Good Morning! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. It’s a dark, wet morning here in South Wales but of course it’s still marvellous as we have the best job in the world… Creating awesome stamps!
We have been busy working on some AMAZING NEW designs and we are so incredibly excited about these! Once again they are original, unique, and you will not be able to resist them! We will reveal all in February.
As always on a Monday, Kim Bacon is here to inspire you. Over to Kim…
Hello Readers! And a big HELLO to new visitors, hope you enjoy it here!
Today, with it being a Monday, it is of course Marvellous Monday with Visible Image. I have 2 tags for you today featuring a couple of the fantastic sentiments from the Express Yourself range. These are *the* most useful stamps! There are some great inspirational quotes which are small enough to be added to little projects like these tags but BIG enough to be a feature. Did you see my Karma card recently? Oh! You didn’t? Well, I have no shame so here it is again, see how the sentiment sits perfectly as a main feature. If the butterfly wasn’t there, the card would still ‘work’.
Back to the tags! I took some remnants of Brusho coloured card and beefed them up a bit with some more colour. I then used the grunge polka dot stamp to remove some of the colour using just water which I dabbed off before it dried. I then used some dilute bleach and the Bronte Script to provide some white areas as well as using it with some ink to give some darker, more defined script. And then……yep more, I used the splats and blotches to add some more visual texture. You can barely see some of the stamping but it does make a difference. It is what makes these little projects so much fun to make. It is a great place to experiment. The main sentiments were stamped and embossed with black before even more bleach in the letters to make them ‘pop’.
Just a couple more things to tell you about. First there is the release of some totally gorgeous romantic sentiments. If you ask me, they are pretty good for any time of the year but they are obviously totally right for the 14th February!
They are available as individual stamps but I am pretty sure you’re going to want them all, I know I do! There is also the little Cupid set which is specially for Valentine’s Day. Cute eh?
