Tutorial: ArtBook with Beautiful Soul stamp by VisibleImage

Have you seen the new Autumn stamp release by VisibleImage? I am in love with them, from the masculine ones to the sentiment sets  and one especially stole my heart: I got crazy for 'Beautiful Soul' because it is simply stunning, and my mind is buzzing with ideas how to use it.
I made a new spread in my beloved round book and in this post I show you also how to reverse a stamp:
Gessso lightly the book pages:
Stamp with Archival Ink the woman profile from 'Beautiful Soul' stamp set
Stamp it again on a piece of tissue paper: remember to tear the paper around the image not cutting with the scissor, so the edges will blend with the background.
Flip it over and adhere to the book page with matte gel medium, brushing the medium under and above the tissue paper
I didn't ink the stamp inside the woman's hair so I drewn some lines and lettering instead
Sponge Distress Inks or Oxides through the stencil Strobe, masking the woman
Add some journaling along the borders.

WOW!!! Che spettacolooo!!!! Favolosa pagina, questo timbro è davvero stupendo, me ne sono innamorata anche io!!!! Bellissimo come hai disegnato i capelli con le tue splendide scritte e il timbro rende proprio tanto su carta di libro e con lo stencil colorato!!!
Grazie mille per il trucco della carta velina con il gel medium, utilissimo!!!!
Sei sempre magica!
Un abbraccione!

Great tip for reversing an image. Adding your own lettering makes the stamps really versatile too xxx
