Daffodil Stamp | Canvas

Hi there, we are really excited for today’s inspiration! Jane Tyrrell has got her hands on our new stamps and has a rather special project to share with you here on the blog today…

Hi friends, have you seen there is a brand new Visible Image stamp release? It is available for pre-order now and is being released on June 26th. I got my hands on the stamps on Friday to make some samples and I have been blown away by how gorgeous they are. There are 6 new A6 sets and every one is fab. I am popping in today as I just had to share my first sample as it features my favourite flower, the daffodil.


It is one of 3 lovely flowers in the new Flower Art set


Flower stamps | daffodil | tulip | rose

I used it with a fab existing background stamps called Fibonacci

I decided to make myself a canvas to hang in my studio and wanted a very organic/vintage feel.


This is what I got up to:


I took some corrugated card and ripped it back and also found an old Dusty Attic chipboard frame in my stash which I won many moons ago.



I used distress paints on the chipboard
and finished off with gold Stickles which you will see at the end.



I also die cut some hessian to add a focal frame underneath


I coloured the cardboard with distress paints and added highlights with Tarnished Brass distress paint.




Out came my trusty  “A tale of two cities” book for some book page flowers and I used an inky off cut for the leaves and the centres of the daffodils.



I also added Glossy Accents to the trumpet of the flower head.



Here is my finished canvas, the words which come in this set work so well with the images too.  Daffodils are indeed such beautiful yet delicate flowers.

I have LOTS more samples to share over the coming weeks, and do keep an eye out on social media where mine and my teamies samples are being shared.


Thanks so much for stopping by.


Bye for now,

This is really gorgeous Jane, the daffodils look fabulous stamped on the book pages and the glossy accents really adds to them. Love the texture of the distressed cardboard and the gold stickles too… thank you  ♡

Colourful World

Hello! We are here to share more gorgeous inspiration with you here on the blog.

Elina Strömberg has two stunning tags to share with you today…


Hi and happy Thursday!

Even if spring has not really started in Finland yet, my mind is already shifted from dull grey winter to the colourful, blooming season ahead of us. Inspired by the increasing amount of colour in the scenery I made two tags with Visible Image stamps and Distress Oxide colours in the background:



One of the coolest things about new Distress Oxide inks is that you can easily layer the colours and create vibrant colour combinations.


Just dry each colour layer with your heat gun before applying the next layer; new layers will not react with the ones underneath.



For both of these tags I used three different Distress colours. For highlighting the colours even more
it’s always a good thing to use a bit of black or white for contrast; those will make the colours pop!

I added a hint of black with a Visible Image script background stamp. I did not use a mounting block
but held the stamp it in my hand, bending it when stamping the texture on the tag.



I added some texture on the tag by gluing down pieces of a honeycomb chipboard sheet.

Then I stamped the lovely flowers in three sizes on white paper, coloured them with Promarkers and cut out.
Before gluing them on the tags I bent the flower petals gently for creating a dimensional look.

I decorated the flowers with small seed beads.


 


As much I love the quote text on the ‘Black & White World’ stamp I had to cut it to smaller pieces in order to fit the texts on the tags. In addition I did not want to cover the colourful background complete with the word strips, so leaving out parts of the quote was the way to go this time.

Reassembling the quote on both of the tags was actually a fun thing to do; versatile stamps can be used in so many ways!

Wishing you a beautiful week filled with colour!

Face it… she’s fabulous!

Hi! Thanks for coming to visit our blog. We are having a massive catch up of all the latest Design Team projects,
after neglecting our blog for a few weeks!

There have been so many amazing cards and projects created with our NEW Face it collection,
and Nicky Gilburt is here with a very special canvas she has created with these gorgeous stamps…


Hello and today I am sharing with you my very first ever canvas, created with the Face it and Create It Stamps by Visible Image.


 


It measures 20 x 20cms and was created in an evening with plenty of stamping, colouring and cutting, and lots of fun!


I simply stamped the features onto the canvas, using a large stamping block behind it, to get a good pressure with my stamp, and coloured from the edge with shades of green distress ink and a blending tool and paintbrush to keep the edges soft.

I added crackles from the fabulous ‘create it’ set, and if you look closely, you’ll see I coloured the eyes in purple,
just to reflect the other-worldliness of the girl. (I also did this on very thin card which I then stuck to the canvas,
so that I could capture the accurate detail of the iris and pupils).
 


 


The flowers were simply stamped in Distress ink onto thin card, and then coloured with a waterbrush. I used all three sizes of flower from the Create It set, on some of them, to build up depth a bit more, then finished off the centres with Liquid Pearls.

For the leaves… I simply stamped the flowers in green, and from each flower I snipped out two pairs of leaves and one single, which, by the time they were strategically positioned behind the petals, were unrecognisable as the same thing!
The finishing touch was the butterfly, Visible Image of course, from the ‘Own Kind of Beautiful‘ set from last year.
 




I am so excited about this project, and even more so that it was featured in the Visible Image Create and Craft TV show
a few weeks ago. I have never seen stamps like this, with which you can construct both human and feline features
(and look out for a mixture of both from my fellow Visible Image design team…!)



Stamps used:


Face it


Create it


Own Kind of Beautiful



Feedback from the release of these sets has been phenomenal, particularly because the crafter can choose the level
of difficulty – she looks as beautiful just stamped onto plain white, or softly coloured paper, as she does all adorned with flowers! So I can’t wait to see lots of interpretations shared in the Visible Image Facebook group.


Happy crafting!
Nicky


Thank you Nicky for this gorgeous project, she looks fabulous surrounded by all those flowers and the pretty butterfly ♡
