Dare To Swim

Hi there, we still have a few more stunning projects to share with you today here on the blog, as we catch up with everything our incredible team have been creating with our NEW stamps!

Over to Elina Strömberg…


Today I’m sharing with you a card I made using the new ‘Dare To Swim’ stamp set by Visible Image:

2017-02-26 Visible Image - jellyfish stamp - dare to swim - Elina Stromberg

Aren’t those stamps gorgeous!

I stamped the images on light blue cardstock, and coloured them with a few blue and green Promarker colours.
The darker blue shades I inked with Distress inks.

For the white highlights I used a gel pen, and the white quote I stamped and heat-embossed on a piece of white vellum.
Attaching vellum especially on a dark background is sometimes tricky as the glue dots may show through.

The easiest solution is to fold the ends of the vellum strip on the back of the card and not to use glue on the card front at all.

The dark blue plants are die-cut using a Sizzis/Tim Holtz die from some time back.
Before gluing them on the card front I added some lighter colours on the leaves (with a white gel pen and a light blue pastel pen). Done!

Swim Deeper

Hello! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration as promised.. show much to share with you today!

Over to Dot Leathbridge…

Dare To Swim is one of the new stamp releases from Visible Image.

Blue Bottles are the jellyfish in our region that we often see washed up on the beach… painful too if you go swimming when they are about! They are only tiny, but they pack a fair punch.

This set has everything! From jellyfish, to weed, to fish, to bubbles – along with a sentiment.

For this card my distress crayons were used for the background.

It gives a lovely muted look and reminds me of what it looks like underwater.
The drips are done with the crayons too – so versatile!
