Visible Image Birthday Card Using Time Sets

I don't know about you, but I always find male birthday cards are a bit of a challenge. That's one of the reasons that I love my stamp collection from Visible Image  so much. Their stamps are really unique and definitely appeal to my inky grungy side. 

This is a card I made last night for my brother in laws upcoming birthday. I used stamps from their Ahead of Our Time, Somewhere in Time, Scripted Streets, and Destination Unknown sets, which were stamped over a background created with Distress Oxide inks. A touch of Frantage powder added a little extra interest over the top. 


I'm so pleased that Helen and Mark had such an amazing and successful time at Creativation at the weekend, but I am glad they are safely back home now and back to work as I am waiting for some more stamps to arrive from their new release. How exciting!
