"Sparkle In The Rain"

is one of the new stamp sets from Visible Image that I have been having a bit of fun with.
It is a silhouette stamp, but you can do so much with a silhouette.  So I thought I would show you something a little different.

For this card I used a scrap piece that had some blue Bister on it. I stamped the silhouette with Versamark, triple embossed it, cut it out, put it in the freezer, cracked it and then worked some dark blue DI into it.  This is not a new technique, but it looks quite modern on a Bister background...or you could use Brusho's/Colourburst/or whatever you have handy.

Then I made up a background with the blue Bister.
Added a little bleach...around which I used a fine-liner.
Punched out some left over card and edged it.
And I used an "Edgy" stamp to add a little border.

For fun I would like to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - We Can See interpretation being the layers of clear embossing powder that was cracked and inked up.

The stamps used on my card are~

*Monoliths (MDF's) are now back in stock.
*The shop is now open again!...and the new release stamps are now available!!!
