Stay grounded

Hello, oh my goodness you are going to LOVE the new releases from Visible Image! This is my first sample using one of the new stamp sets.




I adore trees! This set is awesome because it allows you to layer the stamps to create dimension. It is so versatile!

I thought I would begin with a night scene for a change. A couple of days previously I was playing with my brusho powders. As usual I got carried away and ended up making several pages of murky  purple smudges. Of course I couldn’t bin them because I’d used precious  Steena stamping card! However the more I studied these leftovers I thought perfect for making galaxies .. as you do!

So the page looked something like this ( the one I used was slightly different)


I got my pastel pencils out and began to highlight the colours and add a few chalky galaxy effects. There was a lot of blending and smudging!

I placed the lightest colour (pink) at the bottom of the sky and stamped the background trees in grey along this area.  Then I stamped the foreground trees in black.


I added a few lines of blue, purple and black in front and used  part of the background set to create shrubbery at the front of the picture.


To create the stars I made splatters using white acrylic ink and a fan brush. The larger stars were enhanced drawing lines with a white pen and a ruler.



I stamped the birds and highlighted the wings using a gold pen.


The brushos had made line marks so I just had to pretend there was a meteor shower going on!


The sentiments were stamped on to lilac card and mounted on foam pads.

I hope you like it!

Lots more exciting stuff to come including must have stencils!!!
