Black and White...

Happy Friday,

I really hope you enjoyed the Flower Making masterclasses yesterday on Hochanda, I really did enjoy it especially the last hour where I got to present the demos on ,y own ( although I have to add that I missed the banter with Alex!)  I have to admit it is unusual to have someone talking in your ear as you speak but hopefully that wasn't noticeable!

I thought you might like to see a close up of the Black and white card I made on air with the stunning gloss card.  As I said on the show this was the first time I had worked with the Gloss Foundation card in black and I have to admit i loved it!

I simply used the Perfect peony dies designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions both the Open and complete petals.  The only addition to this my favourite Trailing Ivy.

The stamp is form my Daisy Chains clear stamp set for Creative Expressions and is one of my fave sentiments as it meets all sorts of occasions!

Julia Watts and I are demoing tomorrow in Leeds at Samuel Taylors so if you are around that area it would be great to see you.  Julia and I will be travelling up there today so it will be an evening of laughs with Julia for me!

Enjoy...

  1. Morning John, a fabulous card really very striking. Not managed to watch your flower making shows yet but looking forward to them just watched the last show with Lisa last night it was great I have to watch the shows in rotation so hopefully I'll get to watch the others tonight. Am off to our craft show later in Glasgow so will have a lot more goodies to play with tomorrow.

  5. Morning John, yes loved all your shows yesterday, especially all the tips and techniques, the ideas just come flowing out, you talk about one thing and that leads you onto loads more, that to me is what crafting is all about, the learning and sharing and you do this to a 'T'. I would love to be a fly on the wall this evening when you and Julia get together, I bet there will not be a dry eye in the house. Anyway enjoy.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
