New Class! Spring Greetings – Cardmaking Basics – Queen’s Ink – May 8th

In this workshop, you will create three cards featuring a variety of cardmaking techniques – stamping, coloring, stenciling, heat embossing, die cutting, etc. If you’re an old hand at making cards, you’ll feel right at home. If you’re new to cardmaking, you’ll learn the basics to get you started with this fun hobby.

The flowers are colored with Karin Brushmarkers and this is your opportunity to try out these markers. The Queen’s Ink has added Karin Brushmarker PRO to its inventory, a great addition for artists of any level. Markers will be provided for students to use in class. No experience necessary! CLASS FEE $32
