Guest Designer Pauline!

Good morning stampers :)

Today I'm introducing our February Guest Designer.. PAULINE!

Here's a little introduction by Pauline herself.. Hi, I'm Pauline Butcher, I live in historical Warwick, England, with my partner Robin, and have three grown up sons, one of which is still home with us. I have my own craft room (my haven), where I can often be found getting quite messy, lolI have been crafting, in one way or another for most of my life, (dressmaking, drawing, sewing, sugar craft and cake making) but discovered a passion for sticking bits of coloured card and paper together, twelve years ago. My addiction to stamps, stamping, and everything inky, became apparent 3 years ago, there is nothing more rewarding than making something beautiful, out of a few scraps of inked paper and card, for people to enjoy.

And now I have two awesome pieces to share of hers!

6"x 6" white card. Rose background stamped twice in 'Momento ink' in 'London Fog'.
One image left plain, one image coloured using  'Promarkers',   Rose Pink, Pastel Pink and Blossom. Girl In Polka Dot Dress, stamped in 'Momento ink' in 'Tuxedo Black'. and coloured using 'Promarkers', Rose Pink, Blossom, Pastel Pink, Satin, Putty, Sunkissed Pink, Ice Grey 1, Ice Grey 2. Chevron Banner and Be Adorable, stamped using 'Tim Holtz Distress Ink' in Pickled Raspberry. I also used a 'Tonic Border punch' for the lace, and added a few gems.

Garland Heart stamped using Momento ink Tuxedo Black and coloured using 'Promarkers' in Berry Red, Cocktail Pink, Antique Pink, Arctic Blue, Pastel Blue, Soft Green, Bright Green, Buttercup, Canary, Caramel, Cinnamon, Cocoa. Retired Couple stamped and aged using 'Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage Photo'. Large heart was cut using an 'X-cut' die, and coloured using 'Tim Holtz Distress ink' in .Squeezed Lemonade', spritzed with 'Perfect Pearl mist' in Forever Blue. Also used, 'Bazzill Basics Paper - Antique script, American Seam Binding, 'Tim holtz, Chit chat stickers' and a gem.

Thanks so much for sharing your work Pauline!
Check back in two weeks to see more beautiful work by her :)
