Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Wow Embossing powders,

Hi my Crafty friends,

It's Friday, and my turn to showcase some of the
 fabulous Visible Image stamp's that are available.

On this Christmas  5"x 8" card, the stamps I've used are,

The background was stamped first with the Gaudete stamp, using Distress ink, I then spritzed it with water, left it for a few seconds, blotted with kitchen roll then dried it with a heat tool.
I then stamped over it randomly with the Snowflakes using Versamark ink and white embossing powder, heated with my heat tool, and cooled.
Repeat the process, but this time use blue embossing powder. Gently ink over the background with Distress ink, leaving white patches.

The Vintage Santa was stamped using Versafine black ink, and coloured with Distress inks.
I cut him out using a spellbinders round die, added distress ink around the edges, used Cosmic Shimmer 'dries White' glue for the falling snow, and also to give definition to his beard, I then added a touch of stickles for that bit of sparkle. I finished off with some ribbon, and a snowflake stamped onto Shrink Plastic.

You still have time to enter the December Challenge 'Christmas', pop over to the blog and see the DT's inspiration, and enter HERE.

Just in case I don't get to blog before the Festive Season, I'd like to thank you for all the interest and support you have shown me, over the last year.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas,

Big hugs, Pauline xxxxx
