Visible Image "Hope" Card

Sharing another card, this time featuring Visible Image stencils and stamps. 

I started this card using three shades of Elements Inks (Sahara, Greensleeves and Bermuda) on a glass mat, spritzing with water then swooshing a piece of white card through the ink.  I added extra colour in a few areas to make it a little stronger, by repeating the process.  I then used a heat gun to dry the surface.

Once dry, I used the Visible Image "Strobes" stencil with "Peat Moss" Archival Ink. I then used "Library Green" Archival Ink through the Visible Image "Super Nova" stencil.  I used "Cornflower Blue" Archival Ink through the "Halftone" stencil ina couple of areas around the edge of the card.

Using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink, I stamped the Visible Image "Fibonacci" image.

I ran an anti-static bag over the surface of the card, before stamping the word "Hope" (from the Visible Image Peace, Love and Hope stamp set) in Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink.  I then coated the stamped word in Wow! clear embossing powder and heat set.

Using the same ink and the edge of the large stamp from the Visible Image "Stay Wild" stamp set, I repeated the process around the edge of the card.

I used a white pastel pencil to lighten a couple of areas.  Addeing touches of yellow Posca Pen, White Gel Pen and a shimmer of gold using a gel pen.  I then mounted it on to a piece of white card.


  1. Perfectly designed Sam , great colours and the embossing is a great finish here x

  2. This looks fabulous and I don't know how you come up with such clever designs as everything seems so well thought out, and fits together brilliantly Sam. x
