Last Day of the Roman Stampfest!!!

Posted by manicstamper on May 23, 2007

That’s it then……….I’ve had enough of stamping mens cards now. This is the last lot of Roman cards for now.
The first one is a very loose interpretation of the Retiform technique. The centre panel is coloured with Adirondacks in Stonewashed and Denim. The other panels are Stonewashed and Eggplant.
I don’t know what you would call the second technique though maybe ‘Stupid Woman Sitting Up Until 3am Cutting Out Half Inch Squares Of Card’ would fit the bill………lol!!!
The third card is a Sizzix tag cut from an alcohol ink background of Mushroom and Espresso. I then stamped the image and painted with alcohol inks and blending solution. For the mosaic tiles I cut tiny squares from funky foam using a square plier punch and stamped the colours individually using an assortment of Adirondack inks.
That’s my bit done this week for workshop cards so I need to clear my desk now, have a good tidy up and then make a card for an order and a few cards for the stand at the local shop.
DD is doing tea tonight so I don’t have to worry about that. Not that she does cooking……….her best friends are M&S and Tesco’s Finest…….lol!!! So we are having cold chicken with fresh salad and Jersey Royals.
What with one thing and another I have got so behind with The Big Challenge on Carolyns so I will try and make some of the cards for the shop fit the challenge.
Catch you later

    Great cards Sheila – I like the second card and it looks very similar to the Modern Grid Technique- which is one of my favourites. Also love the Mosaics – something else I am a fan of!
