Bonus Evening Class

For all the ladies who had booked the accommodation package for the Craft Retreat, we threw in an optional bonus evening class, so this is where we had our evening meal and then our class....
But before we got crafty, we got to stuff our faces - wasn't going to bother with dessert, but decided the Bailey's Chocolate Pot needed some love.....
So for the bonus class I decided to introduce the ladies to some quick and easy water-based marker techniques using Letraset Aquamarkers, Neon markers and Metallic markers. Here's the first sample I made using Neon markers, the Tim Holtz Fanciful Flight die, watercolour paper and I used some PB stamps but the ladies used Marion Emberson "Sunshine & Flowers" stamps...
the ladies had free reign to use the aquamarkers and neon markers and here are some of the lovely samples they made with these stamps and the butterfly die... from Louise, Anda and Meg (please click on each to see them larger)
for the second tag, I went for a grungier look using Metallic Markers, Tim Holtz mini blueprint stamps and Tim Holtz Gadget Gears die cut grungeboard.
and here's some samples from Louise and Meg....

The table looks very elegant ... especially like to see plenty of wine glasses lol. *wink*
Your ladies did very well with all their tags and I bet they went home having enjoyed a thoroughly fabby weekend - with such a variety of projects and techniques organised for them to dabble with, they couldn't help but have a blast.

Love the effects of the butterflies against the lovely colours. Looks as if that chocolate dessert was truly loved too.
