Well, I won't do THAT again. Hump

When I did my alpha, I left it in the card thinking it would be easier. And, it was until last night when I put a sealant coat on it. Today, it was all stuck fast and I spent 2 hours trying to release the letters from the backing. Evil or Very Mad I still haven't got them all out, but I'd had enough, lol.

Me too Karin . I gave up in the end after ruining 4 alphabets and settled
on some embossing.

I've just had a look at them all and they are all brilliant, any one of these sets would be a thrill to receive.
There's a lot of work there girls, i think I was right not to join as it must have taken a good while, but worth it, some very original ideas, well done all, a pleasure to look at. Looking forward to seeing them IRL next month, next month yay.

that was the idea and you could always rub some more ink over them in a different colour.
