Hey, Visible Image fans! I hope you caught the launch of the new release on Hobbymaker TV last week. There are some fabulous new stamps, dies and stencils, and also coordinating dies for the Blow Out The Candles stamp set.
For my card I stamped and coloured a lemon spongecake, using varying shades of yellow Distress inks.
I needed plenty of candles for this effect! I coloured them using Zig Clean Colour brush pens.
They all needed cutting out, and the new dies did the job.
I wanted to make the candles look as if they were being blown right off the cake so I just worked with the flickering candle so that I could angle them, and the Radiate stencil was perfect for the look.
The background paper is watercoloured using Distress Mica Stains, so there's a subtle sheen to it. I positioned the cake and sentiment to check everything would fit, then stencilled Distress Oxides through.
Then it was just a case of stamping the sentiment and attaching all the candles to the cake. I adhered some to the front and some to the back of the cake for depth, and one being blown right off!
You can see a bit of the sheen on the background in this close-up.
Pop on over to the new Visible Image website where you can find everything in the new release and, of course, all their other designs.

Hi, it's time for a new Seize The Birthday challenge, brought to us by Glenda, and it's Splatter. I love me some splatter!
I was quite light-handed with the splatter this time, just adding tiny splatter to the Concord & 9th You Are Loved image. The stamped and diecut sentiment is from The Stamp Market.
Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the design team and our surprise party guests, and play along with us. If you're not into splatters, you cn still play along with any birthday-themed project.

I inked up the script stamp with Black Soot distress ink, then spritzed it before stamping at the bottom of the panel, but it stamped too dark for what I wanted, and I didn't like how it overlapped the tulip leaves. So I reinked it with Hickory Smoke and spritzed a little harder, masking the leaves, and hey presto, that was what I wanted.
Here's a close-up of the Speedball Elegant Writer version,and the Hickory Smoke version.Pop on over to the Visible Image store for these fab designs, and many more!
