Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks and Wow embossing powder.

Hi All,

I hope you've all had a fabulous week, and the sunshine has reached you.

Today I am sharing some inspiration, using some more fantastic

The stamps I've used on this 8"x 8" card are.....

I started off using 3 colours of Distress inks randomly on the background, using a Distress tool, then stamping with the darkest colour using the Grunge Polka Dot, and then wrapping the Ripped Fishnet around my fingers, using the same colour ink, just kissing the background gently in places, then using the Bronte Script and the medium colour, again wrapping the stamp around my fingers, stamp randomly.

The topper was created using the same method, but using the colours far more gently, so they look lighter. I used a brown to stamp the grass, and a slightly darker blue for the flowers. The butterfly was stamped twice with versamark, and heat embossed with yellow powder, and fussy cut, the extra butterfly was cut shorter following the design, to give a different centre. I added the sentiment and a gem.

  1. The butterfly was the first thing to catch my attention on this card. I love how you've cut the second layer smaller to give the dimentional layer on top. Just lovely.

  2. Lovely card Pauline, colours would lift anyone's spirits. x

  3. Another stunner Pauline - it's so kind of you to share your techniques. Loving the backgrounds.
    It was great to see you and Maggie yesterday at the NEC. I'm so pleased that even though I've moved away it hasn't meant that we have had to lose touch.
