Not posted for a while seem to have been busy with one thing and another. This is a card I made recently using a technique called Marker Wash which I aquirred from a newsletter by Technique Junkies. I joined a group called Technique Junkies and will get a newsletter from them every other month giving about 13 different techniques. Not shown onthe card is some beading I put along the spine of the cards

Friday 26th October, 2007

Thought I'd create myself a blog, mainly to record the work I do in stamping and other things I intend to do. I'd like to record the progress I am making in my search of my ancestors. Just wish there where more hours in the day, this business of getting older seems to sap the energy out of me and I don't get as much done as I used to. Seem to spend an awful lot of time thinking about what I'd like to do and never getting around to doing it.
I'm a sort of long time member of a group called Katies Corner, it's a rubber stamping group and we chat about what we are doing and swap cards and things, I've just sent off 26 tags for a swap to Cath the moderator she will gather all the various tags together and make a tag book with them. I love the group it is very supportive and I've made loads of friends through it.
Yesterday I joined Technique Junkies which is a American based group, it produces a hard copy of techniques every month and this is sent to the members on alternative months. I was able to access the techniques for October after I joined and am much impressed and even tried one of the techniques last night. It was a background done on dark card which was sprayed with rubbing alchohol then sprinkled with 2 colours of mica powders, then sprayed with alchohol again then dabbed with a pouncing action with scrunched up cellophane wrap. It gives a lovely effect and I intend to make a card with what I did tonight - so watch this space.
