Visible Image Stamps, Distress Oxide Inks, Wow Embossing powders, and Heat resistant acetate.




Hi there,

I'm here again, it's Fabulous Friday, for some more Visible Image fun, a card I've made using some of their awesome stamps.


The stamps I used were.....

The back ground was achieved, using some Oxide inks, putting the ink onto my mat, spritzing with water, then gently placing the card on top.
I then stamped the doorway, the spiral clock, and the two words from 'Ahead of our time', again using Oxide inks.
I cut a piece of heat resistant acetate, the same size as my background card, using Versamark, I stamped the cracked glass from 'How Fragile', and used silver embossing powder, and heated, I then cut out the centre crack of the acetate On a smaller piece of acetate, I stamped the birds, and heat embossed with Black EP, and fussy cut.
 On a separate piece of card, I stamped the two people, using Versamark, heat embossed with Black powder, and fussy cut them, yes I know, I'm mad, lol !!!!
I used black card for the sentiment, again heat embossing with Silver EP.


Using Glue, I adhered the lady to the backing card, then raised the acetate with a good dollop of 3D glue gel, and positioned on the card, using some brads with the legs cut off, I added them to hide the glue in each corner. I positioned the birds so's the are flying out of the hole in the glass, and put the man, and the sentiment, on the outside of the acetate.

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Decoart Fluid Acrylics, Pebeo Dyna Paints & Wow Embossing Powders.




Hello, and Happy New Year, 
I hope you all have a tremendous Christmas, mine was quiet and relaxed, with a little bit of messy crafting.

So I'm back to kick off 2019, with a mixed media project I've made, using some awesome Visible Image products available. The grey board heart was from my stash.


The stamps I used on this heart were........
The large circles from Shape it up, the small circles from The Ripple Effect, the Mushroom from The Caterpillar, the moth and the light bulbs from Glimmer of Light, and the sentiment from Shining Bright. The stencil I used was Distorted Chess.


 I used some Decoart fluid acrylic paint and some Dyna acrylic paints on the heart, building up the background, and then stamping with some of the background stamps, then put the stencil on the top, and went through with gold paste. Then using Blue/Black Pebeo Dyna paint, I covered the gold paste, but rubbing back some of it to allow the gold to shine through.
I stamped the mushroom onto white card, also the light bulbs, fussy cut them, then coloured them all, using watercolour pens.


I stamped the moth onto heat resistant acetate using Versamark, then used Wow Black embossing powder. I coloured the moth on the reverse side, again using the Pebeo Dyna paints, and fussy cut. On a piece of black card, I coated it with the Pebeo Blue/Black paint, then chose the words I wanted to use, stamped them in Versamark, and heat embossed using Wow Florescent Blue.

Visible Image Stamps, Izink Spay inks, Wow Embossing Powders, and Stickles.



Hi there,

Another week has flown by, these dark afternoons make the day's seem so short, but hey, it's nearly Christmas......
So, it's Fabulous Friday again, and here's one of my 'Visible Image' creations, from some time ago. I was lucky enough to be asked by Helen ( aka Mrs Visible Image) to create something for the October issue of The Craft Stamper, a mixed media piece, using the stunning 'Somewhere in Time' stamp set, the 'Count me In' Stencil and the 'Strobes' Stencil.


As I made this back in the heat of the Summer, and I can't remember what I actually used, dohhh, so I have photographed the write up, for you to see......

Visible Image Stamps, Decoart Liquid Acrylic Paint, Distress Inks, Versafine Black ink & Stickles.



Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, so time for me to share a card I've made using some of the awesome products from 'Visible Image'.
So, I've made a card that could be sent to a loved one, someone that needs a little boost from a friend, or it could even be sent as a Christmas card.


The stamp set I used was .......

My background was made using some Decoart liquid acrylic paint, applied with a spatula, onto white card, the paint is very highly pigmented, so small amounts go a long way, I used Red, Pink and Orange. I used Wilted Violet Distress ink to stamp the background letters, the hearts and also blended the bottom too.


On a separate piece of white card, I stamped the typewriter using Black 
Versafine, masking the top line of the stamp ( the paper coming out of the typewriter ) to make the roll of paper longer, I then fussy cut it 
I stamped the word Hello, with black ink and some hearts in Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, onto the typing paper. I also  stamped the sentiment onto white card, and fussy cut. To make the typewriter jump off the card, I raised it with 3D Glue gel. To finish off, I added Stardust stickles to all the hearts.

Visible Image Stamps & Stencils, White Gesso, Izink Glitter Paste, Wow Embossing powder & Clean Color Brush pens.




Hi there,

I hope this post finds you well, and keeping warm, Winter is definitely here.

So, it's Fabulous Friday again, time for me to share a card I've created, using some of the fantastic products available from 'Visible Image', and as the 'Show and Tell' theme for November is Sparkle, I think this one passes !!! 

I do love a good stencil, and the one I've used here, Butterfly Ink, is superb.



The stamps I used on this card were.......
The Butterfly from 'Own kind of Beautiful',
circle and square background stamps from 'Shape it Up',
 and the sentiment is from the 'Voices in your Head' set.

My background was a piece of white card, onto which I had randomly stamped and coloured the butterflies, but I felt it was far too bold, so I put a coat of white gesso over the top, then blended some Distress Inks on top. 
I then put the stencil on the dry background, and using my palette knife pasted through it with some glitter paste, I lifted the stencil, washed it, and when the paste was dry, I popped the stencil back on and added a second coat of paste.
When it was all dry, I stamped all the circles randomly with Versamark, and heat embossed with White powder, and stamped the squares with black Versafine.
I coloured all the circles and squares with watercolour brush pens.


On a separate piece of white card, I stamped the sentiment in black Versafine, fussy cut, and again coloured in some of the letters with watercolour pens.
