Hello there! Thank you for visiting us here on the Visible Image blogy.
We have a stunning project from Nicky Gilburt to share with you today…
I love love love this angel! A gorgeous stamp with accompanying word and a little angel too for adding backgrounds and extras.
I stamped and embossed the Angel and the word first. I then painted over her with Inkessentials glue and seal, which protects the image. Those tiny sparkles of white that shine through – if you lose them then you lose the effect, You can see I managed a 2mm border around her. Once dry, the ‘glue and seal’ resists all inks, so that the angel remains clean!
The background to this card was made by lightly rubbing 3 colours of distress ink over a square card and then stenciling through circles cut out of acetate, called the bokeh technique. Using light colours and whites it gives an ethereal affect to the card. A final touch was dots of white pen and a few sequins for sparkle!
These are the tools I used:
