That's the name of the shows today at 11am till 1pm with Dean and 5pm with Hayley. Here's one of the demos I've prepared for the shows -
For the background, I simply popped a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Nuevo Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then went around the edges with Peeled Paint Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
The Tatty Button Swingtime stamp image is of Tatty swinging from a tree (obviously) but I just wanted her on the swing and not the tree and I didn't want to be bothered cutting her out so, I masked off the tree bit of the stamp, inked up with Jet Black Archival, removed the mask (important - I've forgotten to do that so many times!) and stamped. I embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. I coloured in using Matt Drawing Inks (more on order for my Amazon Shop). I used Marigold, Umber and Dark Spice from the Autumn Shades Set, Meadow Lime from the Garden Twist Set and Cosmic Tone from the Skin Tones Set.
I made a template by cutting out the main die from the Spellbinders Just Swingin' die set (with the outer frame die). I laid this over the Tatty image, placed the outer die on top and cut out. I cut the main die with the outer die out of Green Card. The wax paper really helps with this die. I removed the die cut from the dies and dusted with an anti-static bag. I placed the die cut back into the die and inked through the die with Perfect Medium - just on the tree bits, not the frame. I removed from the die, added Cosmic Shimmer Ancient Copper Metallic Embossing Powder from the Metallics & Darks Set and heat set.
Dusty Concord, Fired Brick and Mustard Seed Distress Inks for the flowers and Peeled Paint for the leaves. I removed the card from the die, masked off the area above the basket weave box and then inked the box with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
White Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Medium Square Dazzler from the Assorted Square Dazzlers Pack.
Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.
Hope you can join me for the shows today.
