This week the challenge on Less is More is to use ink - on a one layer card. Yesterday I went on a workshop with Barbara Gray from Clarity Stamps and learnt to brayer - so what better opportunity than this challenge to try out what I learnt. I decided to use a mask cut with a nestie to do the brayering through, using a big and juicy ink pad. the sentiment is from some docrafts stamps and says "Fishing - if it was easy it would be called catching!"
Here is what I made at Barbara's workshop yesterday. I had a fab time, but it was tiring, poor Barbara, it was her second day and today she is at a show in Stevenage, I don't know how she does it. she is such a lovely lady and she had two excellent tutors with her.
As you can see this was my attempt yesterday at the reflection technique, with and without clouds.
This was my first piece, and the one I like best, we used a resist technique on the sliver birch.
After lunch we did these Christmas cards. Using the reflection again. Then using resist again for the snow in the sky on the last one. I was really tired by this point, so not my best work! I also added the glitz to the roof afterwards, not sure what Barbara would think!
