This time 2 weeks ago I was doing last minute prep for our shows on Hochanda.....little did I know what the day would bring and the huge number of orders we would get in. For that I am incredibly grateful to everyone that supports us.
It has meant of course that I've not surfaced from the workshop for 2 weeks but the last of the orders were packed up today and will be dispatched tomorrow.
I had serious creating withdrawal symptoms so I grabbed a few paints and settled down with one the fabulous new kits that Tando are cutting for Andy Skinner.
All will be revealed over the coming weeks with the launch happening at the Stitches Trade Show at the NEC in February.
Anyway here is one part of one of the kits. I curled the edges of the tag and used DecoArt Fluid Acrylics (Titanium White, Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Cobalt Teal and Prussian Blue) on the tag itself. The bottom of the tag is actually shaped like that when it comes which makes for something a little unusual. You only get a 2 and a 5 but the boards splits easily to create additional numbers. The stencil in the background is one of the new Tando ones ;)
The heart is already in sections and the is also an unseparated heart to mount it on. I used the same colours as above plus some Pyrole Red and Quin Magenta. I've also added a little embossing enamel and finished off with some matt varnish.
