Oyster Stamps Workshop

On the Saturday before I went away I attended a workshop run by Oyster Stamps down in West Wittering with Pam. The demonstrator was Martine Smith, a lovely lady and very talented. 

We made 2 cards during the day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Loved the morning card. The frame is made from Deep Red Vector Flourish Set. I love the black and white cards :-) 

The afternoon card was a bit more complex. The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations dies. They were inked/coloured using inkpads and daubers. Never really got into making flowers and I thought I had messed these up but when they were put together I was quite pleased on how they turned out.

Neither of the cards were finished on the day through choice as I wanted to mount mine onto card blanks and I have also made a box for the flower one.

Although we enjoyed the class there was a lot of sitting around doing nothing (although Pam and I did plenty of chatting) so we will not be doing this one again. A lot for money for 2 cards made that could have been down in a couple of hours. Still you live and learn, done something that I probably wouldn't have done and probably won't again :-).

Thanks for reading
