Hello and thank you for coming to visit our blog today!
After a very well deserved break, our Design team are back!!! Today we have TWO new inspirational posts for you. Kicking off the New Year in style we have the very first Visible Image stamps post from our NEW DT member Zoey…
First and foremost, I want to wish you all a really Happy New Year!! I am so eager to kick off the year with a new project for you.
This time I created an ATC card using stamps from Visible Image.
To those who do not know Visible Image yet (where have you been living!?!? LOL JK), they are a really sweet and talented company from UK that supply a variety of really good quality stamps.
The stamps I have used for this ATC are :
– Make me smile set
– Crackled Background
– Bronte Script
To create the backround, I simply added few strips of washi tape onto the cardstock cut into an ATC size — then I covered it up with a generous amount of gesso. I let it dry and then added Gelatos. When everything was dry, it was time to stamp!! I took the Bronte Script and without using the acrylic block I stamped here and here, I did the same thing with the Crackled Background — but using a third generation stamp because I wanted to create a soft look. I stamped my sentiment covering the part where it said “second chance” and stamped it into the background using Stampers Big Brush by Faber Castell.
The “Second Chance” was stamped on a separate piece of white cardboard because I wanted to add dimension to the sentiment.
I stamped the Butterfly
on a separate cardboard too, colored it using Gelatos again and I fussy cut it.
Before adhering everything, I added some more texture using a stencil and Whipped Spackle by Design Memory Craft. Then, when everything was completely dry, I glued every piece together.
To add even more texture I decided I wanted to glue the ATC over a piece of recycled cardboard that I covered up with a bit of gesso to make everything connect.
What do you think about it?
