More Visible Image

Well I just never get sick of stamps by Visible Image, (think I'm addicted..... lol)
I got the idea for the background (Retiform Technique) on this from my latest copy of Craft Stamper, which dropped through the letter box this morning.  I  knew straight away this would be prefect for the Inkognito Woman stamp.  I stamped and heat embossed the image first.  The I used a piece of card to blend my ink against and continued all the way round the card.  I used 2 shades of Adirondack ink pads, Oregano and Willow, applying Willow first as it's the lighter shade, then just a touch of the Oregano, again against the piece of card.  I used the same stamp for the edges just inking and stamping the bubbly part of the stamp, love the effect this gives.  The sentiment is from the 'Happy Birthday' stamp set.
I finished this one last night, but only took the photo today.  I used one of my many Gelli plate backgrounds for this, they're brilliant for things like this.  Once I'd added the acrylic paint to the plate, I pressed an embossed piece of card into it so the paint transferred to the card.  I embossed the card first with just the usual embossing folder.  Then I got my 'Time After Time' stamp set out and added a bit of stamping.  I stamped the clock, wings and words onto a scrap piece of card, cut them out and mounted them with sticky pads to the background.  I like the clock and wings stamps because they're separate stamps, so don't have to be used together.
Hope you like these and thanks for looking x

I've recently ventured in to the world of Retiform technique too - your results are simply splendid, Karen. Love the V.I. stamps too and have the "time" set too

Have a great Bank Holiday weekend
