Stay Strong Card (Visible Image)

My friend is going through an absolutely awful time at the moment. An image for a card, just doesn't seem appropriate.  So while rummaging through my stamps, I came across this sentiment by Visible Image called "Stay Strong", which kind of says it all.

I made the coloured background by using six Distress Oxide colours spritzed, blotted and then dried.  I ran an antistatic bag across the surface and then stamped the sentiment in Versamark clear ink, then coated in Wow Embossing Powder in a "Metallic Silver" then heat embossed the sentiment.  Once dry, I gave a blast of hairspray across the surface, to set the chalky background.  

I finally added a few little stars using a small Lavinia Stamp, stamped in Memento Ink.
