Play Day

Last week in a crafting class at Samual Taylors we had a play day. Pictured above is wax paper put through the cuttlebug in embossing folders and then ironed on to a piece of paper, you have to make sure you iron it well or it wont work. Once ironed let it cool then gently rub over with an ink pad, take a piece of kitchen roll and gently buff the ink to make it smooth. Below is the card we made from one of the finished pieces under the direction of the tutor Liz.

The next things we did as above were different tags. The first is using a paint dabber in a dabbing motion to create texture and then some crackle paint. The second is a mixture of paint dabbers and ink. The third was using crafty notions sprays and distress inks with grunge board. I like the third one best i think.

The other thing i tried out was new versamark inks that are like the watermark pad but in silver and gold. You can see the effect stamped onto the black card. I cant say that i was impressed with them so i don't think i will be buying them. Love the purple paper tho.
