The Wednesday Card Class

Hi Everybody,

These are some cards that I wanted to show you and they have been done by the ladies in my Wednesday Card Class

One week we prepared the modelling paste background for the cards and we then had to leave it to dry until the next weeks class.  So when they came back the following week we got busy and made these cards.

As usual there interpretations are completely different and each has made a card in her own style. From the masks that they chose to use to the colors of the cards is all their individual taste.

The cards on the right are the ones that Brenda has created and she used pretty shades of lilac for one and a vibrant turquoise for the other.




The ones on the left are from Mary and she opted for a very lively orange and yellow for one and a lovely muted gold for the other

Haven't they done well making some very lovely cards

I really like the look of all these cards and the ladies went away happy after that weeks class.  I take photos each week of the cards we do as a record of the progress they have made

We have been working together now for over a year and we looked back at some of the cards we had down in that time and they are really pretty.

It has been a real pleasure to work with them and we have some fun along the way too ... Long may it continue

The flowers are as always from Wild Orchid Crafts and the glitter I use is from Glitter Magic.  The ribbons are from Mei Flower 

More tomorrow...

Hugs xx
