Good morning it's time for my fortnightly blogged Visible Image design team post. The new autumn release is now for sale worldwide and has gone down a storm. There are 9 gorgeous new sets to choose for and if you have been sleeping under a log (with the cute hedgehog) and missed them do check them out on the website here. I have already shared lots of my makes with the 3 nature sets so I thought I would share something different today.
I used one part of the gorgeous new Create with your soul A7 size set . This emotive sentiment was written many years ago by Helen, aka Mrs Visible Image and was a best seller. It has been updated and this new variation is now in 3 parts, it is not a single stamp, which makes it so versatile. You can use any part or all 3!
I teamed it with the delightful tree and birds from the VI minis #1 set. This a a set with some of their iconic stamps....in ATC or mini size. I am hoping to see lots more of these sets in the future.
I wanted to capture a moonlit autumnal moment so I created a distress ink background first.
I took a square of super smooth 300gsm card stock. I used salvaged patina, kitsch flamingo and dusty concord inks. I masked off a moon after I had added a little smudge of kitsch and patina ink and then blended out from the moon starting with kitsch, then patina and finally dusty colours. I then ripped some copy paper to make the "hills" and added a little more patina and dusty ink colour.
This was my finished background.
I then stamped the tree in Versafine clair
with the birds flying out.
The Create with your soul set is in 3 parts so you can mix and match as you feel or use all 3 parts. I chose to you just the "Believe with your mind" part as it really fitted the scene I had created. I stamped it just under the moon and clear embossed it for extra texture and shine.
