\Well today will find me stamping all day! and die cutting, layering, making stick pins and all the usual things I am known for as I am doing another demo day for the Strikes garden centre chain up north. Today I set off at 6am to be at the Northallerton click HERE to see the address and details. I will be demoing the latest range of Creative Expressions craft dies from Sue Wilson as well as some of my stamps and my usual array of Cosmic Shimmer products. I have put a couple of new pots of glitter flakes and some Iced snow in the car so there's bound to be a little Fire and Ice! If you are in the vicinity pop in between 10am and 4pm to say Hi!
Back to today and quite a simple stamped card for Saturday, again from my shows at the end of February I promise some new creations on Monday!
This one was made using my Lotus flower elements set (a favourite of Mrs Duck) I stamped the main flower from the elements in Black archival ink on a strip of coconut white foundation card at the top left and bottom right. I then coloured them (and shaded them too which is a rarity for me lol) using a shaded lilac distress marker. All I did to shade the flowers was to outline the petals leaving areas white.
I then added the sentiment from the same set by stamping it with perfect medium and adding detail black embossing powder. I then shaded around the strip using the matching distress ink and a smoothie. Finally I made up the card as shown using a panel embossed with the heart lattice embossing folder shaded with the shaded lilac again and a seam binding bow added along with some stickpins and a large pearl embellishment.
