Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks and Stickles.

Hi there again,

I'm back to share 4 Seasonal tags I've created, using some fabulous

On all the tags I used 2 stamps....... 'Winter Tree' and 'Tall Grass', and just changed the sentiment.

The sentiment on the Winter tag is from the ....... 'Sparkle at Christmas' set.
On the Spring tag it's.......'Memories' from the 'Make me Smile' set.
On the Summer tag it's....... 'Dream' from the 'Imagine, Dream, Inspire' set.
The last one is the Autumn tag and the sentiment is....... 'Colours of the Wind'.

I blended Distress Inks for the background of each tag, and stamped the Tree and the sentiments in Black Versafine ink, the grass was stamped in Distress inks. I added blossom using acrylic paints, the winter tag is achieved using a 'dries white glue' and glitter for the snow, and I used stickles on all the tags for the finishing touch.





The 'Show & Tell' is well under way, why don't you join in, make a project using only 'Visible Image Stamps', for a chance to win some stamps from the website.

Take a look at the 'Visible Image Facebook group', where you can see the news of forthcoming shows, competitions, and lots of other things.

Thanks for popping by,

Hugs, Pauline xxxxx
