Nice to see you all. Huge thank you 's to all that entered our Big Pink event for Breast Cancer awareness and a welcome to any new visitors as well as huge hugs to all my lovely ladies that are always here.
Sorry you all didn't see me last week but I am u an running for this week with some lovely cards etc.
As of next week my Visible Image day will be moving to Tuesdays so it will be Visible Image Wednesday no more and Visible Image Tuesdays instead haha.
Hers is today's card , You know how I like to add some masculine themes in from time to time as I genuinely enjoy doing them so today's card is just that using some wonderful stamps as always from Mark and Helen.
Do you like my little scroll haha..
So with out further chatter here is how I put this one together.
I started by stamping The Reason to smile stamp out twice on off white card with Black archival ink. Leaving a gap on the other side of the card.
I ripped toward me on the right hand side only and created an exposed edge to the paper.
I inked the edges of the whole piece first with Tea dye and then with Vintage Photo, I then used the same Vintage Photo and stamped the script from the Revolution set over the entire background.
I gave the edge another layer of ink on the raw edge only and used a piece of ribbon like a measure down the centre Vertically.
I added All this to black card and matted that onto off white card before setting this part aside to work on the little scroll.
So I took a length of the same off white card and stamped The reason to smile with Vintage Photo onto it once. I used scissors to ruff the edges and create some ripped raw pieces and inked them all wit the same combo of inks as before. I rolled the top of the scroll back work and the bottom forward around a pokey tool and then I took two new little eyeshadow applicators and ripped off the end sponges , I added some Treasure gold to the ends and glued them inside the rolled up sections , I created a little mat with the same off white and black card
Here is the side View.
Back to the base section I wrapped lots of hemp string around the card vertically and secured at the back with tape and then gave the card another mat and layer of black and off white to complete the base.
I added the feather to the left over the writing and mounted the scroll on foam and added that also to the base.
I tied a bow with the same ribbon and added that to the bottom right over the string and covered the knot with a sparkler which looks like concrete. I finished off with old watch parts I had laying around and a key also.
So this is the finished card, What do you think?
The sets I used on this one are.
Have a great Wednesday my friends.
Lots of love
