It's Show Time!

The Katherine Show that is...and I've entered 6 pieces of work in the craft section! I still cant believe I actually did it. Four cards and two scrapbook pages have been submitted for judging and public comment...ugh - that's a bit scary! So here are a couple of them:

This card is actually much nicer in RL. I've used the Bodacious Bouquet stamp set and the Paisley background stamp. The card stock and ink colours are Vintage Violet, Certainly Celery, Old Olive and Almost Amethyst. The flowers and leaves have been embossed using the Versamark and classic ink pads and then clear embossing powder. The background uses silver embossing detail power. Ive also used white grosgrain ribbon, the Slit punch (for the corners) and Chrystal effects for the fake brads. All of these products are available from Stampin Up! and can be purchased through me from anywhere in Australia, please email me if you'd like more information.

Again this card is much nicer in real life too!! I'm going to have to work out a better way to photograph my work. This card features the shaving cream technique (which I'm teaching at next weeks technique class) for the background - isn't it cool! The stamps used are Wild about You, Eat Cake, Its Your Birthday, and Riveting (hostess set). The colours are Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Lovely Lilac and Whisper White. Ive also used silver cord, Sparkling Diamonds Glitter and Stampin Dimensionals - all Stampin' Up! products.

So what do you think of these two show entries? I will post a couple more later and I will also let you know the judges verdict...
