I finally had a few free minutes to play on the computer and download the last of the pics I took at CHA. I was able to get a nice picture of Tim Holtz doing a make 'n take on the Ranger booth using his new Distress inks. I did want to give it a go, but there was a queue (obviously) and the wait was way too long!
On the other end of the Ranger booth, Suze Weinberg was demoing and having a play with her ultra thick embossing crystals so I stopped by to say hello. Suze and I have known each other for years since we both used to do stamp conventions in the States together. She always has time for a quick pic. She's a lovely and very talented lady.
Here's a quick sneak peek at something else fun we found at the show. We are now going to be carrying leafing in an amazing variety of colours. It is so simple to use and adds such richness to your stamped pieces. Use a clear perfect medium pad and your favourite stamp, then add the leafing by simply laying it on top and brushing away the excess (which doesn't go to waste, by the way) and it adds a lovely gilded look to your artwork. I can't wait to get it in stock and start using it on my samples. The word is it will be available to order before the end of February! I will keep you posted. All for now, Sue x
