Better & Better
Welcome to our new topic, the title
of which is a narrowly disguised
Get Well! So many of us have
folk who are ailing in some way
we thought we would devote this
week to offering cheery Get Well
wishes in a range of different styles
Today we have Hazel Harler with
us and her style is Vintage:
"Hi everybody. Good to be with you today!
I used these lovely Imagination Crafts rice papers
I glued the striped paper to the front
of the card blank then I tuned the card over
and used a waterbrush to wet the edges,
this enabled me to tare the excess paper
away from the card.
Using the water gave the rice paper
a nice frayed edge.
I cut the lace butterfly out of the
patterned rice paper.
I used a Carabelle Studio stamp and
leaf green archival ink to stamp
on the background.
The stamped background.
I coloured a white piece of card by swiping
the distress inkpads directly over the card
I stamped the Carabelle Studio tag and
butterflies onto the coloured card and
cut them out.
The sentiment is a Woodware stamp.
I glued the lace butterfly and some lacy fabric
to the card, then I added some lace,
tissue tape and stamped some script.
Before I glued the butterflies to the card
I covered them with stickles,
I also added some gems for the bodies."
Carabelle Studio stamps.

A great start to the week
Hazel. Thank you.
There's no end to what you can
stick on a card is there? Get
out your bit boxes and see what
inspiration lies within.
