Hello to all my readers!
Hello to any new readers.
It goes like this, on a Monday I blog for my DT. I am on the Visible Image design team.
Each week I show you one of the pieces I have made using ONLY Visible Image stamps.
Hopefully my project will inspire you!
Make yourself a drink, pull up a seat and enjoy the ride!
Sometimes I get the inclination to do some serious cutting out! It may not be for anything in particular but I like to have a stock of bits ready to add to random projects. I have a few favourite Visible Image designs I like to stamp and cut. Butterflies is one of them but this rose stamp which was the freebie with Craft Stamper a while back, is another favourite!
Now don't worry if you don't have the freebie stamp because Visible Image do the same rose in a couple of sizes. Details at the bottom of the page.
I started as I usually do by colouring a couple of A3 pieces of card. Here I used dark pinks and pale greens which I then stamped over with the grunge polka dot. Once all this was dry I went over the whole area with a very very dry brushing of gesso. This took the edge off the colours and also gives a lovely chalky finish.
On a piece of card which was big enough to be the main background for the project I stamped the rose all over in a burgundy colour. On another piece I stamped and embossed the rose in white.
I then stamped some leaves from the Poinsettia set using just green watercolour paint.
Then came the cutting out! I settled down with a cuppa and got to work. Little while later I had a pile of roses and leaves!
Theses were arranged onto a piece of burgundy card and I used some of that 3D silicone glue to give them some height. I placed them in a swathe across the card, I used a piece of vintage lace to give some more interest.
I then stamped the sentiment which is from the More than Words group of stamps. A few faux gems to add a bit of sparkle and it was done!
