Visible Image Debut – Dot Leathbridge

Hello 🙂 Thank you for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today!

We are very excited to be sharing the very first Design Team project by Dot Leathbridge today…

It’s been an exciting time waiting for my first make as part of the Visible Image DT.  It is great to get the first one done!

There is so much buzz among the team at the moment because there are heaps of new stamps to be released next month – and they look amazing!!! Sneak peaks are appearing on the Facebook group, there is a launch on Create and Craft TV (in Feb) and at the UK Trade Show (also in Feb)…so lots to watch out for!

Today I wanted to do something with a little pazzazz – so I decided on a blast of music!

Visible Image stamps - Jazz It Up - Silhouette Sax & trumpet player stamps - Dot Leithbridge

These stamps were so much fun to play with!

There are more music themed ones in the collection, but I love music festivals and live bands so wanted to make a kind of raw, back to basics jazz/blues card.

I cut out a circle die and placed it in the center of the card, then inked up the background with some bright distress inks.

The white bubbles are made through a stencil with acrylic paint.

Then I thought I would flick some red Brusho (mixed with water) onto the card for some extra colour – and it splattered onto the white section…so I added some carefully placed red circles (through a stencil) to cover it up…
remember… there is no such thing as a mistake – just a new opportunity!

I stamped the silhouettes, added some partial stamping of the music notes, and from the flourish stamp (around the edge), and the words to finish off.

When I made this card we all heard of the passing of David Bowie, so when I look at this card I think of the song “Dancing In The Street”…if you wanted to have a go at making this, you could quite easily journal the words to that song around the edge and I think it would look awesome.

The stamps used were:

There’s inspiration almost every day on the Visible Image blog as well as sharing of ideas and inspiration over on the Facebook page.


Wow! Amazing card Dot thank you ♡

We will be back later with today’s NEW stamps preview!

Thanks for visiting.
