I was eager to get in to work on Tuesday morning to discover what was in the boxes that were in the warehouse on Saturday. . . . . . . .
I was thrilled to find a range of wood items that included a set of three bottle holders, a mini A frame display holder and MDF alphabet and numbers. In Papier mache` there were suit cases, vanity cases and picnic baskets.
My mind is racing with the possibilities of using Chalk Paint, Acrylic Paint or Maya Gold Paint along with Inka Gold Wax and our new decoupage papers. Oh! The list goes on.
I can’t wait to make a sample, but which should I choose?

Here are a couple of sample cards that were made on the demo day Saturday just gone. We very often hold demonstrations at weekend to show different techniques. This demo proved to be very popular. The image was stamped with duo glue and gilding flakes were used to achieve the effect shown. Any rubber stamps work with this technique, but the penny black rubber stamps that were used gave a really nice elegant finished card.
We have a good range of the penny black stamps in stock and limited quantities of the various colors of gilding flakes and duo glue that were used. It did however prove to be so popular that I am sure we will be re-stocking on these items. Just give us a call if you require any information on the products used and we can put them aside for you or post through mail order. The red card that has been used as a border on one of the cards is new in stock but flying out. The depth of colour on this amazing card stock (12″x12″) has to be seen to be fully appreciated – it’s gorgeous.
