Cards from Stampendous/IW show on Wednesday
Did you manage to watch the show? It was really busy on Wednesday with craft shows on both Ideal World and Create and Craft at the same time, in fact I have never been there when it has been SO busy. I do marvel at how they do so many shows back to back like that!! It was also great to catch up with the guests that were around that day too.
I didn't get to show everything in the show - what's new - so I'll show the cards and other info here.
As it is Father's Day today I thought I would start with this card featuring the Stampendous Perfectly Clear stamp set Railway (SSC1139)
I'll be adding this card to our Time/Travel themed challenge as it is appropriate for that. This challenge started on Friday so there is still time for you to join in too.
I have been asked about the square stud brads I used, they are from Woodware and are available in brass, copper, silver and pewter. There are 3 sizes in the packs, 36 brads in total. I used the largest (above) and the smallest (below). They are great for vintage cards and altered projects.
For the Frantage steam effect for the train I mainly used shabby white, aged ivory, aged aqua embossing enamels with a few bits of aged black and silver that I sprinkled in with my fingers, just tiny pinches. I also added some glitter glass.
I sprayed coffee for the background and added colour with chalks. I am really enjoying using chalks again they add such soft and subtle colour and blend really well even on the coffee background. The spray bottles I used are HERE.
The Father greeting I added is from Woodware Stamps - Clear Magic - FRCL079 - Male Relatives
I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday
Thanks for visiting!
