Sun Queen

Hello! We are back as promised with more fabulous inspiration this afternoon, here on the Visible Image blog!

If you love the sun, and burnt orange tones, then you are in for a real treat from Jane Tyrrell…

It’s my weekly dose of Visible Image stamps inspiration today. The new stencils are back in stock here on the website  and I have been having fun with them.

A few weeks ago I shared my Blue Snow Queen card.. if you missed her check out my post here.

I adore the Face it stamp set and, inspired by the glorious sun that peeped out during my autumnal walk, I made something with the eyes open stamps from the set.

I also decided to go from a cool to a warm colour palette and had the idea to create a Sun Queen as an art journal page.

I worked with 3 of the fab new stencils too:


I often use the mask from the Face shape stencil & mask set but this time I decided to draw round it and make a separate cut out face which I could decorate first and then stick to my card to complete. I used masking fluid on her eyes and lips to protect them from the inks.

I used some of my Italian cotton cold pressed artist card and made an inky background using some warm autumnal distress inks

Next I added some sun bursts using the strobes stencil, and then inked the inner parts with stamps from the
Rays of Light set

which work perfectly with this stencil

I then added texture paste through my time tunnel stencil using the first brown swirls as my guide.

Finally I stamped the perfect sentiment, one of the new quotes Your Vivid Colours

So here is my Sun Queen…

With some close ups

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy the sunshine if you get some, smile at the”Sun Queen” ? if you see her, and delight in the gorgeous colours of autumn.

Back soon.

Bye for now,
