Stamp Camp

Well it was a wonderful weekend with like minded friends. Fantastic venue, good healthy food, just the best place to be!

There was no structure but for me it was head down & bum up. I finished a couple of projects then I started to play. It was great to be reminded of how to do things and to be introduced to new techniques.
I have attached a couple of cards that I made up from the images I stamped up & coloured on the weekend. I used Photoart stamps & Distress Inks to colour them.

A friend of mine sent me some napkins the other day and I felt this one was too beautiful not to be displayed. I had some 4 x 4 canvases, so I cut the napkin down & attached it with gel medium. I then highlighted a couple of areas with Dimensional Magic. I actually think I prefer it not highlighted, so if I can get another napkin I will redo them.

Altered Jigsaws

This is from another Tut at 2cre8art. I have altered quite a few jigsaw pieces in the past but haven't done any for a while so it was fun to spend some time on them this week. I have only completed one but will get to the others in a week or so. I am going to camp this coming week so need to get myself & family organised before Thursday.

I recently followed a tutorial on 2cre8art and it confirmed my belief that I am not a natural with needle & thread. I gave it a go and it is OK, but I would not pass it on to anyone. I used the image that Barb used on hers because I simply loved it, however the blue pattern from the background fabric showed through so it isn't as crisp as it could be. Thanks for the challenge Barb.
