Transform | Skull Stencil | Butterfly Stamp

Hi! We are really excited to welcome Stempelfrida to the blog today with her debut post as a Guest Designer! We love how she has used our skull stencil in a really pretty way…

Yipieyayeahhhh! Dabadoooo and strike, finally I can show you my first card I made with the Visible Image products. I was invited to be a guest designer for Visible Image for three months. First I was allowed to choose a generous package of their goodies and that has not only arrived with me in the meantime (THANK YOU!!!!!), but I was also already creative. Here comes my first piece of art!

skull stencil - card

First I sketched the skull template with a pencil, so that I had an idea where the butterflies were to be distributed. Then I stamped the butterflies randomly over the open places. For this I took the skull template again, so that I got the white line at the edges. The mask has a big free area in the left part with the matching edge and so I used it upside down to keep the edges free when stamping the butterflies. The picture is not upside down as you might have thought it would be. Then I outlined the edges of the skull with a multiliner. You can see this in the photo.


I used Copics for my colouration. The butterflies as well as the backgrounds are designed with it. Have you noticed it? To achieve a very special effect, I let the skull go over the white part on the right side. I also overlapped one or the other stroke of the butterfly.

For the white greyish parts I worked with white acrylic paint and the Fibres stencil. I had already suspected that the colour would take on a slightly greyish tone and used this to draw white structures on the edges with a Signo marker. At the bottom of the image I drew free hand with acrylic pencils.

The writing is stamped with Versamark and embossed in white.

So, what do you think? Do you want to see more of what I made with the Visible Image products?
