Thanks for stopping by.
Time for some down time with a new idea.
I decided to get out the new umbrella stencil and have a play...
Wasn’t sure where I was going,
but as long as I was in out of the rain, who cares?!
Attach the stencil to the 7x7 Gelli Card.
Low tack masking tape on all 4 sides.
Ink Pad Alley!
6 lovely colours.
And a set of Clarity brushes.
I can feel a special offer coming on there.... read on...
Load the brushes with colour and start applying to the brollies.
Give a little thought to colour balance...
and don’t be afraid to go bright!
Need more brushes though! Can’t be washing in between colours!
Mmm. OK, let’s see.
The 6 ink pads I used for this Brolly project are £4.50 each.
So £27 for all of them.
Buy the 6 ink pads, and we will send you a set of 4 Clarity Brushes worth £19.99 absolutely FREE.

Looks so vibrant! Nothing like a rainy day!
I decided to run it through my E-Bosser,
just so see what would happen.
Brilliant. I got a superb paper out of it too.
I shall save this one for a rainy day!
Rightio. Stencil back in place.
Flick some water at the inky brollies and blot.
Once again, this project is like a train;
you can get off at any one of the stations.
Here would be a good place to stop.
Or you can stay on till the end of the track!
Me? I’m the train driver!
So dab Versamark ink all over the water-marked brollies,
(with the stencil in place)and then
remove the stencil.
Sprinkle Detail Clear Embossing Powder over the gloopy brollies, tap off excess powder,
and heat emboss from underneath with a
2-speed heat gun set to high.
It really looks great up close.
The train is slowing down. Want to climb off?
Nope? Ok. Hang on. It’s about to get a bit choppy.
Cut the sides off.
Nice. But now what?
Looks around the mess that is her art room,
looking for inspiration.
The big blue broken beak bird isn’t saying much...
Well, let’s just cut them into smaller squares, about 3" x 3".
If all else fails, we could make a set of notelets!
The Titanium trimmer cuts this like butter. Well worth investing in!
And then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw them!
I had bought them last year at the NEC, but never used them....
Fab glass coaters!
And my faux ceramic brollies fit like a glove.
It was meant to be!!!
What a great gift for somebody!
They look so Tunbridge Wells Hoopers expensive Gift Shop too!
And guess how many in the set. Yep, 4.
So there we are. That’s at least one Christmas Pressie sorted!
Or I could just give it away as a gift to a Facebook friend?
Call it Blog candy, call it bribery,
here’s the deal.
I have started a new Facebook Page. Had to, because the other one has reached 5,000 friends (?), maxed out.
But now I have to get those 5,000 friends and anybody else who want to join in to LIKE the new page!
So. Click the link below, and go LIKE the page.
Once I reach 5,000 friends again, I will randomly pick one of the friends to send these lovely Clarity Coasters to!
Could take a week, could take a year!
Help me out here!
