The Farnborough February 2020 Create It show with Stampers Grove

Hello I am back from my crafting adventures at Farnborough and what a fab 2 days I had demoing for James of Stampers Grove at the Create It Show.
I was so busy that I didn't get a chance to take many photos but luckily James came to the rescue and sent me most of these in this post, thanks James!

Here I am at start up, 9.30 am on Friday holding my "Free your Imagination" sample, one of the new Visible Image release...
the next time I looked up it was 1.45pm! So very busy but such fun.

and here is James, myself and Karen Telfer who was demonstrating James' other stamp brands at start of play on Saturday morning. 
Below is such a funny you think I am gazing to the heavens for inspiration or wondering if my sample board from other shows above my head is going to fall on me? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‚
James captured me with my oxide sprays and the new Renaissance stencil...yummy!

Below is a few of the many demos I gave. My sample I made (shared at the bottom of this post) using the new 2020 vision set was a big draw to the stand so I demonstrated it several times in several ways! I used Brushos, Infusions,oxides both pads and sprays and alcohol inks in my demos.

So some fun top 3 most asked questions....

How do you "do" that Visible Image eye (which is why there are so many versions of the 2020 vision set in my photos) 
What ink is best for stamping with?
What card is best for stamping with?

Below is the sample I made for James to take round the country to his shows. It is a real rainbow of colour, using Brushos (which were really popular at the show). 

with a couple of close ups;

and one last shot.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

I had such lovely support from everyone I met and if you came( I did meet a couple of my lovely blog followers too), thank you so much for supporting my work and my creative journey. 

Now the fun doesn't stop here as contrary to me usually staying in the south I am off to the NEC Birmingham Creative craft show in March. I will be demonstrating for Stampers Grove on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th March (which is my daughter's 34th birthday and the first day of spring too).

So if you would like to find out the answer to my 3 top questions, pop along to the Stampers Grove stand there on the Thursday or Friday and I will be delighted to show you!
I always make a badge to wear and I already have an it is the first day of spring...perhaps some spring leaves might feature 😎......stay tuned and thanks again.
Stampers Grove also has an online shop here which offers FREE postage on all orders over £30. When James gets back to Scotland he will be adding the brand new VI release to the if you can't wait for the next show you can order directly from him.
