Garden of Tranquility | ATCs

Hi there! We hope you are keeping safe and staying well. We have Jane Tyrrell on the blog today with some fabulous inspiration featuring our ‘Random Art’ flower stamps…


Hello! It’s time for my latest design team inspiration for Visible Image.

My garden has been even more important to me this year and the recent landscaping has been a godsend. I have spent many mindful hours outside nurturing my plants and everything is looking so summery now that my summer bedding pots have come into flower.


 

 

 

 


So all these provided my inspiration for my project today, a set of 5 artist trading cards.
Artist trading cards measure 3 1/2 X 2 1/2″ and I make them to swap with my crafty friends and my little granddaughter.

I called this set my “Garden of tranquility”

I used 2 stamp sets;


Random Art of Kindness


quirky flower stamps | kindness | hope | tranquility


and the daisy stamp from Break Free


daisy stamp | smashed vase | break free



This is what I got up to;


I used oxide ink to stamp the background using one of the flowers and archival ink for the “stem” from the ‘Random Art of Kindness’ set.




I stamped the daisy from the ‘Break Free’ stamp set onto some left over alcohol ink yupo and distress inky mop up card and cut them out.




I stamped the “rose” flower from the ‘Random Art of Kindness’ set onto different scraps of inky card and chose the 3 I liked best and cut them out.


I added a little accent of gold stickles to each flower




and I stamped the small words from ‘Random Art of Kindness’ set onto kraft card and cut them into little plant markers.



Here they are finished

Imagine Dream Inspire

Hi there! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration this evening. Lynn Good is here with her latest project…


Hi everyone, today I want to share some Artist Trading Cards that I have made for the Visible Image Design Team.





I have made four cards, measuring 2.5 in x 3.5 in.
I began with a piece of watercolour hot pressed paper that is 300 gsm.
I have stuck to three colours of distress inks and have blended them together on the paper



I have then used the same colours through 3 Visible Image stencils – Strobes, Time Tunnel and Fibres

 


Again using the same colours I have stamped randomly with a mixture of stamps that I have listed and linked to the Visible Image store at the bottom of the blog.

 


I have then cut the paper into the 2.5 x 3.5 inches and stamped the focal point with black ink and used a sparkle embossing powder over the top.
The big words were stamped with blank ink.



Here are some close ups:
