Jump For Joy!

Tomorrow Doesn't Exist
is one of the new Summer release stamps from Visible Image.
What I really love about this set is the carefree and positive message that it puts out.


I had so much fun putting this one together!
The background is built up with stencils and gelatos and then stamps.
I have found that the Imagine Dream Inspire word stamp set makes a wonderful addition to backgrounds...so that has become another layer on top of the stencils.
The main image and words are from the 
Live Like Tomorrow Doesn't Exist stamp set.  

The words from the set were made on a scrap piece left over from the main panel.  Nothing goes to waste lol.

What I love about gelatos is how you can just wipe away the colour with baby wipes, or damp paper toweling...so that is what I have done with the large dots stencil and around the edge of the words.  I l love the faded effect that you end up with.

Extra white is added with some white acrylic paint for circles and a white gel pen for highlights.

*A handy tip that I have discovered when using silhouette stamps is...
just stamp the image into Versamark first and wipe of lightly on your arm...then add your black ink!  I use Versafine.
(I think I read that somewhere on you-tube)
It stamps beautifully this way.

The stamps used are:

I saw these Visable Images stamps on TV recently, I was very impressed with them. your card is amazing, I agree so light, positive and free. I adore the stamp, but your background is utterly amazing. Good luck. Thanks for joining us at Make My Monday. Caz DT.
