Workshop - FlitterGlu & Stamping

 Happy Friday to you all, I do hope it has been a good week.
On Wednesday I ran two workshops at H.G.Arts &Crafts in Poynton and what a brilliant time I had, thanks to all the lovely crafters that came. 
I started with an introduction about FlitterGlu and it's uses...oh it is a fab product ....and has so many different uses...( ideas will follow) 
I then showed how it can be used with Mega-Flakes to produce a stunning gilded image. We used the Retro Christmas stamps from IndigoBlu.

 
For the first card the image of Santa was used, FlitterGlu applied, kiss stamped, flakes applied, then rubbed and 'scoochied'...the surround and the base card were stamped with Distress Ink and sequin waste gave us the pattern (thanks for the idea Maria Simms at Clarity N.W.). Straight after stamping I washed the stamps in water and dried them. The background was stamped using the Snowflakes stamp and the sentiment came from the brilliant new set... Seasons Greetings.
 

The second card uses the large Merry Christmas stamp and this was stamped in Memento ink so that we could use ProMarkers to add shading..once again Distress Inks was used for the background , I like to use a couple of different shades as I find it produces a really nice effect. The small holly stamp was used, stamped, cut out then stuck on with foam pads. 

 
I hope you have a good weekend, I will be busy tomorrow as I am at the Happy Stampers North West show at Port Sunlight.... I will be on the IndigoBlu stand with the very talented Kay Halliwell-Sutton (stand 33) ... If you are going do pop by and say Hi, ...also say hi to Barbara Gray, Maria Simms and the Clarity ladies ...(stand 27) 
See you soon, hugs, Jo. X
