It's not long til Christmas, I hope you are all more or less ready, and have time to relax. Me..... I think I shall be just about ready
on Christmas Eve, lol !!!!!
Anyway it's Friday, and my turn to share a bit of craftiness that I have made using a new set of Visible Image Stamps.
The new set of stamps is Believe, I also used Grunge Flourish, Bronte Border, Crackled Background and Butterfly.
I used a Tando chipboard heart, painted it with 2 coats of gesso. I used the Grunge Flourish first in two places, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed using clear powder, then buffed over it with red Archival ink. Using the same red ink I stamped the Flourish again. Then randomly stamped with Crackled Background and Bronte Border around the edges, again using Archival inks, adding the Believe to the middle of the heart. The butterfly was stamped and embossed onto Vellum and attached with glue gel.
I added some gems and coloured string as a hanger.
My second project, is a tag, using the same stamps.....
I stamped with Flourish, Crackled and Bronte using distress inks, cut out a Spellbinders heart, lined it up on the tag, and marked where the Flourish stamps would be and stamped it, I also stamped the Believe, did the same with Follow your Dreams, and attached them using Glue Gel, I used a wire heart from my stash, and popped it down behind. I stamped and heat embossed 6 Butterfly's onto Vellum, and cut out the lower wings, and made them into flowers using glue gel. The finishing touch was a few blobs of Ranger white enamel accents.
I hope you've all entered the Visible Image December Challenge, 'Christmas', and if not, why not, lol, take a look at the DT inspiration HERE.

See you soon, Hugs Pauline xxxxx
