Hump Day Again

Good afternoon, well it's the middle of the week again and this is the first chance I've had to blog since the weekend.
Sunday went incredibly well at the new Hobbycraft store in Dundee, it is always a pleasure to demonstrate Letraset products and meet new people. I spoke to all ages from wee lassies of 7 years old, to retired ladies and gentlemen, the thing I like best about demoing is to show just how easy it is to get beautiful effects with the promarkers, flexmarkers and aquamarkers.  And I just want to say that the manageress, Stephanie and all her staff are top-notch. A quick wee toot for Paula, one of the associates who is also a design student .
So here are a few pics of the store, as I'm sure you're aware, Hobbycraft have rebranded and all the new stores have new signage and layouts....

and this on the inside of the toilet door really tickled me...
I'll be showing you my samples over the rest of the week.
I used this one to illustrate that you can use promarkers for other things besides colouring stamped images...
Image: Little Red, Gorjuss from PI, coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers - cloak is Aubergine, Plum and Mulberry, dress is Wild Orchid (f), Orchid and Soft Mauve (f)
The wooden door hanger is coloured with the new Letraset alcohol inks in Plum as it is an exact match with the Plum promarker (you could also colour the wood with your promarker, but the alcohol ink does it much quicker)
All the different ribbons and clear adhesive stones are coloured with promarkers too.
the greeting is from Inkadinkado and white embossed.
