Music on - World off

I seem to be acquiring quite a few stamps by Visible Image lately! Here's another card made with one of their stamps, this one again is great for teenagers' cards:

The background was made with Brusho powder. I sprinkled a couple of Brusho colours onto watercolour cardstock then spritzed with water to activate them. Rather than soak up the excess water with a paper towel I pressed another piece of cardstock over the top & made a ghost print - 2 for the price of one, I like that! ...

I used this ghost print as my background for the card:

The headphones & wording were stamped & embossed straight onto the background. I used a stamp from another set to make the border.

I hope you like it.
Thanks for popping by.

Take care,

Tam x

Gelli plate fun

I'm really into trying new techniques at the moment, the Gelli plate being the latest one! I had a fun afternoon with acrylic paints, random leaves from the garden & other bits & bobs round the house. Here's a few of the prints I pulled from the plate ...

I took one of the prints & used it for a card background:

I love this stamp of a girl jumping in the air - so carefree & full of life. I stamped the girl directly onto the background with versamark ink & heat embossed with Wow! powder. I stamped & embossed the sentiment in the same stamp set on white cardstock & fussy cut, gluing onto the background. I drew lines round the edge of the gelli print to give it a border.

I hope you like it.

Take care.
