Hi crafty friends! It’s been a very busy week for me and I’m having a little lie in this morning (the perks of self employment!) after having a busy day yesterday at the Sincerely Yours show in Portsmouth. I was really chuffed to be asked by Carolyn from Pickwell Farm to help out on their stall and make some goodies using Tando Creative.
Now I’m being honest here, I hadn’t come across their products before so it was great to experiment and I was really impressed. Here’s a make from the day…
Tando manufacture a vast range of chipboard shapes which can painted, inked, covered, embossed, stamped….you name it, you can do it! They are so versatile. This Gothic arch was really quick to glue together (PVA is best) and I painted it with Acrylic paints. I cut out and glued small flowers on it and then added decoupage elements all from the new docrafts Botanicals range.
There are some lovely cute smaller shapes which are ideal for adding to cards. I’ve painted, decoupaged and varnished the hot air balloon here and painted, inked and layered flowers on the other card.
Finally, I’ve painted and added clear gloss to these hearts and finally had a play with my favourite girl Gorjuss and placed her in the theatre shape which I’ve painted and added gold embossing powder around the edges.
It was lovely to have the opportunity to play with some new goodies, thanks again Carolyn for a fun day!
Have a great day!
