Eye Collage Stamp | Distress Inks | Visible Image

Hello! We have Pauline back on the blog today with a super stunning card featuring our amazing eye collage stamp called ‘See Everything’…


Hi there,

Today I’m sharing a card I made using the awesome (and very popular) ‘See Everything stamp set from Visible Image.
 
Get your sunglasses on, because it’s very bright!!!!
 


I stamped the fabulous stamp, onto some white card, and then stamped it again on another piece of card. I also cut a mask from a post it note, to cover the eye, then coloured my background using Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean Distress Inks, blending them onto the card and overlapping them to make six colours. I gently spritzed with a little water, then removed the post it mask which kept the eye nice and white.

Taking the other stamped image, I fussy cut the inside of the eye and then cut around the eye, following the black lines, so there was a border and some circles (you can see it in the photo below). I also cut out some of the larger circles. Next I started to colour, using my Clean Color brush pens, and a white pen.


 
 


I also stamped around the edges using Pink Raspberry Oxide ink, and coloured in some of the circles to balance. I stamped both sentiments onto white card, and again blended with the distress inks. I attached all the elements using 3D glue Gel, then added some stickles here and there. Finally I gave it some white eyelashes, and glossy accents over the pupil.







Hugs,
Pauline xxxxx

See What Others Don’t | Visible Image | Eye Collage Stamp

Hi there! Lisa Taggart is here on the blog today with an incredible project featuring our awesome eye collage stamp…


Today I’m using one of my favourites from the last release! ‘See Everything’ It’s GORGEOUS!! And so versatile. Use it as it is, use parts of it, or as I’m doing today, flip it to make a face using the rice paper / tissue paper and Matt gel medium trick! The sentiment set is awesome too!


 



I also couldn’t resist teaming it up with an old favourite!


 

To begin I used an inky scrap from my ink mop up pile . I began by adding more texture with ink and water splatters and by highlighting and brightening parts with ink.








I stamped the image down one side and then stamped the top part of the same thing again on to rice paper.





This was then flipped and adhered to the project using matt gel medium.









I then hand drew a nose and eyebrow and stamped the mouth from the other stamp set.




Then the fun part- the colouring. I used Zig clean colour pens. I also covered the eyes and splattered black ink. The sentiment was added to the top left. Gold and white highlights were added using gel pens.










I really enjoyed this project. Hope you have a go.


Till next time..

Eye Rubber Stamp | Rocker Card | Distress Inks

Hi there! We have Jane Tyrrell here on the blog today with a fabulous rocker card featuring lots of our stamps, including our stunning new eye collage stamp..



For this week’s project, I worked with 4 of the new mixed media stamp sets and my colour palette was inspired by all the spring colours around at the moment.





Stamps Used:









I decided to make a rocker card, as I have not made one of these for years and it is a fun card shape. There are lots of tutorials of how to construct the card on the Internet. The circle dies I used to cut the layers and rocker are from The Works.

I stamped the eye image onto card and coloured it with distress inks



then masked it before adding some more distress inks



The background layer is a gelli plate print using the Random Art of Kindness set



I cut the rocker using pink card and then put everything together.



I fussy cut my butterflies which were stamped on pink card, I also added some colour to my focal image using gel pens.



Here are some close ups..






and one last shot..



Thanks for stopping today and enjoy the wonderful fresh colours of spring.


Back soon.


Bye for now,

Jane x

Eye Collage Stamp | See Everything | Visible Image

Hello! We hope your week has started well. We are back with more fantastic inspiration here on the blog today. Up first is Sharon Traynor with an incredible card featuring our new eye collage stamp…

When I first set eyes on this brilliant ‘See Everything’ stamp from Visible ImageI immediately saw references to the film  ‘The Matrix’.

Do you know that on 31st March this year it will be 20 years since that film was released?  It really doesn’t feel like 20 years…. until you watch it again and notice how big the PC monitors were back in 1999 and how much phone technology has changed in the last 20 years. It’s still a cracking film though.



eye stamp - see everything



Anyway, how did I make a link to the matrix? Well, those little circles reminded me of the lines of code that descend and sparkle on the computer screens in the film. The lines radiating out from the eye in the centre reminded me of a sort of a scanner, and scanning for Morpheus, Neo, Trinity and other humans was what Agent Smith was doing in the film. The two figures at the bottom of the stamp reminded me that the human race (those that were awake from the matrix) had descended into the earth and were living in Zion. And finally there is the sentiment; only those that were awake from the matrix could see what others didn’t. So, I had to make a card in greens, black and smokey grey with a touch of sparkle as homage, didn’t I?


This is how I made the card:


First the larger circles were coloured with some green Promarkers. Only 3 colours were used as shading and an uncoloured white spot was left on each circle as a highlight.



Then all the small circles, the eye and the figures at the bottom of the stamp were coloured




Next I added some cracked pistachio distress ink by softly blending from a piece of paper aligned to some of the lines radiating out from the eye, to try to imitate the laser type scanners that you often see in movies.




After that I added glossy accents to each individual tiny circle (but not to the larger ones) and left it to dry overnight.




On the next day I wanted to add the sparkle and some darkness to the piece. So I used a charcoal pencil and drew some rough lines over the image and smudged them with my finger. I thought this sort of represented the movement of the lines code falling down the screen.



Then some glamour dust was added to give that representation of sparkle, and hickory smoke distress ink was blended over the two sides of the piece.



The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of card coloured with a matching promarker and three of the corners of the sentiment piece were rounded before it was backed with fun foam. I mounted the whole thing onto a card blank and added two slim pieces of black card on the two outside edges.
