The Right Direction - Visible Image

Wow, the weeks are absolutely flying by at the moment and it's my turn to share another piece of Visible Image DT inspiration already. 

I have chosen to use the fantastic The Right Direction stamp set from the recent Autumn release. This set is such a great one for the lads in our lives ( and girls that are into cars of course!) 

I started by applying distress ink through the Geometric Maze stencil. 

I wanted to use the maze as a road, so the next step was to add teeny white lines with a gel pen. 

 With the stencil still in place I added clear texture paste over the top to add some dimension. 

To finish I stamped and fussy cut the images  and adhered them to my card with 3D glue gel.

Erika's Maple ATC's

I have just spent a wonderfully relaxing half term week in a forest hideaway in the Forest of Deane, so it seems apt today to be sharing some autumnal ATC's I have created using the newly released  Erika's Maple stamp set from Visible Image. 

These were super quick to do and used up some scraps of card that I had.  I neglected to take step by steps, as they ran alongside another project I was working on but here's how I achieved them. 

The background was stamped using the ink lifted from alcohol ink on Yupo paper from another project, lifted and stamped onto mixed media card.  I also stamped some of the small leaves using Kaleidacolor ink, and used a water brush to drag the ink to colour them.  I then inked the edge of the ATC's with distress ink and stamped and embossed the sentiments.

I had some alcohol ink on Yupo left, and as I wanted to create curled leaves to place on the top this was perfect to use. I stamped and heat embossed them, quickly and carefully as Yupo paper has a plastic like quality and will shrink and mis shape when heated ( perfect for this project but not ideal if you want to achieve a flat image!) . To add dimension I adhered with 3D glue gel. 

Autumn is my favourite time of year , and this stamp set is just perfect for some seasonal creations.
