Get Up and Dress Up!

Hello and thank you so much for coming to visit our blog today!

Nicky Gilburt is here with 3 gorgeous cards using 1 fabulous sentiment stamp…

It’s all about the words this weekend – and how to frame them.

Another inspiring and fun quote from Visible Image, it pretty much speaks for itself!

But here are three different ways I’ve set them out.

 

1. Distress inks and stencils
 

 


I have mixed purples and blues in different ways, smooshed them around with water,left them to dry and then added stencils to create a bit of interest, Once completely dry ( use a heat gun to be sure!) I rubbed an anti-static bag over the area then stamped with Versamark, and applied white embossing powder and melted it with a heat gun. The stars come from the very popular Born to Perform set.

 

2. Distress crayons

 


I slightly dampened my base card before applying distress crayon and rubbing with my finger. A bit of text, heat embossed with black powder, and a few flowers from the Create It!set, not forgetting a couple of sequins to finish!

 

3. Aqua Flow markers

 


I totally love these pens. They are the Tonic Studios Nuvo brand, and here I have laid down thick swathes of colour, allowed to dry and stamped the text over it. Again, heat embossing in white makes the words really stand out!


A simple border round the edge with a fine-liner pen makes for a funky finish

There are so many inspirational, motivational and comforting quotes to play at Visible Image!



 

 

Happy Crafting
