Inject Some Colour


It’s July 1st so that means a brand new challenge has started over in our Facebook group!

The theme for July is ‘a splash of colour’…. so much fun to play along with!

It’s Helen here today with a project I made for the 3D challenge in Craft Stamper magazine’s June issue, which just so happens to be great inspiration for this month’s challenge theme…

I chose one of my favourite quotes from our Express Yourself range as inspiration for my project…
I stamped out the words then cut them up so that I could place them randomly

The 3D item we all used for this feature is our brilliant MDF Monoliths…

our first and only MDF product which was designed by Mark back in 2015, and made for us by the awesome Candy Box Crafts... you really must check out their website if you aren’t familiar with them! They have so many brilliant items and kits.

Ok… so firstly I cut a piece of card 17cm x 10cm to fit my Monolith and coloured it using black soot distress ink

Next I splashed it with water to create a rainy look

While it was drying I stamped and embossed flowers from our Create it set and cut them out


I used a neon pink ink pad to colour one of the flowers

I wiped away the pink ink so the black embossing was still nice and sharp.

Next I took the awesome rain stamp from our Sparkle in the Rain set and stamped it all over my card in black versafine ink


Then I covered my stamp in white acrylic paint and randomly stamped it over my background

I placed my words and flowers on the card and added a touch of pink to the middle flower as if the ink was blowing onto it


Next I stamped the stems from our Imperfection is Beauty set in black paint

I stuck my card to my Monolith, then it was time for some colour…
I used diluted pink acrylic paint and just kept adding more water and more colour with my paint brush until it started to run


I glued everything in place and then added more painty drips, and created a pool on the base of my Monolith too

I flicked some paint about too, to give the effect of it blowing off the flower

Once dry, I stuck my Monolith to the base and my project was complete…

I hope you like what I created! What will you make for our ‘splash of colour’ challenge?

Colourful World

Hello! We are here to share more gorgeous inspiration with you here on the blog.

Elina Strömberg has two stunning tags to share with you today…

Hi and happy Thursday!

Even if spring has not really started in Finland yet, my mind is already shifted from dull grey winter to the colourful, blooming season ahead of us. Inspired by the increasing amount of colour in the scenery I made two tags with Visible Image stamps and Distress Oxide colours in the background:

One of the coolest things about new Distress Oxide inks is that you can easily layer the colours and create vibrant colour combinations.

Just dry each colour layer with your heat gun before applying the next layer; new layers will not react with the ones underneath.

For both of these tags I used three different Distress colours. For highlighting the colours even more
it’s always a good thing to use a bit of black or white for contrast; those will make the colours pop!

I added a hint of black with a Visible Image script background stamp. I did not use a mounting block
but held the stamp it in my hand, bending it when stamping the texture on the tag.

I added some texture on the tag by gluing down pieces of a honeycomb chipboard sheet.

Then I stamped the lovely flowers in three sizes on white paper, coloured them with Promarkers and cut out.
Before gluing them on the tags I bent the flower petals gently for creating a dimensional look.

I decorated the flowers with small seed beads.


As much I love the quote text on the ‘Black & White World’ stamp I had to cut it to smaller pieces in order to fit the texts on the tags. In addition I did not want to cover the colourful background complete with the word strips, so leaving out parts of the quote was the way to go this time.

Reassembling the quote on both of the tags was actually a fun thing to do; versatile stamps can be used in so many ways!

Wishing you a beautiful week filled with colour!

Trying To Find Some Colour

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog!

Veerle Moreels is here sharing her latest Design Team project today…

I love the project I’m showing today …if I may say so.  And that has all to do with this word stamp from Visible Image of course.

How true can this one be…tell me… how black and white can this world sometimes be. How often do you find yourself standing opposite of something or someone, wishing you could just knock it right down on the floor?

But you should never forget there is always that tiny bit of color, even if it’s not visible at that same difficult moment…it really is there <3

Stamps Used:

Black and White World

Scripted Streets

Wow! Stunning tag! Love your interpretation of this quote Veerle, thank you ♡
