Christmas Sprite | Face Stamp

Hello and Happy Monday to you! We hope you had a lovely weekend.. don’t they go fast!!! We are kicking off another week of gorgeous inspiration with Jane Tyrrell, featuring our beautiful soul face stamp on a Christmas card…


Good Afternoon,

It is getting much colder now and we really are speeding towards Christmas…just 44 days to go..ho ho ho!

The shops are selling their 2019 festive baubles. I spotted these the other day…so festive and wintry.




I was inspired by the wintry baubles to make something festive to show how incredible versatile the Beautiful Soul girl is

When I first saw this set my first thoughts were to make her into a Christmas sprite. I’m sorry the photo below has shadow but it is getting darker in my garden studio now. It will soon be time for me to retreat indoors again to craft. I blended wilted violet, mermaid lagoon and pumice stone distress oxides across a piece of watercolour card. I then stamped the medium snowflake from Snow is Falling in white ink (this Christmas set has sold out on the website but you may well find it at your local stockist or craft shows) .



Once dry I stamped the girl using Versafine ink.
I stamped and white embossed the swirl and snowflakes from the Snowman Jack set

and a festive sentiment from Sentimental Christmas

I then stamped and white embossed some more small snowflakes in her hair.




Here is my finished sprite..



And a couple of close ups.. I added some blue pen as icy lipstick….brr she looks very chilly doesn’t she!






And one last shot..

Face Stamp | Beautiful Soul

Good Evening! We have Ericka Strange here on the blog tonight with 2 incredible cards created with our gorgeous new ‘Beautiful Soul’ face stamp…


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful day. Today I’m playing with the new release from Visible Image called Beautiful Soul. I love this set and the beautiful words it contains.

I started by stamping the image on Bristol Smooth paper and gold heat embossing it.  My oldest daughter saw me making it and asked if I could use red on her hair and make the middle yellow. So I took out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and used a variety of pink and reds to color her hair as well as yellows for the middle.

Once I was finished I used a sparkle pen on the hair to give it a little more shine. For the background, I blended Antique Linen Distress Oxide and a light Black soot on the edges. I heat embossed the sentiments in gold and added some sequins for some extra shine.

I love this set so much that I had to make one with blue hair as well.

I made this similarly to the one above. I used Bristol Smooth paper and heat embossed it with Silver. My youngest daughter, whose name is Elsa, saw the first card and wanted me to make her one, thus the “Let it Go” look.


I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to color her hair and decided to add a little sparkly silver embossing to the middle of her hair. I then added some silver sequins I had in my stash to give her a more regal winter look.

I finished by stamping the “Let it Go” with a Concord & 9th set Perfectly Penned and then used the other sentiments in the Visible Image set to add to her.

Get Up | Dress Up | Face Stamp

Hello! We have Sharon Traynor here on the blog this evening with a fabulous card featuring our NEW ‘Beautiful Soul’ face stamp with our ‘Never Give Up’ sentiment…


Happy Monday!

I have some no-line colouring of a gorgeous image from the BRAND NEW RELEASE by Visible Image. She is an absolute dream to colour, if you like colouring, and she comes with so many gorgeous words too. The sentiment on this card is from a new set too.


Here’s how I made this DL card.


Take some Strathmore Toned Grey sketch paper and stamp the image onto it using a light grey ink.


I started with the face. Using some polychromos pencils and a very light touch I started to colour, adding white to the areas I wanted a highlight first (because you can’t really add a highlight afterwards). Then I added more colour moving from light to dark, adding a little blue to the darker parts.  I wanted to retain the look of hand colouring so the pencil strokes have not been completely blended in. I am still learning how to colour like this so I knew it wouldn’t be perfect, but I like the finished result.

Next colour the hair. I used 3 colours for the hair, adding low-lights with the dark colour and highlights with the lighter colour.  Making sure the highlights don’t line up over every strand gives it a more natural look.

 



To finish the card I stamped a sentiment and some of the words along the edge, then doodled a border in between the stamped words with a black pen.


 

Stamps Used:

heartfelt sentiment stamps | visible image


Other Supplies:

Strathmore toned grey sketch paper, Memento london fog ink, Polychromos (101 white, 102 cream, 126 permanent carmine, 130 dark flesh, 131 medium flesh, 132 light flesh, 151 helio-blue reddish, 183 light yellow ochre, 187 burnt ochre, 283 burnt sienna), Versafine onyx black, stamping platform, black micron pen.


That’s it from me for now. Thanks for stopping by and I really hope to see you again soon.


Hugs,
Sharon xx

Life Can Be Tough | Face Stamps

Hello! We hope you are having a great weekend! Stempelfrida is here on the blog today with a gorgeous card featuring our face stamps, with a sentiment from our NEW ‘Brave and Strong’ stamp set…


I am mega enthusiastic about the new words of the Visible Image Autumn release, and today I have combined an older set with “Life can be tough but my darling so are you”. Whoa!!!! What a wonderful source of inspiration for my card.



You may not believe it, which of the card was a challenge, but it is the face. First, how do I want the proportions? Because the eye stamp with the eyebrow and the mouth stamp, on which the nose is only indicated, are two stamps. Without having drawn anything from my face, it was not so easy for me to decide how big the distance should be. And then, of course, there’s the colouration. And there is almost nothing of the facial contour after stamping. Of course this offers you a white canvas for your artistic freedom. It was faszinating to see the woman under the pencils emerge. The colouration is done with copics and polychromos. The zipper is also coloured with copics and glued on the cut out face. I designed my background with acrylic paints.






Supplies

Brave and Strong
