The Wonderful Visible Image world of Oz

Today we are off to see the Wizard of Oz...yes Visible Image have reintroduced their fabulous characters with new accent stamps in the sets. Plus there is more news...there are dies available for cutting out the stamps! Wow!
The dies were not quite ready to post when I received my Design Team stamps so all my pieces have been fussy cut but boy the dies will save me a lot of work.

I found it hard to choose a favourite from the 6 characters but I plumped in the end for the dear Tin Man and he is my first Design Team share today.

and this is what I got up to.

I decided that I would try stamping him onto silver card and tried several different types. Eventually I settled on this foiled one.
 I fussy cut him out but remember you can now use the coordinating dies are available here

 How cute is he!
Because I had lots of other variations of him stamped on silver card I had a light bulb moment idea to use one of the others to decoupage him. So I cut out some of his parts and did just that.
Now don't laugh but at one point I lost his nose and one of his hands...I had to crawl about on the floor and luckily I found them...phew! You can see that I also decoupaged the axe and tie using watercolour card.

As it is near to Valentine's day and this set comes with fab steam punk hearts stamps and a loving sentiment I decided that I would go with a red, black and silver colour scheme.

I stamped and embossed the background using pewter and red embossing powders on black card.
I then had the idea that I could add metal elements to the hearts too. So I also stamped the hearts onto silver foiled card and cut parts out of the heart and the winder on the larger heart. I added a Cheery Lynn heart die cut too.

So here is my finished Valentine's card with the dear Tin Man....I wonder who he is losing his heart to?

 with a couple of close ups.

Just look at the little oil can too 💗
and one final shot.

I really love this little guy and have lots more ideas for him.
