Oh Christmas Tree....

Well many of us are well under way creating our Christmas Cards, and boy do I have a lot to make - the way things are going some may get shop bought cards (sorry to blaspheme).

Anyway I did find time between TV shows to create this clean and simple card, using Penny Black's
Deco Tree 40-349, I will be back doing more shows this weekend if you fancy a giggle!

Oh Christmas Tree

This image was stamped using Imaginecraft/Tsukineko Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using Chameleon Colour Tone Pens in Aquamarine, Grass Green and Spring Green.

Thanks for visiting me today,

Did you know Chameleon Pens is Having a Design Team Call?

Hi everyone, I know this is not strictly something I normally do, but Chameleon is having a design call for their Pens and I just wanted to give everyone the heads up about it, you can find the call details here.   I have been doing projects for them since January and they are a great company to do design things for, so if you are looking to join a design team, give them a go!

Water Water Everywhere

Yes it is the latest craze watercolour cards are back in fashion again, I thought I would try my hand using the new Gansai Tambi watercolours and my trusty Tsukineko inks to get a silhouette effect.

Must dash lots to do, will someone please invent a time machine so I can catch up!

Radio Slience

Hello, is there anybody there....yes I know I have abandoned my blogging duties for the past few weeks, but I have a good excuse!

I have been super busy as a Guest Designer for Chameleon Pens on Create and Craft TV, it has been fun but a very steep learning curve, the good news is I got to meet lots of lovely people both in front and behind the camera.

Well enough waffling, here are a few shots of my latest venture...
Outside the studio on a grey cold morning

Setting up before the first live show, you can see them filming over my shoulder.

And another show with marker man Nick and Nigel the presenter.

I have lots more shows to do, but I also have a lot of projects to share...just need to find time to load them up to my blog.
Until then hugs
