Cloudy Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

Today I am demoing at the Stoneleigh craft show for my Friend Wendy from Daisies jewels and crafts.  I will be demoing between 11am and 2pm and will be doing some demonstrations with the fabulous new Colour Cloud Blending inks form Cosmic Shimmer.  There will be some christmas die cutting and maybe a little stamping form my new ranges as well!

Ive usually stuck away form shading and colouring through masks as I struggle to get an even colour tone, thankfully the blending abilities of the Colour Clouds makes it easy!

I thought as a quick card I would show you this sample I made just using papyrus foundation card and the Creme Brûlée colour cloud ink!

If you are at the show pop along and say Hi, Julia and Phill will also be there on his Sentimentally yours stand so you may see the three of us together.


  1. Hi John.
    Well this is a different sort of card for you, it is lovely. Have lots of fun today. Take care Kitty.

  2. Morning John, very nice card today. I would love to be a fly on the wall at Stoneleigh today with you all there, I expect it will be a laugh a minute.

    Enjoy Sunday, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  17. Hello John, this card is so different and striking, love the geometric pattern and great colours. Have a great day at the show. Bx

  18. I've not seen these Cloud inks so I am intrigued I love this mask - what's it called? It's a lovely card I like the colours and layout I bought some of the papyrus card when Sue had it on C&C I'm still at the stroking stage! This has inspired me to play Have a great day at Stoneleigh

  19. Certainly different today John. Not sure I like the design of the mask, but the inks sound intresting.

  20. HI John, not sure about this card, love the colours but not keen on the mask.

  21. Hi John,
    Think this could be a good card for the men in our life, great colours.

  24. Morning John,
    There is so much on the market now from inks to paint, it all gets very confusing, just don't know what to buy. Unusual card today.

  25. A beautiful, masculine card, love the colour of the paint.

    Have a great day crafting

    Love & hUgs

    Beautiful card, I love those colours. Must try that, especially useful for males.
    Best wishes, Rose

  27. I love the pattern on this one, perfect for male and female cards
    with just a change in colour. Love it

  28. Hi John
    Well, these inks certainly are different, and I love the card that you've made it with it. I hope we get to see a demo soon of them.

  29. Hi John
    Didn't realise you used a mask with the inks. Do you remember which one you used please.

  30. Hi John

    I now want to add to my mask collection! Lovely card, just the thing for a man card I need to make. The ink colour is lovely too.

    Hugs, T x

  31. Eh up John
    This is a handsome card in the flesh and the Colour Clouds are excellent.

    Hope your feet are up now.
