Colourful World

Hello! We are here to share more gorgeous inspiration with you here on the blog.

Elina Strömberg has two stunning tags to share with you today…


Hi and happy Thursday!

Even if spring has not really started in Finland yet, my mind is already shifted from dull grey winter to the colourful, blooming season ahead of us. Inspired by the increasing amount of colour in the scenery I made two tags with Visible Image stamps and Distress Oxide colours in the background:



One of the coolest things about new Distress Oxide inks is that you can easily layer the colours and create vibrant colour combinations.


Just dry each colour layer with your heat gun before applying the next layer; new layers will not react with the ones underneath.



For both of these tags I used three different Distress colours. For highlighting the colours even more
it’s always a good thing to use a bit of black or white for contrast; those will make the colours pop!

I added a hint of black with a Visible Image script background stamp. I did not use a mounting block
but held the stamp it in my hand, bending it when stamping the texture on the tag.



I added some texture on the tag by gluing down pieces of a honeycomb chipboard sheet.

Then I stamped the lovely flowers in three sizes on white paper, coloured them with Promarkers and cut out.
Before gluing them on the tags I bent the flower petals gently for creating a dimensional look.

I decorated the flowers with small seed beads.


 


As much I love the quote text on the ‘Black & White World’ stamp I had to cut it to smaller pieces in order to fit the texts on the tags. In addition I did not want to cover the colourful background complete with the word strips, so leaving out parts of the quote was the way to go this time.

Reassembling the quote on both of the tags was actually a fun thing to do; versatile stamps can be used in so many ways!

Wishing you a beautiful week filled with colour!

Trying To Find Some Colour

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog!

Veerle Moreels is here sharing her latest Design Team project today…






I love the project I’m showing today …if I may say so.  And that has all to do with this word stamp from Visible Image of course.

How true can this one be…tell me… how black and white can this world sometimes be. How often do you find yourself standing opposite of something or someone, wishing you could just knock it right down on the floor?

But you should never forget there is always that tiny bit of color, even if it’s not visible at that same difficult moment…it really is there <3





Stamps Used:


Black and White World


Scripted Streets
