Been playing with my new toys to get samples made up for the extravaganza at The Craft Barn soon.
I'm demoing Paper Soft which is sooooooo nice, I've got nearly all the colours now as I just had to keep going back and get more!!
It's a water based paint in a jar which you apply with foam applicators and use as much or as little to colour your card. Its used a bit like distress inks. There is a range of very inexpensive clear stamps and stencils which can be used with it and these give a variety of different finishes. It is already selling like hotcakes and is going to be big for the summer I think. I'm alright cos I've got mine!!!!
I've posted a the first card I made with it.
Take a piece of white card and colour it whatever colour you want. On the card I used Apricot and then used Walnut Brown around the edge. The image is a Crafty Individuals and so is the script stamp which was stamped using the paint. No ink used at all!!! The flower was also coloured with the paints and Tim Holtz scrolls cut and coloured too. I didn't colour the button, thought was brown to start with!!
I've used one of the border stamps down the side and again stamped it using the paint. I've used Paper Pen in Walnut Brown to create dots in the border.
Sorry about the picture, it wasn't the best photo in the world, I took it rather hurriedly in the shop before they closed!!
See you soon,
