Circle Circus and Because I care

Good Afternoon

Hope you're all well in blogland today.  I'm having a wonderfull day so far having started off with a really enjoyable craft class, a spot of afternoon tea and going out to dinner with friends tonight.  That's the way all weekends should be.

Today in class we made two quite different cards and used a couple of different techniques.  Our first card, a thank you card used the versamark pen to highlight small area's to be heat embossed, just adding a little extra texture, shine and interest to the card in different light settings.  Of course we used some gorgeous ribbon and made a ruffle to add interest.  For our second card we used another technique to take the colour out of the card, we used bleach, this gives a gorgeous effect with some clear embossing as the bleach does not seep under the embossing, allowing for very interesting project work.

Stamp set used: Because I care (hostess)

Stamp set used: Circle Circus
Happy Crafting
