Hi everyone…

It has been a busy weekend for me, on Saturday I attended a workshop at Stampers Grove where we learned all about Stampendous Fran~tage Products, and if you follow me on Instagram, you will have no doubt seen all my experiments ๐Ÿ™‚

When I got home, I headed up to my shed to do my homework for the upcoming Online Card Classes – Watercolor for card makers

I prepared all my colour swatches and did a plaid/checked background… I made mine into a tag!


I used the following supplies:-

  • Clearly Besotted Rounded Tag Die
  • Aquarelle Watercolour Paper
  • Flat Watercolour brush
  • Adirondak Juniper Dye Ink
  • Gorjuss The Fox Stamp Set
  • Distress Markers in Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo
  • Sequins
  • Stampin up Dimensional Adhesive
  • Hemptique Natural Twine

Here are some examples of my colour swatches below…

Adirondak Dye Inks

Derwent Inktense Watercolour pencils

Stampin Up Inks

I think that’s about it from me… I do have one last picture to share with you and it is the gorgeous Fran~tage products that I bought this weekend and one from a couple of weekends ago..


As always, thanks for popping round
