Our workshop consisted of two full days of stamping techniques starting from the very basics all the way through to some advanced techniques. Day 1 we reviewed the basic tools, indexed and mounted stamps, practiced basic inking, and created 5 projects. Some of the techniques we covered included layering, ribbons, white crayon resist, and masking. Day 2 we incorporated what we learned on Day 1 (that constructivist educator in me) and added bleaching, embossing, and emboss resist. We ended with a card sketch challenge and some magnificent cards were the result.
What a great way to share the art of stamping and Stamp to Cope's mission. We have been asked to grow with the program for next year and I am so excited. There are plans to bring in the local medical teams and spread the word further and earlier. If you were unable to make it this year, maybe you will be able to join us in 2012. Blessings, Jeannette
