This afternoon was spent at Sophiebio's house in Clermont with Aline (and her daughter Zoe), Nif, Gribouilletaz and loollypapillon. We talked and ate and did a bit of stamping. We did a bit of mutual admiration for each others pages and albums and I showed off some Stampin'Up! stamps and products.
I used the stamp 'sanded' on page 58 of the catalogue to make some pieces of card stock look like certain Basic Grey papers. Here is the link to the tutorial Val found the technique on and then passed on to me. It takes about 5 mins to colour a piece of 30 x 30 card stock and is a lot of fun to do as well as useful to get the exact colours you want to match your photos. If anyone wants any more information on the technique then please get in touch.
