Hello! We hope you are having a good week! It’s been busy, busy here.. pre-orders have been sent off to our fabulous stockists all over the world, and it’s almost time for all the direct orders to hit the post too! Thank you! Thank you! We are thrilled by how much you are loving our NEW stamps and stencils!!! Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog this evening with more inspiration for our incredibly popular ‘Into The Woods’ stamp set…
Good Evening! I am delighted to be here with my weekly dose of Visible Image design team inspiration. Over the weekend we had record breaking temperatures and it’s hit 28c here! I am loving it. We went to find some shade yesterday in our local woods.
I took some photos for today’s post as I am using the brilliant new Into The Woods stamp set.
This was the view as we went into the woods
The new leaves are all a glorious lime green as they are still so new and tender.
I love looking through at all the different levels of trees.
From saplings to mighty fully mature oaks.
The brand new Visible Image Into The Woods stamp set is absolutely perfect for recreating these magical scenes.
I decided that as I wanted to use all the stamps in the set for my first creation I would set my scene at night time…just imagine… the time when the sun is just going down and the shadows lengthen.
I blended my Distress oxides, I used squeezed lemonade, broken china and lucky clover, onto some heavy weight smooth card stock.
I added a little spritz of water for the stars. I then stamped some shadows using my Versafine Claire ink and the background stamp.
Here we go…the shadows lengthen and the day is nearly done…up in the sky you might just see the stars starting to twinkle.
I then stamped the big tree and also the foreground trees stamp using darker ink (shown in my completed card photo..further on.)
I also stamped, embossed and cut out the words I wanted to use.
I finished off my card with the little owl stamps.
So let’s further set the scene…….imagine that the daytime bird song has be replaced by the hooting of owls…and everyone has gone home from the woods. It is the turn of the creatures of the night to re claim the woods until morning…..
Here is my finished card.
The little owl stamps are just delightful. Here are a couple of close ups.
and one last shot
I absolutely love this stamp set, there are so many possibilities ..when we visited the woods on Sunday we also found carpets of bluebells
but that’s another story and another creation which I will share soon.
The new stamps and stencils release can be pre-ordered now!
and they will be shipped to you on Friday… don’t miss out!
There are 6 new stamp sets and 8 new stencils… all totally amazing and uniquely Visible Image.
Thanks so much for taking a trip into the woods (and my imagination) with me today. Enjoy this awesome bank holiday Monday and I will be back very soon. Thanks as always for the kind comments you take the time to leave me.
Bye for now,
