I’m back today sharing another make for Visible Image.
I’ve gone all sparkly and glittery today having bought some gorgeous new embossing powders at the NEC last weekend and have used them on the utterly divine Life Is Beautiful stamp to create a multi coloured, textural Hummingbird on a geometric background.
The background itself is made using the 1983 stencil which I’ve layered it up using different Oxide ink pads (as I wanted a chalky, matt finish). Although it’s not very clear in the photographs, I have used the Count Me In stencil over 1983 and used the Distress Resist Spray to add texture. Once I was happy with the colours, I’ve added the Grate-Ful stencil, again moving it around to create a grid pattern.
The circle details, to the right of the bird, are also stamped in glitter powder and I placed them here to break up the rigidity and geometric look of the background.
For the Hummingbird, I wanted to use teals and blues as I love them against the pinks and purples.
Having done a basic stamp using a white opaque embossing powder, I’ve then used glitter embossing powders to make him shine! Taking each colour at a time, I’ve stamped certain areas, added powder, melted and then done a different area to really build up the colour.
The sentiment has been stamped using one of the glitter powders used on the bird and have been added using foam tape. To finish, I’ve matted the image onto a shimmer teal coloured card and then onto a dark graphite shimmer card.
Here’s the Visible Image products I used for this make…
