Let’s Jump with Creative Jumpstart

Let’s Jump with Creative Jumpstart

Welcome to 2019 and an entire year of excitement and creativity. January is starting off with a great treat – Creative Jumpstart, this year with the theme “My Home is My Castle”. The Creative Squad jumps with all the 31 artists (and hopefully you?) and shares their interpretation of the theme. My project is a set of wings that has been laying around for a while now. I thought that it is perfect for my next home decor piece, so I grabbed it and stared at the wings for a while. I rarely work in a size like that and …

Doing my Thing – Thank You Cards with n*studio

Doing my Thing - Ink Smooshed Thank You Cards with n*studio

Aren’t we all good in “doin’ our thing”? Perfect theme, if you ask me. The problem was that I couldn’t decide which of my favorite techniques to show you… mono printing, layering, something snarky…? So many options. At the end, I decided to go with a variety of techniques using watercolor inks (Distress Inks, etc). I created a few “Thank You” cards as I needed them anyway 😉 In addition, I love to create videos, so here is my “doin’ my thing” video for the thank you cards that I made. Nathalie’s foam and rubber stamps were perfect to add …

Simon Says Stamps Stamptember

Hi and welcome to Stamptember – woohoo! This is the first time I’m celebrating with Simon Says and I’m super excited to share two cards with you that I made with one of their new background stamps. For those of you who are coming from the big party over on the Simon Says blog – welcome 🙂 – my name is Josefine and I’m a mixed media artist who loves the messy way of crafting. Although these cards look a little more clean and simple compared to what I usually do, I had inky fingers afterwards – and that’s all …

Yummy texture with Emerald Creek Baked Texture, Distress Oxide and monoprinting

Hi everyone, I had a lot of fun playing with the new Distress Oxide colors and the ranger Gel Plates. I experimented with the Oxides and how they act for mono printing. In addition, I finally played with the new Baked Texture embossing powders from Emerald Creek and Seth Apter again to create some yummy texture on my tags. You can see all the details in my video, how the ink behaves, how gorgeous the Baked Textures are and most of all, how much fun everyone can have with just playing around 😉 I hope you enjoyed my little experiment …

Creating bright ATCs with Distress Oxides and Visible Image

Creating bright ATCs with Distress Oxides and Visible Image

Hello and welcome to a new post for Visible Image. I was in the mood for something bright, something very bright 😉 Because I haven’t used my Distress Oxide in a while, I decided to create a few bright ATCs using them. I started with a 3 1/2 x 9 inch piece of water color paper and smeared the Oxides directly onto the paper. Then I spritzed water on top, let the inks move and mix and heat set it. Next up, I used the smooshing technique where I put the ink directly onto my craft mat, spritzed some water …

My Home is my Castle for Nathalie Kalbach

My Home is my Castle for Nathalie Kalbach

Hi and welcome back to a new project for Nathalie Kalbach’s Creative Squad. I’m playing with Nathalie’s new stamps My Home is my Castle. Have you seen them yet? I was in the mood for some Distress Oxide fun, so I grabbed three tags and started coloring them in. My favorite technique is ink smooshing. For that I used three colors of Distress Oxide from the same color family and smooshed one after another onto my craft mat. Then I spritzed a little water on top and dragged the tag through the ink, one color at the time. Between every …
