June's Thursday Class

Last Thursday we made a waterfall card and a box envelope. This post will concentrate on the waterfall card but I will show you the finished box another time.
First of all I have to say a massive thank you to Georgina and Vicky who ran the class on my behalf. Good friends and sisters are like angels in disguise XXXXX
So back to the card, we used regal rose as the base followed by early espresso. This layer was stamped with the sanded background. The waterfall mechanism is real rose, early espresso and whisper white, and two silver brads.
This card looks so effective, and is easy to make (if I can do it so can you!) I found a you tube tutorial and watched it a couple of times and hey presto the card emerged. I also found some inspiration at which is Jane's blog.
The stamp set we used was Garden Whimsy, and went down a treat with a number of my ladies as they like butterflies. We used regal rose and early espresso inkpads and then the markers in old olive, regal rose, real red and basic black.
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think to the card.
