Class on Bohek Technique

The class last night had a blast!  The topic was the Bohek technique and the stamp set used was "Banner Greetings".  There were 5 students present, and each student had 3 different colours of reinkers.  I made a tutorial for them to take home so that they wouldn't have to rely on their memory, which we all know can be faulty at times.

The backgrounds they made were absolutely gorgeous!  One girl started out by saying she didn't like orange, and I had given her Tangerine Tango as one of her colours.  But she went ahead with the technique and ended up loving it.  The class samples are posted below:





I think they all did great jobs.  Some have bought watercolour paper and are going to try this at home.  By the way, I had them tape the watercolour down with Washi tape and one student commented that she has finally seen a good use for this product - and ordered some.

The photos I took of the class are a bit dark.  Afterall, it was evening.

Next class will focus on Faux Shaker or Confetti cards.

Fun Fold - Double Z Fold Card - SUO #119

The challenge with SUO (Stampin' Up Only) is to make a card that is folded differently than just in half.

I chose to make a double Z fold card, using mainly SAB products.

Card closed

Inside of Card

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock 11 by 4 1/4" and scored it at 2, 4, 8 and 10".  The card was then folded in half, and then the front was folded back to form the Z.

SAB DSP was attached to the inside , and 2 different patterns of the same DSP were adhered to the front.

A piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock was attached only to the front half.  On the Whisper White piece that was adhered to the Coastal Cabana, two images of the bird from "A Happy Time" were stamped using the masking technique.  Both were coloured with markers, and the background sponged with Soft Sky ink.  A Butterfly, from the stamp set "Nature's Perfection" was stamped in a remnant of watercolour washed background watercolor paper, cut out,and adhered to the lower left corner using glue dots.  A tiny flower was punched from the same remnant and adhered over the front sentiment.

On the inside I used 2 stamp sets for the sentiment:  "Simply Wonderful, and "A Happy Time"
