Lavinia Stamps, Versafine Ink, Clean Colour Pens & Stickles.


Hi there, 
The July Lavinia Creative Challenge  started at the beginning of the Month, the theme this time is 'Childhood Dreams', for a chance of winning a fabulous £40 voucher to spend on goodies from the web shop, you need to get inking to get your entries in.



Because I was going on my holidays, and did'nt have a lot of time to make these samples, I fell back onto some awesome Lavinia Scene-scape backgrounds to stamp onto, they make cardmaking so easy.

So, the products I used on this card were.........


I stamped all the images with Vesafine Black ink, then coloured the Hive image, with some watercolour pens, I then used liquid pearls to add detail to the trees, and Stickles for the Fairy wings.


On this card I used.......


I stamped the main image, the fairies and the mouse with black Versafine ink, and stamped the ivy with green Versafine ink, coloured the house with watercolour pens, and then used Stickles and glitter to add dimension.

Thanks for dropping in, hugs, Pauline xxxxx

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Pebeo Dyna Paints, Distress Inks, and Wow EP.



Hi there,

I am back from my wonderful relaxing holiday, the weather just couldn't have been any better, I just wish I was still there, lol, but life must go on !!!!
It's Fabulous Friday , and time for me to share something I've made using some of the awesome Visible Image products. It was Helen's birthday (Mrs Visible Image) a couple of weeks ago, and this was the card I made her.......


The stamps I used on this card were......
Life is Beautiful, which is the hummingbird and the sentiment, and some background stamping, I made the flowers from the Visometry set, the circles from the Shape it Up set, and the Strobes Stencil.



I started by colouring the card with Mustard Seed Distress ink, then lay the stencil over the top, and blended through it with Picked Raspberry Distress ink. I then stamped the Hummingbird using Versafine Black ink, and randomly stamped the circles using Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.




I then stamped the Hummingbird again on a separate piece of card, again using Versafine Black ink, and using Pebeo Dyna paints, with 4 or 5 colours, I painted over the image, shading where it needed to be. When it was dry, I fussy cut it.
I stamped out the flowers in different sizes, coloured them in using some Sparkle Pens, then fussy cut them, layering up the sizes using 3D glue gel, to give dimension, and attached them to the card using 3D glue gel, cutting them to fit the card, I then added the painted Hummingbird. I stamped the sentiment onto some painted card, with Versamark, and heat embossed it with Wow Primary Parma Velvet.

Visible Image Stamps, Brusho's, Wow Embossing Powder and a White pen.




Hi there,

This is my last Fabulous Friday for a couple of weeks, as I am off for a well earned holiday, whoo hooo, so this is a couple of cards I made recently, for my Inky Workshops. I used the fantastic new stamp set from 'Visible Image',



I started off these cards, with a piece of heat resistant acetate, stamping the magnificent tree, and two of the owl's with Versamark, and heat embossed them with Black powder, I then used the 'Caught in Crystal' background technique, but used Brusho's for the colour, before adding the glitter and tissue paper. After they were dry, I mounted one onto black card, and attached it to the card blank with brads, the other one I enclosed it inside the card blank, after cutting an aperture. I added some white pen work, to make the images pop, then added a sentiment (also in the stamp set) to one of them, journal style.

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Distress Inks, Pebeo Dyna paints, Wow Embossing Powder & Stickles.



Hello again,

It' Fabulous Friday, and I'm going to share another lollipop plaque I've made, using some awesome 'Visible Image' Stamps and a Stencil.


I love making these plaques, the stamps I used on this one were......
the superb 'Create your Calm'
the seaweed and small fishes from 'Dare to Swim',
the script stamp from 'Scripted Streets',
the circles from 'Shape it Up'
and the stencil I used was....... 'Strobes'.

I glued all the lolly sticks together, and gave it a coat of white gesso, and dried it, I then blended Distress Inks over it randomly. Using some Versafine Clair inks, I stamped the Script, Circles and fishes, in coordinating colours. I then placed the stencil over it, and used some translucent paste through it, took off the stencil, and added some dry glitter, and left it to dry.
On some heat resistant acetate, I stamped and heat embossed the fabulous Seahorse, using Black embossing powder, I fussy cut it, then flipping it over, painted the back using some iridescent paints. While this was drying, using the same paints, I pounced my paint brush, so the colours randomly covered a piece of card, ready to stamp the sentiment and seaweed, and again heat emboss with black powder, and then fussy cut them. I added all the elements to the plaque using 3D glue gel.
To finish off, I used gold gilding wax around all the edges of the lolly sticks, added some micro beads for sand at the bottom, made holes in the top, for some rope to go through, and some white pen work and stickles to the seahorse.


I ran a workshop last week, using this fun lollipop stick technique, the amazing results from that, are on my previous blog, do check them out.
