Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Liquid Pearls and Versafine ink.

Hi there,

Gosh, we are in to May already, the time seems to go so quickly, or is it me getting older, lol.

I'm sharing a card, created using Visible Image Stamps, there is such a fantastic selection, I never tire of using them.

I printed a picture of an old map from a free to print site, cut it to the size I wanted, coloured it with Distress inks, then scrunched it up and creased it, using Vintage Photo Distress inks on all the creases, I ripped the sides and again gave it a generous dose of Vintage Photo ink. When I eass happy with it, I attached it to some brown bazill card, which I had gone over with gilding wax.

I stamped the Castle onto a small tag, coloured it and the background with Distress inks, masked off the castle and stamped with the script stamp, then stamped the tree and added some pink liquid pearls.

Once Upon a Time was stamped onto a piece of card, cut out, and coloured.

'Imagine' and the 'birds' were stamped directly onto the map, and I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the butterfly.

The stamps used on this 6"x 8" card are.....
