You can’t have not seen the new Visible Image stamps that are on pre-order now… and aren’t they beauties?! I absolutely love this Love is Love set… bang on perfect for these volatile times in which we find ourselves.
I’ve barely been able to put this stamp set down since it arrived Friday and my head is whirring away with possibilities and ideas for it.
To begin the card, I’ve added some star washi tape strips to watercolour card and gesso’d over the top to protect the tape. After overlaying the Square Root stencil, I’ve created an ombre effect using Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean to which I’ve then lightly spritzed water over to add texture.
After using a black permanent fine liner to draw in some scribbly lines in the stencil gaps, I’ve flicked on some black indian ink to break up the blue and add extra interest.
Having already measured where the two face stamps would lay on the card, I used the sentiment for the set, Love is Love, down the centre.
The two profile stamps are just brilliant! The words on them (trust, love, eternity, friendship, loyalty, empathy, kindness etc) are so bang on trend and perfect for all types of cards and journalling and I cannot wait to journal with this set!
I’ve heat embossed the profile stamps using WOW!’s Opaque Bright White embossing powder and then used oxide ink pads (Candied Apple, Picked raspberry, Seedless preserve, Blueprint Sketch, Cracked Pistachio and Mustard Seed) to create the rainbow effect. Once trimmed, I’ve secured them directly to the card before matting onto black card to finish.
Once again, the new stamps are on pre-order now from the online shop and are due for release on Friday June 26th… just in time for the weekend!
See you soon, H xx
