Bird Crazy by Tim Holtz, Art du Jour, and April Online Class Registration now open!

This past Tuesday was Art du Jour at The Queen’s Ink and we sold out of cards within a few hours! I had to scramble to make a few extra kits so that everyone who wanted a card could make one. This is only my third month participating in Art du Jour and I never know what to expect, but it was a delight seeing so many come out to join in on the fun despite the threat of bad weather.

I had two cards available and I am listing the supplies below. If you didn’t get a chance to come out, you can still make these cards on your own. Stamps, paper and other supplies are available at The Queen’s Ink (and remember – Patti can order for you if something you want is not in stock).

The next Art du Jour is on Tuesday, April 10th. You can drop by between 10:30 and 4:30 and craft to your heart’s content! At $3.00 per project, you can quickly build up a stash of cards, tags, etc. for any occasion.

Don’t forget – my next Copic card class at The Queen’s Ink is on Tuesday, April 3rd. Online registration is now available! You need to bring your own markers to class, so be sure you check out the class description so you will have the necessary supplies.

And with no further ado – here’s the supply list from the March Art du Jour cards.

Below are the supplies I’ve used for today’s project. Items marked with an asterisk (*) were provided by a store or the manufacturer for free or at a discount. All other items were personally purchased. Read more.

Watercolor Geraniums

It’s been several months since the last post, but there has been lots of activity here at Rowhouse Greetings. We live in a nineteenth century Baltimore rowhouse and like any older home, it needs some periodic TLC. So now that the dust is settling, it’s time to get back to work with some new cards to celebrate the coming spring.

I usually work with Copic inks, but I love these watercolor style stamps from Penny Black. Geraniums are a particular favorite and we usually plant them in front of the house. Since the window is next to my workspace, it’s nice to look out and see such a cheery splash of color. It’s still too early to plant them for this season, so this card will do for now.

Supplies

Cardstock: Neenah Classic Crest Cover Solar White 110 lb.
Stamp: Light Touch by Penny Black
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Mowed Lawn.
