Create Your Calm

Hello once again…

I’ve been itching to share this Visible Image DT project with you all as I just love how it’s turned out!  It really got my creative juices flowing and I adore all the different textures on there from the stamps I’ve used.

I started out by heat embossing The Ripple Effect in white embossing powder onto watercolour card before adding distress oxide inks in a watercolour style around the ripples themselves.

The oxides inks pads are great for creating watercolour backgrounds

To create a hint of sparkle to the project, Fibonacci was heat embossed using a gorgeous metallic copper powder, which looks beautiful when the light hits it.  Next, to contrast with the calming hues, I added Infusion powders to the areas in-between.

I used Anita’s 3D Clear Gloss to make the ripples as it has a fine nib so is perfect for smaller areas

To build on the texture, I stamped the net from the Mesh-ellaneous set in a deep blue and then added the shoal of fish  and the sea plants (both from Dare to Swim).

I’m a little bit in love with Wow’s Copper Embossing Powders as they add warmth to a project with a hint of sparkle

With everything dry I could begin to add my main focal images; the gorgeous Sea Horse and the sentiment from Create Your Calm.

Even with all the different textures, the make still felt like it needed some dimension to it so I added clear gloss to the ripple areas to make it look glassy and add some movement and I just love the finished effect!  The ripple stamp works just beautifully with the Create Your Calm and Dare to Swim sets… def more to investigate there!!

Check out the Visible Image blog to see what the rest of the DT have been making.  That’s all from me for now… catch up again soon!
