I'm doing my Visible Image Stamps blog early this week,
as I have swapped with my teamie Sue.
This is a card I created at the beginning of the month, using some fantastic Visible Image Stamps, for my Wonderful partner Rob's Birthday, he is a drummer, so these new music themed stamps are genius for him.
The Visible Image stamps I used were.......
I started off with a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" piece of Centura Pearl card, (I always use the mat side of the card for blending Distress Inks, it's nice and smooth).
I blended Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers onto it, making sure that there was Mustard Seed in the middle. I then used the star stamp from the Universal set and stamped 4 stars using the same colours tone on tone. I Stamped the drummer and the sentiment using Versamark, and heat embossed with black powder. Using the feather stamp from 'Angels are near', I stamped just the inky tip around the edges using the same colours, tone on tone again, and then another layer at the edge using Chipped Sapphire.
This would have made a great 6"x 6" card, but I decided to go bigger, lol.
So, on the mat side of a piece of Centura Pearl 7 1/4" x 7 1/4", and using the music stamp, I stamped from the middle out all the way around the card, again using the same 3 colours to co-ordinate with the topper. I then stamped the tip of the feather, again using Chipped Sapphire, around the edges. To finish off, I added Black Stickles to the sentiment, parts of the Drummer, and the edges of the larger background, I then mat and layered onto an 8" x 8" card blank.
