Good Morning and Happy Saturday to you! It’s a beautiful day here in Wales, the sun is shining and the trees are displaying all the gorgeous Autumnal colours. We are counting down to the release date of our amazing new stamps and stencils, so we will be sharing lots of brand new inspiration here on the blog! Heather Mitchell is here this morning with an amazing card featuring 2 of our new stencils with our stunning new ‘You Are Not Alone’ stamp set…
I’ve been playing with my Gelli plate recently and had prepared some backgrounds (using some of the Visible Image beautiful products naturally!) and I was itching to use them, so when the gorgeous new stamps and stencils landed on my door mat I knew exactly what to do with them!
The first card uses the new 1983 stencil and all I’ve done is simply draw around the outlines using a Derwent Inktense pencil in a matching purple hue and then used a teeny tiny brush to water the edges and blur them slightly.
To add to the geometric vibe, I’ve then used the new Two Tone stencil with some Graphite Texture Paste.
The hands on the You Are Not Alone stamp set are truly amazing! I didn’t want to stamp them onto card and then fussy cut them out as I wanted a more translucent look, so I’ve heat embossed onto vellum, adding the sentiment from the set first in white and then in copper powder (to create a slight shading).
The flash of light that I’ve positioned beaming out the finger, has been heat embossed in several metallic shades (copper, platinum and rich gold) and I’ve added a few adhesive gems to finish it off before matting it onto purple pearlised card and attaching to a 7×7″ card blank.
The second card started life as the ghost print of the Gelli print used above. A ghost print is where you take off the excess ink on the Gelli plate after you’ve already pulled a print. This print is usually faded and lighter in appearance but very often they’re my favourite print as you can get some fantastic texture coming through!
The gorgeous Hummingbird, from the Life is Beautiful set, looks fabulous positioned over where the Strobe stencil has left a textured gold print and has been heat embossed in a beautiful sparkly amethyst colour. To finish, I’ve added the sentiment from Voices In Your Head set and matted it onto matching turquoise card before adhering to a card 7×7″ blank.
Here are the NEW Visible Image products I used for these cards:
