Visible Image Stamps - April Challenge

Woohooo its New Challenge time over at the
The Theme is
Get Stamping
I think the title speaks for itself really :) we would like you to use stamps on your fabulous entry
 (NOT Digi images)
Before I share with you my inspiration I have to say OH MY the entries into the March challenge were truly outstanding it was so hard for the team to choose but you can read all the info over at the fab
Right I hope you like it :)
This was the first time i'd had chance to use the new
 Houndstooth Background stamps which I stamped 4 times to make the backing paper, this really shows how easy it is to line up all the background stamps from Visible Image.  
I really do love to make backing papers from my stamps and not just using the as a topper for my projects, next time you have your stamps on give it ago if you have never tried doing it before, plus don't forget to share them with us.
 I teamed this up with the super Vintage Car such an awesome car im sure you will agree. I then finished this off with some simple black and orange card and some satin ribbon from my stash.

All the Visible Image Stamps give a crystal clear image from the very first use and when I get crafters to try them at the shows the first words out of their mouths is" WOW" you dont need to put any pressure at all on them to get your perfect stamped image and thats all down to the exceptionally talented designer and maker of these OUTSTANDING quality stamps Mark Watt.

If you would like to meet the Owners Mark & Helen then come and say hello at the next big craft show at Alexandra Palace in North London in April and of course I will be there too demonstrating these outstanding stamps.

The ink pad I used on the above image was a Versafine Black which is a nice crisp bright black ink.
I work along side some of the best talented Crafters and I would love you to come and take a peek at their truly outstanding inspirational work which they have done to inspire you and wow they have definitely done that for you.

I look forward to seeing your beautiful projects.

We also have a very friendly Facebook Group and would love you to come and join us, 
you will find lots of inspiration from the DT and the amazing members there for you along with crafty tips and lots of friendly Crafters waiting to meet you.
