Inky Mail Art – Visible Image stamps

Today I wanted to share a new pair of mail art postcards I made using my favorite Visible Image stamps.

Each postcard is just about 4 inches by 6 inches and full of mixed fun!

I used the fabulous Flower INKognito and Butterfly INKognito stamps by Visible Image.

I stamped Butterfly INKognito onto tissue paper using Ranger Jet Black Archival ink. The background I created using the ARTplorations stencil Old Rose Prints with DecoArt modeling paste and Americana acylic paint.

The back of the post card uses the ‘stem’ from Flower INKognito. The dots, more of my favorites, are from the¬†Plasma set. The background is a mix of water, acrylic paint and dish soap. There are some fun tutorials out there; you make bubbles with this mixture and then dip the paper into it and/or let the bubbles land on it (the most fun way!)

The background here was made with DecoArts Fluid acrylics Quinacridone Violet and Titanium White, misted with water and mixed on my craft mat.  The flowers are heat embossed in white.

I added the Flower INKognito stamp and “Listen to your Heart” is from the¬†“This is Me”¬†set.
