Live from the NEC...

Happy Friday,

Today I am doing Hochanda TV show live from the NEC crafts show at 11am.  Therefore I wanted to share my a favourite card made with the dies on the show ( there are also some fab new products as well)

This card uses my pigment ink on acetate technique with simple white die cuts over the background the drama is created with the pop of colours!

I used the Gerbera Circle as well as the Gerbera panel die on this card with  large bow and small dragonfly which isn't really needed!

Dont forget I will be on stand G30 the Art of Craft all day so pop along and say hi!

    Your demos and samples were perfect. Good going.I have made several cards with the Gerbera collection now that it has arrived and I used your acetate smearing technique, fun and fast.Thank you for inspiring. I really love this collection!
    Have a great weekend,

    An outstanding card John. I would love to have been at the show but those days are gone for me. The last time I went to the craft show in Manchester would have been good for Candid Camera as my carer was pushing my wheelchair and was running into people all of the time. I forget how many times I said "Sorry!"
