Ranger Weekend

Hi All

Just a quick post to show you what I got up to on the weekend!

I go to a craft club in Ebbw Vale (Technicrafts) and 6 of us travelled up to Snelston in Derbyshire for a Ranger Technique Workshop Weekend with the lovely Anneliese Bates.

We travelled up in 2 cars on the Friday and got to our B and B which was just across the road from the workshop venue. A beautiful Grade 2 Listed house. Three of the ladies stayed in the main house and the rest of us stayed in the annexe to the side, which was fabulous as it had its own sitting room so we could all get together for a drink (or three!) in the evening.

These were the tags we made on Day 1 - embossing, distress inks, re-inkers, dabbers, Perfect Pearls...

..and these are the tags from Day 2 - alcohol inks, distress stains, perfect pearls mists, colour wash.....

....and then we made an image transfer canvas panel to go on the front of a cotton bag to keep all our tags in. (Not finished yet!)

We were busy!!

Anneliese is a great tutor and we had a lovely time with the other ladies on the course - 11 of us altogether, and it was really great to go with my crafting buddies!

Alpha Tags S and T

Here is the next installment of the Chocolate Baroque Alpha Tag Challenge. 

S for Spooky!

Background is Halloween Digital Download from Chocolate Baroque.

I then stamped and embossed the tree and railings from Howling Moon set trying to keep the cat in sight!

My second tag is

T for Thistle.

I used alcohol inks for the background.
Stamped the Thistle from Wild Meadow set in Archival ink. Added some Purple glitter and a dragonfly charm.

Quick post tonight as got to pack for my Ranger Workshop Weekend!
See you soon,
