Hello again everyone,
I’m back again with my latest make for the Visible Image DT and this time I’ve concentrated on texture using the stencils and the background stamps… and who doesn’t love a bit of texture!
I started by adding Distress Oxide Ink Pads to watercolour paper to create a watery background and then, using the Fibres stencil, I’ve applied modelling paste. Once fully dry, more colour has been added before flicking white Gesso over the 8×8″ background.
You can see from the photograph, I have then used various stamps to add yet more layers before stitching around the corners to frame the card.
I didn’t want to add too much more detail to the card, so kept it fairly simple by adhering a die-cut heart that has been coloured and then had a thick layer of crackle paint added. Again, I love the extra texture this adds, especially as it’s flaking away in parts.
To finish the card, I added a simple sentiment courtesy of the ‘Just be Happy‘ stamp set which has been backed onto black card and adhered to the card using 3D foam dots.
Regular followers will know what a huge advocate of texture and layering I am and the Visible Image stencils are perfect for this. When combined with the stamps, the images you can create are never ending!
And here’s the list of the lovely ingredients I’ve used:
Distress Ink Pads: Mown Lawn, Shabby Shutters, Crushed Olive Oxides: Cracked Pistachio, Peeled Paint, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick
Other products used: Distress Crackle Paint, Liquitex Modelling Paste, StazOn Jet Black ink pad, Archival Watering Can ink pad
