Design Team Intro | Judy Rozema

Hi and happy weekend! As we continue to introduce our wonderful Design Team this weekend, we are thrilled that another of our existing designers is staying on the team…


Judy Rozema


Judy is on our INSTAGRAM TEAM!


We adore Judy’s wonderfully varied style, from clean and simple striking designs to amazing gelli print backgrounds! Her beautiful cards are always so brilliantly co-ordinated!



I love to make cards from clean and simple to mixed media techniques, and everything in between, so my style is definitely eclectic! I try to create something daily to keep the joy and mojo flowing!

Judy created her striking background with Distress Oxide inks through our DISTORTED CHESS stencil. THE WHITE RABBIT was stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink, and embossed with Clear powder. He was coloured beautifully with Copic markers, and the sentiment [which resonates with many of us!] was also embossed. The image and sentiments were cut out and adhered using foam tape to raise them off the card, making them stand out from the vibrant background.

We will be back later to introduce more of our super talented team, along with more fantastic inspiration.


We hope you have a good Saturday.

We’re All Mad Here | Stencil

Hi there! We are back with more awesome inspiration here on the blog today. Jane Tyrrell has made some incredible samples with our Wonderland stamps so we were very excited to see what she would create with our NEW ‘Mad Here’ stencil…

Hello

Today I am sharing one of the fab new stencils with such a fun name:

I knew I just had to team it with 2 of the fun Wonderland character stamps:

and the very cheeky Cheshire Cat

I also used the skull jar/pot stamp from the Alice in Wonderland set

I decided to make a canvas to show them all off at their best.


I had a piece of card from my stash on which I had made a rainbow of colour using distress inks in bands across the card adding a few flicks of water for extra interest.



I applied black gesso through the stencil



which gave me this cool background.



I set it aside to dry while I stamped and coloured up my characters, tea pot and jars with zig watercolour pens. I fussy cut them out and added glossy accents to the cat’s eyes.


I then put my canvas together..

Thanks so much for stopping by.


Bye for now,

This is so much fun Jane! The black gesso looks fantastic against the rainbow colours and the characters and elements are coloured wonderfully!  Thank you ♡

Treat Me Like a Queen

Hello! Pauline Butcher has given our sassy Queen of Hearts stamp an inky makeover and we are loving it…

Hi there,

 

It’s time for me to share another of my creations, using some of the fantastic Visible Image products.

 


Queen of Hearts stamp



This card was created using:


The Queen of Hearts stamp set


queen of hearts - rubber - clear - stamp



and The Time Tunnel stencil


time tunnel - spiral - stencil

 


My background was actually some waste from another card I’d made.. I had used the Time Tunnel Stencil with Pixie Powders through it, and there was still a lot of product left on the stencil so, rather than waste it, I spritzed it with water, and pressed the stencil onto a piece of white card, like taking a print. I often use my stencils in this way, two for the price of one, so no wastage !!!!
 
As my background was covered with speckles, which were super shiny (unfortunately my photo’s don’t show the true extent of the shine from the pixie powders, which are full of mica), I decided that I wanted the Queen to have speckles too, so I splattered some Distress inks, mixed with a little water, using my fan brush, onto white card, then stamped Queenie onto it, and fussy cut her. I then used some watercolour pens to colour her in, and added Stardust Stickles to give her that extra bling!

Before attaching her with 3D Glue Gel, I blended some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink along the bottom of the background card, to ‘ground’ her, and also gently blended some Black soot around all the edges. To finish off, I stamped the hearts around the Queen, again using Distress Ink.
 


Thanks for dropping by.

Hugs,
Pauline xxxx



Your background is awesome Pauline! Perfect for your inky Queen of Hearts! Thank you ♡
