Captured Moments

Hi! We are back with more fabulous inspiration for you this evening.

This Friday we are back on Create and Craft TV.. with 2 shows at 11am and 4pm! We have lots of brilliant stamp sets on the shows, and here on the blog this week we are showcasing some of the awesome samples that have been created by our amazing team.

Jane Tyrrell is here with an incredible project…

Good evening, I am here with my weekly Monday Design Team inspiration for Visible Image. There is a new challenge for June over on Facebook and our theme this month is to add “dimension”.

My trusty camera comes everywhere with me and I capture lots of moments with it.

I have always loved being outside in the garden and I have some treasured vintage photos from my childhood, mostly black and white. My brother and I used to play in our family garden for hours and hours….Sindy Doll and Action Man featured a lot! I decided to use a scanned copy of my darling brother and I in the garden circa 1963. Don’t you love my furry slippers ?

For my card I decided to use the brilliant Capture the Moment set

I made myself a Distress Oxide ink background

and added some background stamps and stencilling;  I used words from the Destination Unknown set

and scripted streets set

I also embossed the great ‘Smile’ stamp which comes with the Capture the Moment set

I  added some circles using Archival Ink from the Universal set.

I decoupaged the camera in 3 layers to give a 3D effect. I also coloured the metal parts of the camera silver

The words from the set were embossed in white and I distressed the edge of the plaque to “age” it.

The vintage style photo corners added to the vintage effect. I stuck foam under the plaque again adding dimension

I then put everything together and below is my finished card

I hope these techniques and ideas may inspire you to join our ‘Dimension’ challenge over on Facebook!
You might even be the lucky winner of the £40 voucher to spend on the website… and that could treat you to some of the brand new stamps!

Back soon.
Bye for now
