'Dare to Swim' by Elisa Ablett - Visible Image

Hi everyone,

Elisa here from the design team for Visible Image with my next share for the month. 

I wanted to showcase just how versatile the awesome stamps at Visible Image are by creating a multi dimensional mixed media layout featuring 'Dare to Swim' and 'The Ripple Effect' stamp sets.

To start with I stamped on Acetate with black Staz On Ink and fussy cut the images out and set them aside while I created my background.

The background colours and texture is created with Distress Ink Oxides, Distress stains and ART -C water brush pen. 

I stamped 'The Ripple Effect' stamp on the background using the distress ink oxide ink pads masking half of the stamp off to create a half circle pattern. When you stamp them together they look like a wave!

Add some more stamping in black using the smaller bubble stamps from the Ripple Effect set across your page along with the fish from Dare to Swim.

Here are some close ups of the finer details!

  1. love this and their stamps!!! what did you do to create the big outside circle!!

    1. Hi Diana, thank you, Visible Image have a fantastic range of stamps and now stencils as well. The outside circle was created using an entree plate and tracing around it with a marker and moving the circle a fraction from side to side, adding grungy squiggles and crosses at the end! cheap and easy technique :-)
