Hello there! Hands up who bought some of the new Visible Image zodiac stamps? Well do you love them? We in the team have had a wonderful time playing with them. Today I’m sharing one of my designs using the Leo set. The lion is just so magestic!




I began this project testing out some Chinese calligraphy paper that I had bought for collage work. I sprayed it with ink and then randomly ripped it up into strips and collaged these onto card using mat gel medium.


I then used starlight paints to make some ink splaters for additional texture. This metallic paint is wonderful for this purpose.


For the background behind the lion’s head I wanted to create an inky Maine . So using glossy card, I spayed some yellow ink and applied aquatint inks blowing the ink using a straw.


I stamped the lion’s head and sentiments using black wow sparkle powder. I coloured the lion using Spectrun Nior sparkle pens.

I had created a sun dial from air dry paper clay a while ago for another project and didn’t use it so I decided to colour it and gild it with pebeo wax and use it as an extra layer to emphasise the lion.


I assembled the elements including the wording, layering it onto complimentary card. I also added some black thread and purple gems for additional interest.




He’s a handsome devil isn’t he!

Thats it for now.
