Free Soul

Hello! Thanks for visiting our blog today. We have lots of fabulous inspiration coming your way on this sunny Bank Holiday Monday!

Next up is Dot Leathbridge…

This week I’ve done something a little different for Visible Image.

Combining the ‘Free Soul’ stamp with an image transfer background.

 

 

The rustic finish to the image transfer really appeals to me with this one.
No – it’s not a picture of me (you thought it was me didn’t you lol)
It’s a random one from a magazine!

 

Then the words are stamped to give a crisp contrast to the background.
The drips on the edges are also stamped to help frame it.

 

Stamps used are:

 

 

 

Fantastic card Dot.. very different and the image works so well with the words! Thank you ♡

Be Brave

Hello! We have an absolute stunner to share with you next.
Over to Dot Leathbridge…


We all go through those times when we need a little reminding that we can do it,
or know someone who needs extra strength for whatever challenges they face.


That is where this card comes from… those times when a tear is near.

Young Mind. Wild Heart. Free Soul

Hi there! We are back with lots more inspiration today here on the blog.

First up is Corrie Herriman with not one but three stunning cards…


Hello everyone,
and welcome to my post where today I am sharing three cards I made with Visible Image Stamps. These are all from the newest release.

All three cards have a gelli printed base. The first and third card are from the same gelli print, the middle one is a different one.




The sentiment here was heat embossed twice with two different colours of embossing powder and you can just see the dark powder peeking out at the edges.




She looks so serene, doesn’t she ?




And this one is really simple. I so loved that background that I didn’t want to cover it up too much…



I have used the following stamp sets:






Thank you so much for stopping by today !
Corrie



Wow these gorgeous cards, loving those backgrounds! The sentiment on the first card looks like velvet!
And yes such a serene face ♡ Thanks Corrie!

Life Can Be Tough

Hello! Yes we are back with even more gorgeous inspiration! If you have missed any of our catch up posts this weekend you will find them HERE!

Over to Veerle Moreels who has a beautiful card and a video tutorial for you…


Today I have a CAS card made with the Face it stamps and another beautiful words stamp.

I have to admit…these words already ended up on a lot of cards, I’m completely in love with it.


Even though it’s a CAS card I did film it, just to show how easy it is to keep the eyes nice and white…



The end result…

Life Can Be Tough

Hello! We are back with more amazing NEW stamps inspiration here on the blog today!

Elina Strömberg has got her hands on our Face it stamps…

Hi!
Have you seen all the gorgeous new stamps Visible Image has just released? If you have missed some, you can view the entire new collection here!

One of the inspiring new sets is Face It! that is perfect for cardmaking but also for art journaling. I played with the set and the face stencil last weekend, and made this painted journal page:


2017-02-09 Visible Image - face stamps - life can be tough - Elina Stromberg


There are several layers of acrylic paints and crayon colours on the page, and I really enjoyed the creative process. Painting a face has never been so easy! She has a serious face, and I thought the stamped quote was a perfect match to her expression:


Using the face stencil is super simple. The only thing that may require some attention is the positioning of the eyes, nose and mouth. The eye line divides the head in half (measured from the top of the head to the chin), and a common mistake is to place the eyes either too low or too high. My impression was that the stencil is indicating the face shape only until the hair line, so the eye line is above the center of the stencil. Once you have the eyes in place, the printed face image on the stamp set will help you in positioning the mouth/nose.

The below picture from WikiHow may be helpful:


If you’re not creating a complete face (like on a card) there’s usually no need to consider the positioning at all 🙂



Here are pictures of the Visible Image products I used (click on the pictures for more info):


    

   


Wishing you a wonderful week!

Glimmer of Light Journal – Visible Image

Hello again! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration for you!

Over to Sue Davies who has a brilliant journal page to share…


Good morning, it’s my turn to share a Visible Image project with you, and I’ve been feeling very bold!  I’ve made a journal page, straight into the book without a safety net.



visible-image-glimmr-of-light-moth-stamp-journal-page-sue-davies


This is the best photograph I can get as we’re slightly lacking in the old daylight department.





This is lots of Distress Ink blended in patches, with some stencilling in the same colours.  I liked it, but boy was it bright, so I toned it down a bit with some gesso through a stencil. The edging stamp is from the Music on World Off set.





Time for some fun now in building up the background. I’ve used Ranger Archival inks to stamp my quotes from Imagine, Dream, Inspire, and there’s also circles from Universal.





I’ve been wanting to use the Glimmer of Light stamp set for a while now, but I’ve been in Halloween (thankfully gone) or Christmas (OMG it’s getting close) mode for weeks, but today was playday!





Don’t you just love this moth! He’s just stamped onto the background and coloured in places with Stabilo pencils. I stamped the light bulb into the previously stamped circle, then stamped the circle again and embossed in white.





And this is the quote, stamped and embossed with black fine EP. I’ve just highlighted bits and bobs with stencils and Portfolio pastels. This was such fun to make once I’d got over the terrors of stamping in my shiny new journal.


For lots more daily inspiration please head over to our Facebook group.


If Pinterest is your thing, you can find us here.


Have a brilliant week, and thanks very much for looking x


Isn’t this fabulous! So much awesome detail to gaze at.. Thank you Sue ♡


We’re keeping the inspiration coming today so pop back soon… and if you missed any of our recent posts you will find them HERE!
