Butterfly Wishes Joseph’s Coat Technique

This is an old technique, but brand new to me. I saw Bruno Bertucci doing this and I had to try it. You can see his video here . I had great fun, but got very messy ๐Ÿ˜†

What is your favourite technique? Do you love a messy Technique or hate it? For me as a mum of five (eldest is 28 and youngest is 13), Grandma of two littles ones, aged 5 and almost 3 and a Rainbow Guider (Youngest members of Girlguiding UK at 5-7 year olds), mess comes with the territory. I have always enjoyed messy crafts and projects, but my husband who is autistic hates mess. It’s a miracle we have been married for 25 years ๐Ÿ˜†

Until next time, happy crafting

When we have a new catalogue the Pootlers team do a swap using items in the new catalogue. This was the card that I sent out to my group. It was a lot of fun to do as the background was made using the Shaving Foam Technique.

A little Lace Emboss Resist card

A little Lace emboss resist

Whilst the large flower inย  this set is gorgeous, I wanted to do something with the pretty little one, so decided on the emboss resist technique. I started with pastel colours and then moved on to blues and greens as my favourite colour is green.

Small Ornate Garden Box

small Ornate Garden box side

The foil paper in this Suite is so lovely, I wanted to do something that showed it off and didn’t cover it. I kept to a simple little Whisper White box, but used gold foil to accent it. I am really please with how this turned out, especially as everything I touched today was going wrong ๐Ÿ˜† I think it would make a very lovely wedding favour.
