My card is below, my first intent was to make a Christmas card but changed my mind when I came across the sentiment on my desk :-) Can you guess what song it made me think of?
"I wanna dance with somebody" by Whitney Houston.
I used my Tonic Stamp Platform to ensure a good impression of the pretty stamp Born to Dance by Visible Image, stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. I then used the Rays stencil by Tim Holtz and Broken China ink to make it appear as if the spotlight is on the dancer. The Stars and Clock (you can see a glimpse of it on the top right) were also stencilled, this time using Spun Sugar distress ink. After the stencilling was finished, I stamped the sentiment from Penny Black (see my "For Sale" tab at the top of my blog if you're interested in this stamp - I currently still have one available brand new) twice using broken china ink and inked the edges with versamark to add some more silver embossing. Isn't this quote perfect for the stamp?
Visible Image Born to Dance // Penny Black Dance Sing Love // Tonic Stamp Platform // Versamark Ink // Silver Embossing Powder // Heating Tool // Rays Stencil // Stars Stencil -similar // Clock Stencil // Broken China Distress Ink // Spun Sugar Distress Ink // Mini Ink Blending Tool

Just beautiful Ellie, she's such a beautiful imagem I have an Inkylicious one which is almost identical and needs inking again. I'm so with you and the Tonic platform for silhouette images.ReplyDelete
Thanks Brenda, not sure how I survived without a stamp platform before... I remember lots of paper waste back then!Delete

This is STUNNING! LOVING that dancer!!!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Julie! She's gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Really super background and a really lovely image, brilliant creation.ReplyDelete
I am the same about the S.P. I had to make 120 cards and chose the Woodware reindeer silhouette, it made a great deal of difference using the S.P. and so did the V.F. Clair nocturne stamp pad.
Have a good week.
Thanks Kath! I really want to get the Versafine clair ink pad next, but I just got a new onyx ink pad a few weeks ago, right before I heard about the clair. Definitely in a future purchase though!!Delete
Absolutely Stunning, , mmm love the image, perfect background. Thanks for playing along in the "Anything goes Challenge" at the Happy Craft . P.S. I also love the stamp platform , if I didn't have it none of my images would be straightReplyDelete
