For my first project, I used a background I had created with a gel plate. I had been playing with the MINC Toner Ink and the scribble image from the Don’t Judge stamp set. I then used the butterfly from the Summer Wings set and colored it up with some Nuvo Drops.

I also added the sentiments from sentiments from the same set and white heat embossed it.

For my second card I used the Flower Art set. I love these fun flowers and the unique design.

I made a quick background with the Chartreuse Color Burst. While it was drying, I used Nuvo Drops and colored up the flower for a fun look.

For my last card, I used the Happy Day set. This is such a fun set and there are so many ways to use it.

I had this fun patterned paper that I thought would be the perfect background for my card. I stamped the image in Versfine ink and added the fun eyelashes.

I added white gel pen to the eyes and the fun Be Kind sentiment.

Look Forward With Hope

Hello and Happy Monday to you! We hope you had a lovely weekend   Judy Rozema is kicking off this week’s inspiration here on the blog with a stunning card featuring our ‘Beautiful Soul’ face stamp and an inspiring quote…


Today I am sharing some watercolor painting and a card made with three different stamp sets from Visible Image.

face stamp | hair | woman



I started out by mixing oranges, yellows, and reds from my Kuretake paints. I didn’t have an image, or idea in mind for what I would make; I was just mixing colors. When it was dry, it reminded me of the gorgeous image from Beautiful Soul.


I used my MISTI to line up where the image might look best, and stamped it with VersaFine Clair Nocturne. I added the sun from Look Forward With Hope in the upper right corner, and the net from Mesh-ellaneous along the bottom and upper left corner in yellow and orange inks.





I stamped the sentiment sentiment in Nocturne ink. I think it’s the perfect sentiment for all that is happening in our world right now. For added sparkle, I used Orange Peel Stickles in three waves of her hair. I love how it turned out!



Stamps Used:


face stamp | woman | hair | positive | sentiment stamps



Hope | It's OK to not be OK | brave | storm | sentiment | stamps



mesh | ripped fishnet | background stamp



handmade card | hope | face stamp | woman



Thank you for stopping by today!



This card is so striking Judy! Your background is fabulous, we love the texture and interest you added with the fishnet background stamp. Thank you
