Pauline Butcher inky workshop using Visible Image stamps.

Went to my first workshop with Pauline Butcher last week.
It was an inky workshop so we got messy.
I really enjoyed it and will be back for more.
Here are my makes

The stamps are visible image.
Pauline had a great selection and i choose these. 

The backgrounds are the shaving foam technique ( shown on previous post)
I took a good selection of dylusions inks to use.

The dog is a sweet poppy stencil, with distress inks, paste and mirco beads

This was a fab technique with bright inks, clear embossing powder and black ink.
I coloured the ribbon to match, matted onto pink card and added some gems.

Hope you enjoyed my makes. xx
