I want to say a huge thank you for all those amazing well wishes yesterday, I am so happy you are all here with me and I feel so very supported , we have some busy months ahead of us and I am so very glad I have all my crafting blog friends here with me along the journey . Bless you all.
As you know from previous months the first day of the new month is the start of the new Visible Image challenge and this month of March's theme is Your favourite Visible Image stamp. Well that sounds simple doesn't it but I love sooooo many it is so hard to choose, so I chose one of the very newest ones designed by Mark and the verse hand written by our own super talented writer Helen, what a power couple they are together. Plus they are such good friends too.
The winner at the end of the month of course wins £20 to spend on any Visible Image stamps they choose from the website. The rules are very simple too, just no digi stamps and use at least one of the Visible Image stamps especially with this months theme to use your favourite. So what are YOU waiting for. Pop over to the Visible Image blog and check it all out.
So here is my Fav and my inspiration piece for March.
Thinking of You .
Here is a close up of Helen's gorgeous words and I think they are just perfect. I used True white embossing powder on Periwinkle card for the verse.
Here are the colours I used.
I created two Visible image butter flies and coloured it with a Sakura metallic Gelly roll glitter pen as below and covered this in double sided adhesive too, tipping on micro beads and adding a bit more gel pen to some of the beads and added some grooves in the pattern too, I used small flat back pearls for the body and added them to opposite corners.
Sakura Gelly roll in metallic.
I used simple garden string to wrap around the mid section of the card and tie the bow much like the latest trends with twine bows but I wanted it to be more rustic along with the corrugated card.
Here are the embossing powders I used , clear for the resist under the inks and True white for the Periwinkle card and for the brown tag piece on the front of the card.
In this picture not only can you see the string bow which I added some glue and some glitter and gold gilding wax to, the button I also covered in Gold treasure gold but you can see all the mats and layers some raised on 3mm foam some on 1mm foam and some simply mat and layered with cosmic shimmer glue. The bottom layers are in Kraft card and one has been pierced using a piercing ruler and a 1mm pokey tool.
The Gorgeous Visible Image stamps used this time are.
Can you believe I just used the two stamps sets for this lovely sparkly card, even I had to double check myself lol when I had finished as It isn't like me to use just a couple.
Well I hope you enjoyed today's post and I hope you will remember to check tomorrow for another Visible Image card for my Design team day card.
