First, I would like to pass on a BIG THANKS from all the
Visible Image team.
We were thrilled with the number of people that completed the blog hop and totally amazed by your generosity.
I need to also announce my personal blog winner. I numbered all the valid entries and used the number generator to pick out the winning comment.
The winner of my prize is Jackie Trinder. Well done!
Contact me with your details Jackie and I shall pop the card in the post. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS. MUCH APPRECIATED. So, here is today's project. Another Christmas number for you this time featuring the poinsettia stamp set.
I used Brushos as usual for my colouring medium and brought everything together with gold embossing powder. The poinsettia leaves already have a script pattern on them which goes really well with the script stamp from the Revolution set.
The first thing I need to do is thank you all very much for taking part in the
Visible Image PINK blog hop.
My next task is to tell you that I shall be closing the comments on my special give-away on my blog hop page. Last chance to get your comment added and be in with a chance to win one of my cards. See my blog hop post for details.
And now onto CHRISTMAS!!
I think it is ok to mention it now don't you?

You might already know that VISIBLE IMAGE have been raising funds for Breast Cancer Care through the month of October and as part of the BIG EVENT at the end of this week we have all decided to work with PINK as our colour theme.
I have gone all out for my project today, well, I don't ever do subtle do I? I used Dylusions mister inks on this card and the colours are very intense. But they fit the brief, which is to create in pink.
Here are the links and images of the stamps I used for this project.
Welcome to my usual Monday spot for Visible Image.
I have been having a look through some of my old stuff and saw this little gem which didn't get published last year.
It is still such a cool technique and it is nice to revisit some of my older projects. It means that new visitors to me and Visible Image don't miss out on something!
I have been busy working on a special project for Breast Cancer awareness so my time has been short but I am sure you don't mind me using this? More about the special event project next time.
So, I started with a nice crisp piece of white card. Using those pots of inky paint from Pinflair called Gentle Blends, I applied colour to the daisy silhouette from the Happy Birthday set in the More Than Words range. I used a sponge to apply the colour directly to the stamps. I stamped the first time onto my base card and then did a second stamping onto a separate piece of white card. This gave me a vibrant first impression and a dull, light second impression.
I then used the seeded flower head silhouette from the Thinking of You set, again from the More Than Words range to overstamp the coloured daisies in black ink.
On the piece of card that I had done the second impression stamping I used black ink to stamp the sentiment. All pieces were layered onto black card and the sentiment was added to the main card using foam pads to raise it up.
