Visible Image & My Sweet Petunia Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hi everyone! Lydia here for a fun blog hop and collaboration with our friends at Visible Image.

This company has VERY cool, sort of modern, edgy stamp and stencil designs. I got this stencil from them that I just love.

For the first project today, I used the Stay Wild stamp set over an old Gel Press Print - I thought that fiery red background would be perfect for the wild horse breaking free. It's matted in both black and Lemon-Lime Twist on a white card base. The image and sentiment were stamped in Versafine Clair. The stencil in the background of my print is this one.

Then I switched to a pastel mode, with a Daniel Smith watercolor background on cold press watercolor paper. I used the Create It stamp set for that adorable little cat, with the Reason To Smile sentiment. Even though this is cold press paper, the MISTI and Nocturne Ink make the images crisp and perfect! 

We all know that cats create a reason to smile every day. :) I added the Like Magic Sequins, matted the image in black, and mounted on patterned paper on a white card base.

  50. Wow--great cards--love the stamps and the colors.

  51. Love the sentiment on the horse card, and that image would have been a hot mess without a Misti, I'm betting. I would never have considered a stamp with that much solid space before the Misti, just knowing I'd never get a good impression. The things we can do now!!! Great cards!
