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!

Exciting Adventures

Hi there, we are back with more awesome inspiration for you this evening. Over to a very excited Jane Tyrrell…



Hello everyone, it is time for some more inspiration from me for Visible Image.


Did you see the show on Create and Craft TV on Saturday? It was awesome and again most of the sets sold out! It was such fun seeing my cards there amongst our talented team’s work. If you missed the show it is available on the website for 7 days via this link


It really was the most marvellous weekend and I can finally share some even more exciting news with you…


Can you guess…. I have been busy knitting for the past few months…

Yes our darling Grand baby arrived on Friday…!



Meet Jack William



The sweetest darling baby brother for Daisy Jane. How blessed we are. He was a couple of weeks early and is tiny… just 5lb 13oz but just perfect and we all adore him!


What a weekend of excitement!



My card today is one that was made as a sample for Saturday’s Show and I waved to it on TV.

I used 2 sets; the Scripted Streets set


I love this set… the script stamp makes is an amazing background script, you can use it for everything.
The map is also such fun.



I also used some words and the awesome paper planes from the Destination Unknown set



This is what I got up to…


I repeat stamped the map onto thin card.


I used some Decoart media paints on another sheet of card to give a medieval feel to the background and repeat stamped the script.


I then die cut the background using a mixed media die to make a leaded glass effect.


I tore up some of maps and scrunched them up to make creases. I



I then opened them up again, added some inks to age them,  and stuck 3 maps to some black card.


When we were on holiday in Italy last summer I bought this sealing wax set in an art shop in Sienna and I knew now was the perfect time to use it .



 

I also stamped and embossed some words and paper planes from the Destination Unknown set, put on my creative hat and came up with my card.

You can see that I used my black card as a base for my “window”and stuck the maps on top. I then added my trellis mixed media window sheet so that the maps are sandwiched between the layers.



Here are some side close ups to try to show the 3D effect.




I love my wax seal… it even has my initial on it and I will certainly be using it again very soon.




and one final shot



Thanks so much for stopping by.


Back soon.
Bye for now,
Jane x



This is an amazing card, so much detail to discover! Loving the wax seal ♡
