Wings of change for Visible Image

 Hello everyone another fortnight has whizzed by and I am back with my latest blogged design team make for Visible Image. For today's make I made a summery canvas. There are clickable links on all the products I used which will take you to the website.

These are the sets I used;

Wings of change

and to add texture to the butterflies the very useful background stamp set

Grunge tones

with the Hope definition from Equality, hope and love stamp set.

This is what I go up to; I made a distress ink background using these colours;

I stamped the word hope from the  Equality, hope and love set in the centre. I stamped the words from the Wings of change at the top and bottom,  you will see this in the final photos. 
To add texture and interest to the butterflies I made some quick textured backgrounds using these inks. First up is this one, you can see how I used the stamps from Grunge tones
 I then stamped some of the butterflies.
I also made a more white based one using the same inks but I didn't smear any ink onto the card. 
Again I stamped some butterflies and this time added some clear embossing powder and heat embossed them. 
I cut them out, minus their antennae, as they would be layered up on the canvas.

I put together my design by stamping the butterflies straight onto the canvas and then adhered the matching cut out butterfly on top.

I added some glossy accents to some of the circles in the words and on the butterflies. When dry I stitched around the edges using my sewing machine,

Then I matted it up onto white and blue card. 

Here is my finished canvas
with a couple of close ups;

and one final shot;

The Visible Image Group page is over on Facebook. Our friendly Group is here would be lovely to see you pop over. You will see lots of gorgeous makes by the DT and customers to inspire your own creativity. 
 I organize a monthly artist trading card swap there.  We celebrated a whole year of swapping in May. Whether you are a new stamper or a seasoned one you are most welcome to join us. 100 members, worldwide, have taken part since it started. It's been such fun and it's so lovely to receive a unique piece of art from your partner in the post. The details for each swap are put up in the group on 23rd of the month. There is no "monthly" commitment, just join in when you have the time.

The main Visible Image Facebook business page is here

Visible Image also has its own You Tube channel here where you can see videos and Lives to give you lots of inspiration and ideas. 

Their Instagram page can be found here 

Pinterest here

and their website is here. 

 You will also find me on Instagram here; @jane.tyrrell where I share many more samples than I have the time to blog.

A little heads up that if you would like to learn how to make distress ink backgrounds in person and how I use  them with Visible Image stamps, stencils and dies, I will be demoing for Country View Crafts (one of VI's UK stockists) at the Stamperama Show at Bedford International athletic centre on Sunday 25th September. Here is a link for the details. Pop the date in your diary. I will share more of my demos and samples during the coming weeks. 

Back soon,

Bye for now,
