I made this card whilst demonstrating at the weekend. I used a couple of Marianne dies, a Kreaxions die and an       M-Bossabilities folder. I coloured it with distress inks and finished it off with Stickles glitter glue. I think the colours work really well together and had fun pinching and folding the papers to give it dimension. Hope you like it, let me know.

For the last 3 days I have been demonstrating for a company called Craft Habitat at the Pins and Needles Show at Gosforth Park race course near Newcastle Upon Tyne. Craft Habitat specialise in die cutting machines and dies, as well as inks, punches and beautiful papers. This is one of the cards that I made. I used one of the new Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folders, Marianne dies and a punch. I coloured the whole thing with distress inks and added some sparkle with Stickles glitter glue. Hope you like it, let me know.

A days teaching today and I was in a creative mood too. Whilst tidying my desk I discovered a stack of half completed ATC’s and had great fun embellishing them. The first one (top left) was created with Touch textile paint by Pebeo and abandoned because I didn’t like the colours. I re-coloured the background with Pro Markers and then I added extra Touch Paint around the edges. The second(top right) was created with Distress inks direct to paper. I then drew on top with a Metallic brush pen, created a flower with a stencil and finished with a pearl in the centre. The third (bottom left) was originally stamped with Touch paint and sprinkled with ultra fine glitter. I resurrected it with Touch in Pearl colours which I applied with the tube and a paint brush.  Last but not least was a gold heat embossed image of a poinsettia which I coloured in with Pro Markers and then adorned with Stickles glitter glue. I didn’t like it so I sanded it down when dry and removed some of the glitter. I added word stamps where appropriate and used Touch black Metal paint with a fine glitter glue nib attached to enhance the wording.
