Marvellous Monday with Visible Image


So, what do you fancy doing this week? I  officially have NO PLANS, my diary is clear for the whole week!!! No electricians, plumbers or  building inspectors are due to visit me. My kitchen has been installed and all the plates, pots, pans, fancy electronic gizmos and such like have been placed in their new homes. All I need to do now is remember where things are! For weeks I have been living in a state of flux. Bare essentials kitchen was set up in the hall way and shock horror, I had to do washing up by hand!! Balance has been restored and I can now get on with an almost 'normal' life. Nice! 

Right, here we are on Marvellous Monday and I have a card for you made using some of the totally awesome 'More than Words' stamps from Visible Image. These top quality photo polymer stamps are brilliant to use as they are deeply etched giving a brilliant result time after time. Like the other stamps in this range the flower heads are separate from the stems so you can make the flowers look more natural by bending the stem. This is how I made the bunch look like the flowers had just been picked by a little person and thrust in your face with a beaming smile! 

I used the Thank You
and some paler flowers on the insert.
I started with the background. I recently bought a 'puffer thingy' from Tim Holtz. It is designed to use with the distress ink pens but me being the rebel, I just used it to puff some inks around the page! I used an orange and grey/blue ink. I love orange and black, such a striking combination of colours. The flowers were then embossed on the centres of these spidery ink lines. As I mentioned the stems were added in a bunched format. 

As it was a lovely sunny day I managed to get the shots taken outside. The big terracotta pot in the background had to stay in the shot as it matched!

 Right, I am off to admire my new kitchen cabinets again, open and close a few doors to check what is in the cupboards, and switch the dishwasher on. Simple pleasures but I have missed these things!

Happy days!    Kim
