For Inky Fingers this week we're using VersaMagic inkpads and Cardio stamps. I don't do much with chalk inkpads but now I've had a go, I'm a bit hooked - you can create such beautiful, softly blended backgrounds.
Here's what we'll be making if you fancy coming along:
That's the theme of my class next Saturday 19 November, at The Craft Barn.
We're going to be trying out the new alcohol ink colours from Ranger and various techniques using Infusions on Yupo to make a selection of Christmas cards.
Here's a sneak peek:
So, if you want to make some different looking cards and learn new techniques at the same time, come and join us!
I've been having a little play with some old books for my next Inky Fingers Class at The Craft Barn and this is what I came up with: the first is a tree with cover as a background:

I've never tried this before but the folding is very easy and surprisingly quick.
I thought I'd post it here as the group weren't at all sure about this project (don't think they could visualize what I was on about!) Obviously the colours are all variable - it'd be nice to make a sort of woodland tree as well - getting carried away now!

We had a great time and walked our socks off!
Here's the card I made for her:
