Good Evening! Lisa Taggart is here on the blog today with an incredible project created with our Zodiac Leo stamps set. We love what Lisa has done with the Leo Lion stamp…
Hello there! Hands up who bought some of the new Visible Image zodiac stamps? Well do you love them? We in the team have had a wonderful time playing with them. Today I’m sharing one of my designs using the Zodiac Leo Stamps set. The lion is just so magestic!
Zodiac Leo Stamps
I began this project testing out some Chinese calligraphy paper that I had bought for collage work. I sprayed it with ink and then randomly ripped it up into strips and collaged these onto card using mat gel medium.
I then used starlight paints to make some ink splaters for additional texture. This metallic paint is wonderful for this purpose.
For the background behind the lion’s head I wanted to create an inky Maine . So using glossy card, I spayed some yellow ink and applied aquatint inks blowing the ink using a straw.
I stamped the lion’s head and sentiments using black wow sparkle powder. I coloured the lion using Spectrun Nior sparkle pens.
I had created a sun dial from air dry paper clay a while ago for another project and didn’t use it so I decided to colour it and gild it with pebeo wax and use it as an extra layer to emphasise the lion.
I assembled the elements including the wording, layering it onto complimentary card. I also added some black thread and purple gems for additional interest.
He’s a handsome devil isn’t he!
Thats it for now.
Incredible project Lisa! It is so dramatic and powerful.. perfect for the mighty Lion!
Thank you ♡
