Tractor with Alcohol Inks

Vicky created this card during the show by covering the Window Plastic (acetate with the alcohol inks, stamping the images onto white card and colouring with Promarkers. The coloured Window Plastic was then layered over the top and attached with brads that had also been coloured with the same alcohol inks.

The tractor is from our Rural Scenery set and the Scarecrow and geese are from the Gypsy Caravan No. 2 set.

And the winner is . . . . .

Well the answer is 76 (and they are all still in the tub, currently, but only because I hid it), so if you come into the shop today we might share! Don't forget today is free tution Tuesday 10.30am-2.30pm plus I know we have some deliveries arriving - new JudiKins stamps, new DeNami stamps and some new Stampington magazines.

Anyway, back to the competition - 2 people guessed correctly so I put both names into a hat (Annabels new pink stripey summer hat) and the name I pulled out is . . . .

. . . Dawn Heald, who entered on Facebook.

Congratulations Dawn, when you see this please email me your address and I will send you your 4 stamp sets.

Sneaky Peak

We've been working on new designs and here is a sneaky peak of what is to come.

Gold Leaf Flakes

It has been some time since we have had a supply of Metal Gilding Flakes but we have just received a delivery this week. They are 3 gram bags of mixed colours and you can find them on our website here. Plus we have some bottles of Gilding Milk which is ideal for covering large surfaces like boxes etc. We have been working on new stamps for our upcoming TV show and will let you have some sneaky peaks soon. We have just received the full display of Promarkers which are now in store along with lots of re-stocks on JudiKins products as well as the variegated red and blue metal leafing. It looks like its going to be a warm and sunny weekend so I hope you get to enjoy it, for those of you going to Alexandra Palace this weekend be warned - it will be hot in there!
