Good Times @ Visible Image

Good Afternoon to you ūüôā

It’s time for some more gorgeous inspiration! This time it’s Kim Bacon here with a fabulous new card using some of her favourite Visible Image stamps…

WOW! WOW! and again WOW!
By all accounts the Bosses had a mega time at Ally Pally over the weekend!
Did you go? Did you meet them? What did you buy from the Visible Image stand?
Oh I am soooooo nosey! Maybe you will show us what you make in the Show and Tell soon. yes?

Right, today I have for you a bright little card I made using one of my favourite images, the butterfly. Not the INKognito butterfly that I usually use but the traditional butterfly. In fact I used both the large and the small one on this card.

Visible Image stamps - Good Times - Butterfly - Kim Bacon

I started by simply stamping directly onto a piece of white card with the 2 different colours of dye based stamp pad to create the block background. No stamp, just use the ink pad as the stamp. I left a bit of white space and kept the pressure to a minimum so as not to squish too much ink out from the pad.  Once this was dry I used a very dry brush with white gesso to mute the colours further. Taking the mini dots stamp I then stamped in both colours over the dry gesso. Butterflies were also added in the 2 colours.

 Using Stazon in Dark Cherry and black I stamped a big and a small butterfly onto acetate before cutting them out and sticking them to the card base using a clear silicone glue.

The sentiment was stamped onto another piece of the card in black ink and mounted across the card.

Here is the ‘Stamps I Used’ list and as always just click on the image to link you directly to the Visible Image shop page for that stamp…
