Snowflakes on Sunday @ Visible Image Stamps

Hello! Thank you for coming to see us here on the Visible Image stamps blog today.

Sunday’s inspiration comes from the wonderful Kim Robertson today. Over to Kim…

Hello my lovelies

I thought I’d use my gorgeous Enchanting Snowflakes stamps from Visible Image this week and teamed them
with the classically timeless Christmas & New Year sentiment, keeping it pretty and fairly simple with
mica powders and embossing. I hope you like it…

Visible Image stamps - Enchanting Snowflakes - Merry Christmas & Happy New Year - Kim Robertson

I used two different tonal purples here in cardstock and used ivory embossing powder rather than
white to blend in the the ivory paper. I stamped out the smaller snowflake around the backing edge
of the frame piece of card with Versamark and used an interference colour Mica which looks silver
in certain lights and a bluey/lilac in other, very pretty. I also used the same mica on the edges of the flowers too.

Here is a closer look and you can now see the backing a little better and the lilac on the mica more.
I love purple and ivory or cream , I used those colours for my daughters bedroom and she still loves it.
I have never really been a Christmas red and green colour person but to me this is just gorgeous
in these colours, and the snowflakes are so crisp but still have that vintage feel to them. Gorgeous!

Here is a close up on the first little cluster with the bow and you can see the stem I cut off the little flowers
I twisted around a pokey tool to create a little curly q to add to the flower, and some other little stamens
just to make it a little more interesting.

I snapped this little corner so you can see the mica on the stamps in the backing here. Sooo pretty and sparkly in real life.
The cameras just never seem to pick up sparkle well unless it full on bling.

This was the 2nd little bunch in the top right of the card, you can also see the two colours in the card used on the layers in this one a little better.

Finally here is the longer shot to show the layers etc. I hope you like this one, the font is so clear and sharp to stamp with.
Aren’t the snowflakes pretty , I can also imagine them used with all the gorgeous colours of metal flakes out there now.

Lots and lots of love to all
