Well hello there…
So how are the Christmas preparations going? I’m ‘nearly’ there but all this Christmas prep really interferes with your crafting and I’ve had barely any time to create lately and that always frustrates me. However, luckily I have a fair few makes ‘tucked away’ for busy periods and this drippy ink make is one of them.
Using Visible Image‘s fabulous Don’t Judge stamp set and Collision stencil, I began by spritzing a rainbow of Distress Spray Stains onto watercolour card (I used Blueprint Sketch, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed). This is pretty messy but I have a cardboard box where I do all my spritzing with a heap of scrap paper in the bottom to catch drips and soak up excess.
I used Wow!’s Ebony Superfine Embossing Powder to heat emboss the figure stamp onto white card and took the collision stencil and grey/black ink pads (Distress Oxide ink pads in Iced Spruce, Hickory Smoke and Black Soot) and stencilled into the space.
After trimming, I used a fine liner to scribble into the white lines left by the stencil
The sentiment comes from the Brighten the World set and I stamped it several times so I could trim the words individually and place them where I wanted too. I decided to stamp the word ‘colour’ in different colours to highlight the sentiment.
The words were matted onto black card and everything adhered into place before matting the whole thing onto more card and securing onto an 8×8″ card blank.
Here’s some of the products I used for the make…
As always, don’t forget to follow Visible Image over on Facebook and join in on their group page where everyone can post to ask questions and share ideas and inspiration. Instagram is always an excellent source of inspiration and aside from the Visible Image page, if you search for the #visibleimage or #visibleimagestamps you can a plethora of makes from all over! It’s fabulous to see!
All that now remains is to say is thank you for reading and staying with me in 2019. I know my blog isn’t the most used or read but it’s nice to get a few followers.
I’ll see you in 2020 where I may have some rather fabulous news to share… 😉
Happy Christmas to you all and have a safe start to 2020.
