Scribbled Circle stamps @ Visible Image

Hi there! Thanks for coming to visit the Visible Image stamps blog today. We have double the inspiration for you today, as always on a Wednesday… In fact we have FOUR amazing cards to share with you! Yes FOUR 🙂

Lisa has been creating some truly stunning backgrounds, so make sure you pop back later on to see what she’s been making!

Here with today’s first post it’s the lovely Kim Robertson…

Hi folks.. Happy Wednesday!

I hope you all had some of the nice sunshine we had yesterday, it was good to leave work A. in the daylight and B. in the sunshine and no rain wow… could it be that Spring is starting to wake up.. Oh I hope so.

Anyway I hope you are all doing well and I have a really different card for you today using a background stamp called Orbital from the new launch which really could be turned into anything, or used for anything. It could be used for mixed media and journalling also and would look great in white on black or in bright neons as a colour flash too. I used it in conjunction with one of the more recent word stamps with a different edge.

I did lots of layering as usual to enhance the backing to keep it neat and added a couple of little wooden dragonflies colouring with inks to match and some sparkle to catch the light in a couple of the corners and on the body of the dragonflies too.


I love the colour combination of teal and duckegg blue with latte and browns.

I also blended some Vintage photo distress ink over the edges to make it pop from the white and black of the background too.



Heres is the background alone so you can see the mix of colours on the backing with the layers etc before I go in with the sentiment raised up on foam for dimension.



I stamped out my sentiment  from the Express yourself range of sentiment stamps from the Be Happy set and cut it out with a small tonic circle die and inked through the die like a stencil to give it a faint blue tone and cut a mat a little larger in black for it to sit on.




This is a close up of the little sparkle on the dragonfly and how the sentiment is slightly raised from the card. This is slightly flatter without all the frills on this one so it could easily be posted in an average envelope as opposed to my usual embelished style.

Another look at the finished results, I know this saying is sometimes used if someone is upset with another and people say this as a just deserts, and they will get theirs type thing, but this was never originally meant this way. It was a much more philosophical saying more for a good deed and how folks would be rewarded in richness of life and after life for kindness in this life, so then you see it with new eyes don’t you.

But mostly I just like how the little card flows for such a simple stamp an the possibilities are endless.


    

Orbital Background.                                     Be Happy stamp set.

These are the stamp sets I used and you can see how they all have sooo many uses , the possibillities are so endless here I sometimes look at lots of stamps and get a little lost as there are so many beautiful stamps to choose but if I limit myself to choosing just two or three and working with that I have so many more ideas so sometimes it is worth keeping it really simple.


Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Lots of love to all you wonderful ladies (and maybe couple of gents haha)

Amazing background, simple yet so effective layering up the scribbled circles in different colours! Orbital reminds us of when were were kids using a spirograph! Love Kim’s colour combo too. You’ll find more of Kim’s fabulous work over on her blog

Karma – Visible Image stamps

Good Morning! Today we are back with more NEW stamps inspiration.

Over to Teresa…

It’s time for another look at some of the fantastic newly released stamps from Visible Image. This week I have used one of the new backgrounds – Plasma set, and teamed it with a sentiment from the Express Yourself range.

I used Versamark ink and a selection of pastel embossing powders to layer up the background onto black card. I love this squiggly design, it looks so crisp and funky on the black background.

I stamped the sentiment onto a circle of black card and embossed with white, then stamped the other design from the Plasma set around it and embossed in pink. I layered the black circle onto a white circle and attached with 3d foam.

I hope that I have inspired you to put away those patterned papers for a while and try to create your own fantastic backgrounds.
