Christmas Tatty Launch

Christmas Tatty had her first appearance today on Create and Craft and this stamp was very popular.It's one of mine and Jo's favourites, there are so many different techniques you could use with this stamp.For this card I used one of my favourite distress inks Chipped Sapphire,I always say,this doesn't look like the colour on the lid.Once stamped I used a damp brush to pull out the colour from the lines.I stamped again to cut out the individual buttons to 3D over the first image.The ribbon, American seam binding, was even coloured with the distress ink.
This was the first day of shows,there's another 3 tomorrow,Jo's going to be very busy again plus she's on her own this time,no Nigel.

There was no real break between the first shows Jo and I were busy deciding on products for two more shows that are just before the POW.It's all go,right I off to think about card designs for flowers and girly stuff.

Here's another Tatty sample from today's show.
