Today as you can tell by the title is of course Visible Image Wednesday and I have a lovely little clean and simple card tutorial for you which utilises some masking with the stamping using the fabulous Visible Image stamps of course and some colouring in with Promarkers and a little glittering too. This one is very clean and simple so should be great for beginners to intermediate levels although could easily be taken to the next level with extra wings or lace used to give another layer of wing, You could add more dimension with decoupage on the heart or even splitting the heart and adding some cogs emerging from the tear. You could add a zip to act like a body to the butterfly looking wings and have the sentiment poking out, you are limited only by your own imaginations and thought process so without further ado let me show you today's card.
I also stamped the little oil can from the OZ tin man set and drew in a drip over "the" in the sentiment I also drew a very loose puddle under the sentiment and coloured , shaded and highlighted the items.
Just a tiny bit on the left hand side maybe
So here are the three stamp sets I used to create this one for today.
Live the life. Fae hope set.
Aren't they gorgeous, I feel very lucky to have them all as part of my collection for sure.
Rumour has it there is an amazing new launch of gorgeous and amazing stamps coming very soon from our lovely Helen and Mark the brilliant team behind Visible Image too so keep your eyes open won't you as they sell so amazingly quick once they launch. Congrats to them also for a fabulous show at the NEC unfortunately I wasn't there in the end with my mum taking bad etc that weekend either but Mark and Helen did get to meet some of you and had a fabulous and very busy show. Yayyy.
Some of you have been emailing me re my mum which is very lovely of you all but this last two weeks I have struggled to answer any messages , blog posts etc so I am so sorry for this as I hate to miss your letters etc, You are all very special to me and I would hate you to think I wasn't going to reply but with mum on ICU this time I have been at the hospital from early until late everyday and have missed everything including shops etc so I am so very sorry about that. You will be pleased she has opened her eyes again now and is starting to have some tubes removed day by day but is still very poorly of course so it s really a case of making her as comfy as possible for as long as we can and hope she can go home again for a while ( they did warn us when she was in last time that she would have spells in and out of hospital and that she had 6 to18months at most when she left hospital last time, although when she went in they told us she would not make it last time, shes a fighter for sure but is very confused now too. We nearly lost her several times last week but today they took her feeding tube out and she had a mouthful of real food so that's progress hey guys.
NOW TO GROVEL LOVELIES
I have a huge mahoooosive apology to make to all my winners from the last giveaway to especially the ladies who have emailed as I really did just glance at my mail today and saw Id missed Pat and Mrs B's emails asking if there prezzies had been lost on royal mail , NOooooooo I am hugely enormously grovel grovel sorry but I hadn't got time in the last weeks as promised to actually get to the post office to queue to get the parcels weighed to post as I have around 8 to go off to you all. I have been picking my brother up each day and driving to Barnet (40 mins away) to sit with my mum everyday including the weekend and I have also had meetings with work about returning now my foot is settling a little more so its been crazy this past 3 weeks but you will all be glad to hear I am actually not at the hospital until today around 2 so I will be queueing at said post office and getting the parcels to you before the end of this week, I only hope when you see your gorgeousness arrive you can forgive me for the delays.
I truly am sorry Lovely blogglies its just it is only me who does it all here I don't have anyone posting for me or anything so am thankfully I was ahead with the actual blog posts. I hope you all understand and I'm sorry for any worry or concern caused , two of the nights we were called to hospital too so am pretty zonked just now but at least this time she is pulling through again. Sorry again guys for the delay.
Love to all
