Good morning. Today I am sharing a set of quick and easy butterfly cards created using the large Patchwork Butterfly stamp from Chocolate Baroque.
The first: Wet card and sprinkle Brusho onto butterfly, spritz again to encourage colour burst. Leave to dry naturally for an intense effect, or use a heat gun to reduce the colour intensity slightly. Add some Glossy Accents onto some areas for added interest
The second and third done by colouring the stamp with watercolour pens and overstamping onto the black image. Tip: Colour the stamp directly with pens, then lightly mist with water to activate before stamping. Can stamp several times from one colouring of the stamp – misting again between each re-stamping. Great for batch making. To encourage more colour bleed I also spritzed the card after stamping the coloured image to give a nice watercolour effect.

Good evening. I just had to share what I bought with my Christmas present – voucher from World of Wool.
A set of acid dyes – I am going to have some experimental fun with these and have lots of fibres and yarn that I want to colour.
I also got some silk organza and chiffon along with netting. I have been meaning to give Nuno felting a try for ages. All set to go – yay!
I just had to get a bag of Botany Lap Waste. I always love getting these – a surprise lucky dip of fibre. I literally squeal with delight when sorting through the array of gorgeous colours and textures. Fibres included mainly a mix of Merino Wool but also included are other wools and mixed fibres such as silk, bamboo etc. I wish that I could provide ‘touchy feely screen’ too – such a joy!
They also sent a freebie bag. Oooh I am a happy bunny x.
Many questions have been asked about the All Counties Craft Challenge so I thought that I would set up this page in way of explanation and to give you an idea of how to get involved. First let̵…
