Don’t Let Your Past Steal Your Future – Visible Image stamps

Good Morning! Hope you are enjoying this week’s inspiration from our awesome Design Team!

It’s Thursday which means it’s Teresa Morgan’s turn to share her latest project with you…

Here we are again for another dose of Thrilling Thursday inspiration – hope you have been enjoying the mini heatwave here in the UK….it’s far too hot for me at the moment but I do like to see a bit of sunshine as it lifts the spirit!!

This week I have decorated a pair of mini framed canvasses using some of the brilliant new word stamps from Visible image.

I started by using some modelling paste through a circle mask in the corners to add some texture, then dripped washes of paint down the canvas once the paste was dry. I used some black paint through a chicken wire mask for a bit more detail, then got out my stamps.

I used black embossing powder on the words and circles (from the Universal set), and gold embossing powder on the Woman Inkognito. A bit of gilding wax on the stencilled circles added more shine! The frames are painted to create an antique brass efect which tied in with the ‘distressed industrial’ feel of this piece.

I love how this turned out and the words are perfect for anybody contemplating a new start in life….
