Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Wow embossing powders and Stickles.

Hello friends,

I am doing this page of my blog, from very sunny Swanage, I am relaxing on my holibobs, so just a quick one.

This is my DT inspiration for the new Visible Image Challenge, the theme for July is 'Anything Goes', an easy one for you all to take part in and maybe win £20 of  fantastic new stamps.
 It is also the card that I made for the lovely Helen Michelle's Birthday last week, using the fabulous wings from 'Fae Hope Set', Bronte ScriptGrounge FlourishTall Grass, and sentiment from Happy Birthday Set.

I stamped the wings onto card and coloured with Promarkers, and fussy cut them I stamped them again onto heat resistant acetate with Versamark, and heat embossed with black powder, and fussy cut them too, then glued the acetate over the card and added Stickles for sparkle.

The background is Distress inks, with random stamping of the Bronte script, then flicking with water. I stamped the Tall grass and Grunge flourish at the bottom, and with a clear embossing pen made some small circles, added powder and heat embossed, I added stickles for that bit of sparkle.

The larger background was done in the same way, but using a lighter touch !!

I attached the wings with glue gel, and made a body using perfect pearls, the finishing touch was the Happy Birthday, which I stamped once in black ink, and then again offset in Versamark, and heat embossed it, giving a sort of 3D look.

I hope I have inspired you to join in our Challenge, as I said before, such an easy theme 'Anything Goes'. Check out the rules and see the other DT members inspiration HERE.
