I've joined a paperartsy swap ( where I have to use a set pack of stamps to make four 5 1/2" square pages. The pages have to be fairly flat so that other people can work on the back of the pages. Cath and Lynne were having a good laugh at the difficult challenge and also helping me with some ideas. This is the first mock up I've made. I like the flower idea but think it needs some darker colours for contrast. The squiggly ink stamp sets are lovely, but this is not one I would have chosen, so it's a real think outside the box experience.
Please share any ideas you have for using this set. I like a challenge and this is certainly challenging.
After a bowl of the most amazing fat and crispy chips I enjoyed Lynne's workshop where I enjoyed making a cute 3D card.

I really enjoyed the workshops ( and a quick mooch round Cath's shop where I bought some fab distress inks. Was lovely to see so many friends as I haven't found any workshops in sunny Wolverhampton - well it was sunny today!

On Saturday I went to Cath and Lynne's workshop. In the morning I had a lovely time playing with some of the new squiggly ink paperartsy stamps and acetate. The first card has perfect pearls under the acetate.

Sorry Alison I forgot to be noisy!
