June SERS, roses and ink
A lovely SERS day yesterday. I expected dismal rainy weather, but we got winter sun and cool, crisp air. In the Mount Street room with windows all around, and the heater on, it was quite jolly.
We had Renee come for just the second time. And Marilyn for the first time in ages.
Marilyn's personal challenge was to ink only the raised parts of card that she'd run through a pretty embossing folder. Inking the debossed parts is easy, but her idea required finesse. Here's a picture of the opposite of what she wanted, but still very pretty:
I used that three part rose stamp. Funny, it came out a bit grungy when I did it. The hot tip is, stamp the middle image first .
Cathy brought a very old French magazine shed kept for years. And here's a super inspiring image - I'm just going to leave this here.
