Dreamy Window – Visible Image stamps

Good Morning 🙂 It’s a dull wet day here in South Wales today… come on summer don’t be shy!

It’s far from dull here on the Visible Image blog though! We have double inspiration for you today from our awesome Design Team members Kim Robertson and Teresa Morgan. First up, with a brilliant tutorial as always, it’s Kim…

Hi Folks

How are you all ?

Today I have another card using the fab Visible Image stamps.

It is something quite different, I wanted to use the amazing Vision Inkognito stamp in this one and this is what popped into my head..


Visible Image stamps - Where Dreams Take You - Grungy Eye stamp - Kim Robertson


I started with the broken wall, I stamped the Brick wall background and cut out the left hand piece .



I used some prima inks in varying brick/ reddy and brown shades to create my wall. This fab little stamp repeats so you can create a wall any size.



Once it was done I went over the mortar with a Dusky rose Promarker  I then added some red ink splats with the ink splats set and some red ink later I also used some purple gelly pen to add some more of the splat shapes to the wall



Once dried I stamped in Perfect medium on the wall with the sentiment Where dreams take you in white embossing powder and heat set.



I cut out the wall at this point a note to remember when I was doing the mortar in this wall with my promarker I also decided the way the light would catch the wall and I also added the direction of the 3D aspect to the top and side of the wall.  I added two layers of foam to the back to raise it up away from the eye peeking out from behind it .



I then  stamped out the amazing  Vision INKognito eye and added some blues to the Iris and some feint brown to the white and some white in for the highlights and to catch the tiny lines in the iris also.  This is the colour of my daughters eyes actually almost to a tee.



I added a little more wall to the Right hand side and painted in a window frame to the centre behind the eye.




I used a grey and a pale blue to add into each window pane and just literally drew around the edge of each panel with it. I added my left hand piece of wall raised up on foam so the eye peeped from behind it. I also mounted the whole piece onto a black mat at this stage, I left a gap on the right by the window as I want to add some flowers climbing the wall.



I stamped out my second sentiment and inked the edges I also used some blue flexmarker to add under the words to pull then forward.



I added foam to the back of the sentiment and placed it above the window leaving room on the right for the leaves and flowers to grow up around the window.



I drew in some little wisteria type flowers hanging on the wall before I started adding the leaves and little wire stems twisted into little spring shapes I also added some little stamens which I used upside down to look like little hanging flowers.



I used some pink stickles on the hanging flowers and the inside of the little frosted flowers and on the card in varying places too.

So I took this angle shot so you can see which parts were raised and which were flat, lots of dimension, very different too.

Here is the complete picture again.

I used five really great stamps for this one so here they are…





These are the Moments

They truly are such gorgeous little pieces of art , each and every one of them.


I particularly enjoy this font as it really is right up my ally , from the swirls to the slight grunge in the broken swirls etc, very very cool.  Every single one is very versatile and I can really see them on mens cards too which is unusual for swirly writing as it usually is trly feminine but this seems to straddle the lines of masculine and feminine in a modern feel very very well. Good job guys…

So what are you all working on right now?

Have a great night and I will see you next week.

Hugs to all..

Love KIM

Awesome Background Stamps – Visible Image

Hello There! We hope you are having a good week so far 🙂

We had an amazing time at The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at Ally Pally at the weekend, we met lots of our fabulous customers and Facebook group members, and we met lots of new customers too! Some of them are already addicted after just a few days 😉 We had quite a few sell outs so we came home with a full order book! We did manage to grab a day off yesterday (did nothing much except sleep!) so today there’s a lot of catching up to do!!!

There’s loads of amazing NEW Design Team inspiration, so we shall start with Teresa’s post from Thursday last week. Over to Teresa…


Where does the week go, I can’t believe it is Thursday again already and my turn to share some more stamping inspiration for the Visible Image team!

This week I have two cards to show you using some of the fantastic background stamps that are available in the shop.

First up is is a cool ‘graffiti’ style card:

I stamped the Brick Wall stamp twice with black Versafine ink then added the Ink Splats and drips (from the Drag and Drip set) using Versamark ink and WOW fluorescent embossing powders.

I stamped and embossed one of the Ink Splats onto another piece of card then stamped and embossed the sentiment in black over it.


Stamps Used:

Brick Wall

Ink Splats

Drag and Drip

Imperfection Is Beauty

 


My second card…



Visible Image Stamps


I love the new squiggly doodly background stamps in the shop!

I stamped one of the stamps in the Plasma set randomly with Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks. Once dry I stamped and embossed(in black) one of the stamps from the Orbital set to frame each circle.

The sentiment is stamped and embossed in black, then matted onto yellow and black card.


Stamps Used:

Plasma

Orbital
