Dare to be Different - Visible Image

My first Visible Image blog post of the year using this incredible set of stamps:

Here is the card I made:
Now let me tell you about the fun I had making it!

Firstly I prepared my background with my newest box of delights...an incredible set of Kuretake watercolours, sent to me by a very dear friend. Oh my goodness, the vibrancy in these, I spent a whole evening just playing and making backgrounds by swooshing card over spritzed colour washes and allowing the paint to flow across the papers...it was heavenly! 

So when I selected my background for this, fortunately, it was very dry and this enabled me to stamp first the lips, for position and to get the edgy splatty detail, I stamped with clear Versamark and used Cherry Red embossing powder which I then set with my heat gun. I also inked up the top of the sentiment stamp and used white embossing powder, which really stands out, then positioned the word 'lipstick' off-centre beneath the lips, as I had a plan for the lipstick.


However to get a really clean impression, and to get the teeth white, I stamped again onto white card. 

The mouth : red embossing powder then I coloured over the 'open' part with an embossing pen, applying black powder, to create the depth. 

The lipstick: Clear Versamark and careful application of Cherry red over the lipstick, then black embossing powder over the case.

The actual slick of lipstick stamp that comes with the set is just so cool, so I used it under the word. This close-up shot also shows how I created a bit of interest on the background by splatting a bit of watery white acrylic paint. 


I stamped the OXOs with purple distress ink so that it wouldn't detract from the focal images, and I hope that it frames it all well.

Last thing - Lip gloss! Well, glossy accents in all the right places, but mmm mmm, luscious lips!!
