I am thrilled to be sharing a project using one of the new stamp sets that will be released on Create and Craft on Sunday 14th February. This set is called ‘Shine Bright’ and is such a cool design!!
I have used the stamps to decorate a MDF ‘Monolith’….what’s that?, you say…..well today you will find out if you are a member of the Visible Image Facebook Group….
I base coated the MDF with gesso then added a couple of coats of DecoArt Copper paint. The MDF cogs and pipework (Calico Craft Parts) have been given an antique brass effect using Gold and Quinacridone Gold DecoArt paint. I added the verdigris effect with Patina Antiquing Cream.
I wanted the light bulb to stand up by itself and my acetate was too thin, so I stamped it onto Shrink Plastic (do NOT shrink it!!) and cut out. I coated the front with Glossy Accents and attached vellum to the back for the opalescent effect. Some silver foiling on the screw thread added to the realism. The sentiment was embossed in gold onto copper pearlescent card.
Thanks for stopping by today and don’t forget to watch the show on Create and Craft…. 6 new stamp sets will be launched ahead of the UK Trade Show where all 30 new designs will be available to retailers. It’s going to be an exciting year for Visible Image, some amazing new stamps – feature images, backgrounds, words, and much more….
