Ally Pally Day 1

Well finally it arrived. Ally Pally. YAY

The "Marks" were ready. Lin's Mark on the left, and my Mark on the right.
Twins?? - Just like Lin and I have interests in common, the Mark's both enjoy photography and are pretty good at building stuff, and computesr, so they happily chatted all day when they could!. I think they quite enjoyed themselves.

The stand was ready

Lin (left) and Leandra (right) were ready

The aisles were empty waiting for people to come in.

And the Archies and B-Line inchies were waiting for new homes.

Some of the PaperArtsy Squiggly Ink stamps.

Demo tables before they got messy!

Sheila was the first person to nab an Archie! She was thrilled! As were all the Archie owners!
I didn't get to photograph you all, but these people were more than happy to let me get clicky!

Karen and Michele

Helen and Kay

Carol and Angela
All got Archies!

Onto the demos. 

Viva ferro with pink and purple paints on top...yes !!! Pink AND!! With a touch of gold! Quite like it actually! Tomorrow Lin get to use the purples and pinks all day!!!

Here is one of the new fob watches with a ridge puffed out to give some texture.
The background is distress inks in Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo, sprayed with scarlet and tattered leather glimmers, with some marshmellow. The marshmellow Glimmer Mist is opaque with a very sparkly sparkle, almost holographic!, it tones down the darkness of the other dark shades making it easier to stamp on top. We love it!

Here is a similar thing, this time the quote was embossed with clear EP, the clock is on pearl metal and sprayed with walnut gold and creme de cocoa. The other little copper bits are parts of one of the larger grid stamps chopped up and added as bellies.

A UTEE'd clock, stamped flowers and copper clock embellishments.

Another distress ink background with copper clock embellishments.

Another distress ink BG with a stencil accent, stamped and embellished with pearl metal. The wings and small circle on the clock are all puffed out.

A close up of the clock.

Christmas Elf stamped on Rum and Raisin papers. Glossy accent highlights.

Sticky backed canvas on an arch, terra at the edges with Viva paints, and copper clock and accents.

Check out Lin's blog for more of what she did today too!
And we hope to see more of your for the Sunday Archie's on offer.

Wow! that was quick work. Well done - althought I don't like my piccy (that's why my blog is photo-less....) but thanks again for some FAB ideas. Too exhausted to play tonight, although I have blogged my day! See you again soon.xx
