Dare To Swim

Hello! Thank you for visiting our blog today. We have been in ‘Creativation mode’ all week so far.. we are getting very excited to be visiting the USA for the very first time and have been planning our rather colourful booth! Our Design Team are creating stunning things with our ‘top secret’ new stamps for our stand too.. more on that in the New Year!!


Today we have some very gorgeous inspiration from Lisa Taggart here on the blog, featuring one of our top selling sets from 2017…



A little break from Christmas and snow today. I’m sharing an underwater scene using the ‘Dare to Swim’ stamps from Visible Image . It’s a bit experimental using alcohol inks and  my Spectrum noir markers onto Yupo paper. The effect gives a slightly impressionistic murky scene where achieving clear images proved allusive! I embraced it in the end and just went with the flow … excuse the pun!




I began by adding alcohol inks and let them make patterns. I stamped the images on top using black stazon ink and highlighted the scene using inks; alcohol pens; black and white markers and some stickles  in peacock.
