Visible Image Inspiration

Hello..

Well this is going to be my last live blog Post for a few weeks. We are moving house and I am having to pack away my craft room. I will still have scheduled posts to share and will try to comment on all your lovely posts as much as possible


I have a Mixed Media canvas to share today, I first painted my canvas with acrylic paints,then using Archival black ink stamped some background stamps "Grunge Harlequin" and "Bronte Script".
My heart was cut out of some card, I  painted this and grunged it up a bit with a black pen. I then stuck this to the canvas with some PVA glue .

I stamped my words from the "This is Me Set" onto some card,cut them out and stuck them down. The canvas was then edged with some red Gelato and once it was all dry I sanded my canvas all over.xxx

Visible Image Inspiration

Hello to you all,I am here today with my very first blog post sharing some inspiration using  Visible Image stamps.
I started off by making my background with Pan Pastels blending together Red , Yellow and Burnt Umber this was then sealed with cheap hairspray.
I then stamped the Feather and Grasses with versamark and white embossed
three times

To get the shadow I reinked the stamps with Frayed Burlap Distress ink and stamped to one side
I also dipped the edges of the card in Versamark and then white embossed.

Last of all,I white embossed the sentiment

I have used
