I hope you have had a fab new year and are looking forward to a happy, healthy and creative 2018 :) As it is the beginning of a new year, it is a great time to play with some new stamps that I have got from Visible Image. I have liked their designs for some time but this is the first order that I have placed with them and here is what I made:
First up I created a watercolour background with some Ken Oliver Colour Bursts before stamping and heat embossing the eyes from Visible Image's Face It set. I added some details using my Indian Flower and Stars stencils and added a touch of gold sparkle pen to the eyes. The sentiment is from Sizzix. I will link this up at Simon's Monday Challenge where the theme is Something New as it is a new (to me) stamp set. I
Next, I used the gorgeous jellyfish from Visible Image's Dare to Swim. I coloured the stamps directly with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens, spritzed with water and stamped on to white card. I love the vibrant colours of these underwater creatures so used some strong pinks and oranges with my sparkle pens. The sentiment is from Concord and 9th. I will link this card up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where it is Anything Goes. I shall also link up at Inkspirational where the challenge is just stamping. I hope it is ok that I have die cut the square stamped panel but, if not, just ignore my entry :). I will also join in with the January Watercolour challenge at Happy Little Stampers (without the optional sequins). Finally, I shall link up at AAA Cards where the theme is Sparkle as I have used my sparkle pens (the jellyfish do shimmer in real life!).
I shall certainly be expanding my Visible Image collection as their designs are just so distinctive!
Thanks for stopping by,
