Convention Swap #1
April 30, 2015
Today I'm having a fab time with other Demonstrators at the South Pacific Convention on the Gold Coast in Queensland. This is the last of our local Conventions as we know them, so I'll be making the most of it. We will be getting the new 2015-16 Annual Catalogue to soak in and take home - woohoo! I will have goodies from Convention to show you next week.
I managed fewer swaps than I did last year. Life just got in the way, if you know what I mean. This is the first one - a masculine card using 'Hardwood' stamped in Basic Gray onto Smoky Slate card stock to frame the duck from the 'Moon Lake' stamp set.
I stamped the duck using Stazon onto water colour paper and coloured it with a combination of ink and Stampin' Write markers. Some parts of the image are too small to water colour so the markers were perfect. You need to make sure that your piece is fully dry before you use your markers and use them last, so there is no opportunity for any bleed. Normally I would use my ink pads, but this time I used reinkers diluted with water, as I needed to colour 20 images.
