Visible Image Stamps, Brusho Crystal Paints, Distress Inks, Black Embossing Powder, Stardust Stickles & Glossy Accents.

Hello Lovely Crafty friends,

Here's my weekly inspiration, using some of the fantastic
 Visible Image stamps available.

On this 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" card, the stamps I've used are.......

I'm sorry, but the photo's are not the best, the day's have been so dark, that I've had to rely on a daylight bulb, lol !!!!

I started off making the background, mixing Brusho's separately with a drop of water in a palette, 3 colours, yellow, turquoise and red.
 I painted them randomly, letting them merge if they wanted to. when that was dry, using a paintbrush, I flicked the left over paint all over it. I then stamped the dots, just holding it in my hand, again randomly, using Picked Raspberry distress ink. I used the same method with the script stamp, but used Peacock Feathers, and then again with Mustard Seed.
 I stamped the sentiment with Versamark, and heat embossed in black.

I stamped the butterflies onto white card with Versamark and heat embossed again using black powder, coloured them with distress inks, fussy cut, shaped them and added Stickles.

For the Woman, I sprinkled a small amount of red Brusho onto the card, and spritzed with water, running it to the left, don't worry if you have white card showing, this adds to the splattered look, and can be coloured with Salty Ocean Distress ink. 
Totally dry it, then add a swipe with an anti-static bag, and stamp the Woman with Versamark, and heat emboss in black. I then added a coat of glossy Accents to all the black, to give extra dimension, when it was dry I added Stickles to bling it !!!!! 
As you can see I rounded the corners, and mounted it onto black and blue card stock, before adding to the card with glue gel, then added the shaped butterflies with glue gel too.
