Visible Image - Blow Out The Candles

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.
