Anything Goes at Stamping Sensations

Hello there on this Sunday morning,

I do hope that you're all keeping well and happy.

It's time for a new challenge at 'Stamping Sensations' and our theme this time is 'Anything Goes.'  That's a nice easy one this time, so why not get your stamps out and join us.  We are very generously sponsored this month by 'Visible Image' and so I've used their stamps as inspiration.


I'm a fan of  Visible Image stamps and so I've made my card using three of their stamp sets: Face It, Leave Your Fears Behind and Alphabetical.

I started my card by stamping the Face It stamps with Versafine and then heat embossing them to avoid any smudges.  Next, I made masks for the eyes to keep them nice and white.  I then dabbed some Distress inks onto my craft mat, spritzed them and pressed the card into it.   I've made my own mask for this stamp set using acetate.  I did make several before I finally found a shape that I was happy with.  It's amazing how different the face looks with different shaped masks.  I used the mask over the face and then used a sponge dauber and pink ink around the face to give it some definition.  I then brought in the Leave Your Fears Behind set in to add the birds and trees around the face.  I had the idea to create a fringe with the band of trees stamp and I think it's worked reasonably well in framing the face.  I don't have the 'True Colours' stamp by VI, so I made my own text up from the Alphabetical set.  All of the black stamping was heat embossed.  Finally, I gave my girl a little make up, some blue eye shadow and some red lippy.  Not my colours but I think they suit her, she's definitely showing her true colours :)

Don't forget that we are sponsored by Mark and Helen at Visible Image, and the lucky winner will receive a £25 gift voucher to spend at their online store


Stamping Sensations is a stamping challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

All the details of our challenge rules can be found here

Please note:  If we don't comment on your entry it will be because it doesn't follow our theme to qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third part hosts such as Instagram, Flickr or Facebook etc.  We really don't want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who follow the rules.

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x
