Hello again everyone,
I’m back today sharing a card I made using the new (and rather popular!) See Everything stamp set from Visible Image. I absolutely adore this set… ticks all the boxes for me. You can make grungy distressed cards or something elegant and simple.
I made the card for my daughter’s birthday and I knew she would also love this set as she is very much into graphic images and bright colours.
Obviously the main image is the See Everything stamp which I’ve reversed to get the full face effect. If you haven’t used this technique before (I hadn’t – good ol’ YouTube!) I found stamping it carefully onto acetate and then using the acetate to ‘stamp’ the image the easiest method. You do have to be careful and not slide the stamp when stamping initially or when pressing the acetate onto your background but if you’re careful you can get some amazing effects! I used Versafine to stamp and then I heat embossed both images in Wow’s Superfine Black powder (it really is the best).
Before adding the background colour, I masked out the areas I wanted to colour using Pēbēo’s Drawing Gum. Once the gum had fully dried (air dry) I used watercolour to add the background colour and allowed it to dry once more before adding Distress Crayon through the Two Tone stencil. I then smudged the circles a bit using a watercolour brush as I didn’t want a perfect circle.
I could then do the bit I love… peeling away all the gum! This reveals beautifully white areas I could then paint using a mixture of watercolours and Distress Spray Stains.
Wanting to fill the card as much as possible, I then stamped various other Visible Image stamps (see below) to fill the areas. I love the little lightbulb from Glimmer of Light and have highlighted them using a Posca pen and in-filled using Derwent Intense pencils.
Once I had all the different stamps done and dusted and everything was coloured, I added Nuvo Aqua Shimmer in Glitter Gloss to some of the circles and then Ranger’s good old Glossy Accents to others.
To finish, I’ve matted the background onto bright yellow and orange card before popping on a card blank (8×8″).
I have to say, she loved the card and I was chuffed with how it turned out!
So, here is the pretty extensive list of Visible Image stamps used… see if you can spot which ones I’ve used from each set!
Phew! Think I got them all!?
There has been some stunning makes using the new mixed stamps on the Visible Image FaceBook page so don’t forget to pop in and check them out. Everyone’s makes look just stunning!
Hope to see you all again soon… H xx
