Make Someone Smile | Happy Card

Hello! We hope your week has started well. We have lots of gorgeous inspiration coming your way over the next few days which will hopefully lift your spirits. Ali Carubia has inked up our HAPPY DAY stamp set which includes some quirky flowers and a fabulous rainbow stamp to make a colourful happy card…


It might be cold and grey outside but I have some Visible Image positivity and colour to brighten up your day.

I’ve used the Happy Day stamp set to create this little happy flower card. I’ve used Zig Clean colour watercolour pens but you could use anything to colour, just switch out the Versafine Clair ink pad for a Momento ink pad to stamp with if you are going to use alcohol markers.



Cut a piece of white A4 stamping card in half, score and fold one of the pieces into an A6 card.

Cut down the second piece down to about 3 3/8″ x 5 1/8″.



Fix this card to your mat using a little masking tape, then stamp the rainbow in the top left using black versafine clair ink.



Stamp the flower heads across the middle of the card at different level



Scribble a little colour from your pens onto your mat then use a damp brush to colour in the images.



Use a black fine liner to draw stems and leaves onto the lower flower heads.

Doodle a different shape leaf for the different flowers.



Draw in the stems and leaves for the remaining flowers, being careful not to draw over the leaves of the front flowers.

Colour the leaves in green.



Stamp “Smile” in black versafine clair onto scrap white card.

Then colour in rainbow shades and cut it out.



Mount the coloured cards onto black card with a border of approx 1/16″ for the smile and 3/16″ for the larger piece.

Glue the large piece flat onto your A6 card blank and the sentiment raised up with double sided foam tape.


Your card will look a bit like this, your final task is to pick which friend you are going to send this colourful smile to and brighten their day.

Stay Creative | Mixed Media Art

Good Evening! We hope you are doing ok, and staying safe and well. Heather Mitchell is here to brighten our blog today with a gorgeous mixed media card featuring our ‘Total Chaos’ stamps…


Hello…

Today’s make uses the Total Chaos stamps from Visible Image but I’ve omitted the large central flower and concentrated on the other smaller stamps in the set.


quirky flower stamps


As fabulous as the huge flower is (and it really is!) the other stamps in the set are just as fabulous on their own too.



I began by filling a 7×7″ section of watercolour card with Distress Oxide ink pads in blues, and then ripped some scrap paper to create a mask for the grass.  For extra texture, I used the polka dots from the Two Tone stencil and used the same greens on those.



The dinky florals and leaves have been heat embossed onto watercolour card, coloured using watercolours and then fussy-cut out.



Before securing everything in place, I’ve measured where the small yellow flower was going and then heat embossed the scribble using gold powder so that it sat underneath.



I also heat embossed the sentiment on at this point using WOW!’s Opaque Bright White powder and then heat embossed the ‘TY’ at the end using a green powder and coloured using watercolours.



It was simply a case of layering the florals up using foam tape and dots.  As you can see. I’ve used good ol’ Glossy Accents on some parts of the flower to highlight certain parts and a give bit of shine!




Products Used:


Mixed Media stamps | flower | leaves | scribble


Two Tone stencil | circles | squares



A really magnificent stamp set that I absolutely adore. You can find lots of inspiration over in the Visible Image Facebook group and of course on instagram (*top tip* search out the #visibleimage tag for more makes!)

Kindness Journal Page | Quirky Flower Stamps | Visible Image

Hello and Happy Monday! We hope you had a lovely weekend. Lisa Taggart is here on the blog today with a wonderful art journal page featuring some of our quirky flower stamps…


Hello my friends today I’m sharing an art journalling project using one of the latest stamp sets: Random Art of Kindness


Here’s what the finished project looks like


 


This project combines a number of things:- a left over gel press print scrap, some inking with distress oxides, some collage again using scraps, stamping, including stamping on to tissue paper, brayering with acrylic paint, doodling and colouring ! – a whole mixture of fun!


Here are some photos to show how it developed


I began with aleft over scrap from a gel press session.







After some stamping I stamped some of the flowers on to printed tissue paper, cut out the images and adhered them to the picture.







The torn leftovers were adhered to the bottom of the picture using gel medium.




I roughly used my brayer and buttermilk coloured acrylic paint to add more texture and interest.



To finish off the project I added splatters, stamped the stems and used gold high flow acrylic paint to draw leaves and stems freehand. I continued to highlight the flowers using a white gel pen and posca paint pens. I also added some doodling here and there. I stamped the sentiment on to white card and added this separately and randomly stamped some of the other sentiments from the set along the stems.














This is such a gorgeous page Lisa! So much to see and we are loving all your gorgeous texture.
Thank you Lisa! ♡
