Visible Image Sunday is here again.!

Hi Folks

How the cotton candy are you all? I have been creating again and I don't mean having a moan... I have been getting all inky with the gorgeous Visible Image stamps.
what do you think?

I liked it and all with just a couple of colours Distress ink and several stamps. Here's how .

  • I took a piece of off white card and Black archival ink and stamped the Imagine ,Dream Inspire stamps in rows over the page. Once done I cut the best bit which was 18 cms long x 11cm high.
  • Dry and rub and anti static pad all over. Then use Versamark and clear embossing powder and stamp the Grunge flourish in two of the corners.
  • Choose two contrasting colours, here I used Seedless preserves and Peeled paint. and randomly colour your first layer , then add a second layer ,making it darker at the edges and corners.
  • Dry and rub the colour off the clear embossing with a dry piece of kitchen towel. Use anti static again. Then I took the Bronte border and silver embossing powder and added some writing here an there again random is the word.
  • Next I stamped three Dragonflies and embossed in white. I also stamped a few of the Tall grasses in black archival just along the bottom and side areas.
  • Once dry I cut this sheet into three pieces each measuring 11x6cms and then stuck them down with foam to raise them a little onto black card, leaving a small gap in between and around them.I then added a piece of black crochet ribbon to the top with gold glitter in the gaps onto the tape for sparkle.This was then mounted onto white card.
  • I took a smaller piece of white card and inked again with same colours and stamped 'It takes a long time to grow an old friend' and mounted that onto black card and used foam to attach to the main card in the centre. 
  • I tied a twine bow and used a pink dazzler in the centre with some flat back gems in the corners 
  • Lastly I stamped out the dragonfly onto the same inks and poured on some purple sparkle embossing powder and heat set, I cut it out and inked the edges in black. I then added this to the sentiment. I drew some small faux stitches around the sentiment and some small white dots along each blade of tall grass. 
Here is another angle
