Thank you to everyone who came along to the Ringwood show down in Dorset. It's quite a long way for us to travel but you all make the trip very worthwhile and we are always made to feel very special and welcome, I do love this show. It was a nightmare journey down though, the rain was unbelievable as was the volume of traffic so the journey took nearly four hours. And of course unloading our van in the pouring rain is always such a joy!!!!!
This show is always mega, mega busy in the morning. At one time we were so busy that someone I know actually said to Mark would you like some help at the till as we had a massive queue, so bless her, she rolled up her sleeves and bagged for Mark to get the queue down.I had no idea that all this was going on as I was having such a fun time demonstrating. So thanks Jenny, your help was greatly appreciated.
The afternoon was so much quieter, it always is, so I took the opportunity to have a bit of a play and experiment with my new Nick Bantock ink pads. Well, actually they are not new at all, just new to me and I wondered, as you do, if I really needed any more ink pads!!!! Well, OF COURSE I DO!!!! Some of these colours are just divine, they blend easily just like my Distress ink pads, and they look great with Glimmer Mist over the top. I particularly liked Damson Plum and Van Dyke Brown. Brown I'm not surprised by but the purple colour......I'm really not a purple girl at all, but this was gorgeous. I'm hoping that you can see the colours on the tag sample which started out with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink on a tag which I had put through my Cuttlebug. I then sponged a bit of both Damson Plum and Van Dyke Brown over the top, sprayed Gold, Copper and Dewberry Glimmer Mists over the whole thing. I love this sample so much that I don't want to stick anything on top of it....how silly is that!!!!!
Let me know what you think.
