Visible Image Stamps, Wow Embossing Powder, Distress Inks & Stickles.


I'm back with my usual weekly DT inspiration for 'Visible Image', using a couple of awesome stamp sets, Where Dreams Take You  and Live Life Now.

I stamped the fabulous eye, using Versamark, and heat embossed it using a Wow Red powder, yummy. I stamped the eye again with black ink, onto a sticky note, and fussy cut it out, I placed this mask over the embossed eye, and coloured the background using Distress Inks. I then stamped the 'Go where your Dreams take you', again using Distress ink. 

 I stamped the small butterflies with Versamark, and heat embossed them with the red powder, I then took the mask off, and coloured the Iris, and put a bit of shading into the corner of the eye. The 'Vision' sentiment was stamped with Versamark, onto a separate piece of card, and again heat embossed using the Red powder, and fussy cut.
I used Stickles, to bling up the butterflies, and to put a twinkle in the eye.

Visible Image Stamps, Lindy Stamp Gang 'Starburst' Spay inks, Wow EP, Distress Inks & Stickles.


I hope you are all well, and as there has been rather a lot of rain lately, I thought that my 'Visible Image Stamps' inspiration this week, should emulate the weather, lol, so I used their awesome 'Sparkle in the Rain' stamp set.

I started off with a piece of A4 white card, and gave it a spray with a Purple and a Lemon 'Starbust' spray ink, from Lindy's Stamp Gang, super vibrant colours which are full of lovely mica, making a fabulous glimmer. I then cut my card, to fit a 6" card blank. I used the rain stamp and the puddle stamp with some versamark, and heat embossed with some 'Sparkling Snow' powder, by Wow.
On some heat resistant acetate, using Versamark, some Black Wow Embossing powder, and the Lady Stamp, I heat embossed, and fussy cut it, adding yellow Stickles to her Umbrella and her boots.

On some more white card, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, fussy cut it, then coloured it with some Distress Inks.

Still a couple of weeks to enter the 'Show & tell', for a chance to win a £25 voucher, to spend on luscious new Visible Image goodies.
Take a peek in the Visible Image Group too, there is daily inspiration from the DT, and members too......HERE.

Visible Image Stamps, Wow Embossing powder, Dylusions Acrylic paints, Distress Inks & Wink of Stella pen.


I'm back again, to share another creation using some more awesome
I demonstrated this card, whilst on Create & Craft USA TV, so I don't think the UK saw it, but sorry if you have.

The stamp sets I used for this card were.....
the moths, light-bulb and sentiment are from the Glimmer of Light set, and the background circles are from the Ripple Effect set.

This card is very easy to achieve, and also a lot of fun, but it can get a bit messy, lol !!!

Starting with a piece of Black card, I swiped over it with an anti-static bag, then stamped the large Ripple effect stamp, using Versamark, then I heat embossed it using a Wow white powder.
Then the fun bit, using a paint brush I flicked white acrylic paint, over the whole card, and then did it again using some yellow acrylic paint, I left this to dry naturally.
On a separate piece of pale yellow card, I stamped the light-bulb, the sentiment, and fussy cut them, and on a piece of white card, using different coloured Distress inks, I stamped 10 or so small moths, and fussy cut these out too.
I put the card together as above, and to finish off I used a clear Wink Of Stella pen to give the moths a shimmer.
