Hello! We have some fantastic inspiration coming your way here on the blog today!
First up today is Heather Mitchell…
Well… what a snowy and cold week that was! I hope you’re all safe and got to throw a few snowballs, if that’s you’re thing, or managed to avoid them if it isn’t! I love the snow. I love watching the pupsters jump in it and shovel their nose through the powder only to come up with a big whale-type snort! Ha!
Anyway, enough of the cold stuff… let’s move onto to warmer climes with my latest Visible Image DT make..
So last Wednesday was my birthday and I met my lovely crafty friend for lunch and she suggested a wander round Hobbycraft (how could I refuse!). I managed to pick up a fabulous little globe die and I knew exactly what stamps would work perfectly with it.
I’m really into my tags at the moment and thought a tag would suit the travel theme perfectly so I layered up two different sized tags that I’ve die cut using a Sizzix/Tim Holtz combo. The larger tag I’ve then die cut again to add some interest to the bottom. After heat embossing Fibonacci in bright white, I’ve then built up the colour using Distress Oxide ink pads. To add extra detail, I stamped Elemental over the top lightly using a Sepia Archival Ink and then used the mesh stamp from the Mesh-ellaneous set around the edges.
For the top tag, I’ve used the fabulous Fibres stencil along with the new Resist Spray from Ranger. It’s very subtle but you can just see where the colour has resisted and made a mottled effect. To that, I’ve added Elemental (again using Archival’s Sepia ink pad) before heat embossing the rain stamp from Sparkle in the Rain in that gorgeous copper colour.
After die-cutting the globe, I’ve added the sentiments from the Destination Unknown stamps and layered them together before adhering to the card blank. Perfect for someone off on an adventure!
The Visible Image stamps I’ve used for this make are… (ta-da!)…
I hope you like today’s inspiration. Do check out the Visible Image blog homepage for some amazing makes by the other DT members… truly stunning work. Catch you next time…
