But, I just had to share another one of my creations using Visible Image stamps.
I created this for a special friend of mine who "doesn't do Christmas". So I always tend to make her a special something around this time of year.
This year, I decided to make her a over-sized tag and I chose vintage pinks for my colour palette.
Here is what I did...
I cut a over-sized tag shape out of watercolour paper and inked it using a brown and a pink Distress Inks concentrating making it darker around the edges.
I dry embossed the bottom half of the tag and inked it again.
I gathered a selection of different sized paper flowers and brushed them with the distress inks.
I added a thin piece of lace along the bottom and some green sprigs to the arrangement.
I added a wide pink satin ribbon around the center, threaded a dragonfly charm on to pink/white bakers twine and wrapped it over the top.
At the top half of the tag, I stamped the Visible Image Large Butterfly stamp twice using the same pink Distress Ink to create a very subtle effect.
I then stamped the VI 'thanks so much' sentiment stamp using Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the butterfly stamped image. I used Vintage Photo DI as black was far too harsh and I wanted to create a soft look to keep in with the vintage look.
I added a piece of crochet lace along the top edge and added a small flower arrangement opposite.
I threaded a butterfly charm on to pink organza ribbon and tied it at the top of the tag.
To finish I die cut a butterfly from parchment paper and added it to the satin ribbon around the center.
Anyone who knows me, knows I adore butterflies, any shape, pattern or size... and this stamp from Visible Image is no different. Its a great stamp will fantastic detail.
