Busy Sunday!

Busy Sunday!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Running around now, setting up the next counter. What a two hours that was! I KNEW you would love these! And in Groovi too. What a fabulous job Cherry has done. Hereโ€™s that technique which I want to share – I just love it! I have used the Bird of Paradise, which just flew out the door, together with the Butterfly, the Dragonfly AND the Seahorse!!

You could do this negative painting type technique with any of them, to equally great effect. All you need is the liquid frisket. I found the empty plastic brush was best as an applicator. Cleans up perfectly with thinners.

Add a little shadow within the bird, to add depth.

Must crack on! 6pm launch with the Picot Flowers. I think they will be popular…

Love & Hugs,

Barb xxx

  1. I love the background technique, Barbara. I am definitely going to try it. The stamps are so beautiful… I can’t afford them all, but I will definitely be buying at least two! But which two…..????

  5. Hi Barb, love your shows today, as always, both products and your demos. Seems I’m not alone with all those sellouts eh!!! Watching you has given me some calming Mindfulness today too. Although no so much this hour as I’m trying to multitask – athletics on the telly, and you on my laptop in front of me! Not good for my head, but so what. Paula seems such a lovely lady, she’s been a pleasure to watch alongside you too. I didn’t manage any crafting myself, sadly, I do like to craft along with you, doing my own thing, but hopefully I’ll make up for it tomorrow. I look forward to seeing the rest of your demos. love you xxx

  6. Not seen shows yet will catch up tomorrow after visiting brother in law and niece in pembury hospital ,x

  7. Not seen the shows yet , will hopefully catch up tomorrow . I’m sure I’ll be tempted by it all ,love watching you create your masterpieces x

  8. I am in the dog house ๐Ÿถ as I not only ordered both the stamps and Groovi plates but the other set of Cherry’s stamps too. Great show, loved your techniques. Then looked at the picot flowers and ordered the bundle. I hope the OH brings my dinner to the kennel – ha ha.
    Fantastic samples – inspirational.

  9. Love the stamping techniques and these are such lovely stamps. Have recorded the show from this evening as wanted to do a bit of crafting before dinner

  10. What fantastic shows. Recorded them all so I can look at the demos again.
    Was trying to be good but just couldn’t resist the groovi plates in the first show and then the picot flowers were a must too.
    Can’t wait for them to arrive to play๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  11. Wow! Wow! and thrice Wow!!! Again wonderful products and demos today Barbara you are ‘simply the best!’

  12. Great shows this afternoon, loved both stamps and Groovi and demos of both very helpful but…I’ve been good and not ordered….yet lol! Saw the picot flowers launch show and while they’re nice I don’t think they’re for me, but it’d be a boring world if we all liked exactly the same! I’m sure there’ll be more along to tempt me soon enough. Will still be watching tomorrow’s shows as I always learn something xx

  13. Well didnโ€™t last long absolutely love the picot flowers so oops they jumped in my basket looking forward to playing with them xxx

  14. Well done Barbara, great show again. Ordered the stamps. Thank you for the step by step instruction but I have a problem reading all of the text as some of it is in black. Could it be clearer please?
    I have the programmes on record – useful for reminding me. I hope you have a decent sleep. See you in the morning!!! xx

    1. Hi Lynda, I see your problem, some of the writing is in blue and hard to read. I think that could be because, while Barbara is writing , anything that is a product is automatically turning into a clicky link to the relevant shop webpage. Try increasing the brightness of your screen, that makes the blue writing easier to see, and zooming in helps too if you are viewing on your phone/tablet. Hope that can help xx

  15. Great shows today. Ordered the stamps as I liked the effect of the stamp on the parchment giving a different look to the Groovi for a change. Not saying the Groovi plates won’t end up in my stash as well at some point !! Looking forward to tomorrows shows if stock levels allows them to go ahead as it has been another busy weekend, can’t believe a week has gone by already since we were at Leyburn.
