Stay Strong

Hi there! As promised we are back with more stunning inspiration this evening.

Over to Teresa Morgan…

This week I’m sharing another card that focusses on one of Visible Image’s sentiment stamps. I love this stamp, perfect for so many situations.





My background was created using Distress Oxide inks (everybody’s new favourite toy). I then stamped the script stamp randomly all over.





I die cut a circle from another piece of cardstock and coloured with Distress Oxides to match. I then stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with Eggplant WOW Powder.





This month sees the start of our new monthly themed challenges in the Facebook group (link below).

Our theme for May is Express Yourself – Use Words as the Focus of your Project.

Hello! We have an absolute stunner to share with you next.
Over to Dot Leathbridge…


We all go through those times when we need a little reminding that we can do it,
or know someone who needs extra strength for whatever challenges they face.


That is where this card comes from… those times when a tear is near.

Find Courage – Stay Strong – Visible Image Stamps

Good Evening to you! Thank you for visiting our blog today.

Today’s inspiration from Kim Robertson is one of the stunning cards she demo’d at Ally Pally…



This card uses the same techniques as the tags we made at Ally Pally (my tags tutorial can be found HERE)



Visible Image stamps - Stay Strong - Kim Robertson

This photo was taken before I added lots more glass glitter in the waves, and the black little flat back sparkles in the corners to finish off.

 

So to start….

 


Stamp the script from the Revolution Set randomly how you would like it on the background, I had mine in the two opposite corners as shown here.




Next I inked the background with the colours of my choice , opposite on the colour wheel and infinitely blendable too, I added two layers as always, go back to the post on the tags for more step by steps on how to blend inks and why two layers etc.


I then added tone on tone inking and some flicked water as before and blotting the ink away to leave rings and shapes to fit in with splashing water.




Here is the small piece of UTEE with the small Fleur de Lys pressed into it when molten, to leave this wonderful indentation to which I added some black archival ink to the centre and rubbed over with some Treasure Gold wax to pick up the high points.



I stamped my sentiment onto card and inked the edges, and mounted it onto black card. I also added grey and blue around the lettering to make the writing really stand away from the card, like a shadow.


I added each item to the card with foam to make the card a little more dimensional.



Lastly I went back in with my trick with the glitters in the wavy corners to really make some wet looking sparkles appear out of the waves with the white horses of the sea.


Here are the stamps sets used…


Ok lovelies, see you soon

Stay Strong – You Are Loved – Visible Image Stamps

Hello 🙂 Thank you for coming to check out today’s inspiration.

First up today is Lisa Nygards with some gorgeous cards created with some of our NEW ‘Express Yourself’ sentiment stamps


Good Evening!

Today I have two lovey CAS-cards for Visible Image. First one is made with ink from ink pad stippled through a stencil, and then I’ve stamped the beautiful sentense Stay Strong in black on top.

The second card is made by brushing water on a water color paper and then add some color from spray mists by dripping and brushing it on. Let it dry complete and then stamp the words on top with black. I’ve used the new You are Loved, and I really love the bold fond on this one.
