My day for Visible Image inspiration has ticked on round again (where do these days go?!) and today I have something a little different for you.
I honestly didn’t know where I was going with this card, it evolved as I was going along, as it usually does with me. Rarely do I have an actual plan for my makes… I just see what happens and what works.
I started by smooshing Distress Oxides (Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers) onto trimmed watercolour card and spritzed with water to get a watery, inky background. Using two acetate circles, I used Derwent Inktense pencils to draw around the circles and took a brush to add water and soften the edges before adding Distress Crayons. I then used a Wow Embossing pen and their Rose Gold powder to add definition.
I then decided to add more texture using the polka dot stencil from Set The Tone and I heat embossed this using Wow’s Verdigris powder. Having decided to go with some sore of aqua theme (as that seemed obvious where I was heading) I used one of the mesh stamps from Mesh-ellaneous around the edges.
With the background complete, I took the larger fish from Art Rebel and heat embossed using ‘Flame’ from Wow.
Having trimmed one fish from card, I decided to add some netting (from an orange bag) and some fish line under it to add to the whole pollution theme.
For the sentiment I took the large letters from Just Be Happy to make the word ‘recycle’ and heat embossed them in Rose Gold before trimming and matting onto white card and adding to the card using foam tape.
