Goodbye Autumn Colours – Visible Image Stamps

Hello again! Thanks for joining us here on the blog today ūüôā

Lisa Nygards is here with her latest inspiration…


I think this will be the last card with autumn theme for this season. The bright beautiful colors are gone and leaves are on the ground and most of the nature are turning brown-ish. Sad thing. Now it will be dark and boring until we get some snow that lighten things up.

I’ve used the Colours of the Wind set on my card. I colored the leaf up with rainbow inkpads and misted with some water before I stamped it on a watercolor paper. Then I inked up part by part of the word stamp and stamped on the side. Decorated with some bling and sequins and splattered some black dots all over for dimension.

Today here is my Vision of pink sparkliness …

2015-10-14 Visible Image stamps - Smile Sparkle Shine - Kim Robertson

You know how much I love the Colours of the Wind set, and that beautiful big leaf, so I decided to use a couple of different distress inks in of course ‘pink’ tones, and do a background covered in sparkle with¬†the Smile Sparkle Shine sentiment stamped onto the glitter, and brushed out using a damp paint brush.

Here are some photos from along the way creating this one.


I didn’t do a step by step for this stage as I have done something similar very recently with this stamp set, and how I ink and stamp tone on tone. ¬†I have also stamped out the little leaves in Versamark and embossed them in clear to start, so they work as a resist in the usual way. The larger leaf was of course stamped off the page and I used Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar distress inks along with a tiny amount of Vintage Photo. I have also used some Raisin Adirondack ink too to add depth in the leaf detailing¬†and, as I knew I wanted to cover this in glitter, some of the leaves would need to be quite dark to show through.


I covered the pink in a sticky sheet and made sure it was very smooth before tipping on some very sparkly clear glitter, I added a few mat and layers in white and plum card, I then went back in with the white glue and added another layer on certain parts of the leaves, so I could added some glass glitter for texture on the card too.

In this photo the white glue is still drying and eventually the whole thing turned clear with incredible sparkle, but of course it never shows on camera. Those of you who met me this year at Ally Pally and did the Make and Take, or have seen my items on the amazing Visible Image stand at the shows, will know just how sparkly they are in person.

Here is a close up of the glue drying with the second layer of glitter, you can just keep building the layers if you want a really rustic texture.

So next I inked up my Smile Sparkle Shine stamp with the same Raisin Adirondack which is still a water based ink, so I knew if it skipped in places I could water brush it out.

Luckily the image came out, even though on glitter, perfectly with these amazing quality stamps although of course the higher parts on the glitter looked like it had little dots, so I used my water brush and just smoothed out the colour then left it to dry.

Once it was dry I took a Red Promarker in a nice rich deep tone and added just a few shadows to some of the letters, to make them look bright and vivid in colour, and the alcohol covers the glitter but allows it to sparkle too which looks so pretty.


Here is what it looks like after that last stage.


On the bottom right corner I decided to add the little breast cancer symbol in ribbon, and on top I added a little pink leaf and a sparkly pink gem. I also added those gems to the corners of the card too.
