Workshop with Claudia
This is the card I made at the fantastic workshop we had with Claudia at Sir Stampalot on Sunday. I had a fantastic day with all the girls, lots of fun and it was great to finally meet Claudia in person. I`ve been an admirer of her work for a number of years and I hope I`ve done her card justice.
I don`t use copics so I`ve coloured my image with Distress inks and tried to match Claudia`s colour scheme as closely as possible. You can see Claudia`s Beautiful original on her fabulous blog "Pretty Pressings" (on my side bar).
This is the first piece of serious crafting I have done in ages, as my mojo up and went AWOL on me. But, thanks to Claudia and Janice and Andy at Sir Stampalot and all my lovely inspirational crafting friends, I have found it again, given it a reprimand and it`s firmly back at base camp!! ( I can`t guarantee it won`t desert me again but I`ll try not to let it !)
I have never put so many layers on a card before, it makes me truly realize just how much work Claudia must put into all her cards. We didn`t have time to finish the card in the class so I finished mine at home and it took me ages ! Claudia really is a very talented lady and such a lovely person too, I thoroughly enjoyed her class and hope she comes over again to do some more for us in the future.
Janice has given me some stamps to do some samples for the shop so that will give me something else to get my teeth into and hopefully keep my mojo fully occupied!! and I`ve got some lovley new stamps to play with, one which was a birthday prezzie from my friend Louise so I`ll be busy for a while yet.
Thanks for looking in and sorry for my bad blogging of late, bye for now and happy crafting xx
