One Day Special Shows on Hochanda today

Hi Bloggers.

I'm launching a new One Day Special on Hochanda today at 6pm with the lovely Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Cloud Inks. There's another show today at 8pm today and then more shows at 9am, 1pm and 5pm tomorrow. I have lots of techniques to share with you so I hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

Whilst prepping for this ODS, I have been very good and I've been mopping up all waste Chalk Cloud Ink from my Craft Sheet onto pieces of Coconut White Card and I've got some really lovely backgrounds to use. This is one such background - the main colours on this one are Blue Lagoon, Toasted Rose and Sweet Violet. I stamped the Woodware Travel Background on top using Onyx Black Versafine Ink and edged with Blue Lagoon Chalk Cloud using a Smoothie.

 I covered a Pop-em from the Arty Hearts Set with a little White Gesso (it's not necessary to cover the Pop-ems with Gesso but on this occasion, I wanted the inks to be the same colour as on the rest of my card). I added Sweet Violet Chalk Cloud and edged with Blue Lagoon Chalk Cloud. I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Vintage Inspiration Stamp Set using Versafine. I made a flower out of some more of my background and Coconut White and Black Card using Sue Wilson's Sweet Williams Die Set, edging the petals with Blue Lagoon Chalk Cloud.

I wrapped a piece of Sheer Iridescent Ribbon around and knotted a couple more pieces to it. I added another flower, made as before but with larger dies from the set.

I matted onto Black Card and then Coconut White Card. I completed my card by adding a 3mm Black Pearl to the centres of my flowers and a 5mm Black Pearl to each corner.

I'm offering 10% discount on items I have on my website from the shows. You can find them here. Offer applies till midnight tomorrow night or while stocks last. Discount will be applied automatically at checkout.

See you at 6pm!
