Imagine Dream Inspire – Visible Image stamps

Hello There! Hope you had a great weekend!

Thanks so much for coming to see us here on the Visible Image stamps blog today ūüôā As always on a Monday the very talented Kim Bacon is here to inspire you…

Hello! Well, I don’t know what it was like for you over the weekend but it was bloomin’ lovely here! Fab amounts of sunshine, nice and warm, and altogether very ‘summery’. Let’s hope that it keeps going right through till October!

There was also the eclipse which at first glance seemed to be spoiled by an unusually thick fog. However, this worked to my advantage as it allowed me to get some fab shots. Here is one of the 100+ shots I took! This one was taken about 9:35 so at the height of the eclipse. It was eerily quiet and everything was bathed in a yellow glow.

Right, on to the matter in hand, my inspirational make for Visible Image. I have been reading a lot about this tissue technique just lately. Well, let me tell you I have been doing it for ages! I stumbled across it purely by accident when I placed a very wet and inky piece of kitchen roll onto a piece of card by mistake. Initially I was annoyed at the waste of the piece of card but quickly realised that it was actually a good use of the inky tissue!

This little book is made form a piece of card which had a soggy wet inky tissue laid out on it, I intended to use the tissue for another project so I had opened it out to dry quicker. I was doubly pleased as the card it was lying on ended up with some beautiful staining.

All in all a very pleasing result I think. I am crazy about making these little books at the moment, they take a little while but make a change from my other current project, my ATC365 which is a quick 30 minute project once a day. These books give me something to get involved in.

Fabulous project from Kim! Imagine Dream Inspire is one of our older stamp designs but still so popular, perhaps because it’s timeless and just so useful ūüôā

Hello again! Happy Saturday to you ūüôā ¬†Hope you have a great evening planned.

Over to Amber for today’s second dose of awesome Visible Image inspiration…

Today I wanted to share a page out of my watercolor art journal.  I started by watercoloring my background.  Next I used stencils to sponge and spritz some polkadots.  Then I went crazy with stamps! I used six different Visible Image stamps.  I especially love how the plaid background stamp looks on art journal pages.  And how awesome is that sentiment stamp!? Love it!
