  Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team.

Adding a pop of colour!

 Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. If you caught my post last week for Bumbleberry's you'll have seen the grey tulips I painted and so many people really love how it turned out.

Another Look At Water Colouring With Distress Ink, Changing Your Sub Straights...….. What Happens ?

Good Morning / Afternoon or Maybe Evening. Welcome A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog on using your Distress Inks to water colour with, and how easy the result were. I fell in love with the technique and have many more examples planned. I decided to change my water paper as Bristol (Strathmore) can work out expensive and many of you including me have far more standard water colour paper. I didn't expect any real difference, but I was very wrong! Here's both card projects. The top is on standard water colour paper smooth side and the bottom Bristol Smooth. When working on...

Hi There, Crafty Friends,  Apologies for my absence  last week, we had a slight family emergency with my daughter.
