Hi everyone and welcome back to my regular Saturday slot here at IndigoBlu. Great to have you joining me today!
Well, it’s been all go; with CHA 2015 now finished Kay and Alfie are heading off to Frankfurt for the Creative World show at the end of January before returning to the UK for the Craft, Hobby and Stitch show (known affectionately as ‘Stitches’) in February. These international trade shows give the manufacturers of your favourite craft and stitch products the chance to show what they have planned for the coming months so your retailers can get them stocked for you.
In case you missed them Kay posted some fabulous videos of the IndigoBlu stand at CHA on our Facebook page here;
And here’s Kay with the lovely Limor Webber, the internationally celebrated designer of a new range of IndigoBlu stamps. Now on with the first of my CHA samples, and a little lady I was sad to see leave me…
Using a Mannequin from the IndigoBlu shop I gave her a coat of white Gee-Sso Good! before applying some Kroma Crackle to a few areas. Once dried I added bits of lace and a zip from my stash before applying stripes of English Cottage Artist’s Acrylic Paint in Postbox Red, Burning Bonfire and Townhouse Teal.
With all that dry I added more gesso then used one of the new Limor Webber mixed stitch designs from the Rugged Edges stamp set; stamping it onto tissue I applied it over the top in various places using Slap It On (which you can buy in a set with a brush and a mannequin). The flowers, leaves and Alter Ego pieces were painted with Townhouse Teal and dry brushed with gesso and a matching bow was glued to the back. Finally I stamped the new Limor Webber Ink Splat Butterfly with FlitterGlu onto coal black stamping card and added Lancashire Rose Mega Flakes. Time for a couple of close ups…
Hope you like her and have enjoyed seeing a couple of new designs at work. There’s plenty more inspiration to come on Monday from Nikki and Wednesday from Sarah so make sure you join us again then. For now have a great weekend and whatever you’re up to take care of yourselves.
