What's black and white and red all over?

Probably showing my age here - joke from (primary) school days. No - it's not a sunburned zebra ... it's Jill's next card class.
The final cards are still a work-in-progress - I have to see if I can source some of the papers I've chosen, but here is a sneak peek. I will use at least two of the ideas pictured and hope to do three cards in the class.
The class kit will include this stamp from Stamp-It:
Here are the cropped card pics:

Class dates will be announced as soon as I've sourced the paper I want.

Playing with Swing Cards

I've been having fun putting together some (fairly) quick and easy cards using the techniques I'll be teaching this weekend.
I will have a few kits available if people want to replicate them.

More Information

I am receiving a good response to the Distress reference book pictured below, but have been asked for more information. Classes will include you making your own set of colour swatch tags, exploring a variety of techniques for applying Distress Inks as you apply them to your book, and using the Inks and some of the Markers with stamps. Depending on my access to card stock and ribbon you may have homework after each class.
I will make sure I bring my book to the next Social Capers, and try to have it in the shop on days I am teaching there.

Distressed? No - I'm excited!!!

I (Jill) am looking for expressions of interest in the running a Distress Reference Book series of classes. Natalie and Fiona ran this some years ago based on the first range of Tim Holtz Distress Ink colours. Since then the range of colours has doubled. The original class was $30 per session over 4 sessions. The new series would be similarly priced. If you did the original Book this will give you a chance to update your colours. If you have a collection of inks and want a great reference and technique collection you won't want to miss this. If you are new to Distress Inks I will consider re-running an updated series of the original Book after these classes.
Please use the 'Comment' option below to register your interest in this series of 4 classes, as I will need to order the journals and tags.
Note - you would need to commit to all four classes - these could be one per week, per fortnight or one per month. I am thinking of starting late August depending on availability of supplies.

Below are pictures of the FIRST book:
