Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Wow Embossing powder, Stickles & Glitter.


I hope you have all survived the wrath of 'Doris' yesterday, 
as one of my friends commented, 
if we can find out where she lives, we can issue her with all the claim forms for  the damage she caused, whilst flying around on her broomstick !!!!

I've used another of those awesome new 'Visible Image' Stamp sets for my share for this week, the beautiful 'Born to Perform' set.

I have kept it quite plain, as I wanted the ballerina to really stand out, so I stamped the image using Versamark, and heat embossed it using black embossing powder, then just using a couple of colours of Distress ink, I blended them around her. I added the stars and the sentiments, again heat embossing with black.

Then came the fun bit, blinging it up, lol..... Stardust Stickles inside the stars, and on top of the Tutu, whilst the Stickles are still wet, I added soome different coloured glitters.

It's fabulous Friday again, and my turn to share a creation using some if the awesome new stamp sets from Visible Image Stamps.
I've used a couple of sets on this card......

I am totally in love with the Curios Cats set, such a gorgeous face..... anyway, I decided to make a scene background, using Distress Inks, I blended the ink, added a couple of trees from the 'Create It' set, and used the ends of the whiskers for the grass. I stamped the two small cats in the foreground, using Black Versafine, then stamped the pussy's face and the sentiment with Versamark, and heat embossed using Black Glint Embossing powder by Wow.
I bleached out the eyes and nose, and coloured them with Distress inks.
Lastly I added a bit of contour to the face, using a pencil.

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Wow EP, and Stickles.

Hi there,

Another week has passed, does it go quickly or is it just me, lol !!!! 
It's Fabulous Friday, and I'm here again to share a card I've made using some of the awesome new Stamp sets available from 'Visible Image', they really are fresh and exciting.

So today I'm sharing a card made using......
Face It, the sentiment is from Own It, the stars are from Born to Perform, and the paw print is from Curious Cats.

I created the background using Distress Inks, stamping the ink pad onto my glass mat, one colour at a time, spritzing with a little water, then gently tapping the card into the mixture, then drying it. I continued doing this with as many colours as I wanted, until I'd achieved a background I was happy with.
After drying it, I stamped the face masking off one eye, using Versamark, then heat embossing with Wow Black glint embossing powder. Then I stamped one closed eye, lining it up, and also heat embossing it.

I then stamped the other elements, except for the paw print, again using Versamark, and heat embossing with the Black Glint powder. The paw print was stamped using Wilted Violet Distress Ink, I also used this ink with a paintbrush for the eye liner, and the lips. To finish off I used Lilac Stickles for the eyes, and Stardust Stickles on the stars and lips.

I hope all you lovely people who pre-ordered these super new stamps,
 have got them now or you very soon will,

Hi there,

Have you seen the fantastic brand new Stamp designs from Visible Image,
 I was so excited when some of them popped through my letter box, and I've had so much fun creating with them too, 
they are ready to pre-order now, and will be dispatched on February 13th,
 so....... today I am going to share a card made using 
the awesome Curious Cats set.

I used Brusho's in Black and Gamboge, spritzing the card with water first, the a gentle sprinkle of the Brusho's. I then stamped the beautiful Cat's face stamp with Versamark, added the Wow Black Glint Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I used household bleach to whiten the eyes and the nose, then coloured them with Blue and Gamboge for the eye's, and Gamboge for the nose.
I then stamped the sentiment, again with Versamark, masking off some of the letters, to get the Purr bit, and heat embossed using White EP.

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, White Gesso, Wow Embossing Powder, Crackle Accents and Stickles.

Hi again,

It's Fabulous Friday, so my day to share some Visible Image Love. It's an exciting day tomorrow 28th January, because all the new stamp designs can be pre-ordered, check them out HERE.

 This week, I used these stamp sets on my project.........


I stamped the skull onto a piece of white card, using Versamark, and heat embossed it with Black Powder, then masked it using Drawing gum.
I blended Distress inks over the whole card, (Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed), this combination was a little too vivid on this occasion, so I toned it down with a gesso wash (white gesso and water). 
When it was dry, I stamped the Ink Splats randomly, using Mustard Seed then Picked Raspberry, I also edged the card using Blueprint sketch.
I stamped the stem (from the Imperfection is beauty set), around the edges, again using Blueprint sketch, and stamped the sentiment with Black Versafine.
 I then removed the drawing gum. 

I used Crackle Accents on the skull, just in the white areas, and left to dry.
I made three flowers, with the sideways facing skulls, stamping onto copy paper using a Kaleidercolor ink pad, I shaped the 'petals' with a ball tool, then glued the 'petals' together at the narrow end, added a black gem to the centre's, and covered them with Black Stickles, I also used some Stardust Stickles around the edges of the finished flowers.
I thought that was it, but on the spur of the moment, I added a skeleton to the right of the image, stamped in Antique Linen Distress Ink, and highlighted with a white pen, and half a skeleton to the left. There finished !!!!

Visible Image Stamps, Brusho's, Wow Embossing Powders, Imagination Crafts Sparkle Gel & Stickles.

Hello again,

It's Fabulous Friday, and I'm here to share a creation I've made, using some fantastic Visible Image Stamps.

The stamps I used are......

I started with some white Water colour card, and sprinkled various colours of Brusho's randomly on to it, then spritzed with water ( the more water you add, the more the colours will run into each other, and the paler they become). I dried it with my heat tool, (Brusho's become permanent when dry) I then repeated the application.
When it was dry, I stamped the two figures in the foreground, using Versamark, and heat embossed them using Black Glint Embossing powder. I then made masks out of a couple of post-it notes, and covered the figures, so's I could stamp the Drummer behind them, he was heat embossed using Black powder.

Whilst the masks were still in place, I put a stencil on top, and added some Diamond Sparkle Medium through it, using a palette knife, this looks like laser lights on the stage.
 Using some silver paint and a white pen, I added all the highlights to the 'Band', to give them some perspective. The sentiment was added using Versamark and some Red Glitter Embossing Powder.
To finish off, I 'grounded' the Band, using some red Distress Ink, stamped some little stars in Black Versafine, and then added Stardust Stickles wherever I fancied !!!!!
