Born To Dance

Hi there! So sorry our blog has been neglected of late! It has been a crazy busy time with the UK trade show last week and our TV show next week!

Pauline is here today to share some absolutely stunning inspiration with you…

I’ve used another of those awesome new Visible Image stamp sets for my share for this week,
the beautiful ‘Born to Perform‘ set.

2017-02-25 Visible Image - Ballerina stamp - born to perform - Pauline Butcher

I have kept it quite plain, as I wanted the ballerina to really stand out, so I stamped the image using Versamark,
and heat embossed it using black embossing powder, then just using a couple of colours of Distress ink,
I blended them around her. I added the stars and the sentiments, again heat embossing with black.

Then came the fun bit, blinging it up, lol….. Stardust Stickles inside the stars,
and on top of the Tutu, whilst the Stickles are still wet, I added soome different coloured glitters.
I am holding another ‘Pauline’s Inky Workshop’, 
in Warwick, on Sunday March 12th, 10am – 4pm, £25 per person,
we will be making 3 colourful cards using various inky techniques,
 along with some awesome Visible Image Stamps, some Donna Downy stencils, and some Stamps by Ryn.
Please contact me if you are interested ……. 
Thanks for visiting, hugs, Pauline xxxxx

Wow! Your tutu is incredible Pauline!!! Absolutely beautiful card thank you ♡

Isn’t our ballerina fabulous… it’s all in the detail, from the shading on the silhouette to the ink spraying off her tutu!
