Hi there! As summer is in full swing there’s no better time to create ‘under the sea’ themed cards and projects! Our NEW Ripped fishnet stamp is a perfect fit for this, and Heather Mitchell has combined it with our gorgeous jellyfish stamp and more to create an amazing mixed media scene for today’s inspiration…
Today I’m sharing a bit of a busy make using the new Ripped Fishnet stencil from the wonderful Visible Image.
I started with a basic green and grey shaded background to which I then added the Ripped Fishnet stencil. Over the stencil I added a mixture of Chipped Sapphire, Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans Oxide Ink.
For some reason (and I have absolutely no idea why) I decided to add these large green bubble shapes which I’m not sure about now. I used the Mesh It Up and centre of the Daisy Daisy stencils to add some interest to them and splattered them with white Posca pen and indian ink.
The Ripped Fishnet stencil is crying out for sea themed makes and I had to do one to get it out my system so I grabbed the Dare to Swim and Art Rebel stamp sets for those gorgeous fish! The fish were heat embossed onto a tag I hadn’t made into anything… and the jellyfish stamped and then clear embossed to seal the colours.
The jelly fish was coloured using a mixture of Derwent Intense pencils and Arteza Brush Pens before being trimmed and set aside.
I decided to add some fine-liner scribble around the bubble shapes and then added the Scripted Streets text stamp dotted around for some extra texture. For a little bit of sparkle, I added the cute shoal of fish in WOW’s Aquamarine powder and they do look lovely and shimmery.
For the seaweed, again I’ve clear embossed over Distress Oxide inks and coloured as I did the jelly fish. They’ve then been layered on the card using foam dots with the fish woven in and out.
The images have been layered and I’ve added some glossy accents to the circles on the jelly fish and dotted a few around as bubbles.
The sentiment, courtesy of the 2020 Vision set, has been stamped twice to create a slight shadow and I’ve given the large circle the glossy accents treatment to match the rest of the card.
It’s a very busy card and a bit quirky but I kind of like that! Here are the Visible Image products I’ve used for the make…
If you’re a Visible Image fan, I hope you’ve managed to catch some of the Facebook Lives Helen and Mark have been doing. Mark has been demoing the new stamps and stencils and showing the design team samples we have all made. Loads of new inspiration every day on both instagram and Facebook group, and not just by the DT, by everyone… and every one is amaaaazing so do check it out.
I’ll be back soon with another Visible Image make… bye for now xx
