp set - click 'here' for the link to her blog page about it (& all for £7.99).
I met some lovely ladies too and do visit the shop if you are lucky enough to be in the area.
