Imperfect Butterfly

Good Evening and Happy Friday to  you!

Wow what a busy and very exciting week we have had… Mark has been creating some incredible new stamps for release early in 2018! Cannot wait to show you!!!

Meantime, Pauline Butcher is here with some gorgeous inspiration for you today…

Hello there,
 
Here I am again with another ‘Visible Image’ Fabulous Friday project.



This one is very easy to achieve, and I’ve used this technique at some of my recent Inky Workshops.




It would work with quite a few of the fantastic Visible Image silhouette stamps, but I chose to use the beautiful butterfly out of the Live Life Now set:




and the sentiment is from the Imperfection is Beauty set:




The card stock I used is Watercolour card, and I heat embossed the large butterflies using Wow Bright White embossing powder.  I then sprinkled some Brushos onto the card and spritzed with water, adding more colour and more water to get the effect I wanted, I then left this to dry naturally.




Once dry, I added the smaller butterflies using a Distress Ink, then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using Ebony embossing powder from Wow.


Thanks for visiting,
Hugs
Pauline xxxxx

Grungy Butterfly

Hi! Thanks for visiting our blog today! It’s been a very busy start to the week here.. packaging lots of gorgeous stencils, designing awesome new stuff for 2018 and of course packing and sending lots of orders to our wonderful customers and retailers! We’ve also been planning our October shows on Create and Craft TV… get the 27th & 28th in your diary!

Today we have some superb inspiration for you from Eileen Godwin…

Hello – I’ve been playing with Distress Oxide Inks whilst trying to create a birthday card for my friend Elaine (aka Archie).




I’ve used:
The reverse, white side, of Centura Pearl card
A Tim Holtz Stencil ‘Shatter’ along with some DecoArt Media Crackle Paste
Faded Jeans, Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks
Plus, one of my favourite stamps from Visible Image




the Butterfly from the ‘Live Life Now’ set and Black Archival ink.


I wanted a sort of abstract ‘look’! So, after the paste was dry I squished the inks onto my mat then dabbed,
painted and dribbled the inks onto my cardstock, along with a little water until I was happy with the result
before stamping the Butterfly image twice to finish.

The ‘friend’ stamp is from my stash.


Thanks for looking today.

Back soon.
