While I was in Abu Dhabi, I really enjoyed running my card making class...
I am just beginning to share techniques and show people how to make simple cards here!

Last week I showed Wendy how to use my Big Shot using a thin die to make an owl card -
 you may remember my ATC:

And My set of owls arrived in the UK:

Yesterday I showed Ritu a few techniques:
  1. Brushless watercolour.
  2. Watercolouring a stamped image.
  3. Wrinkle free distress.
In each case we used Distress inks in a variety of colours.

Here an Inkadinkadoo stamp is inked up and then misted with water.
 It is stamped onto watercolour paper.
I will submit this card to Panpastels as I would love to win some gorgeous stash!

Distress ink was smeared onto the non-stick mat and spritzed with water. It was then used as paint with a brush. The image (freebie from Get Stamping! magazine)
 was stamped with Versafine onto watercolour paper.

 Finally the excess ink was blotted onto cardstock for use as a background in a future project.
