February Rochester Workshop Samples ... UPDATED POST

Hello Bloggers .. just a quick update on this post, to give you some details of the techniques I've used on my Workshop Samples from last Saturday. 
Card 1.
Distress Inks blended background, using the white, reverse side, of Centura Pearl card stock. ( This card stock really 'grips' your ink).

Roller removed from a Brayer and torn strips of cheap masking tape wrapped around the roller before snapping back into place.
Mist the Brayer heavily with water and roll it rapidly, a few times, over your distress ink back ground ..  cool effect! Dry with a heat gun.
Add some more ink through a stencil of your choice. Wendy Vecchi stencil used here.
Finally, add your stamped images, Studio 490 stamps on this card also from Wendy Vecchi.

Card 2
Distress inks background on the card stock as before.
Flick water over the background and dry with a heat gun.
Draw an oval shape on to the back ground in pencil as a guide and stamp the Lavinia Foliage Stamp around to make the wreath using various colours of distress inks.
'MUM' was cut from Quickutz dies.  

Card 3
Three colours from the Citrus inks range, (Oak House Studio) was  used for the background of this card. Add small amounts of your inks straight onto your craft mat and swipe the cards stock through the inks to get a very attractive but simple effect.
Cream card stock, also from Oak House Studio, used on this card.
The leaf image was stamped in various colours of Archival inks.
That's it .. I hope you find it useful.

Please may I take this opportunity to say, that my thoughts are with those of you and your families that are suffering so terribly, because of the flooding here in the UK. Stay strong, stay safe. X
