Creative Chaos | Inky Flower Stamps | Visible Image

Hello! We hope you are having a good weekend. Lisa Taggart is here on the blog this evening with a stunning card featuring the inky flower stamps from our ‘Creative Chaos’ stamp set…

I have the pleasure today to share more new release stamps from Visible Image. This time it’s the mixed media collection and oh my goodness what exciting new designs we have! You are going to love them.

I’ve kept my first sample simple. The stamps speak for themselves!


Here are the steps..

To begin, as ever… inky scraps! These were created using spectrum noir aquatint ink placed onto acetate and pressed against card then lifted. It’s a cool technique and gives interesting colour combinations and patterns.

I enhanced the colours with ink pads and then began to build the layers.

I hope you like it!

Till next time…

Kindness | Flower Stamps | Visible Image

Hi there! We have Pauline here on the blog today with a really striking card created with some of our new quirky flower stamps…


I’m back with a card I’ve created using one of the fantastic new stamp sets from Visible Image: Random Art of Kindness, with their super Stars and Stripes stencil.

On a piece of watercolour card, I placed the stencil, and blended through it with Salty Ocean Distress ink on the stars side, and Picked Raspberry on the striped side, then with a water spritzer, I soaked the card, and held it to drip, stars up, so’s that the ink ran and spread, I left it to dry naturally.
Then on a piece of smooth white card, I stamped six of the daisy flowers using a Versafine Onyx Black ink pad, I coloured them in with Clean color brush pens, and fussy cut three large flowers, and just the centres of the other three.

Going back to the dry background, I blended lightly with Salty Ocean Distress Ink, on any of the white area’s, I stamped three flowers with black ink, then using the funky stem with Salty Ocean Oxide Ink, I stamped the stems. I added the flowers using 3D glue gel, stamped the words onto a piece of blue card, and added them to the background. I used a 5B pencil to put shadows on the stars, and also highlights with a white pen, also around the words, and black Stickles in the middle of the flowers.

Products Used:

kindness stamp - quirky flower


stars and stripes stencil - USA flag

Kindness | Flower | Card

Hello! Do you love clean and simple cards? We adore them, and our new stamps really lend themselves to this style of card as well as for more inky mixed media styles. Sharon Traynor has created such an elegant and striking card with our NEW ‘Random Art of Kindness’ stamp set, which includes some really funky hand drawn flowers…

Oh boy!

I am absolutely LOVING this latest release from Visible Image.

flower stamp | kindness | card

I know the images in some of the stamp sets were made with art journalling in mind, and that they suit mixed media really well…. but they are also PERFECT for the CAS genre. So I guess that’s why I’m a happy bunny. I made 12 cards with the new sets in 2 afternoons at the weekend, including a bit of glossy accents and other stuff. The most cards I’ve managed in one afternoon before now is 3  –  so I doubled my productivity with these new sets. It’s easy when you love the stamps you are using!

Want a peek at the samples that I sent to Helen and Mark at Visible Image last week?

Ha ha! I can’t give too much away because I’m sure there will be a Facebook Live event sometime soon where some of these will be shown….. and of course there are one or two that I would love to blog about! Anyway, in that stack somewhere is today’s card.

As soon as I saw this Random Art Of Kindness stamp set I knew it was going to be a firm favourite, and the first thing that I wanted to do with it was something that you wouldn’t necessarily associate with the beautiful grungy and mixed media pieces that everyone makes with Visible Image stamps. For me, this particular stamp was just crying out to be zentangled – so I did.

I am no expert in zentangling, in fact I’m not sure that I have ever made a card with zentangling on it, but this is a passable try. Anyhow, in an effort not to completely overload this post with photos.

I have set up two different pages for the full step by step of how I did these Zentangled petals
which you can see by clicking HERE for part 1 and HERE for part 2.

This next bit however, is the step by step tutorial for everything else with just the final photo of each petal.

To make this card:

Stamp the flower twice, and then colour in the flower ‘centre’ on one image with the black micron pen (this will be the one we zentangle on). Colour the other flower centre with a versamark clear pen and heat emboss with black embossing powder, then fussy cut that embossed centre piece out (that one will be raised up on foam on the final flower).

These are small pictures of each petal as I completed it.

Petal 1 and 2

Petal 3 and 4

Petal 5 and 6

Petal 7 and 8

Petal 9

Once the flower has been completely zentangled, fussy cut it out and set it to one side with the heat embossed flower centre.

Take a piece of 13cm x 13cm white card and make the border like this

When you have completed the border, stamp the stem into place. You can use the flower stamp to help get the placement correct.

Mount the panel onto some white and black paper and attach it all to a 15cm x 15cm card blank.

Layer the flower up using 3d foam pads, add a pearl to the centre and attach it to the card.

Finally heat emboss the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card, cut it into a banner and attach that to the front of the card on 3d foam too.

So I had to actually recreate this card because I was so ‘in the zone’ when I created the original one that I forgot to take the step by step photos. Here are both cards.The original card is on the left and the reproduced one is on the right. The only real difference that I can see is in the size of the zentangled border, so I’d say that you could quite easily batch produce some of these cards.


Stamps Used:

flower stamps - hand drawn - hope - kindness

Other Supplies:

Versafine Obyx Black ink, Versamark clear ink and pen, Heat it Up! Black embossing powder, WOW! Opaque Bright White Superfine embossing powder, Pigmaa Micron Fineliner pens (sizes 005, 0.5 and 0.8),3d foam, pear centre, black and white card and paper.

I hope you enjoyed this trip down zentangle lane! I will be back a little later with a masculine card!

Creative Chaos | Inky Flower Stamp | Visible Image

Hello! Thank you for visiting our blog today. Sorry it’s been a little neglected lately, there just haven’t been enough hours in the day, for a good reason though.. we are really feeling the love for our new stamps, and we are blown away by all the orders! We’ve just about caught up with ourselves, so now it’s time to share lots of gorgeous inspiration with you. Our Design Team are absolutely loving creating with our new designs! Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog today with the first of two absolutely stunning cards, featuring the beautiful inky flower stamp from our NEW ‘Creative Chaos’ set…

Good Afternoon

It is time for me to share my first Design Team card for Visible Image using their brand new awesome mixed media stamps. Every single one of the 6 sets in the release have so much to offer our creativity!

This is the set I have worked with for my first card today.. it is just brilliant.

The sunshine here made me reach for my sunny palette.

The sun was streaming in on the day I made it I was so inspired to use happy yellow and orange  distress inks, despite the frost on the ground.

I also got out my much used Tale of 2 cities book, and used some pages to stamp the larger inky flower stamp on to.

I fussy cut out one of the images. I also stamped the image onto the card front and added some edging using the fab DNA stamp.

This is my finished card…

These are the distress inks I worked with…

When I design my cards I often work on a sample first which I use to test out placement etc… most are kept for a reference and not mounted up. However when I was making my flower card I actually rather liked the sample version too so I thought that I would also share it to show how well these stamps work in any colour way..

I have also been working with the new butterfly set, so will be back to share my card a little later.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bye for now,
