Dutch Doobadoo....

Hi folks.. Weird title to this post I know, but that is the name of the brand of Masks/Stencils I have used on this project.... And I kinda like it!!

Just another sample for the 26th's Embossing demo,

just trying to get a little more out of our Masks than the norm...

With such detail on some of them it seems a waste to just use them with Texture Paste, Gesso or Sparkle Paste, although I have plans to use some of those as well...
Thanks for checking us out, see you soon.

Butterfly Box.....

Hi folks.... Just been getting some prep done for our Embossing Demo Day on the 26th April..

Like most boxes I make, this particular one has no practical use what so ever!!

But still an effective and fun project to do none the less..
Thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.

Well, they've started to arrive.....

.. The new Spellbinders Dies and 3D M-Bossabilities Embossing Folders that is...

Can't quite believe our price of the 3D Embossing Folders, having seen some of them on a well known shopping channel for up to £10 dearer than most retailers are selling them for.. What's that all about?? New packaging too...
Have a great Friday folks... and thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.

A little more inking....

Hi folks.. Just another couple of samples from this week’s lesson..

I've moved on from Distress Inks to Memento Inks as I was intrigued to see if the results would be the same or different using another brand..

Ironically, it would seem that although the pigment/dye in the Memento Ink is probably stronger, it has given a much lighter tone to the background, that could also be just my application of the Ink though?!!

Still, more play time to be had!!!
Thanks for checking us out..
See you soon.

Hi folks... This week’s lesson che Pinnacles is all about Inks!!
Now, I've been known to have a dabble every now and then! And why not, when you can achieve such dramatic results!?
Who would have thought that this little project started out as just a plain piece of White card stock?!

I've added Distress Inks for my background, made my own stamps from some of my (our) Dies (Yes, I'm still churning them out!), heat embossed and water coloured with Distress Inks...
Loving the results so far... More to come during the week...
Thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.
