Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog!
The mixture of the two stamps works brilliantly and I really enjoyed playing with the textures and layers… as always!
How fabulous is that sunny sun?! She’s beaming out and I’ve used two layers to make the best of her sun rays. What you can’t see on the photo is a little hint of gold shimmer around the sun’s face but if you look really (really!) closely you can see a bit of a shimmer on the darker orange on the left there.
The wonderful sparkly clouds have been made using Visible Image’s Lava stencil and crackle paste to which I sprinkled on a white shimmer embossing powder while the paste was still fresh. Once the paste has dried, then you can melt the powder and you get this fabulous bubbly texture… which for me is just amazing!
I adore the Midnight Sky set… that little moon and the dinky astronaut that comes with the set is just perfect. Here I’ve coloured the moon using Arteza brush pens and I love the pale purple I’ve used on him… with that grey?! Delicious! He’s on a galaxy style background with a few Posca pen splatters here and there and those tiddly stars are heat embossed… and I don’t mind the extra splats of powder around them as it kind of echoes the larger stars.
Obviously the large stars are also heat embossed and layered up with foam tape so the star and I’ve scrunched some white cotton underneath for extra texture and interest.
And the sentiment… well… it’s just perfect and totally true and I love it.
I’ve made a short video for this make which you can watch here… it even has some funky music so you don’t have to listen to me wittering on! Haha! I’m trying to get into making videos and tutorials more but I find I have to be really organised in my making and I’m just not that type of maker. An idea will spark off a general idea but I have been known to completely do a 180 degree turn and make something entirely different but it’s great making the videos and I’m chuffed with how it’s come out.
If you didn’t catch the recent Facebook Live that Helen and Mark did with all the latest DT samples you can watch it here. Lots of ideas and inspiration and amazing makes from my fellow fabulous DT ladies and of course all the new stamps are available to order now and I know they’ve been super popular once again!
Don’t forget you can find Visible Image on all the socials… Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter so do give them a follow as they sometimes just give their stuff away!! Shocking behaviour!! Haha!!
Catch up again soon everyone… stay safe. H xx
