Oh My Word! What a fab weekend it has been. Sheena has done good!
If you were lucky enough to get ALL that you wanted then you are not going to be disappointed when the Postie brings your goodies. Make sure you set aside some serious crafting time, you is gonna need it!
I was gobsmacked by all the lovely Inkoid samples having only seen them in photo form prior to the shows. Watching Sheena and the presenters holding the samples, turning them, looking at them, showing them perfectly to you, the viewers, was so exciting. I hope it was inspiring for you to watch? That lovely fan by Donna, the little Japanese shoes by Diane, the lovely lime and teal blossom card by Lisa, the beautiful purple tree by Pauline, the fantastic Tea bag folding card by Fiona, the fussy cutting performed by Sandra, the vibrant colours of the bridge card Ria made, the paper covered box by Caroline, the shimmering Koi that Karen had swimming around on her card and the great stuff Mandy made. It was all fantastic! You know, I am in awe of all of these fantastic people, they have such imagination and skill. It is a privilege to be an Inkoid!! You will find links to all their blogs HERE and a gallery of the samples on Sheena's web site HERE.
I am going to show you a piece that I made for the shows and one which seemed to get a certain Mr May all excited!
Now, if you watched the shows you will know that this is NOT metal. It is simply card and gilding wax. Of course it uses the Sheena ingredients, the embossing folder and a stamp, without which the end result would not be possible.
I wanted to show you all this in the 'Sneaky Peeks' but held myself back because I wasn't 100% sure about it. It wasn't full on. It was possibly too simple. How wrong I was!! I think it was mentioned in every show!!!
Here is a gold version of this project, this time a money box. These sort of boxes are simple to make, and make great gifts. Only 93 days till Christmas! eeeeeeeeek! Check out the countdown clock HERE.
So go grab yourself a naked box, go to a charity shop, have a rummage, find something to give new life to. Use the time you are waiting for your Sheena goodies to arrive to get a stash of alterables together. Trust me, once you get started you will find it hard to stop!
I know that Sheena is in need of a rest, she worked hard bringing you all those demos. I am also going to take a break from Inkoid work for a few days to catch up on some much needed housework! Or maybe not................
Don't forget I am also on Facebook, KimzKrafts, where you can see more of my own work as well as more of my Inkoids escapades.
