Mixed Media Plate and Fairies

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How have you all been? It seems like ages since I have blogged. The wedding was brilliant we had such a lovely day. The zoo was such a good location for the wedding. When I have sorted my photos I will do a special blog post about the wedding. The happy couple went home after the wedding. Their honeymoon is in September.

The weekend before the wedding I made it to the Newbury Craft show. It was lovely because we had a good catch up with John Lockwood and he shared some of his plans with us and we saw Sam and some of his new stamps and stencils which you all know about now. He was demonstrating with mixed media plates that he was using with a Stamping Platform. I was impressed and I bought all three of the shapes of plate that were at the show. When you get home is it always difficult to remember what you have seen. Anyway in the week before the wedding I had a play.

Having watched John again on Hochanda I want to have another play. I used distress ink and stamps from my collection. I do seem to have a lot of fairy stamps. I used various stencils from my collection too. Though now I have seen John's stamps and stencils I want those too. All the black stamping was done with black archival ink. The frames were made with the Douvle  

This was the first card I made. 

All the cards were sprayed with Crafter's Companion Pearl Spray and Shine. 

I do want to make some Christmas cards with the mixed media plates. I think they will really speed up my card production. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Hi Jackie
These are gorgeous, I was very tempted by the plates too and the stamping platform, they worked so well together, it's a good thing they sold out! I might have to come round and have a play! Hope this week goes quickly for you.
Love Diane xx
