Making A Splash!

Hello there… hope you are well. Wow it’s been a hot one today! And it’s been one of those brain frazzling kind of days here too! Apologies for not blogging for the last few days, we will make up for it though as we have lots of fabulous inspiration to share with you!

Here’s Jane Tyrrell making a splash….

I am here with my weekly Visible Image inspiration. We have a brand new challenge running for July over on Facebook and the theme is  “a splash of colour”. As I have recently returned from my holiday in Portugal I took the theme literally and wanted to make a card with a seaside splash of colour.

There is nothing like the sea and a clear summer sky abroad. I wanted to try to recreate the feel of a hot summer day by the sea. I chose a couple of summer blue distress inks and added them to my craft sheet. I sprayed a spritz of water and then dipped my card into the pools of inky blue dye until I had a created a sea splash/wave pattern I was happy with.

I knew just the image to use… the sea jumping Katie stamp from the Tomorrow Doesn’t Exist set

I also wanted to add summer into the mix so I got out my Alphabetical set 

I selected the stamps to spell summer… I couldn’t resist using the # again too! I stamped and embossed my images and letters.

Here are a couple of close ups. The light reflects off the embossing and the inks give a feeling of the splash of colour in the sea.


I hope you enjoy a wonderful summer and that you get the chance to smell the sea and feel the warmth of the sunshine on your skin…. such a fabulous feeling.

We hope to see lots of you joining in with this month’s “a splash of colour” challenge over in the Visible Image Facebook group.

The sun has returned and it looks like we have a week of gorgeous blue skies to look forward to ?.  I have lots of crafting to catch up with in my garden studio!

Back soon!
Bye for now,
