Stitches part one!!!

Well I was so lucky to accompany Moira from Happy Daze to Stitches at the NEC Birmingham this week and would like to say a HUGE thank you for the invite :D
It was a fab weekend, not only did I get to see Moira and Carol again but I also got to ooooohhhh and ahhhhh over Tim's amazing creations :D

Now before we went Moira asked me what I thought about the new distress stains and I had to say.............not much really!!! LOL

well how wrong was I????
They are not just distress ink pads or re-inkers re packaged they are a whole new entity of their own!!!
They are very intense colours - way more than inkpad - it would take you forever to build up that intensity!!!

well here's the first of three videos I have for you.............apologies for the poor photography .......I'm a very short crafter not a camera man after all LOL :D

Did you spot Carols amazing spoon ring??? and Moiras gorjuss sparkley nails??? good job you can't see my yukky nails!!! LOL

I love the amazing technique for the faux batik!!! and Carol is lucky enough to own that tag so if we ask her nicely she might just take us a fabby close up shot!!

Stay tuned for the next one coming soon - I promise :D

Hugs'n'inspired snogs,
