Imperfect Butterfly

Good Evening and Happy Friday to  you!

Wow what a busy and very exciting week we have had… Mark has been creating some incredible new stamps for release early in 2018! Cannot wait to show you!!!

Meantime, Pauline Butcher is here with some gorgeous inspiration for you today…

Hello there,
 
Here I am again with another ‘Visible Image’ Fabulous Friday project.



This one is very easy to achieve, and I’ve used this technique at some of my recent Inky Workshops.




It would work with quite a few of the fantastic Visible Image silhouette stamps, but I chose to use the beautiful butterfly out of the Live Life Now set:




and the sentiment is from the Imperfection is Beauty set:




The card stock I used is Watercolour card, and I heat embossed the large butterflies using Wow Bright White embossing powder.  I then sprinkled some Brushos onto the card and spritzed with water, adding more colour and more water to get the effect I wanted, I then left this to dry naturally.




Once dry, I added the smaller butterflies using a Distress Ink, then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using Ebony embossing powder from Wow.


Thanks for visiting,
Hugs
Pauline xxxxx

Fluttering Butterflies

Hi there! Thanks for coming to check out today’s inspiration here on the blog. Jane Tyrrell is here with her latest project…


Good Evening all,


I hope you had a lovely weekend? We enjoyed a family BBQ at my daughter’s, it was so good to all get together with both sides of the family. It was the 10th year they have hosted it..how the years fly by.

I am here with my weekly post for Visible Image, and some new inspiration.
The bees have been humming around and I have seen lots of butterflies but they seem to vanish whenever I try to grab my camera!


However one found it’s way into my kitchen…or perhaps this might be a pretty moth?




My card today was inspired by these amazing insects and the sunny colours in my garden, and uses (in my opinion) the best butterfly stamps on the market.  Visible Image have sold these gorgeous butterflies for some years.


I also used the brilliant time swirl as I had the idea to have the tiny butterflies emerging from the end of it.



These were the stamp sets I worked with:










I created a distress oxide background



 ..I love the effects you can get with the Oxides…a real splash of colour here



I stamped the time swirl. I also stamped and embossed some butterflies on some inky mop up card and fussy cut them out.


I added the butterfly shadow and stamped the small butterfly silhouettes emerging from the time swirl. The sentiment is from the Unicorn set. I stuck the fussy cut butterflies over the shadows which gives such a cool 3D effect.









We hope to see lots of you joining in with this month’s “a splash of colour” challenge over in the Visible Image Facebook group. You could be the random winner of a £40 coupon to spend in the shop!


Thanks so much for stopping by today and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me. Keep cool and carry on crafting.


Back soon!
Bye for now,
Jane x
