Everything was perfectly placed, three tables lined with craft paper and filled with precious materials: bakers twine of all colours, masking tape, glitter powders of velvet, pencils, tweezers, a lot of stamps... Aishh, was the paradise of crafts and creativity!

A wreath made with stamps of Isthar stated the salon...

At each site the main material was placed to each one of us: the gouges for carvar, a pencil eraser to make our first seal, a sheet of rubber for the second, a notebook, a box of ink and a craft with its stamped seal bag, bring us to house all that we had done during the day (as in school).

First thing he taught us was to carvar in a pencil eraser, to have a first touchdown. Gave us a choice of a lot of designs, or we could even make your own. I wanted one easy to start, so I chose a mushroom, because I love them. Carvar is not difficult, the hard part is doing so well, because it requires patience, precision... and good pulse!

And this is my sethite! What do you think? It is no big deal, right? Then wait to see with what I went for the second label on the rubber plate. I decided that contact was made, and this time chose one more difficult. It was a hallmark of flowers and plants that you had ever seen Ishtar, and I loved it. So I went for it, despite the difficulty of the small details...

And the truth is that I was quite happy with the result. To be the second label to carvaba in my life, "profe" told me that he was very well;).

He had to see us all concentrated carvando our stamps, sometimes chatting and sometimes simply in silence, enjoying the moment.

Once learned the technique of the carvado, Ishtar had prepared three different activities for each table, irian rotating throughout the day, that all did everything. She gave us a brief explanation and then stayed behind to work us us alone with our imagination...

The first thing he taught us was to stamp with velvet powder and beautiful greeting cards we made with this technique.

Then it was time to design mini labels with small labels, masking tape and rope bakers twine, which, incidentally, also I'm going addicted.

And finally, taught us another new technique, the "embossing", which gives you a nice shiny finish drawings. And with this technique, we decorate the cover of the notebook...

In short, was a workshop of the more productive, where we learned many new things that I hope to be able to practice soon. We met many new people that we had a great day and we get home a lot of gifts, handmade to distribute among the family.

Ishtar taught us his wonderful notebook of "Stamping", which will make different designs with their labels, often together children and is beautiful as it is leaving him. Here I leave a couple of pages...

Occasionally it is not bad get together with friends or new people for a whole piece day doing crafts.
