Boadicea

Hi everyone, I hope you had a good weekend.  It was the Indigoblu Retreat this weekend (first of two), and I went along with Mags, who is our lovely Indigoblu Show staff, and buddy of mine.  We got together with the rest of the Design team over the weekend that could attend, and have to say, a brilliant time was had.  I have been so tired today.  It was great to see familiar faces though, and meet some lovely new ones.

I’m very very late in posting, but I know a lot of you are night birds like me 🙂

I have a card to show you from one of the recent Create & Craft shows, I would of liked to show you our retreat works, but it’s still a secret, as there is a second retreat (and still spaces if you fancy it),  where you can create the fab things we have this weekend.  It really really was worth it, I would recommend it if you are thinking about it, there are three really great projects.  You can book individual days too, pop across HERE and take a look.

So here is Boadicea,  proud Warrior queen.

BOUDICEA1

I coloured my backgrounds with spiced marmalade and mustard seed distress inks, it’s a lovely warm background.  I used crackle background in second gen stamping, to give an aged effect, and die cut the circles to stamp Boadicea on to.

It was simply layered, the sentiment from the same set added, and some embellishments to highlight.  I like the simplicity of this card, and that she looks so serene and proud.  That’s what little girls are made of!

Well, I hope you are all excited for the NEC to open the doors to Hobbycraft on Thursday this week, I will be there demonstrating for Kay again, with my favourite Ice Resin and some stamping techniques too.   Kay of course will be showing you all the new products, which are FAB by the way, and how to use them, as well as your favourites, or those you just want to see again!

Come along and see us, I believe we are on stand E41, there will be a friendly welcome for you.

Have a good week,

Best Wishes,

Nikki
