Bloom and Grow

Hi there! We have loads of amazing inspiration coming your way over the next few days!

First up on the blog today is Lisa Taggart with an incredible project featuring our NEW ‘Bloom and Grow’ stamp set.. a really ‘alternative’ baby set…


Hello everyone it’s Visible Image day again! Today’s piece was briefly shared on the day of the 2018 new stamp launch in early January. It’s also been lucky enough to travel to Creativation! Time now  to share it in a little more detail.

Here are the stamp sets I used. Firstly the new set:

And some older favourites:


Leave Your Fears




Create it




To create the piece the baby image was heat embossed in black on to watercolour card and then masked using masking fluid. The background was sprayed using a mixture of ink sprays including mica sprays. I wanted the area around the image to be bright and to gradually darken into a mix of colours. I used a bright yellow acrylic ink for the centre. I liked the textures created by the sprays.

The finger print was stamped in black and then again using stamping glue. Gilding flakes were added on top. It wasn’t entirely successful but from certain angles the gold flecks shine through.

To create the roots I selected two elements from the other sets. These, along with the leaves and ‘love’ sentiment were heat embossed in black. I also sprinkled some granules of black embossing power either side of the image to create more texture.

The masking fluid was removed and the flower in the centre coloured pink. I blended distress oxide ink in blue and black around the edges. Some extra aqua tint ink in gold and black was flicked for good measure!

The artwork was mounted onto complimentary card. The sentiment stamped, inked and mounted underneath as the final touch.

A little different I think you will agree!


I recommend these stamps. Lovely quality and very versatile.

Baby Love

Hello! We have lots of wonderful inspiration coming your way here on the blog today.

First up is Pauline Butcher with a fabulous plaque…

Hi there,
 
It’s time for another of my creations, using some more of the brand new Visible Image Stamp sets.

As you probably know, Helen and Mark were over in Phoenix, for the Creativation Show, showing the US the awesome new stamps that they have designed. This is one of the samples they took with them…
 





The stamps I used on this plaque are…


Fibonacci




Bloom & Grow




and ‘Organics




I used a plaque I had in my stash, the top part of it is grey-board, I coated this with my Dylusion paints, using a blending tool, I used 5 colours, and let it dry.


 


Using a gold ink pad, I stamped the Fibonacci, and I also stamped a couple of the Organics at the bottom of the plaque, using a Distress Ink. I then stamped the brilliant thumb print, using an embossing pad, and heat embossed it with white embossing powder, I also heat embossed the sentiment at the top, this time with black powder.

 




I stamped the baby, onto a piece of white card, using an embossing pad, and also did the same with one of the stamps out of the Organics set, so the two stamped images connected on the card, using Back powder, I heat embossed it, then fussy cut it. I did the same with the Love word. I coloured the flower using Distress Inks.


 
 
 
The bottom part of the plaque is MDF, I used an embossing pad all around the edges, then used an ultra thick embossing powder, in Black and Gold, and heat set it with my heat tool, I glued the top to the bottom, using 3D glue gel, and then using the same glue, I added the baby and the Love.
 


Thanks for your visit.
Hugs Pauline xxxx
