Free your imagination & Sparkle Challenge @ Visible Image

Mornings people :)

Being a Saturday I am sailing in with some
goodness to share with you all!

Have you checked out the THREE NEW STAMP sets 
that were released this week at Visible Image
Today I am getting inky again with just one of them ... 
Free Your Imagination!

I truly {heart} this set!
I don't know if it is the grunge, the splatters, the birds, or even the quill with this set; but something just draws me to it and I KNOW I am going to get inky & messy & have some wickedly good fun!   
 And with the 'SPARKLE CHALLENGE' running this month at Visible Image; inky sparkles were running through my head for this card ;)

Oh the fun you can have with rubber stamps and ink!
Here is a run down of all the ones I got inky with
Sentiment Circle - Splattered bird and sentiment from Free Your Imagination Set
The grunge around the edges of the sentiment - Are tree edges from the largest tree in the Tree Trio Set
Polk Dot Designer Paper - That is handmade with the Grunge Poka Dot Background
The brown strip of  DP - Made with the gorgeous Grunge Flourish

Close up of the circle sentiment. 

Wrought Iron Corner close up. - It is a great stamp to 'bling' up!

Close up of the lush bow, handmade posh pins & DP made with the Grunge Poka Dot Background.

Side view of the textures goings on.

I forget how much fun it can be to get the rubber stamps out and have inky fun!  I loved just cruising along & playing while making this.  I used the embossing resist technique for the Polka Dot Grunge Background & the Grunge flourish piece - two great pieces of paper just randomly created that soon one thing just lead to another thing & it turned into a card.  I don't think my imagination can much free-er than that! 

I have recently rediscovered my stashed box of feathers & could not resist adding the red polka dot ones, the lace from my stash was originally white & given new life with the help of my Spectrum Noir pens & the bling ... I am still trying to clear out the mass of sparkles in that box!  I swear it is never ending!  

All the delicious stamps I have used today can all be found at the 
You can get your Visible Image stamps from {here}

And I still have to brag about them a little more!
They are so AFFORDABLE and the postage rate is only ... 
you seriously ready for this ???
A FLAT £2.00 on ALL orders! 
How many times do you go shopping online and end up paying more in shipping than you originally spent on your purchase(s)?  That won't happen at happen at Visible Image!

Don't have the spare cash right now ? 
Well that is ok too :) 
Why not play along with this month's
Sparkle Challenge!
