How apt that this is the set that I chose to play with, I had previously made a set of backgrounds with Distress inks, spritzers and paints, and this was one of my least favourites, as I felt it was less than perfect, the ink hadn’t spread evenly across the sheet, making a mottled effect botttom left. However….
when I stamped the two scripty flowers onto separate pieces of coloured card, and cut them out, it all seemed to work. And I thought that the effect actually seemed….right!
I used the bubble circle outlines and stamped and embossed with white, making it super easy to roughly fill them in with watercoloured distress ink. I used the same colour to stamp the other full circles, to tie them together, and stamped random patterns round the edge of my design to add interest and highlights.

This page was started with a piece of pattern paper by Prima Marketing from the Epiphany Collection called “Devine Exposure”. I stamped the three flowers on it with a very light pink ink. Next I used a brayer and brayered some turquoise blue acrylic paints on the edges. I used two or three shades. I also used a little pink to give it some more interest. You can still see some of the pattern paper through the paints. I then took my Polychromos coloured pencils by Faber Castell and coloured over the flowers. I used three shades of pink and some yellow and orange.
I then drew in the stems and coloured them with a black and a white gel pen.
Lastly I stamped the sentiment on a piece of the same paper, coloured the edges with a pink coloured pencil, cut it into strips and adhered it to the page.
That was it !

Wow what a stunning page! Loving the funky stems and your background is gorgeous… thanks Corrie! ♡
Kim Johnny is here with some more fantastic mail art created (of course) with some of our awesome stamps!
Today I want to share a postcard for my weekly Visible Image creative make.
The postcard is 4 inches by 6 inches and cut from Canson Mixed Media paper. I picked my go to soothing colors of Distress Ink, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon. I added the happy bubbles with an ARTplorations stencil and DecoArt modeling paste.
The word art sentiment Love Yourself is part of the No Regrets set. I heat embossed all the stamps in white EP, Ranger Superfine
I think Flower INKognito is my most favorite Visible Image stamp…it is so fun to use in so many ways. I hope someday there would be a smaller version and some cousins for this beauty 🙂
I adore the stem is a separate piece from the flower. The stem works great for any grungy touch needed 🙂 It is a fantastic set.
I hope you have a fantastic week and can steal some time for creative play!

I used the inky side of the flower stamp and distress inks to edge this card, and again heat embossed the main images.
The stamps used here were….. Flower INKognitoand an older Visible Image sentiment, that some of you might have.
And again I used a stamp from the set with Distress inks, to edge this card, and some frantage powder below the horse.
This is one of my favourite sets to use…… Revolution

Two weeks today we will be tying the knot ♥♥♥So if you want some gorgeousnew stampsto play with, you’ll need to get your order in… as we will be closing for a few weeks while we honeymoon on the Algarve 🙂
I created the background using shaving foam and Dylusion sprays, I heat embossed the Flower Inkognito using black powder, and then painted them with purple Stickles, I used the flower from the Happy Birthday set around the edges, and heat embossed the sentiment to match.
The background is Alcohol Inks on a Glossy Card, the feather was first stamped in Black Stazon ink, along with the sentiment. I then stamped the feather using Versamark onto some black card, and heat embossed in White powder. I fussy cut this out, shaped it and using Gel Glue, added it to the background but offset it a little to give the illusion of a shadow, I put some Stickkles on the top for sparkle.
