Visible Image - A Little Bit Broken

I've not had a play with my Visible Image stamps for some days, so decided to address it this evening making this card.  You may recall I had a significant purchase from their Black Friday sale, so I have used some of the new goodies on this card.

I found an off-cut of a Brusho background I'd made some months ago, so decided to make use of it for this.  It had peach and blue tones.

I decided to use "Blueprint Sketch" Distress Oxide Ink through the Visible Image "Fibres" stencil in the central area of the card,

Using the wings from the Visible Image "Faerie Magic" clear stamp set, I stamped them first in Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue colourd ink onto the card.  I then stamped them onto a piece of vellum using a StazOn Ink called "Blue Hawaii".

I coloured the vellum wings with a silver glitter Signo pen, then fussy cut them out, adhering partially over the stamped wings on the card, to create a more layered look.

On plain white card, I stamped the heart shape, which is part of another Visible Image stamp set called "Don't Judge" in Versafine Clair "Twilight" ink.  

I coloured both hearts with Distress Oxide Inks, one with "Wilted Violet with Chipped Sapphire" and one with "Mermaid Lagoon" shade of inks.  I then cut both out.  I adhered the darker purple looking heart on to the card.

Using the "Mermaid Lagoon" coloured heart, I stamped the safety pin/fracture across the heart to create to create an impression that the heart is being held together.  Again, I used Versafine Clair Twilight and coloured the safety pins with a silver Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  I added clear foam hearts to the back and then adhered over part of the purple heart.

The "A Little Bit Broken" sentiment is also from the Visible Image "Don't Judge" clear stamp set and I used the Twilight ink again for that.

Finally, I added some silver dots to the stamped background wings and then darkened the edges of the card, using a finger blender with Versafine Clair" Twilight" ink.
