...Cor blinking blimey and thrice! Before I waffle on I just want to say a mahoosive thank you for all the fabby emails you sent in yesterday - it was a shame we didn't get a chance to read many out. I know a couple of them had questions attached to them, if you would like me to answer them, please just pop me an email directly and I will be able to answer you that way :O) So, as the title suggests, it is Giveaway Time today! I was hoping we would be able to do an extra giveaway on the 6pm show yesterday but we just ran out of time... so... a little giveaway here instead. To be in with a chance of winning this here tag, please just leave me a comment on this post... and if you aren't a follower already, click to follow my blog (over in the left had sidey bar :O)) I will pick a winner, chosen at random, who will be announced on Tuesday 19th March 2013.
This was supposed to be a full old demo tag but because we ran out of time, you never got to see it finished. The technique I used is one I haven't tried before... and I was in the Land of Nod the other night and dreamt this idea up. When I woke up I decided to give it a try and see if it worked... and it did! Hurrah! If you didn't get chance to see the demo, here's what I did: Covering a tag with an old bookpage to get a nice base for the tag design. I used Cosmic Shimmer glue to stick them together. Next I used a palette knife and lightly dragged smidges of Sand Eco Paint over the text, obscuring some and leaving some still showing. Drying in between each layer is right important... so use a heat tool to speed this up. Next I used Scattered Straw Distress Stain, squidging some onto my craft sheet and then picking it up with my palette knife and spreading it over the tag... keep applying it until you have the coverage you want. Dry with a heat tool and then repeat with Seedless Preserves DS... and then again with ah smidge of Black Soot DS. Once dried, use the Black Soot to edge the whole tag.
The birdy was coloured by pouncing Black Soot, Forest Moss and Scattered Straw Stains onto him and then drying him. There's a Spiral flower made from normal black cardstock... and then some Heartfelt Falling Leaves cut from green Bazzill cardstock. Check out the ickle embellies... how cute! They are all Embellish Your Art pieces that were on the shows yesterday. And there you have it!
Like I said, thank you... every single comment, Tweet, email, Facebook mention... they all make me smile very biggly and mean ever such a lot to me... it means that you are liking the shows and the demo's and the goodies, which means that I am doing things right ::O)) Right.. I shall away... I have a busy day today getting ready for my weekend of classes at Snazzy's in Swindon. *not to mention trying to tidy the Room of Stash and put stuff away... * Thanks for looking! Have a goodly day... TTFN
PS... a few weeks ago I had a giveaway and the winner, Gill, hasn't been in touch with her addy ... Gill, if you could email me please and I will post your pressie to you! Cheers :O)
