AB Fab Day At Christchurch Regionals

Saturday I attended the Christchurch Regional Training Day. 
What a Day, it was full on but so inspiring.
Sophie from Aussie, ( Australian Trainer ) was great so easy to listen too, she has given us new techniques to try. There were 4 make 'n' takes for us to do using 'Happy Moments'Stamp Set (out of the new catalogue) which we got free for attending. The stamp set has lots of scope for watercolouring, it was a stamp set that didn't appeal when I first saw it but now that I have a played with it I can see that I will use it.
It was so nice getting together with other demos, and to meet people whose blogs I read and of course the swaps that were swapped.
Here is my swap that I made.
I have used my brayer and sponges to make this card.
Colours I have used are Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Not Quite Navy, So Saffron and Always Artichoke. Pocket Silhouettes was the stamp set I used.
To get the waves I dragged Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy Ink pads across the card and added White Gel Pen.
The swaps were great, some using new stamp sets from the new catty. Thanks for sharing your swaps. It such a great way to get different ideas.

It was such a fun day, I will be back tomorrow to tell you more.


  1. Love your brayered card Helen! OMG, you are really getting the hang of that now. I feel the need to case this one - I love it!

  2. that is sensational Helen - makes me want to have a go :)

  3. WOW, Helen - check out your card! Those waves look so real! You're awesome, lady.

  4. Your swap is gorgeous Helen. Think you should come up and give us Aucklanders a lesson on how you achieve your brayering effect.
