Captain Awesome by Visible Image

Happy Monday morning folks! Well, ok for some of you it may not be if you are back to work after a nice Valentines weekend, but I have a rare day off today so it's definitely a happy one for me. If you are doing battle with the workplace today then hopefully my card offering will brighten your day!

I love love love stamps by Visible Image. They are so different and fresh and great to work with as such good quality. I have several sets that haven't as yet been inked ( shocking I know!)so I am on a mission to use them as I have some of their new releases arriving soon too ( check them out on the website- they are awesome!). Talking of awesome- the stamp set I used for my card is Captain Awesome. Brilliant image for boys cards, which I always struggle with. 

To create my background I used Dylusion sprays on watercolour card. Once dry I spritzed through a star mask with water to give a bleached effect. The main imaged were stamped and fussy cut, and I made the laser effect with coloured texture paste and a mask which I sprinkled glitter over when wet to add dimension. To finish off I inked through a third mask to give the circles and splats, stamped the sentiment and stuck the images on. Really simple to do yet very effective I think.
