Dragonflies – Visible Image

Hello there! We have more fabulous inspiration to share with you here on the blog today.

Over to Dot Leathbridge…


I’ve been having fun with the new dragonflies from Visible Image!


As there are now new smaller ones, the set is so versatile.

This card uses the acrylic block technique as a background with some dragonflies stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.


The ink used is Color Burst. I love the intense colour that this product has!


The words are also stamped with the same ink.


After seeing/reading somewhere that you can spray your stamp lightly with water and mix colour onto the stamp with your finger, I decided to give it a go with the words. No different to what you do on the acrylic block…just using a stamp instead.
The multi-tones that came out on the words was amazing!!! And as long as you don’t have it too wet, then the words are quite crisp.

The stamp set used was:

This is my final DT make for this year for Visible Image.
I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.
Take care!
Dot

I can see a rainbow – Visible Image stamps

Good Evening 🙂 Thanks for coming to visit us.

Here with some Wonderful Wednesday inspiration is Lisa Nyards…

 

You can’t guess what I’ve done! Oh, maybe you can, the pictures will tell… lol.

I’ve digged through my boxes for some rainbow ink pads, and I found a bunch of them. To my surprice they worked just perfect and I had to play some. I’ve used the leaf from Colours of the Wind from Visible Image. The rainbow pads are small so I used three of them, one green, one blue and one red/yellow one. Dabbed them direct to the stamp and made sure they didn’t overlap too much so they would misscolor from each other.

Then I used a fine spray mist and misted water over the stamp to blend the colors a bit. Stamped the image on watercolor paper. I hold the stamp down for a few sec before I lift it up to let the paper absorbe some color. As I could see there was color left on the stamp, and wanted to see how much, I misted the stamp once again with water and stamped again. It become a lighter impression, fully usable.

Then I stamped the words in black on top.. Imperfection is beauty and All my Tomorrows.
