Marvellous Monday with Visible Image

It felt a little strange not blogging for you on Friday but I know that Pauline was there looking after Friday for me! 

So what do we have for you today on this totally Marvellous Monday? A little number made with the fantastic INKognito butterfly stamp, one of the sentiments from Imagine  Dream Inspire and a few grunge polka dots. On the face of it that sounds fairly 'plain' but oh my goodness just LOOK at those colours!

I received a parcel a few weeks ago containing the wonderful Brusho paints. They quickly became my #1 best friends. I played for hours just painting A3 pieces of white card. I now have a hefty pile of deliciously coloured card just waiting to be adorned.

Some of you may say it is similar to the one I showcased a few weeks ago but to be fair there is no way anything you do with Brushos is ever going to be 'the same'. 

I started by picking a point on the piece of coloured card I had chosen to use where the butterfly image would stand out. I used jet black archival ink. It was a new pad so it gave a really good image. Of course the stamps from Visible Image are deeply etched and give a fantastic impression every time, but there is something satisfying about the intense blackness of a new ink pad. 

I trimmed the background card to the size of my card blank and used just the splodge bits of the butterfly stamp in a few places around the edges of the card. I fancied using some dots so I added 2 areas of dots in opposing corners. Using a bit of the off cut of coloured card I stamped the Dream sentiment.

To give the piece a little more visual texture I used a fine white ink to highlight some areas and a fine black marker to add depth to the dots. I did a squiggly line around the edge of the card and did some freehand 'straight' lines around the sentiment.
