Alcohol Inks with a Twist of Thanksgiving

OK, here we go...Thursday, November 11th and Saturday, November 13th. I realized I changed the stamped part of the burgundy card just embossed pops a little more, and I am missing one of the images but I will take another photo and get it posted. Three new techniques here for those of you who have taken the other alcohol ink classes I have taught. And if you do not need this many Thanksgiving cards, they would all make great Birthday cards and I will bring some birthday stamps along as well.

Point of View: October

Here are the five cards for Point of View this Thursday. To stamp the Unity tree stamp I used, brown and green markers (memento, but any dye markers will do, pool and stream paint dabbers, versamark and black detail embossing powder, jet black archival, tea dye and vintage photo distress ink and a blending tool for the vintage. For the leaves I used distress inks, reinkers and perfect pearls in an assortment of fall colors - just about any would work. Think peeled paint, rusty hinge, any of the browns, yellows or oranges - with blending tools! I will have everything at class, but if you want to work faster, bring along what you have in your stash and off we will go. Class is Thursday night from 6:30-8:30.

Halloween Pumkin Dude

This little guy is next weekś class - and while we will make him using a glitter pumpkin you can easily adopt this idea to real pumpkins of any size. You will leave class with the hat pattern and the measurements for his cuff. This size sits on a stamped tag with a little Happy Halloween sign, but you could customize him many ways. Class is Thursday, October 14 from 1-3 or 6:30-8:30.

Halloween Tray Class

I am not sure the photo does this justice, but you get the idea! The tray has lots of dimension, is all in black, orange and white - with a touch of copper! Fun home decor or a great gift. Easy places to add a couple of photos if you want to highlight your own trick or treaters! The class is next Sunday, October 10th and is also being offered on Monday the 11th. It is 3 hours - Sunday 12:30-3:30 and Monday 10:30-1:30 or 6:30-9:30. Don´t forget to bring your adhesive!!
