Visible Image Stamps & Stencils, Alcohol Inks, Distress Inks & Wow Ebony Embossing Powder.




Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, and time for me to share another creation I've made with some awesome Visible Image products.


I love the clean lines of this card, the stamp set I used was.......
Street Dance Boys, along with two stencils Grate-ful and 1983.

I started with a piece of Glossy white card stock, and some Alcohol Inks, dabbing the inks with a felt pad on a inking tool, this bit is quite exciting, as you never really know what you'll end up with, lol !!!!
I then used both my stencils, the 1983 first, blended through with some Salty Ocean Distress ink, then the same with the Grate-ful, but this time using Candid Apple, then dried them with my heat tool, wafting from side to side.
I stamped the dancers with a Versamark pad, and heat embossed with Wow Ebony Embossing Powder, I did the same with all the extra little stamps in the set. I then used my white pigment pen to draw around some of the images, to make them 'pop'. I stamped the sentiment onto white card, and heat embossed, and used Salty Ocean to tie it into the colour scheme.

Visible Image Stamps & Stencils, Clean Color Brush Pens, Gilding wax & Stickles.



Hi there,
It's Fabulous Friday, my day for sharing something I've created, using some awesome products from Visible Image.



On this project, I have used the fantastic Dark Hearts stencil, and a stamp from The Queen of Hearts stamp set.
I made a white card frame, using a die I have, painted it with black gesso, and used gilding wax to colour it.
I cut a piece of white card, to fit into the frame, and placed the stencil on it, using a palette knife, I smoothed some black metallic paste through it, and put it aside to dry. When it was set, using my watercolour pens, I coloured the hearts and crowns, and shaded the skulls, to make it come alive. I also used some Stickles on the crowns, to make them glittery.
On a small piece of red glitter card, I traced and fussy cut one heart from the stencil, ready to add to the ribbon.
I stamped the Queen onto the stencilled card, added some black ribbon, and stuck it into the frame, adding the small heart, and a couple of tails of ribbon, to finish it off.

Visible Image Stencils, Decoart Paints, Pentart Crackle Paste, Pentart Embossing Paste.




Hello my friends,

It's Fabulous Friday, and this week there has been spooky goings on in my craft room. As Halloween is looming, I've made a scary card using a couple of the awesome Visible Image Stencils, just to show that you can use a stencil for a foreground image.


The stencils I used for this card were......
Skull Shadow and Dark Hearts, and I used some of the words from You are not Alone stamp set.
I placed the Dark Hearts stencil, onto a piece of white card, and went through it with some black embossing paste using a palette knife, I removed the stencil, then added some sparkly black embossing powder to the wet paste, and heated it up using a heat tool, I added some colour to this, using a brush, and some Decoart liquid acrylics, making a watery wash, over the embossing. I then made drips of thick red paint, to look like blood, ohhhhh how gory !!!!


Taking the Skull Shadow stencil, and a piece of white card, I traced the main image, and fussy cut it. Using the Pentart Crackle, which is a two part crackle, I coated the skull with a thin layer of the primer, and dried with my heat tool, I then added a thick layer of the Crackle paste, and again dried it with my heat tool, the crackles are amazing.
I used more Decoart liquid acrylic paints, adding water for a light wash, and coloured thee skull, using red around the teeth. When it was dry, I shaped it, and added it to some black card with 3D glue Gel, then cut around the card, leaving a small border.


I heat embossed the sentiment onto black card, with red powder, but it didn't show up, dohhhhh, so I drew around the letters with a white pen (I don't like to waste anything, lol )



This last photo shows all the dimension, ohhhh and I found an eerie eye in my stash, and added it for a bit of drama !!!!!

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Oxide Inks, Versafine Ink and Stickles



Gosh, another week has flown by, and again it's Fabulous Friday, so my day for sharing a card I've created, using another superb stamp set by 'Visible Image'.

This week I'm showcasing the very awesome 'One kind Word' stamp set, 
I love it.


I created my background, using Mustard Seed and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink,  squishing the inks onto my ink mat, spritzed with water, then dipped my card into it a couple of times, drying it between dips. Taking a piece of copy paper, I masked the top part of the card, and with Salty Ocean Distress ink, and a blending tool, lightly coloured the lower part of the card.

On the top of the card, I stamped one of the sentiments randomly, using Ripe Persimmon Oxide ink.

On a separate piece of card, I stamped the Typewriter using Black Versafine ink, masking off the top line of the stamp, so I could make the area for words longer, I also stamped some hearts, and a sentiment, again in black ink and fussy cut them all, I curled the typewriter card at the top, around a paintbrush.

Before placing my cut typewriter onto the background, I stamped  the random letters stamp, onto the background using Salty Ocean. I then glued everything down with 3D glue gel, and added some stickles onto the hearts.
