Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Distress Inks, Sweet Poppy Stencil paste & Stickles.



I'm back again, it's Fabulous Friday, and I'm here to share another bit of inspiration using some awesome products from 'Visible Image'.

Have you seen their new stamps and stencils, they are fantastic, and today's share is a card I made using 3 of the new Stencils and one of their new stamps.


The stencils I used were .....
and the stamp I used was a sentiment from the .....

I blended three colours of Distress Ink, onto a piece of card, ( Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry) then adding the 'Count Me In' stencil over the top, I blending through the stencil, using the same colours, but putting Pink over Yellow, blue over Pink etc.
I then used the inky drip bit of the 'Butterfly Ink' stencil, and blended through it with Blueprint Sketch, all around the edges of the card.
Next came the awesome 'Eye Contact' stencil, I placed this on top of the coloured background, secured it with masking tape, and using a spatula, added some 'Sweet Poppy Stencil' dimension paste through the stencil. When it was dry using some white gesso, I whitened up the eye, and added some Distress into the eye iris, and some stardust stickles over the top of the dry paste.
I used the 'Butterfly Ink' stencil again, for the tear drops, with some white Liquid Pearl. I stamped the sentiment using a dark blue ink, and fussy cut it.

I used my Oil Pastels to create the background, then stamped the lanterns 2 or 3 times with a grey Versafine ink pad, and coloured in using the pastels, I also stamped the lanterns twice onto a piece of white card, using a Black Versafine ink pad, coloured them in using some watercolour pens, and fussy cut them, adding them to the card with 3d Glue gel.

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Pebeo Dyna Paints, and Wow Embossing Powder.



It's Fabulous Friday, and my day to share some 'Visible Image' love. Today I am sharing my first project using the brand new Humming Bird stamp set called 'Life Is Beautiful.
Unfortunately, it was a very sunny day, so my photo's don't show the actual brightness of the colours.


The Stamp set and the Stencil I used on this project are.......
Life is Beautiful, and the stencil is Collision.


I used some lolly sticks as the base, and painted them with the Dyna paints, stamped the circle and lines stamp, then put the stencil over the top and added  some translucent paste. Meanwhile I stamped the awesome Hummingbird using Versamark onto some heat resistant acetate, and heat embossed using Black powder, fussy cut it, and added some Dyna paints onto the back of it, and attached it with 3D glue gel. I added a sentiment, and coloured some ribbon to hang it with.

Visible Image Stamps, Oxide Inks, Versafine Inks, Wow Embossing Powder & Stickles.



Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, the start of a Bank Holiday, and the weather forecast is good, so I hope you have something exciting planned.

Today I am sharing my first creation, made using an awesome new set of stamps, from 'Visible Image', I adore it.......
Check out the other awesome new stamp set plus all the yummy stencils too.


The new stamp set is called 'Into the Woods' and is available on re-order, with release date being 11th May, but I assure you, it will be worth the wait. I also used the inky script stamp, from 'Scripted Streets', which is in the background.

The background, was a piece of card that I had cleaned my brayer on, I'd been using some Oxide inks, it has some rather dark blue patches on, so I added white gesso, to tone it down a bit, and then some yellow and pink acrylic chalk paints with a palette knife.... perfect. I stamped the script, using Salty Ocean Oxide Ink, made a moon with some white gesso and a brush.


I stamped the rear row of trees, in a grey Versafine ink, stamped the next row in Purple Versafine, then used artistic licence for the hedge, with a couple of green inks, the main tree and the beautiful Owls I stamped and heat embossed with Black embossing powder. I then got my Stickles out, brown for the far trees, purple for the mid trees, and green and yellow for the hedge, I also added some god Stickles onto the wings of the Owls, I finished off with a stamped sentiment, onto a bit of white card, and coloured it to look like the background, and then using a white pigment pen, highlighted the tree.

You must leave your comments no later then midnight on Monday April 30th.




Here are my projects...... 
I've created them using some awesome 'Visible Image' stamps and stencils, with the aid of the fabulous 'MISTI' stamping platform.
I thought it would be nice to make a card, with a pressie bag and tag.


The Visible Image stamps sets I used were......
and the two stencils I used were....




Using the stencils and Distress Ink, I blended though the Geometric first followed by the Fibres,



I stamped the cracked glass, again with Distress Ink, using the Misti to line up my stamp.



Then I stamped and heat embossed the awesome eye with Black Embossing Powder.


Using the grid paper that comes with the Misti board, I lined up my card, slightly overlapping one side, and only inking the splats around the outer corner of the eye, I did this 4 times, using 4 ink colours, moving my card by half a grid each time, giving a sort of 3D look.




I then splattered some ink, mixed with water, using a fan brush.


On a separate piece of card, I heat embossed the eye, and the sentiment, and fussy cut.




I coloured the iris of my fussy cut eye, and the sentiment, with watercolour pens.



I blended around the edges of the card, and used a white pigment pen to emphasise some of  the cracked glass fragments.



I attached the fussy cut eye, which I'd first moulded with my fingers, to make it dome a little, then used the 3D glue gel to raise it too. I used Black Diamond and Stardust Stickles, to add sparkle to the eye, you could of course use some Glossy Accents instead.




Now the tag........
I cut a piece of card into a tag shape, punched a hole in it, and added a eyelet.



I heat embossed the eye as before, onto the tag, using Black Embossing Powder.



I stamped the eye onto a piece of sticky paper, and fussy cut for a mask, to protect the middle of the eye from ink.



I then repeated the stencil work, the same steps as used on the card, and again using the Misti, and the grid paper, positioning the tag to ink the splats at the outer corner, moving it by half a grid each time I stamped.


I coloured a piece of  Rayon Seam Binding, with the three ink colours, and some water, then added to the tag.



I added the same colours of glitter glue to the eye, as before.



 I cut a piece of card to fit the front of the white gift bag, and stamped, using Oxide Inks, the word 'Vision' from the sentiment, masking off the rest of the stamp, then spritzing with water to make it run a little.



Then used the stencils, as before, blended the edges, and glued it to the bag.


And lastly I added the tag.
