We have some fabulous card classes going on at The Rubber Room and I thought I would share a card from one of our classes with you today.

This is a bookmark card and the image is from High Hopes. The beautiful paper is from Basic Grey. The image has been water coloured with Tombow markers.

This is the inside of the card.

The large paper clips are ideal for making bookmarks.

For those of you in London and surrounding area, we are having a watercolour class in early March so be sure to watch The Rubber Room website for all the details. Our water colour and copic classes fill up fast so register early so you won't be disappointed

Have a wonderful day

Wags N' Whiskers

Good morning

I have another Wags N' Whiskers image to share with you today. I just love these beautiful images, fabulous deep etched rubber that are perfect for embossing and still lots of room to colour. This image is "A Good Book" and the talented artist that created these images is Crissy Armstrong.

The image was embossed with black and painted with Tombows. The border punch is from MS and the flowers were made with Ek Success Retro flower punches.

We will be having a "Copic Class with Joe" in February, another perfect medium to use for these gorgeous Wags N' Whiskers images. Be sure to keep a watch as the spaces are limited and Joe's class fills to capacity very quickly.

Have a great day...

Manger Scene Step Card

This card was done in one of our "Watercolouring with Tombow Markers" classes. All done with High Hopes Rubber Stamps, some heavy mulberry paper, raffia and lots of colouring. Hats off to Karen on my design team that did this fabulous card. I think it is my favorite this Christmas.
