Popcorn times two

What a great day yesterday at Crafts u love 3rd Birthday.

I managed to shake off my pink curly tale (Swine Flu) I dont think I had it but everyone else did, it was just a bad cold.
I made a miraculous recovery just in time to go on a class or two with the talented Kim Piggott, I will show the cards later. I came away with some of the new Sarah Kay stamps and a few other bits.

Don't you just love the Popcorn the bear stamps and not forgetting little Souffle the duck. I decided to go back to reliable watercolour pencils. Fiskars punch border, Stamping up message with coordinating punches and Bo Bunny paper.

This was achieved by my lesson learnt with Kim, on distress inks and brushing them out with water to tone down shades. Watercolour paper, Basic grey paper, cardstock various shades of Tim Holtz distress inks used to get the brown for the bear as I could not decide which one to used I mixed them all together( frayed burlap, brushed corduroy and antique linen..... other colours used were mustard seed, spiced marmalade, shabby shutters. I aged the edge with the antique linen.
