Journal Page

I thought I'd have a change for my DT project this week and do a couple of journal pages.  I'm still very new to this, but I do enjoy it.  I got some new Visible Image stamps this week so was itching to try them out.
I gave the pages a coat of Gesso to start, then mixed some Tea Dye reinker with some water in a spritzer and sprayed, letter the colour run down the pages.  I stamped on the inside of the envelope the stamps came in with the script stamp and punched them out.  I also used the envelope to stamp the sentiments onto, added some random stamping with Tea Dye and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks, and also a little bit of stenciling.

'Time' for Visible Image

I used the 'Bleeding Tissue' technique for the centre of  this card.
I then over stamped with a stamp from the Ink Splats set, love these.  I used a couple of different sized tops, pressed into the ink pad, for the circles.  Finished off with a little bit of distressing round the edges.
The stamps used for this one are as follows -

A Bit More Clarity and Visible Image.

I've been playing with the Clarity bubbles stencil again, along with stamps from Visible Image.
Using just one Distress Ink - Mermaid Lagoon.
 Overlaying the stencil and using two Distress Inks - Abandoned Coral and Twisted Citron.
Just one Distress Ink - Abandoned Coral.  I dried the ink off with my heat gun, then placed the stencil over the ink again and pressed through it with Versamark, then heat embossed with Crystal Print Magic from Debbi Moore Designs, to give it shine and sparkle, not that you can see it much on the photo..... lol.

A Bit of Clarity.....

A new stencil and some stamps from Clarity Stamping.  I just love this stencil......
I used just one colour Distress Ink through the stencil, Cracked Pistachio, and just made it lighter in places.  Apart from the butterflies and flower, which are from Inkylicious, the stamps are from the Wee Folk collection, cute aren't they. 
I'd like to enter this into the present challenge at Artistic Stamper where the theme is Summer. 

Visible Image

It's Sunday and time for me to show you a project using stamps from Visible Image.  
I made the background on my Gelli Plate using acrylic paints, and a couple of background stamps.  I then stamped Woman Inkognito in Versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I did the same with the sentiment.
Stamps I used are -
Cracked Background

 For the background on this one, I used the 'Shaving Foam Technique', if you haven't tried it you must, it's so much fun.  The sentiment is one of the brand new releases, available now at Visible Image.

I stamped the butterfly twice, once on the card and again on a piece of acetate, which was attached by the body and the wings bent up just a little, and finished of with gems.
Me Time

GDT at Country View Crafts

I was really happy to be asked to join the rest of the Country View Crafts team as GDT for June.  The theme for this challenge is Shabby Chic, which I think everyone loves.........  It's a while since I've made this kind of card, so I really enjoyed making it.
Here's my card.
The backing papers are from the Linen Closet paper stack by DCWV.  I cut them to size and distressed the edges a little.  I used Sue Wilson dies for the lager oval, and a die from the same set for the sentiment oval.  The sentiment is a stamp by Phil Martin.  The flourishes were cut with a Marianne die and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, which I coloured a little with Distress Inks.

I blew the dust off my Cameo for this one and cut a shadow box on it.  I inked the background with Aquatints, a couple of shades of Adirondacks, Raspberry and Willow and Distress Ink - Vintage Photo. I also over stamped in the same colours,  The flower and words were stamps with black Versafine and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  The flowers and leaves were cut with Sue Wilson Dies.
