Mixed Media Postcard – Visible Image stamps

Hello 🙂 We are back with more awesome inspiration for you this evening.

Kim J has been getting inky and the results are fantastic…


Today is my day to share some Visible Image fun 🙂

I have a mixed media postcard today. I am having so much fun with mail art! Hope you like it!

This is  the front side of the card. I started with some plain white mixed media paper. I cut a bunch of pieces to 4 inches by 6 inches.

Then I made puddles of Americana Multi Surface Satin paints on my craft mat, spritzed with water and smooshed the paper into the paints. Lots of painty play. The nicest thing, once the paint is dry, it is very easy to stamp onto the background.

The front side uses the awesome Vision INKognito and sentiment Love Yourself from the No Regrets set. Both are heat embossed with Distress Ink and Ranger Superfine powder.

I dry embossed the chicken wire pattern on the side of the front of the card. Then layered some clear embossing powder and Jet Black Archival ink. This makes is so wonderful to feel and added some POP and shine 🙂

This is the backside of the postcard. For the text and address divider I used the stem from Flower INKognito.  The amazing splats are found in the Ink Splats set. All are stamped with Distress Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Super fine, black powder.

I added some fine paintbrush spatters with Black DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic paint. More spatters the better in my mind anyways!

I glued the front and back together with Americana Decou-page Paper collage medium. It dries quickly and non-tacky.

Once done I inked all the edges and my fingers with Jet Black Archival ink.

So are you ready to play and get inky??
