'Create with your soul' from Visible Image

Bonjourno folks :D
I hope we are all well!

I know it's Saturday but I swapped my DT day this week with the fantastic Kay Dalton my teamie,
 because I had to go to the hospital on Tuesday, discharged now and my knee is getting better every day :)
Thanks again Kay :)

I'm rather addicted to one (ok ALL) of the stamps  I've used for today's blog......I love it.....It's purely AWESOME!
Designed and made by Mr Po(Mark) and written by Madge(Helen)
'Tis boooooiful' and at £4.99 a steal!!!

So without further ado.........

This stamp is the NEW 'Create with your soul'....
Isn't it ace?.....I love it :)

Now I wanted to make a canvas, I'd never done one before and it was a bit of a flop as I didn't realise i needed to gesso it first OOPS!....but watch this space I WILL WIN one day!

Anyway instead I had a couple of box frames I hadn't used, so why not put them to use?

I started off with a piece of textured water colour card and heat embossed 'Create with your Soul' in ebony wow and then heat embossed the retro dots background and grunge polka dot in heat it up's Silver pearl.
For the Grunge flourish I heat embossed this in wow ebony and apple red and also the crackled background....these are ALL amazing stamps and Visible Image have some real beauty background stamps!

Next I used 3 distress soot, festive berries and iced spruce, applied with small sponges.

For the outer framed matt I used the grunge flourish in wow ebony.
To finish with.....lots of metal embellishments, hearts, dragon fly, note,.flowers, pins and gems.
I made this for our bedroom :) and I LOVE it!

For my next box frame LOL the same technique but just with heat it up silver pearl, blazing red stazon ink and Royal purple for the grunge flourish (this stamp was made for this verse!
(They go together perfectly like Wills and Kate!)

For the background colours I used Victorian velvet and seedless preserves DI.

Finishing off with the gorgeous butterfly stamp and some pearls.

This next pic hasn't taken so great with the glass.

Lastly I made a card same technique again, used with grape wow embossing powder used for the verse this time and  seedless preserves and wild honey DI.
So as you can see....addicted! LOL

The verse is a must people its a dream to stamp as are all Visible Image stamps.
