Cards,Cards and more Cards Making Cards Magazine October

So how is everyone doing?
As I am busy gearing up for my Mixed Media classes in California at the end of the month things have been crazy busy here but I can now share this little set of cards I made for Making Cards Magazine for their October issue, The November issue hits the shelves today.
I went for  a fresh looking vintage shabby style and have used Decoart Media Fluids, Tando-Creative Media Boards and stamps from Stampendous, Carabelle Studio, Stampers Anonymous  and Artistic Stamper 

There is a full step by step for each card in the magazine and you can get back issues direct from Making Cards Magazine incase you missed out x

While I was in the card making mind set I have also turned my hand to my Favourite time of the year, Halloween.
I have used the Tando-Creative media boards again as they hold up to paints and mediums brilliantly and more can be achieved than with a standard card blank.

I have used Decoart Media Fluids and Misters and Copics for the Skeleton card.
Stamps are from Stampendous, Brett Weldele (zombie) and Viva Las Vegas Stamps Skeletons.

Thanks as always for stopping by, Hopefully I will see some of you in California (details can be found in the classes section at the top of the page) and I'll see some more of you at Novembers Ministry of Mixology hosted and organised by Andy Skinner and Tando-Creative.
I am really looking forward to an exciting run of events building up to the new year.
If you are at a lose end on the 15th October I will be down at Pickwell Farm in Southampton teaching my vintage circus box class.
