October Card Club

Hello ladies! This month we're playing with the "Reflection" technique. I've revised the original card that you all saw, and this is my second version.  I like this one much better, as it doesn't require much ink blending at all!  This scene is easier if the stamp does NOT already have a reflection in the image and isn't too tall for the card.
At any rate, here's the supplies to bring to class besides your basic crafting kit:
Brown stazon ink and Brown dye ink
White gel pen (optional)
Scattered Straw distress ink (Pale gold)
Weathered wood dye distress ink (A gray blue dye)
Wild Honey distress ink (medium gold dye)
Peeled paint distress ink (Olive dye)
Tumbled glass distress ink (Light aqua)
Blue Bayou Stampin Up (Dark Aqua)
Broken china distress ink (Medium Aqua dye)
Summer sky dye ink (Pale blue)
Rust dye ink
Clear stamp block
Treeline silhouette stamp and Large evergreen stamp (like Stampscapes Evergreen or other treelines)
Ink applicators (Finger daubers or Tim Holtz Foam applicators)

Please bring a clear stamp block as wide as the treeline scene, EVEN IF your stamp image is wood mounted.  The clear stamp block is part of the technique we'll be using.
Class is scheduled for Thursday evening October 6th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm and offered again on Friday morning October 7th from 10am to noon. Hope to see you soon! ~Kim~
