Visible Image Stamps, Brusho Crystal Paints, Distress Ink, Stickles and Glossy Accents.

Hello again,

I'm back to tell you about the new Visible Image Challenge, which starts today, the theme for the August Challenge is 'Anything Goes', with a chance to win £20 on some fabulous new Visible Image stamps, and there are some stunning new ones to be had.

This is my bit of DT inspiration......get your dark glasses on, lol !!!!

This is a large 8 3/4" x 6 1/2" card, I was going to cut it down, but I loved the Brusho background so much, I left it whole !!!

The fabulous Visible Image stamps I used on this project were....... 
the small feather from Free your Imagination and Butterfly.

After sprinkling the Brusho's onto a piece of Centura Pearl card (the matt side), spritzing with water, helping it run a little, adding a bit more paint and water, and then drying completely.
 I stamped the Bronte script randomly in Picked Raspberry Distress ink, then stamped the Grunge Flourish using Festive Berries Distress ink, around some of the edges.

I then stamped Vision INKognito and the sentiment using Black Versafine ink, and the small feather in Salty Ocean Distress ink. To highlight the inside of the eye, and around the sentiment, I used thick household bleach and a small paintbrush. I coloured the iris with Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries, dried it, then added Glossy accents.

I stamped Classic Face using black Versafine, and carefully cut it out using my scalpel. I then spritzed the face with water again, and blotted with kitchen roll as I wanted it lighter than the background. Again I bleached the white of the eye and the lips, I also painted the Grunge Flourish stamp with bleach, and stamped over the face, I then matted it onto two lots of coloured card.
I stamped 6 Butterflies onto a piece of card and coloured with Brusho's, then fussy cut them. I cut all but one in half, and glued them around the edges of the hole, then glued the Face on to the top, adding the whole butterfly on top of that.

To finish off, I added Glossy Accents to the iris, stickles to the eye lid, the lips, and around the INKognito eye.

I hope you can understand my ramblings, please ask questions if you need to know more.

I hope you'll have a go at the Challenge, and if you haven't a blog, you can enter via the Visible Image Face Book Group.

Thank you for your interest, see you again soon,

Hugs, Pauline xxxx
