Angel | Face Stamps

Hello, sorry we have been neglecting our blog lately. Hopefully you follow us on Facebook so will have seen all the live demos we have been doing to keep your crafty mojo flowing. We have lots of inspiration to share with you here on the blog over the coming week, and we are kicking off with our fabulous Pauline Butcher who has some rainbow challenge inspiration featuring our face stamps…

Hi there,

I hope you are all staying well and safe.

I’ve created a card as a tribute to all the Nurses on the front line, doing an absolutely fantastic job, along with all the Doctors, and of course all the other key workers, who are working hard to keep us safe and fed, in this unprecedented time. There is a Rainbow challenge in the Visible Image Facebook Group, it would be great if you would all enter, not only to show all the NHS and key workers that we care, but to brighten up this uncertain world.

The Visible Image products I used on this card are:

face stamps

Guardian Angel stamp

inspiring quote stamps | believe in me

square route stencil


I used a piece of mixed media card stock and cut it to 6″ x 8″, placed the stencil on it, and with my blending brushes and distress inks I made diagonal stripes of colour, filling the card. I took away the stencil, then cut off 2″ from the 8″ side ( for sentiments).

I stamped the face in the middle of the card, using Versafine Onyx Black ink using a stamp platform, so that I could make the image nice and dark by stamping it 3 or 4 times. I used bleach to lighten the whites of the eyes, and pens for her eye shadow. I then used pink Stickles for her lips and her eye shadow. When the Stickles was dry, I then went over the lips again with some Glossy Accents, I also added it to the eyes.


I worked on the sentiments next, using the 2″ of card I cut off the side. I stamped all three sentiments using Versafine Onyx Black, trying to get the stripes of colour to go in the opposite direction, so they stand out more, I also distressed the edges with Salty Ocean distress ink, and adhered them onto the card with 3D Glue gel.


Now that the topper is finished, I put it onto black card, then onto a 7″ square white card blank. I used a white pigment pen to highlight the eyes, and all the sentiments.

Thank you for visiting, stay safe and stay well.

Hugs, Pauline xxxxxxx
