Visible Image Stamps, Sizzix Accordion Flip 3D Die, Distress inks, Perfect Pearls and Glossy Accents.

Hello again friends,

I can't believe that this time last week I was flying up to Aberdeen on this plane for the weekend, it was a tad turbulent, lol !!!

 I went with lovely Helen and awesome Mark from 'Visible Image', to conduct a Demo Day on the Saturday, and we ran a workshop on the Sunday. We met some fabulous people, and we were able to show them how fantastic 'Visible Image' stamps really are.

This is Mark (Owner, designer and maker of 'Visible Image Stamps') and myself, getting ready for the Demo Day, at 'The Papeterie' Craft shop.

Anyway I digress, lol, I am here today to share a card I've made, using some great 'Visible Image' stamps, I hope you like it.

I recently bought myself an Accordion card die, so thought I'd christen it using Visible Image stamps, then made a box to put it in.

This is the front of the card.

The middle of the card.

And the back.

The stamps I used were....
I covered the frame of the card with the damask stamp, using Tumbled glass Distress ink, and around the edges I used Vintage Photo. I created little scenes using various Distress inks, and the stamps, and popped on pink Liquid pears as blossom and flowers, and used glossy accents here and there.

There's still time to enter the Visible Image Challenge, for a chance to win £20 worth of new stamps, this months theme is 'Anything goes'. Take a look at the DT inspiration, and enter HERE.

If you haven't got a blog, don't worry, you can enter on the 'Visible Image' wall of the Facebook Group, HERE.

Thank you muchly for taking the time to pop by, your comments are always so inspirational.

Take care till next time,

Big hugs, Pauline xxx
