- Just Us Girls - JUGS119 - where we must use the collage stamping technique
- Colour Q - cQc120 - regal, rich colours - just gorgeous
I started off by scoring some lines at a third and two-thirds the depth of the card (my Hougie board makes this so easy). I masked off the card above and below the scored lines and started to play with the collage stamping technique. I started with the palest colour - Wisteria Wonder - randomly stamping images. Then I sponged the same colour all over the central panel, keeping the colour a little deeper at the edges. Moving from Rich Razzleberry to Bravo Burgundy I stamped more images onto the panel. I sponged a little more colour around the edge of the panel with Rich Razzleberry. Once I'd removed the masks, I stamped birthday sentiments above and below the collage panel.

It turned out that yesterday was quite relaxed - I didn't end up ironing - but spent time with Mum instead. And that's always a good way to spend time. Today we're off to town again! See you soon.
