Second Demo, Bue of course...

Happy Saturday,

Well I am classing this as a something different as I did demo this on Thursday's TV shows so this will have to do as something different.  Hopefully a lot of you were able to catch me demoing this however Its always nice to see the finished product in close up along with the full ingredient List.

There is however a technique on this original sample that I didn't demo as a last minute change meant that the product wasn't available on the show.  Therefore I quickly changed the centre panel that holds the stamped image and the flowers to an embossed one.

This original is made using a That Special Touch mask and the beautiful Aurora Texture pastes which adds a stunning shine to your projects and creates a lovely level of texture and dimension.  I am hoping to have these products available on my first Solo show (more about that later) so I thought you would like to see the original card in all its er... glory.

I am hoping to demo this in November because the good news is that I have been talking and planning through my next C&C shows today (no rest for the wicked) I can confirm that I will be appearing again so I can't of been that much of a rabbit in the headlights as I thought!

Therefore as those of you who were able to tune in on Thursday saw most of this card made on air and hopefully in early November (date to be confirmed) I will demo the background its just an ingredient list today!

  16. Good morning John,
    I think you must have been looking at the weather from my house this morning because you captured the sky as it is at the moment perfectly in colour. Oh how i love Sue's daisy die as it is so pretty but you can achieve so many different type of daisies from it and them look real and natural. You can even get Livingstone daisies out of them by a touch of ink, oooo now the brain is fired up again. A bonnie card, John, thank you
