Daisy Stencil | Butterfly Stamps

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Sorry our blog has been a little neglected for a few days, it’s been such a busy week! We have also been doing live demos over on our Facebook PAGE most evenings so check them out if you haven’t already! Our wonderful Design Team have been really enjoying creating lots of projects with our NEW stencils, and Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog today with a gorgeous summer canvas featuring our ‘Daisy Daisy’ stencil with our new ‘Summer Wings’ stamps, a perfect combination…



Sharing the same name as my Granddaughter Daisy, I just had to use this stencil for my first make with the new release.

How gorgeous is that!



I wanted to create something very light and summery so I got out my distress sprays and had a play on watercolour card.


I love that you can use the spray ink left behind to print with too (these are the images on the white
card)




I decided to use stamps from the Summer Wings set to make a very summery canvas.

I stamped lots on inky mop up card and then added some more inks as needed.



I also stamped and cut the words into “banners”



I used this stenciled image.


I stamped my butterflies in place



and then decoupaged the wings adding glossy accents to their centres, and to the the centre of the daisy stencil.



Here is the finished canvas..

and one last shot..



This is such a pretty stencil and would work in so many different colourways and with so many different stamps. A real “must have” for any crafter.


The new stencil release is available to pre-order now! There are 8 more stencils in the release, do check out social media and the Facebook page where there are lots of samples being shared.


Thanks so much for stopping by.

Bye for now,

Mixed Media Wall Art | Butterfly Stamps

Hi there, we are sneaking in with an extra post today! We just had to share this stunning art work by Lynda Hall featuring our fabulous new butterfly stamps and sentiments on an incredible textured background…


For my latest Visible Image inspiration I am sharing a piece of wall art that I have created, featuring the new release Summer Wings stamp set. I love the clean lines of the butterflies, they offer endless opportunities for creativity.




I started this piece with a piece of watercolour card, that I sprayed with water before applying watercolour paint. I wanted lots of lovely texture on this, so I used the salt technique.



This is a simple process where you sprinkle rock salt over the painted card when still wet, and allow it to dry naturally. It absorbs the moisture and leaves the most interesting patterns and texture.



When fully dry, I brushed off the salt and sealed with a layer of matt medium.



Then for more texture! I coloured crackle paste with acrylic paint and applied it liberally with a pallet knife.



While that was drying and doing its magical crackly thing, I finished off my butterflies. The day before I had stamped and gone over the outline with Pebeo Cerne Relief. This enabled me to fill the gaps with Pebeo Prisme paint, which once dry contains beautiful patterns. This does take a while to dry fully. I left mine overnight before fussy cutting out.



With the crackle paste dry, I then really went to town on adding more texture. I added Izink Ice, acrylic ink, embossing powder, texture sand and beads. I also added some stamping detail using stamps from the Shape It Up set (this is SUCH a useful set to have in the stash for backgrounds!)





To finish I mounted on black, and added the sentiment stamps and adhered the butterflies.

When framed it makes a beautiful unique piece of art work.

If I Could Turn Back Time..

Hello!

Veerle Moreels is here with a gorgeous tag and video tutorial for you today…




If you could turn back time… how would today look like? Would it be the same, or would you change things in the past that makes today could look completely different. But be careful… it’s not only the bad things that change… your changes might just have its influence on the good things you have today too.


I had the camera running while creating this tag…

 

 

This beautiful butterfly and those thoughtful words are Visible Image stamps. And the coloring is a combination of Derwent Inktense and my beloved watercolors.

 

Stamps Used:


Own Kind of Beautiful




Love You Longer

We will be back tomorrow with a brand new project from Jane Tyrrell!

Thanks for visiting our blog today!

Fluttering Butterflies

Hi there! Thanks for coming to check out today’s inspiration here on the blog. Jane Tyrrell is here with her latest project…


Good Evening all,


I hope you had a lovely weekend? We enjoyed a family BBQ at my daughter’s, it was so good to all get together with both sides of the family. It was the 10th year they have hosted it..how the years fly by.

I am here with my weekly post for Visible Image, and some new inspiration.
The bees have been humming around and I have seen lots of butterflies but they seem to vanish whenever I try to grab my camera!


However one found it’s way into my kitchen…or perhaps this might be a pretty moth?




My card today was inspired by these amazing insects and the sunny colours in my garden, and uses (in my opinion) the best butterfly stamps on the market.  Visible Image have sold these gorgeous butterflies for some years.


I also used the brilliant time swirl as I had the idea to have the tiny butterflies emerging from the end of it.



These were the stamp sets I worked with:










I created a distress oxide background



 ..I love the effects you can get with the Oxides…a real splash of colour here



I stamped the time swirl. I also stamped and embossed some butterflies on some inky mop up card and fussy cut them out.


I added the butterfly shadow and stamped the small butterfly silhouettes emerging from the time swirl. The sentiment is from the Unicorn set. I stuck the fussy cut butterflies over the shadows which gives such a cool 3D effect.









We hope to see lots of you joining in with this month’s “a splash of colour” challenge over in the Visible Image Facebook group. You could be the random winner of a £40 coupon to spend in the shop!


Thanks so much for stopping by today and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me. Keep cool and carry on crafting.


Back soon!
Bye for now,
Jane x
