Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Distress Inks & Versafine Clair Inks.


Hi there,
It's Fabulous Friday, so my day to share something I've created with some awesome 'Visible Image' products, I have wanted to put a crown on a skull for some time now, lol, I finally got around to it ......


The 'Visible Image' stamps I used were.....

I started off with an old piece of printed paper, which was destined for the bin, but I thought that was a bit wasteful, so I  stamped the large skull, the full skeleton and one of the sideways facing skulls, using Versafine Clair inks in 'Bluebelle', and 'Charming Pink', I also made masks for them using some post-it notes. Putting the masks in place I lightly blended my Distress inks, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry, randomly over it, then stamped the Elemental stamp with Versafine Clair 'Cheerful' I put the stencil on top and blended through it with Salty Ocean, the drips were achieved by mixing Distress Inks with water, and dripping down with a pipette. 


I added the 'Voices in your head' sentiment, and added a few star bursts from the 'Rays of Light' set. I added a bit of shading before I removed the masks. On a piece of white card, I stamped and fussy cut the 'Queen' sentiment, I also stamped the crown, masked it, and stamped the skull on top, fussy cut and coloured the crown.

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Distress Inks & Versafine Clair Inks.




Hello there, 

It's Fabulous Friday and I hope you are all well. 
You may know, that the proprietors of 'Visible Image', (Helen and Mark Alexander), had their 3rd wedding Anniversary this week, this is the card I made for them, using some of their awesome stamps and stencils.


The stamps I used were In your HandsAlphabetical, and Scripted Streets,
and the stencils I used were  Collision and Stars & Stripes.

I started the background using some Distress Ink re-inkers, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, and Picked Raspberry, putting a couple of drops onto my mat, one colour at a time, spritzing with a little water, then gently dipping the white card into it, until I had achieved the colours I wanted. I then stamped randomly with the Script stamp, using some Blue Versamark Clair ink, on top of this I placed the Collision Stencil, and randomly blended through it with a light layer of Salty Ocean Distress ink, then some Mustard Seed in other places.

  
Using just the Stars of the 'Stars and Stripes' Stencil, with a palette knife, I added some translucent embossing paste, adding stars to the whole of the background, when it was dry, I dabbed some silver holographic gilding flake, so it stuck in places.
On a separate piece of white card, I stamped the hands, one using a combination of Summertime and Charming Pink, and on the other a combination of Warm Breeze and Paradise ( all Versafine Clair Inks ) and fussy cut them, gluing them to some black card, and fussy cutting again. I stamped the sentiment with Black ink, and again fussy cut. I stamped the 'Happy anniversary' sentiment, using the incredibly useful 'Alphabetical stamp set'.
To finish off, I adhered all the elements to the background using 3D glue gel, and added some eyelashes with a pen to the pink hand, and Glossy Accents to both eyes.

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Distress & Oxide Inks, Kuretake Clean Colour pens & Glossy Accents




Hello,

It's fabulous Friday again, and time for me to share some more 'Visible Image' Wonderland projects. This week it's the turn of  


I also used the 'Count Me In' stencil in the background, and I used Candid Apple Distress ink through it. I die cut a circle, and blended it with Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch distress inks, then used the number stamps in the set, and stamped randomly with black Versafine ink, then added the Tick Tock words.
I stamped and coloured the fabulous Rabbit ( my fave character ), on a piece of stamping card, coloured him in with Zigg Clean Colour pens, and fussy cut him. I added him to the card, using 3D glue gel, for dimension, and stamped and cut out the sentiment, I used Glossy Accents in places to make him pop.


On the background for the Mad Hatter, I blended some Twisted Citron Distress Ink onto a piece of card, then placed the 'Strobes' stencil on, and blended through it with Picked Raspberry. I then stamped with the 'Ha Ha' and some Wilted Violet Oxide Ink. Again I stamped and coloured the images as before, and fussy cut, using 3D Glue Gel to raise him off the card.

Hello there,

It's Fabulous Friday, so time for some more awesome 'Visible Image' Wonderland characters. Today it's the turn of TweedleDum and TweedleDee, and The Cheshire Cat.


The background for the Twins was created using Oxide Inks. The images were stamped with Versafine black ink and  coloured them with watercolour brush pens, I added some glossy accents on the buttons and shoes, fussy cut them, and added them to the card with 3D glue gel, to give dimension.



As well as The Cheshire cat, I used the superb 'Count me in' stencil. I used Distress ink through the stencil, then stamped the fish, scratch marks and sentiment with Versafine black ink. I stamped the Cat onto a separate piece of card, coloured him in and fussy cut him, again I used 3D glue gel, to raise him off the background.

Lavinia Fairy Dream Catcher.



Hi there,

Have you seen the newest product in 'Lavinia's' ever growing range, it's a beautiful MDF 'Fairy Dream Catcher', I was lucky enough to get my hands on one, plus some of the gorgeous 'Tassles', and had a go......



It was very easy to make, I used some Imagination Craft Starlight paints to colour the MDF, and then just added a few beads onto the tassles, don't you just love it, there are various designs to choose from, and would make a beautiful keepsake, or a present for someone you love.



I also used the fabulous Feather stamp, on the MDF feathers that are in the kit.
