Shimmer samples

Oooh an early post!!! Organisation or what!!! Don't panic it will not last!!! Just wanted to talk a little bit about the Stamp Magic show at the Doncaster Dome last Sunday. Many of the visitors panicked , thinking I wasn't there, but I just wasn't in my usual spot. I had originally thought it would be too much for us to do at the moment so cancelled my stand. But it is always a lovely show to do and is not to far away from Harrogate to do some PR for the studio, so at the last minute Paula managed to squeeze me back in. And squeeze it was!! From a 12mtr stand to a 3mtr stand. It was extremely cosy lol. You couldn't fit me, The Goddess , and the Resident bit of Glamour on the stand at the same time as the customers. The Goddess appeared to be operating a one in, one out system. No ,only joking but it was certainly different from usual !!!!
I had great fun as I got to do the thing I love best, demonstrating and chatting. I love showing people how to do things and watching their expressions when they realise how simple it really is. Every things easy once you know how!! I was of course demonstrating with my favourite - Blonde Moments Pearl Pigments. Dry, wet , sprayed you name it I did it. Plus lots of Ultra Thick embossing (ooh I can feel a Ultra Thick tag tutorial coming on!!) The following are some of the samples that I made at the show, using the same method as the last tutorial and similar colours.

This time for my mask I used the Twiddleybitz Christmas tree. Gorgeous isn't it?? A combination of Blonde Moments Pearl Pigments, Ranger Distress ink and water, mixed in a mini mister were sprayed over the tree.

Then I stamped around the edges with the fern and holly stamp(Just Plain Xmas) in black Archival ink.

Finally added gorgeous ribbons and embellishments made from Blonde Moments Ultra Thick embossing powders. (Festive Candy and Savoury Tropic)

The tree can be used over and over, and at the end is beautifully shimmery and stylish enough to use in its own right.

Here are some more tags

Some Ultra Thick embellishments. the bauble stamp (boisterous baubles) is coloured in with the pearl pigments and a scribble of Stardust stickles.

And a couple of ATC.s made with left over bits.

Shoe Watch - Have you noticed on the above samples its the little details that make them so special, and its the same with these boots.
Lots of zips and popper fastenings

And just check out those cool soles!!! They make fabby imprints in the snow. lol
