Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Distress Inks & Versafine Clair Inks.

Hello there, 

It's Fabulous Friday and I hope you are all well. 
You may know, that the proprietors of 'Visible Image', (Helen and Mark Alexander), had their 3rd wedding Anniversary this week, this is the card I made for them, using some of their awesome stamps and stencils.

The stamps I used were In your HandsAlphabetical, and Scripted Streets,
and the stencils I used were  Collision and Stars & Stripes.

I started the background using some Distress Ink re-inkers, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, and Picked Raspberry, putting a couple of drops onto my mat, one colour at a time, spritzing with a little water, then gently dipping the white card into it, until I had achieved the colours I wanted. I then stamped randomly with the Script stamp, using some Blue Versamark Clair ink, on top of this I placed the Collision Stencil, and randomly blended through it with a light layer of Salty Ocean Distress ink, then some Mustard Seed in other places.

Using just the Stars of the 'Stars and Stripes' Stencil, with a palette knife, I added some translucent embossing paste, adding stars to the whole of the background, when it was dry, I dabbed some silver holographic gilding flake, so it stuck in places.
On a separate piece of white card, I stamped the hands, one using a combination of Summertime and Charming Pink, and on the other a combination of Warm Breeze and Paradise ( all Versafine Clair Inks ) and fussy cut them, gluing them to some black card, and fussy cutting again. I stamped the sentiment with Black ink, and again fussy cut. I stamped the 'Happy anniversary' sentiment, using the incredibly useful 'Alphabetical stamp set'.
To finish off, I adhered all the elements to the background using 3D glue gel, and added some eyelashes with a pen to the pink hand, and Glossy Accents to both eyes.

  1. An anniversary card with a difference, I am sure they will love this!!

  2. Unusual and very eyecarching. Great idea to use their own products on a card for them.
