Thanks for popping in. It has been a great morning so far.
So let me see…firstly, we were in Tunbridge Wells by 8.30, in good time for an early morning coffee with some good friends.
Then, we went to the jewellers to collect the rings (You know what for!)
Then we went to the organic farmshop and bought some healthy food.
Then we went to a local pottery Open Day, and I signed up for a pottery class starting in September.
And all before 12 noon !!
That’s the thing. If you don’t do it, it won’t happen, right? If I don’t get up, make a plan and stick to it, there’s the chance I will fritter away another day of my precious life, thinking, thinking, thinking about stuff I can’t change.
Look! It’s only 2.30! There’s still plenty of time to go for a walk and find that perfect old branch I need for a little creation I have in mind….
But before I drag Dave into the woods (Oooerrr! This could be his lucky day!!!), let me blog one of the demos I have lined up for TV tomorrow. Dave says it’s his favourite. I think he’s just humouring me….
I know I keep going about about these new 3-way overlay stamps – but honestly! They are blimming brilliant!!!!
Ready? Here goes…
Stamp the Cornflower & Friends outline stamp on Northern Lights Designer card using Cobalt Blue Archival ink.
Add the Mini Congratulations Word Chain Stamp. I curved it on the mount to go with the flow.
Use the Inner fill stamp now, to fill the image using the same Archival blue ink.
Here’s where we’re at now….
Now it’s time to do some colouring in… Perga Liners, blended a little with the Dorso Oil on the new blending nibs. Great for getting into tight areas!!!
Once the lowlights are in, it’s time for the highlights! This Pergamano Gel Pen certainly does the trick.
Quick edging trick with the black Sharpie pen and then mount on a white piece which has been brushed lightly down one side with a little Artistry Golden Turmeric.
Let’s get in a little closer, shall we? See the white dotting? I think it brings out the cornflower nicely, don’t you?
There you go! That’s it. Just a little taster of tomorrow’s show.
If there’s time I will do this one of course, but if not, here it is!!
So that’s me, Stampy Barb 2-4pm tomorrow on HOCHANDA.
But the MAIN EVENT, a Groovi Extravaganza, is actually at 6pm! Tina Cox is launching a superb set of parchlet plates, which are just sublime. They are PERFECT for those of us who just want the ready-steady-go frame, the outline, the design in place. These little plates are delightful. Just superb. But what else would you expect from Tina Cox? Shall I show you? Just a peep then….
Yep. Imagine the number of combination possibilities !
Great Launch price too. But more of all that tomorrow morning, here.
Hahahaha. Yes, actually, thinking about it, the 2-4 show is the warm up, the support band!!
But fear not! The warm up band is usually full of beans and energy too!
