Exciting new Visible Image products

Good morning, welcome to the last Monday in August. It's a bank holiday here in the UK and as a double bonus the sun has shone all weekend and it might reach the dizzying heights of 26c here in the South of England. 
Today I have a bit of a red white and blue theme going on here....
red tomatoes
 my white geraniums
 and the gorgeous blue skies we have enjoyed.
So if I'm thinking red, white and blue I might be suggesting a theme for my Monday DT card for Visible Image....hmmmm...something patriotic,

like the Union Jack...

yes Visible Image have brought out a brand new range of stencils and the first I have had the pleasure to play with is none other than the brilliant Grungy Union Jack which can be pre-ordered for September release here
Isn't it gorgeous...I love those grungy drips. These have been designed by Mark and made for Visible Image by Tando Creative. They are fab quality and thickness, a generous 6X6" size and are available to pre order here There are 10 designs, all are awesome, do check them out.

As soon as I saw this stencil I knew just which stamp would go perfectly with it...
yes the bowler hatted man from the

ahead of our time  stamp set

I kept to the red. white and blue of the flag and inked it up using Distress inks.
I then stamped and embossed the man and added the flying birds...I had been up to London the day before and it got me thinking of Mary Poppins and "feed the birds"...yes I know it's quite scary inside my head sometimes! I also used the very apt creativity sentiment from the 

Here is my first DT card using this awesome stencil.

  2. I am home today after a weekend working away in doors :( so I can enjoy the sunshine today whilst hanging out all the washing the kids have left for me :D Love your card, creativity is indeed very good for the soul x

  3. Well I have the red tomatoes, the white geraniums but sadly absolutely no blue sky, the weather was dreadful here today. We managed a little trip to the local open farm so A could see the animals but it was short lived as it poured.
