I was so lucky to be invited to Stitches with Moira, Debbie and Carol from Happy Daze and had such an amazing time :D
It didn't start so well due to train issues so we won't talk about Saturday LOL
I have totally turned into a Ranger/Tim Holtz/Claudine Hellmuth/Suze Weinberg LOL
I spent a large chunk of the weekend toally engrossed in watching them demo all of their amazing products :D
I have a few photos to show you from the show of the amazing examples they had on displayBeautiful grunge paper flowers made from Tims new Sizzix die, covered with book paper and inked with gorgeous distress inks. There is a tutorial on Tims blog showing this technique so check it out here :D
Some of Tims tags
This one should have been mine Grrrrrrr, but was claimed by somebody else!!!!
It was created with Distress embossing powders, the new distress ink colours and the ideaology hardware was inked with distress ink and then embossed with the distress powders then a little chipped away.
Tips for using the powders - don't use normal embossing ink or versamark as they are too sticky and the release crystals won't work, leave it to cool as thats when the release crystals become loose, don't put the release crystals back in the pot, discard them or your powder will stop working eventually, shake the pot to mix them up before use, and it Tim is creating you a beautiful tag don't let somebody jump in and pinch it!!!! ( There is a bounty on that finger tip!!! LOL )
A beautiful grungeboard plaque complete with Marios breakfast LOL
Examples on the boards
Ok, thats quite an overload for now LOL
I will share my beautiful items that I was lucky enough to be given with you tomorrow I think, including my tag from Tim :D
