Card and a cuppa

Card and cuppa has been running now for nearly a year and the ladies who come regularly are now really good crafters. This week as the weather was warm I decided we would use the 'Mediterranean Moments' stamp set. However the first card was a bit of a departure from what we normally make. I wanted to try a card with lots of layers and a bit vintage. As my regualr readers will know I love daubing, the card and a cuppa crew have got used to this but today really tested them. Daubing with pale colours is harder, it is subtler, and the control is needed to ensure you don't daub so strongly you rub the paper surface into bumps. Its a classic case of doing a little then sitting back and looking.

The colour scheme was pink (Blushing Bride), crumb cake and a little early expresso.  Every thing was daubed! Plus we tore the edges of the paper we have water-coloured.  This technique was new.

The second card used another stamp from the same set but although also watercoloured this one is clean and crisp. This is achieved with contrasting colour combinations.

All those lovely greens.

And finally some pictures of the group at work and their creations.
