Hello my creative friends. It’s my day at Visible Image stamps today and I’ve decided to share the first of my Christmas samples using the latest fabulous New release Christmas stamps Visible Image really have got Christmas covered this year!
Here are the sets that I’ve used:
Here are the steps. I’ve mixed ink sprays; ink pads and gesso along with my usual highlighting tricks!
First an ink spray print.
Then some drawing and masking followed by some gesso painting.
I used ink pads and makeup brushes to paint in the shadow details of a moon and foreground.
Then the stamping, remembering that images further away are paler in shade and colour. Strokes of distress oxide across the trees create the illusion of mist. The sentiment was also added.
The small details were stamped and then coloured in white and yellow. Glitter glue touched here and there. The edges were also darkened.
You will find plenty more inspiration from the rest of the team and our group members on the
Visible Image group page on Facebook. Our friendly Group is here check it out for inspiration and support.
The main Visible Image Facebook page is here; there are regular giveaways…open world wide.
And the shop web site is here; where all their gorgeous stamps and stencils can be purchased.
Till next time..

In a very positive way . I love all your creations and I’m waiting for a video 😃
Magical! Your final details add so much depth, so worth the extra time! Thanks for the inspiration.
Thank you Arlene . Yes For me it’s all about the little details. I take a lot of time over these. I should say they aren’t difficult too. X
It’s so lovely Lisa. You have inspire me so much….and cost me a bloomin’ fortune with all my new pens, paints, spray etc etc 🤣
Sorry!! I hope you won’t regret getting them and your new materials give you joy!! Xx
No regrets at all, I just wish I had more time in the day to
play and practice.
Lisa when your using the spray inks, do you spray direct on your card and spritz with water or spray on a mat and pick up the ink on the card? Hope that makes sense.
I spray directly on to the card ( Sheena stamping card or water colour card) then I spritz. Finally I place a dry clean piece of card on top and smooth it down and hold it for a few seconds. When the card is separated you get two amazing prints. Leave to dry naturally. I do it the mat lift way sometimes too for a layering effect. The print version gives more to work with when creating a fantasy background. Don’t spray complimentary colours (opposites on colour wheel) on top of each other to avoid mud! Hope that helps! Xx
Another fabulous scene and so creative card, Lisa! Love, love it!!! 😀
Fabulous depth and details, which makes all the difference of course 😉 X
