Hi There,

It’s my day to share a project I’ve made using a Brand New ‘Visible Image’ stamp set, called Break Free.

This card is  8″ x 8″, so I cut a piece of Bockingford Hot Pressed Watercolour 300gsm paper 7″ x 7″ for my background, I spritzed it with water, then randomly added some drops of ‘Brea Reese’ liquid watercolour inks, in yellow, Magenta, Ultramarine and Ocean Green, I then spritzed with water again, and let the colours drip, wick and merge together. I left this to dry naturally.
Whilst the background was drying, I took another piece of Bockingford, and stamped three daisies, using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, then dried them with my Heat Tool, I then coloured them in, using Zig Clean Color watercolour Brush Pens, but I could have used a paint brush and the liquid inks instead. 
I then fussy cut the daisies and added some Stardust Stickles to their centres.


I also stamped the smashed Vase using a Versacraft pad, onto Bockingford, put  on ‘Wow’ Nice Ice Blue Embossing Glitter, thn heat embossed with my heat tool. I also stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink, again onto Bockingford.
Now the background is dry, using the smashed Vase stamp in my hand (not on a stamping block), and using Picked Raspberry Oxide Ink, I stamped all over the background, making sure that the stamping was all going the same way. I dried the background with my heat tool,  I then went over the background with an anti-static bag, and again using the smashed Vase stamp, but this time on a block, and I stamped in the middle of the background, using Versamark, and again heat embossed with the ‘Wow’ Nice Ice Blue embossing glitter.

The background was then adhered to a black card mat, and then onto a yellow card mat, and adhered to the 8″ white card blank.


I stamped three stems onto the background, using a green Oxide Ink, ready for the daisies to sit on, and using the smashed Vase image, that was heat embossed onto the Bockingford, I fussy cut the vase, and some of the smashed pieces, and adhered them to the main image, using 3D Glue Gel, to give dimension. I also added the daisies, and cut the sentiment into an arrow shape, and added that to the card with 3D glue gel.

To finish off, I added some random Stickles around the smashed bits, used a Sukura sparkle pen randomly over the inky background, then used Glossy Accents on all the vase pieces.
