Explore your creativity with pen techniques

This month we have decided to bring out the creative artist in you all by exploring a couple of different pen techniques. I will be using watercolour pens to create simple floral design toppers like the ones below.

We have another guest demonstrator this month too - after Linda created such a stunning doodled background for one of our card challenges we couldn't let her get away without doing a demo! So she has been busily exploring doodling and Zentangles and will give you some ideas for how to get started.

Don't forget to bring your GB Challenge card too - I have even made one this month while I was experimenting with Zentangling! (thought I should make the effort since I missed the last card club). I'm not eligible to win the free workshop entry, but just wanted to prompt some last minute challenge entries!!

Lots of piccies!

Challenge winners, never-ending cards and magnetic interactive card piccies and lots of them! Looks like you had a busy month without me! See below for the dual Challenge cards - backgrounds created by one person then handed on to someone else to finish.

Well done to Carol S. and "A.N. Other" for their winning entry (above). If you recognise the purple clock Cosmic Shimmer misted background then let us know as you and Carol both win half price entry into your next workshop!! (Brenda, Marie or Vanessa was it yours?!! Apparently none of you claimed it on the night)

Well done to Karen for her demo on the Never-ending cards (above) and thank you for helping with transporting stuff up to Card Club in my absence. Click here for demo notes on how to make a Never Ending Card.

And finally some of your magnetic movable embellishment cards - very impressed with the ideas and creativity! I love "Ollie" the Olympic torchbearer! Well done all!!
