SAGS

I have two friends who are new to stamping and want to learn various techniques for making cards.  So once a month we have a little stamping session.  We call ourselves SAGS - Sunday Afternoon Gorgeous Stampers!

This past Sunday I showed them how to use a brayer to ink up an embossing folder.  I had made two cards and had all the bits and bobs ready for them so they could make a card with their embossed/inked background.


 
We used broken china distress ink for making the sky background and were able to do at least two inkings.  After cutting that piece to 5x3.75, we hand cut a piece of white for the snow, added the tree and deer, put it on a card base and done.  On the card with the stag, I used a bit of watercolor to add a shadow.
 
Thanks for stopping by today - love to read your kind comments.
