Create With Your Soul

Hello there! Thanks for coming to visit our blog today!

It’s Helen here today sharing a card I made as inspiration for this month’s challenge over in our Facebook group.


The theme this month is ‘Express Yourself’… creating a card, tag, mixed media project or journal page which has words as the focal point!

Here is my card..




I chose a favourite stamp, some zesty colours, and started to build my background…


I sprinkled some yellow and orange brushos then spritzed with water, adding more powder here and there for intensity




I randomly stamped the awesome inky script from our ‘Scripted Streets’ set using distress inks in the same colours




Next I stamped some of the brilliant circles from our ‘Universal’ set in lime green, then splattered some diluted white paint.

I embossed the quote using fluorescent orange, and highlighted the 3 main words with a black micron pen




I stamped and cut out some of the flowers from our ‘Create it’ set and coloured them with inks and paint splatters,
adhered them to my card with glue gel before adding a blob of paint to the centres!



It was a lovely sunny day so I sat my card on the patio outside our studio!



Stamps Used:

Create With Your Soul – Visible Image stamps

Good Evening! Hope you are well and Monday has eased you gently into the new week.

We had a fantastic fun filled weekend celebrating 3000 likes over on our Facebook Page… which resulted in lots of happy winners 🙂

Today Kim Bacon is here with some brand new inspiration for you…

Hello to you all,

What a fantastic week we have had here in Pembrokeshire weather wise. I have spent a lot of time in the garden weeding, planting and generally making things look nice. I have loved every minute! That is saying something coming from someone who used to enjoy being in a neat garden but hated working on it!


And what an exciting weekend for our Visible Image group! Competitions and flash prizes! Well done to the winners! If you would like to see what they created and their prizes then go to the link at the bottom of the blog and join the group!


Right so my make for today is a card I made using just a sentiment and the Harlequin stamp. A classic example of the stamps doing the work so there really is no need for embellishments!



 Visible Image stamps - Create With Your Soul - Kim Bacon


I started by washing a piece of watercolour card with warm tones of colour using Brusho paints. A pinch of the powder mixed with a drop of water goes a long way! The colours were blended while wet.


Left to dry for as long as possible, I usually do this the day before. Next I took the Harlequin stamp, sprayed it with water and then stamped it onto the painted card. Using a sheet of kitchen roll I then mopped up the moisture and repeated this over the whole sheet keeping the images in line with one another. I then splattered water over the piece of card and again mopped up the water with kitchen roll.


I used white embossing powder with the sentiment stamp and layered it on white card before mounting it on the card base.


3 faux gems add a little bit of sparkle at the corner.
