Demo Day with Crafty Lou

I can't believe it was a week ago and it's taken me this long to tell you all the fun we had at the demo day last Saturday. The fabulous Louise Molesworth (Crafty Lou) was demonstrating her unique style of inking and stamping techniques. She really is a wonder to watch. For those who couldn't make it into Sir Stampalot to see her demo's first hand, I just had to share with you some of the artwork she created (Just realised the photos have come out an awful colour this time, sorry guys, best check my camera setting for the next post).

Firstly, good ole Tilda with Bird, I've mentioned before, this is the first Tilda stamp I remember Louise buying so it has a special place in my heart :)

Cream shrink plastic was used for the Tilda Tag message:

A small punched out circle created an aperture for the Birthday Wishes stamped greeting from Hero Arts. Nicely finished off with a heart brad in the centre of the motif.

Here's the inside of the card, with pattern paper by Daisy Bucket and the Nestabilities Labels Two die set.

Here's another card, this one uses the Tilda Hen (usually makes an appearance on Louises card in shrink plastic mode) but on this occasion sitting proudly on the Tilda fence - TV adverts of the kellog's symbol comes to mind!!

Don't be afraid to shrink Tilda's - look at this little cutie (Spring Tilda) perched on top of a greetings motif. The circular greeting used here is from one of the most popular Woodware Clear Magic sets, currently. Funnily enough, it's called Circular Greetings and consists of 6 different circular sayings, some flowers and accents that can all mix and match together. Fantastic results when used with the EK nesting circle punches - both plain and scalloped.

The turquoise background scalloped circle has been embossed with the Happy Birthday cuttlebug embossing folder, gently wipe an inkpad over the raised embossed words to make them really pop out. Louise has then included the Tilda Present stamped image and attached some matching swirly organza ribbon to finish the card off.

That's just a taster to get your juices flowing, i'll post more of these gorgeous Tilda cards in the next day or two. I promise i won't leave it so long next time!


Charity Update: The charity box of cards instore for Brenda's MS Cause, is growing all the time. Thanks everyone who's been able to spare a card or two.
