Dance............Like no one's watching...............
Well, I'm still on my holly bobs but I've made this card in advance so that I can share it with my Visible Image Facebook friends while I'm away.
I decided to focus on the Born To Perform stamp set this time.
I firstly got the image of the face down using the Face Shape stencil and mask set. I went around the outside of the face and then worked on the shading of the inside of the face.
Then the first major move was to stamp the beautiful ballerina. I have stamped this piece using Spectrum aqua markers throughout. I then masked her with a mask it sheet and stamped the face (Face It! set) - this time keeping those eyes closed (like no one's watching).
I have used feathers (large and small) from the Free Your Imagination Set again using aqua markers to stamp those images. I love to see feathers with ballerinas, I think the two go together, perhaps because they are light, perhaps because they are dreamy? So feathers it was to enclose that face and give balance.
I added some frantage to the feathers and some very pale pink embossing powder too. I have also painted in her costume with a clear overlay pen -you can see this all glistening here:
Hard to pick up on a photo but it's shining!
I finished by just defining her front leg a little with a fine tip pen and the curve of her back.
Mat and layered in black and white and on the white layer I have stamped "Dance" and blended some distress ink on that mat to match the general colour scheme.
I enjoyed this one, - well, I always do enjoy playing with Visible Image stamps!
Hope you've enjoyed your visit today,
Thanks for stopping by,
I shall share this with the Visible Image family on Facebook.
I shall enter this in to the following challenges:-
