Stay Grounded

Good Evening! We have more awesome inspiration here on the blog today! Lisa Taggart has an incredible project to share with you featuring stamps from one of our stunning new stamp sets, which includes some really great quotes, including ‘Grow Stronger’ and ‘Stay Grounded’…


Hello, oh my goodness you are going to LOVE the new releases from Visible Image! This is my first sample using one of the new stamp sets…

I adore trees! This set is awesome because it allows you to layer the stamps to create dimension. It is so versatile!

I thought I would begin with a night scene for a change. A couple of days previously I was playing with my brusho powders. As usual I got carried away and ended up making several pages of murky  purple smudges. Of course I couldn’t bin them because I’d used precious Sheena stamping card! However the more I studied these leftovers I thought perfect for making galaxies .. as you do!

So the page looked something like this ( the one I used was slightly different)

I got my pastel pencils out and began to highlight the colours and add a few chalky galaxy effects. There was a lot of blending and smudging!


I placed the lightest colour (pink) at the bottom of the sky and stamped the background trees in grey along this area.  Then I stamped the foreground trees in black.

I added a few lines of blue, purple and black in front and used  part of the background set to create shrubbery at the front of the picture.

To create the stars I made splatters using white acrylic ink and a fan brush. The larger stars were enhanced drawing lines with a white pen and a ruler.

I stamped the birds and highlighted the wings using a gold pen.

The brushos had made line marks so I just had to pretend there was a meteor shower going on!

The STAY GROUNDED sentiments were stamped on to lilac card and mounted on foam pads.

I hope you like it!


Lots more exciting stuff to come including must have stencils!!!
