Colours of Capricorn

Hi there!! Thanks for visiting our blog today. We have been catching up with all the latest Design Team inspiration while ‘snowed in’ here in Wales!

Our final post today is a bright and colourful card from Pauline Butcher…


Hello, it’s me again,

it’s still cold..so another crafty day for me !!!


It’s my turn to share something cheerful, using some awesome Visible Image Stamps.





The stamp set I used here is 
Zodiac Capricorn






The background was created using Distress Ink re-inkers, although you could do the same with the ink pads too, just add some water, and using a paint brush, drip it down the card.





The Capricorn’s head is on a piece of card that I smooshed through the left over ink, and heat embossed the goat using black embossing powder.




I stamped on the background using Oxide inks.


Thanks for your visit.

Hugs Pauline xxxxxx

Kind Modest Virgo

Hello!!!! We hope you are enjoying all the gorgeous inspiration we have been sharing here on the blog this week! We stay with our ‘Written in the Stars’ theme for our next post, as Pauline showcases some of the demos she created on Create and Craft TV recently…

Hi there my Crafting friends,
 
It’s time for a little bit of ‘Visible Image‘ love! I have used the super ‘Zodiac Virgo‘ set on this simple and quick card…
 




I used some Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserve Oxide inks for the background, putting them onto a glass mat, and dragging the card through it, I then flicked some water at it, using a fan brush.

I stamped the Virgo head and all the sentiments, using Black Versafine Ink, onto a piece of white card, then coloured them with Distress Inks, and fussy cut them.

I stamped the dates and ‘Virgo’ along the bottom of the card, again using Black Versafine ink, highlighting them with a white pen, I also stamped the smallest constellation along the top. I then added all the elements with some 3D glue gel.


Thanks for visiting.
Hugs Pauline xxxxx

For my first sample I had a go at painting a little Galaxy… why not!



D6D76909-B7F6-4009-8ADC-D7D97C4936F2



It’s an 8’x8’ canvas and I’ve used a range of acrylic paint from Amsterdam and Pebeo dyna paints. It’s basically a mix of colours surrounded by dark navy and black and heavily flicked in white. The stamps were heat embossed using sparkling silver wow powder. The images were highlighted with gems and hey presto your own little galaxy!
