naaaaaaaaaaa, it’s not – it’s all good.
We came back from shopping this morning, bearing 3 different sized square boxes (to make a wedding cake card), 2 packs of scrummy pale Jade self-adhesvie pearls, a set of pale jade gem brads, a set of Sugarloaf markers and a Marvy blender pen. Also got two handbags (but that’s by the by) one for me and one for Mum (there was a sale, what’s a girl to do) – in fact, we spent so much money they gave me a See-D’s alphabet set as well.
I got the markers because I need to take part in the cutey -v- arty challenge on UK STampers, basically we have to do something way outside our comfort zone. Generally I do artish type projects, so I’ve got to do something cute.
Ages ago Lydia got me a Penny Black Hedgegog stamp, which has never even seen ink, so I’m using that as a base. Got to give the girls a big up that use the markers on these kind of projects – it’s really very tricky to get the hang of (but I can see that colouring could well become addictive).
I’ve been reading a lot about Copic markers, and so I thougth that I would start with a cheap set to see if I like the concept before I jump right in and buy an expensive set like the Copic’s.
Since getting back, I’ve unpakced my Bind it All, and wached the CD that came with it – mmmmmmmmm, can’t help thinking that the two ladies who present it should have had maybe a couple of dry runs through first – it’s sooo badly presented, it’s actually quite funny in an fingernails down a blackboard kinda way. Anyone who’s got the CD too will probably agree.
I am now wishing, however, since watching the CD that I’d got the Dream Kutz as well – I can see that I may well be spending more pennies next week – I WANT ONE!
Can anyone tell me how I don’t mush up the cardstock when I’m trying to blend the markers?
