It’s Fabulous Friday!

Hello again! Thank you so much for visiting us here on the blog today. Pauline Butcher is here to brighten the day with some really vivid projects…

Hi there you lovely lot,

It’s Fabulous Friday, and I’m off to the seaside for a well earned rest for two weeks!

These are some of the cards I demonstrated on Create & Craft TV for Visible Image a couple of weeks ago.

My first card features sentiments and the inky ballerina from Born to Perform and the fantastic large inky splat from Somewhere in Time.



The next card was made using stamps from the Live in the Moment set. The background was created with distress inks blended over the clear embossed sentiment, which were then spritzed with water. The ripple stamps were also stamped in distress inks, and the beautiful dragonfly was stamped onto acetate and coloured with inks and stickles before being adhered to the card.

This card features stamps from the Dare to Swim set. The background was created by dragging distress ink pads down the card. The beautiful jellyfish was embossed onto acetate, the sentiment and bubbles were also embossed. The weeds and fish were stamped in two colours to give the appearance of depth.

All the stamps on the next card can be found in the Imperfection is Beauty set. The background flowers were stamped using distress oxide ink. The sentiment and stem were stamped in black versafine, and the flowers were all stamped then fussy cut, and layered up using foam pads for dimension. 

The vibrant background on my final card was created with distress inks which were spritzed with water. The butterflies and words were embossed in black to make them really stand out against the colour.


Thanks for visiting, and see you after my holiday!
