Good Evening! Hope you have had a good start to the new week.
Kicking off another week of amazing Design Team inspiration, here’s Kim Bacon…
Oh what a glorious weekend it has been! Sun, sea and sand by the bucket load, thank you Mr Weather!
Today I am showcasing a collection of cards I made using only Visible Image stamps. I wanted to make a group of cards suitable to be given as a gift set and so I set about making several background papers first.
In my palette there was a lot of blue/green/purple Brusho paint which needed using up. I looked in my envelope drawer and found some blue envelopes which were the right size for my plans.
I don’t often use white embossing powder but with the intense colour of the background paper I ended up with it seemed the perfect one to use.
For those that know how good Visible Image stamps are I don’t need to tell you how deeply etched they are, how perfectly they stamp every time and just what fab designs there are!
For those of you who are new to Visible Image, er, just re-read the above!
As I said, I started by making the background papers. I had great fun smooshing colour over some good quality white card stock. I use Brusho powder as a wet paint and just leave it to dry.
Next I used a dark blue ink to add the circles from the Universal set all over but not overlapping. Once this was completely dry I started adding the white embossed dotty-circles, again from the Universal set and also the larger one from the Plasma set.
The sentiments, which are from the Express Yourself range, were stamped onto card with none of the extra stamping on. It allows the words to stand while still being a perfect colour match.
All the elements were cut and mounted onto white card before being added to the blue card bases. The sentiment pieces were mounted using a dimensional glue to raise them from the page.
