Rock Out!

Hello! We are back with more inspiration for our shows on Create and Craft TV this weekend! Elina has teamed up our rocker with one of our NEW stencils…

Have you already seen the new stencils by Visible Image? I love working with stencils, and seeing this addition to their stamp collection was so exciting!

I used the ‘Strobes’ stencil for the background of this rock themed tag:

I started the project with inking the background with yellow and orange Distress inks, and stamping and heat embossing the main image on the tag.

I placed the stencil on the tag, and stencilled clear VersaMark embossing ink on the tag, dabbing the ink around the main image. Then I heat embossed the stencil pattern with clear embossing ink.

Clear embossing ink acted as a resisting layer on the yellow ink, so when adding a darker ink color on the tag the heat-embossed areas remained yellow. This is such a fun and easy technique to work with, and I think the grungy background matches well with the rock star image 🙂

For more information on the Visible Image products I used, please click on the pictures below:


Wishing you a wonderful week. Rock Out!
