Kay Carley Stamps

My poor neglected blog, I've been so busy the last few weeks I really don't know where that time has gone. The card that I have to show you today, I made while having a crafty play at a friends house a couple of weeks ago. The stamps I bought at the Newbury show at the beginning of July after standing and watching Kay Carley demoing with them. She was making the backgrounds for her cards using water colour paints and a 1/2 inch paint brush by just splodging the colours across the card. Then layering stencils and stamps on top. The backgrounds were so quick and easy to make and I think look very effective too. Tomorrow I'm off to Kent in the morning for a day's workshop with the wonderful Eileen Godwin, hopefully I'll have something to show you on Sunday or at least at the beginning of the week.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
