Molly Blooms Workshop

For my final workshop of the week I visited Jobo Crafts in Weston-Super-Mare yesterday for a great workshop with Clare Rowlands who is the mastermind behind the Molly Blooms range of stamps.

Her new Winter Woodland stamps literally came in to the shop on Friday too - not sure if that was good or bad really!!

Anyway, we made 2 cards on the day.  This is the first one:
The image 'Berry Nice Molly' has been stamped, coloured and cut out.  Clare uses Copics to colour her images so it was great to use some of her colour combinations to achieve the effects like the pictures on the front of the stamp packets.

Molly is sitting on 'Pinecone Perch' which was also stamped, coloured and cut into a circle with a few bits of the image having a slight overhang on to the matt behind it.

All the card layers were distressed with Tim Holtz ink and you can see we then used some more frantage on the background picture and die cut tree to create a snow effect.

Finished with a stamped and distressed tag & some buttons etc - and that was just the morning!

For the afternoon card we used the image 'Hattie'.

Coloured in copics again and both cards have a spot of glossy accents here and there for effect.

Similar to the first card the layers were distressed and built up with ribbon, buttons and die cuts - and some great felt snowflakes for this one.

Another sentiment was made in to a tag and then more frantage snow - very much 'thing' of the moment and I love it.

A great day out thanks to the ladies from Jobo Crafts, fellow crafters and Clare who came down from Lancashire in the morning (not a wise decision in hindsight!).

A couple of weeks off from workshops now but a few more to come this year!  Best put all these new ideas to good use in the meantime.

Thanks for popping by.   Jill
