Website Open for Business

Vicky and I are still able to work from our warehouse, we don't have any staff so we are able to work on opposite sides of the room and keep manufacturing and sending out orders.
This week we will be recording our demonstrations for Hochanda and sending them in to the studio, which is definitely a novelty for us.
So I will be all cosy at home on Saturday when I'm demonstrating on TV - am I going to watch?  No way.  I hate watching myself on TV, it is truly bizarre.

So you can still order from our website or you can call us weekdays 10am-3pm on 01234 855833 and we will be able to despatch your order within a day or two.

Amazing Glaze Klimt

You may have seen me make this on Hochanda last week using our new Klimt Ladies
and Amazing Glaze on to our Twinchies.
I covered the Twinchie with embossing ink and then a layer of Amazing Glaze which I heated, whilst it was still hot I covered it in a 2nd layer and then a 3rd layer of Amazing Glaze.
Topping it off with 2 layers of gold embossing powder.
Whilst the gold layer was still hot I inked the stamp and gently pushed it into the melted powder and left to cool.

Layering Gabby and sticking her inside the card.
Inside the back of the card has been inked with blue so that Gabby has a blue background when the card is closed.

Sneaky Peek - Gabby Giraffe

Sneaky Peek - Klimt

JudiKins Klimt Lady, Flourished Frame and Animal Prints border
So simple but so eye catching.
I've always had a soft spot for Klimt art - maybe it's the magpie in me that is drawn to the highlights of gold in his work.
