Todays Moments Tomorrows Memories - Visible Image


Hi friends....I hope you`ve all been well.  I am back featuring some new products from the latest release from Visible Image!  As soon as I saw this new stencil in the release, I knew exactly what I wanted to do and it turned out just as I had envisioned!  I hope you aren`t sick of seeing this technique yet, because it is one of my faves and will never get old lol.  

I did make 2 cards today, but changed up the colours, the orientation of the stencil and sentiment.  To begin both of them I sprayed the back of the Breakout Stencil and stuck it down really well to a piece of hot pressed watercolour paper.  I used hot pressed, as it has a smoother surface that would be perfect for stamping on later.

When I had first this idea in my head, this was the one that I had wanted to bring to life.  To start I choose a rainbow colour palette of pigment powders.  I sprinkled on the colours in rainbow order, being sure to overlap each one slightly, to have a nice colour blend and then spritzed with some water.  I had actually wanted to do a colour wheel type of look initially, but I was afraid that some colours next to one another might not blend too well.  Once I let the powders sit for about 30 secs and then dabbed off the excess water and powder with a paper towel.  By keeping the stencil on, you don`t run the risk of smudging any excess powder and water that may still be on the paper.  

For the 2nd card, I went with a palette of pinks, although one colour looks more of a coral in the pics.  For this one I also added some black splatters.  I kept the stencil on to dab off any remaining water and powder and added the black splatters.  It was set aside to dry for a few minutes before removing the stencil, so the risk of smudging the splatters would be minimal. 
Both panels were trimmed down and I stamped both sentiments using Onyx Black Versafine Ink and then heat embossed them using black embossing powder. I used the new Happiness Matters Stamp Set for the rainbow card and for the pink ombré card I used the Brighten the World Stamp Set.  Looking back I should have embossed them using clear embossing powder, as I did get some little black flecks of powder.....but nothing too bad. 

I then ran along the edges of both panels using a black marker to add a fine black border.  Both were directly adhered to a white A2 cardbase.....and that`s it!  I  love how these turned out.....they are exactly as I had imagined!  

I love using this simple technique to help to showcase these amazing powders....they really help the stencils to shine and be the main focus!

If you haven`t seen the brand new release from Visible Image, then head on over and check it won`t be disappointed....but then again, are you ever with them?!  I think that this stencil ma be going into my favourites and I am sure I will be using this over and over again.

Thank you so very much for stopping by today and spending a bit of your day with me.  I hope that I have inspired you a bit.  I wish you all the most wonderful and creative and that you find sometime to sit down and create something amazing!  Until next time,
