Visible image Stamps, Brusho Crystal Paints, Wow Embossing powders Distress Inks.

Hello again,

It's Fabulous Friday, so my turn to share a card I've created using some super new Visible Image Stamps. I made this card for my fabulous Fella, on the Anniversary of our first date together 14 years ago.

The stamps I've used are........
Have I Told You, Heart Inkognito, the heart with arrow from the Cupid Valentine Set, and the small heart from Harley Jester Set.
For the inside of the card ........... Large heart from the Harley Jester Set, and All My Tomorrows.

The background is Brusho's sprinkled onto the card, and spritzed with water, until I got the look I wanted. The Inkognito heart was stamped with Versamark, and heat embossed with a red glitter embossing powder, I then stamped the Arrow heart, again with Versamark, on top of the red glitter heart, and heat embossed with white powder. I used a sunburst stencil to make the red lines, and I stamped the tiny heart randomly with Barn Door Distress ink, and the stamped the spatty bit of the Inkognito heart, around the edges of the card, again with Bard Door. To finish off, I coloured a piece of card with Barn Door, dried it, and stamped the 'Have I Told You' in Versamark, and heat embossed with white powder.

Visible Image Stamps, Brusho Crystal Paints, Black Versafine, Distress Ink, & Stickles.

Hi my Crafty Friends, I'm here again to share another card using some of the 'must have' stamps from Visible Image.

The stamps I've used on this card are.......
Winter TreeTall GrassGood Luck Cat Set and 'Trust Your Instincts' from the Express Yourself No Regrets Set.

I made the background using Brusho's, throwing lots of lovely colours at it, as I wanted it to be atmospheric. Once it was dry, I stamped the pussy, Tree, grass and sentiment in Black Versafine, and made some ground with a bit of Distress ink. To finish I added some highlights with a white pen, and of course some Stickles, for a bit of sparkle.

Visible Image Stamps, Brusho Crystal Paints, Tim Holtz Distress inks, Versafine ink.

Hello my crafty friends,

I hope none of you are suffering too much from the Winter weather we have been having of late, it's just been cold and dark here in Warwick, with a tiny bit of Sun occasionally.

Today I'd like to share a card I've made using some fabulous 

I have used...... Take Risks, from the Bee Happy Set, one of the fab new set's in the Express Yourself range, Vintage CarBronte Script, Retro Dots Background, and the grungy edge stamp from the Jake Skates Set.

I started with the background, a piece of water colour paper, on which I sprinkled Brusho paints, and spritzed with water, until I had the effect I wanted. When it was dry, I stamped the Bronte script and the Retro Dots, using Distress inks, then using Versafine Black ink, I stamped the Vintage Car, the sentiment and the edging. Using thick household bleach and a small paintbrush, I beached all the bits I wanted white on the car and the words, and used a white pen to highlight the sentiment, Simplezzzzzz !!!!

Visible Image Stamps, Brusho Crystal Paints, Distress inks, Liquid Pearls & Stickles.

Hi there,

We are well and truly into the New Year now and it's another Fabulous Friday, so today I'd like to share a card I've made using some 

The stamps I've used on this creation are......
Time after Time set (such a versatile set, with loads of stamps for your money),
 and 'Every Day is a second Chance' from the 'Make me Smile set', in the new Express Yourself range.

I used Brusho's for the background, over stamping with some of the stamps from the 'Time after Time' set, and Distress inks. I stamped the watch and wings with Black Versafine.

 I used thick bleach to whiten them, distressed the watch face, and added Rock Candy Crackle paint, I used different coloured Liquid pearls on the wings. I then stamped the sentiment in Black Versafine, and added highlights using a white pigment pen. and of course my work wouldn't be complete without a bit of bling, so on went the Stickles !!!!!
