Visible Image Wednesday

Hi my lovelies

Hope you are all well and enjoying the warm weather, It is so nice to walk into work with the sun shining and the feeling of warmth on your skin isn't it. No coats and brollies haha.

I have a little card today created with just one back ground stamp and two sentiments to keep it simple and show you how you can layer again on the backing and then let the gorgeous sentiments speak for themselves.

Here is today's card

So lets get started on how to put this one together. It is of a fairly easy level so can be put together quite quickly if you needed to.

To start I stamped with embossing ink and the Retro dots Background hand held not on a block and randomly stamped around the edges using clear embossing powder I then heat set it and that is the shiney dots you can just see in the above picture.

Next I took a couple of inks dusty concorde and spiced marmalade i believe and started to add some inking down on paper just to get the first layer into the card.

 I added a 2nd layer of ink and then took the retro dots and used the same inks to add a little tone on tone dots in the background too.

 Then I took a very dark brown ink and edged all around the card to just bring the eye in a little. i also took my water spray and spritzed the card and dripped water onto the ink and blotted off to create some large drips too.
 Next I stamped the gorgeous sentiments I chose to use on this one. 

 Then made a double mat for the whole thing to sit on.

I added some pretty thick foam to the back of the inky piece and added it to the backing this would work either horizontally or vertically which ever way as I kept the pattern fairly neutral in style.

 I took the sentiments from earlier and inked the edges slightly with the marmalade and walnut stain inks then added a small black mat so they didn't get lots in the inky backing.

 Adding that same thick foam to the back of those two pieces I got both little sentiment flags on board

Here is Believe which fits perfect with many other stamp sets within the Fabby Visible Image range too.

This was one of the new fabulous June launch sentiments and I love them all they are so different from anything else out there and we love unique don't we folks.

well I hope you liked this weeks card here is a last look before I show you the stamps I used.

All I added was some simple pearls to the corners these are 6mm in size. I kept it all about the words as they mean a lot to me. If you are a journalling or scrap booking person wouldn't this be absolutely fabulous wording for that.

 Believe/Follow your dreams.

So that was this weeks stamps sometimes it just needs to be really simple and clean and doesn't need anything else and other time I like to be really detailed too Its good to be versatile isn't it.

Ok folks I will see you all tomorrow with another card, Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Best wishes to all
