Hi fellow crafters and followers. Hope you are all well and have enjoyed the bank holiday.
I had a lovely time on Saturday at the craft show in the motor museum near the NEC. It is a small show but because of that I was able to watch 3 demonstrations and see everything clearly, ask questions and chat to the demonstrators plus I had a lovely talk about pan pastels with a very helpful lady at the Creativity Store Ltd. I haven't yet got into pan pastels, don't know why to be honest other than I never liked chalks and I think I associated pan pastels with chalks. Well this lady was extremely helpful, I watched her demonstrator and had a feel of the pan pastels. I was then given some advice on a starter kit, she steered away from a bigger set towards a smaller set which gave me all the tools and two colours so I could go away and have a play. I then went to the Sweet Poppy Stencils stand and watched a demo their and bought a stencil and some pearlescent paste which I played with on the afternoon and I was delighted with. You will see those results in the weeks to come. A cup of coffee and another tour around with another demo about some new glitters which I will definitely look at in July as there were some lovely colours that need to be added to my collection. It was a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning.
Today I have gone for another digi stamp from Saturated Canary - I just love those images. Miss Blanche here was coloured in using a mixture of spectrum noirs and copics. She was die cut out using spellbinders oval and matted onto a piece of black card die cut using spellbinders oval scalloped die.
I then started with a C5 plain white card followed by a piece of black card followed by a piece of plain white card which I have embossed using a swirl embossilicious folder from crafters companion. I then cut a strip of black card and placed a piece of pink ribbon around and put that onto my card. My flowers are made from marianne dies and the swirls are from cheery lynn. A topped of with some gems and card candi.
Hope you like it and thank you so much for stopping by. Take care.
