Dimension at visible image

Hello there! How are you? We are good and my eldest Lucy has returned from her 3 day residential to Edinburgh so all is even better! She had a good time visiting Mary King's close, the National Gallery, Scottish Parliament, Dynamic Earth Park and the Camera Obscura. Sounds pretty good to me!

Yesterday was a bit of a funny day - after my run - which was ok - I spent some time at home and then the power went off. There was a power cut that tripped in and out for a while then stayed off for nearly 1 and half hours. Now we often get power cuts but this one was odd as my house alarm kept going off! It was very weird - never done that before! Somebody told me there's a backup battery in the box that must have ran out - need to remember to look into that one!

Anyway - whilst I felt confined to barracks without power i decided to have a go at one of the newest sets of visible image's what i made....

I adore these stamps - so very cool - I decided to make something for the current VI challenge on facebook.... its all about dimension and i think this fits the bill!!!I used distress oxides to do the background and also a further sheet of A4 on which I did some other stamping too. I also used my TH stamping platform for the first time whilst making this card - I think it will make planning and placing of images much easier!

Hope you have a great day!

Big hugs
