More paint fusion

Thought I would post a heart shaped box (2 actually) that I have painted using the paint fusion technique.  The stamps and paint are available here

Sorry there's so many but wanted to show all sides ;o)  I really urge you to give this a try if you haven't already, if I can do it anyone can.  I am giving the large box to my mum for mother's day so I have lined it with some velvet sticky back paper. 
Will probably try the daisies next!

Paint Fusion Card

Hello there.  Just thought I would share a card made using Sheena Douglass' new paint fusion range.

 Just a simple card but I wanted the painting to be the main focus so I just added a few paper roses which look a different colour on the photo for some reason!

Anyway, for the painting I used the Rose stamp that you can find here .  I'm loving this technique and have more to share with you later on in the week.

All I can say is if you're thinking of trying painting have a go at this as it is really quite simple to follow , especially if you get the DVD that shows all the techniques, tips and tricks.

Back soon with more samples and hopefully a giveaway too!

More new stock

Well I am slowly building up stock levels.  I have added some of Sheena Douglass's Paint Fusion range including some of the stamps and paints.  I have been playing with this range and I love it - I'll post some pictures later of my efforts.  Also up on the site are some stamps from Crafthouse Press - a UK based firm.  These include the Dandelion stamps;

These are really cute and already mounted on Kling-on so easy to use. 

Also from Crafthouse Press are the 'Fabulous' range;
 I just love these little stamps they are so versatile.

Also on the site are the new Tim Holtz Distress Stains which are great for all sorts of projects including dyeing ribbon and trimmings and colouring tags.  They can be used in conjunction with the Distress inkpads.  I am at the moment waiting for lots more Tim Holtz Idea-ology stock to come too.

Also due is the second issue of the Cricut magazine and also an Ideas magazine which this month is all about embellishments.

Finally I am waiting for lots of Imaginisce products including their brilliant i-bond tool and their super roly rosies which I have been desperate to get hold of.

Anyway I'll be back soon with my paint fusion projetcs and more news of new stock.
