A little Birdie told me.....

Good Evening Everyone, or should I say Good Morning now, thanks for stopping by.
Just a quick post tonight as it really is very late.
Another busy day at Sir Stampalot helping Janice and Andy pick orders and of course playing as well. The only trouble is that we get so engrossed in what we are doing that before you know where it is its 10pm and we still have to get home for some dinner!! And we always start early - well not for me I'm used to a 6am start - but I think Andy will be glad to see the back of me so that he can have a lie in again. I am definitely going to need a holiday to get over this one lol.
Anyway I have been playing with the metal embossing in preparation for my classes here on Thursday, so I thought that I would share one of the cards with you. I have used one of the wonderful Magenta stamps here and added some colour to parts of the image with alcohol inks.
I have mixed the colours with some glossy accents and then painted with them to add a little depth. The metal itself has been aged using acrylic paint.
I have, of course, added the new distress ink pads to my shopping basket and these have been used on the background papers.
The ribbon is new as well. In fact there are just so many yummy new things for me to see in their new shop that it's just as well that my lovely daughter is coming to pick me up on Friday and that I don't have to struggle home on the train.
Anyway time to pack up now as that alarm will be going off soon enough.
There are still a couple of places available on the classes, so if you fancy a break from the housework why not come along and join me and play with metal and alcohol inks. It's great fun and you can get to see the new shop!
Night for now
Love Kimx
