Beautiful Smile Plaque

Hi there! Pauline Butcher is here on the blog this evening with a stunning plaque featuring our Hummingbird Stamp and Just Smile quote…

Hi there,
Today I’m sharing a grey-board heart, decorated with some fantastic Visible Image products..

The stamps I’ve used on this piece are:

the wonderful Hummingbird stamp from the ‘Life is Beautiful set

along with one of the super sentiments from the So Much Stronger set

I also used some stamps in the background:

the small circles from ‘Shape it Up

and of course the fabulous extra stamp that comes in the ‘Life is Beautiful‘ set,
and the superb ‘Geometric Maze stencil, was the main part of the background too

I primed the heart with some white gesso, then with my brayer added random bits of pink and orange paint, until I was happy with the look. I stamped the background stamps with Turquoise paint and also some with white gesso. Then I added my stencil, and pasted through it with some Cosmic Shimmer Gold paste, when this was dry, I used a Black pen to add shadows to the raised design.


On a piece of heat resistant acetate, I stamped the Hummingbird with Versamark, and heat embossed with Black embossing powder, and fussy cut it. I then flipped it over and painted it on the reverse, with the Dyna paints. While it was drying, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto white card, cut it out and coloured it with Distress inks. I used some silk ribbon for the top, after I’d coloured it with Distress inks.

Many thanks for dropping in today.
