Visible Image Stamps, Brusho Crystal paints, Wow Embossing Powder, Glossy Accents, and Stickles.

Hi there,

Today I'm sharing a card I've made, using some fabulous Visible Image Stamps, a very simple card really. I made a background using Brusho's, I liked it so much I didn't want to cover it all, lol, I bet you've all done that too !!!!

I used the Brusho's on water-colour card, I spritzed the card with water, then sprinkled 3 colours on top, Blue, Yellow and Orange, spritzing to make them run into each other, it gave this cloudy day look. On a smaller piece of 
water-colour card, using similar colours of Distress ink, I mixed each colour with a small amount of water, and washed them over the card, adding more colour where I needed it.

The stamps I've used are............
Grunge FlourishClassic Face and 'Never give up on your Dream' from the Sunshine Set.

I stamped the curly bit of the Grunge Flourish a few times to the left on the larger coloured background, stamped the sentiment using Versamark, and heat embossed in Orange powder.

Then on the smaller piece of coloured card, I stamped the Classic Face using Black Versafine ink. Using thick bleach and a small paintbrush, I bleached the colour out of the eye, then added some blue and orange to the iris, when it was dry I added Glossy Accents, for a shiny eye. I coloured her lips with a 'Ripe Persimmon' Distress ink wash and to finish off I added orange Stickles to the flourish, for that bit of sparkle.
