Bold and Beautiful ATCs

Hi there! Josefine is here on the blog today with some gorgeous inspiration…


Hello and welcome to a new post for Visible Image. I was in the mood for something bright, something very bright ūüėČ





Because I haven’t used my Distress Oxide in a while, I decided to create a few bright ATCs using them.

I started with a 3 1/2 x 9 inch piece of water color paper and smeared the Oxides directly onto the paper. Then I spritzed water on top, let the inks move and mix and heat set it. Next up, I used the smooshing technique where I put the ink directly onto my craft mat, spritzed some water on top of that and then dragged the paper through the wet ink.



Now I cut up the ATCs to the size 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch and started decorating them. The first one with Golden mica flakes through the Stars & Stripes stencil. This had to dry the longest, so I set it aside and continued with the other ATCs.



The second ATC also needed some stencilded background. For this one, I used Cosmic Skies with White Linen Dylusions spray.



I wanted to do something slightly different for the third ATC, so I stamped a few patterns with the Mesh-ellaneous stamp set.



For the focal points I stamped two of the flowers from the Imperfection is Beauty set and my favorite paper boat from Destination Unknown. I just fuzzy cut them and let them white. I thought that this makes it pop even more, rather than any color I could have colored it in. The only ‚Äúcoloring‚ÄĚ I did was sprinkling some London Blue and Bubblegum Pink onto one of the flowers and the coordinating ATC.



At the end I adhered everything together and finished it off with a little blending around the borders. Now these are some bright ATCs ūüôā

Have you ever created or exchanged some? I like the small size, that you can still do so much with it, but don‚Äôt need to find some empty wall space to hang it up afterwards ūüėČ

Bold & Beautiful

Hello! We are back with more stunning inspiration for you this afternoon here on the blog!

Next up is Dot Leathbridge with a really beautiful card…


Bold and Beautiful¬† is one of the sayings from the¬†‘Own It’¬†set¬†which was released earlier this year.


For this card I’ve teamed it up with the¬†‘Create It’¬†set.

I love how the flowers look like they are facing the sky.




These stamp sets can be put together in so many creative ways.

Some doodling has been added to an inky background for a slightly different look and
the flowers have simply been cut out and added in.
