Jazzing Up The New Year!

Hello! We have some awesome musical inspiration for you today from our Australian designer Dot Leathbridge…


Herald In The New Year


This jazz player from the “Jazz it Up” set seemed like the perfect way to kick off the new year.

I hope everyone had a fantastic night for the New Year’s celebrations, partied hard and stayed safe.

 

For me…it was down at the beach, slouching back in a camper chair and letting the fireworks fall down right over the top of me. Catching up with old friends, meeting new ones and having a couple of quiet drinks…it was another great night of seeing out the old and heralding in the new year.

This is the beginning of my 2nd year with Visible Image and I can’t wait to see what exciting things Mark and Helen have in store for us all.

 

Mark and Helen have also settled into their new HQ and are rearing to go.


The background for this one is quite simple, using alcohol inks. The brightness of the colours make the silhouette of the jazz player stand out.  This Jazz It Up set has been a favourite of mine since the very beginning…so versatile and full of fun!

 

I love the new additions to this set and what has been introduced across the whole range at Visible Image.  The new stars from the Feel The Beat set were a perfect finish for this card.

 

For me, I have been adding to my stock and now have quite a good range of Visible Image stamps for sale in Australia….so, exciting times ahead. My e-mail addy for any enquiries is: dleathbridge@hotmail.com

Jazz It Up – Visible Image stamps

Good Evening! Hope Monday is being gentle with you!!!

We are kicking off this week’s inspiration with something funky from Kim Bacon…

Hello!

Today I have a jazzy little card for you using a fantastic silhouette of a sax player, as well as some of the brilliantly versatile background stamps.



Visible Image stamps - Jazz It Up - Kim Bacon


As is usual for me I started colouring some white card with Brusho paints. I just love the zesty lime alongside the hot orange.

I used bleach – yep, bleach – with the plasma squiggle from the Universal set.


Visible Image stamps are made with top quality photopolymer and I haven’t yet had any problem using bleach on them. I do still err on the side of caution and wipe my stamps straight away with a baby wipe and then after the crafting session I wash them in warm water before air drying and storing back in their pockets.


Anyway, squiggles done, I then used a blended ink pad in shades of green with the spotty plasma circle from the Universal set directly over the top.

Using black embossing powder I stamped the jazz player and the sentiment onto pieces of card that would contrast well when added to the background card.



Here are the stamp sets I used for this card…

Happy Days!  Kim
