A theatrical sample for Visible Image's brand new stamps release

As I promised on Monday today I am sharing my 2nd Design Team sample made with stamps from the brand new Visible Image release. If you missed my first post you can see it here. Over the next few days Helen will be sharing more of the new release over on Visible Image blog here. They will also be shared on their Facebook page here so don't miss out...why not like their page, click "get notifications" and you will be amongst the first to be able to see all the amazing work my fellow design team members have created for you. You will be blown away by just how unique this new range of stamps are. 

So to tease a little today before I share my card I dug a couple of my old books from the bookshelf...

I really smiled when I opened this copy as it was the only prize I ever won at High School...for Greek 1976!! I love the Odyssey, my fave Greek epic.
Now here is another clue...a bit of intrigue
 and even murder perhaps.....😂

 and my poor Hb's old copy of a Tale of Two cities has pages missing.....

OK....I will let you in on the secret now and share my sample card made with another stamp set from the new release...this one is the awesome


I apologise for this very dark and blurry process photo..but this was taking pre Christmas when I was very busy creating on my kitchen work side. This is what I got up to. I creased and tore some paper and card, adding some pumice grey distress ink.

I also stamped some masks onto book pages from my A tale of two cities paperback,
I use book pages a lot in my crafting.
I cut out the just the eyes of the tragic mask and fussy cut both masks.

I then put all my elements together. Here is my very theatrical Jane's Journal Greek Tragedy

and a couple of close up of my grizzly card

and a side view to show all the torn and crumpled edges.

I even added a mask inside, just for a full theatrical flourish!


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Frilly and Funkie 1/3  3 is not a crowd I used 3 masks, 2 outside and 1 inside my card.
Pixie's snippets playground week 315/6
The Artistic stamper 3/3 anything goes
As you like it 3/3 anything goes
Craft Stamper take it make it January anything goes
Allsorts 2/3 Something new my new stamps!
Cute card Thursday 1/3 something new
The male room new beginnings I hope this is the beginning of lots of creativity with my brand new stamps!
Penny Black and More 2/3 something new  these brand new, never seen before stamps!

  1. Are you sure you didn't cut your finger in the kitchen Jane? A very theatrical card and the masks look good on the book paper. i could see them being a useful addition to Halloween too!

  2. What a fabulous card Jane! It's very theatrical and the red drips down the back are spine chilling! Such a fun and creative card, love it!! I was always more of an Agatha Christie, Nancy Drew gal myself, but I did enjoy Phantom of the Opera. lol. sending hugs :)

  3. A great make Jane! Very exciting with all the new Visible Image releases this week. Love the theatrical feel of this one and perfect for our something new theme at Penny Black and More Challenges xxxx

  7. A very dramatic card, Jane! Takes me back to my first reading of Shakespeare.. it was very hard to read and understand for me. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  8. Hi Jane, I saw your card this evening on the V.I. Facebook live, it is even more gorgeous in real life, stunning!!!.

  9. Oh wow - how brave chopping up books like that. Stunning result Jane - perhaps I should stop being such a wimp - although I did buy an old dictionary a while back in the local charity shop I would bottle out at chopping up a school prize. :) LOVE the drama of the red!

  10. Wow, this is amazing Jane, I love that you stamped the masks onto old book pages (I keep 1 book just for this purpose too) I love to see book text added to cards, I haven't done it in a while but this is a great reminder of how great it looks!
