Brighten The World

Hi!!! We have Jane Tyrrell up on the blog next with a stunning canvas that will really make you smile…


Now that spring seems to have finally arrived I decided to make a sunny canvas for my weekly design team inspiration for Visible Image stamps.

I used 2 stamp sets that I have not inked up for some time. It was time to ink up the brilliant

dragonfly stamp from the Live in the Moment  stamp set:



and use it with the awesome Your Vivid Colours sentiment



I also stamped and fussy cut out some flowers from the Imperfection is Beauty set.



I made a distress ink background using spring coloured distress inks on watercolour paper



I masked the stamp into 2 halves so that I could put my dragonfly in between the words and made a stalk for my flowers using one of the stamps from the Organics stamp set





I stamped my dragonfly on a scrap of alcohol ink mop up card and fussy cut him out. I added Glossy Accents for some shine.



Here is my completed canvas…




and a couple of close ups..




Thanks so much for stopping by.

Enjoy the warming sunshine.


Back soon!


Bye for now,
Jane x

Sun Queen

Hello! We are back as promised with more fabulous inspiration this afternoon, here on the Visible Image blog!

If you love the sun, and burnt orange tones, then you are in for a real treat from Jane Tyrrell…


It’s my weekly dose of Visible Image stamps inspiration today. The new stencils are back in stock here on the website  and I have been having fun with them.


A few weeks ago I shared my Blue Snow Queen card.. if you missed her check out my post here.



I adore the Face it stamp set and, inspired by the glorious sun that peeped out during my autumnal walk, I made something with the eyes open stamps from the set.




I also decided to go from a cool to a warm colour palette and had the idea to create a Sun Queen as an art journal page.


I worked with 3 of the fab new stencils too:







and





I often use the mask from the Face shape stencil & mask set but this time I decided to draw round it and make a separate cut out face which I could decorate first and then stick to my card to complete. I used masking fluid on her eyes and lips to protect them from the inks.












I used some of my Italian cotton cold pressed artist card and made an inky background using some warm autumnal distress inks




Next I added some sun bursts using the strobes stencil, and then inked the inner parts with stamps from the
Rays of Light set



which work perfectly with this stencil



I then added texture paste through my time tunnel stencil using the first brown swirls as my guide.


Finally I stamped the perfect sentiment, one of the new quotes Your Vivid Colours




So here is my Sun Queen…




With some close ups








Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy the sunshine if you get some, smile at the”Sun Queen” ? if you see her, and delight in the gorgeous colours of autumn.


Back soon.


Bye for now,
Jane x

Your Vivid Colours

Hello! We have another dose of fabulous inspiration here on the blog this evening!

Teresa Morgan has a brilliant card to share…



Today’s post shows a different way of using the Stars and Stripes stencil





I chose to just use the stripes, and masked off sections so I could apply a rainbow of Distress Inks through the stencil. I chose the little horses from the Stay Wild set, making them look as if they were leaving trails of colour behind them.



The wonderful sentiment is stamped in black Archival ink as are the horses.



Stars and Stripes Stencil




Stay Wild




Your Vivid Colours




What a fabulous combination of stamps.. love the trails of colour behind the horses! Thank you Teresa ♡
