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

Hi there,

My last Visible Image post for a couple of weeks, I am going on a well earned seaside holiday.

So here's today's Visible Image Stamps post, using the stamp I affectionately call the 'Rain Lady' !!!! Which in fact is really named

This is another card that I've used at a couple of my Workshops, using some Distress Inks to make a watery background, and some heat embossing to make the image pop.

And to finish off, I added some stickles of course !!!!!

Lavinia Stamps, Archival Inks, and Stickles.

Hi there,

I'm a little late in posting, as the new Lavinia Stamps'Creative Challenge', started last week, the theme this month is......
'Make Something for a Friend'. It is now a Facebook based Challenge, so no need to post to a blog.

Here is my DT inspiration......

In my crafty stash, I had this 6" x 4"  paper-mache wall hanging, in my crafty stash, which has been crying out for some sort of decoration for ages, so I used some yummy Lavinia Stamps on it.

A good coat of gesso was the base, then I blended my inks over it, and stamped using Black Archival ink.

I used pens, Stickles and paint for the details, and also gave the Fairy a set of Acetate wings.

The little 3" x 4" gift card was very easily achieved, with a little blending, and a bit of stamping, and of course some stickles, and some pen work around the edges.

And hey presto, 'Something for a Friend'.

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

Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, and my turn to share a card made using a couple of awesome Visible Image stamp sets.

The sets I used were.....Shine Bright and How Fragile we are.

I used a stencil with some embossing paste first, and when it was dry, I added some colourful Distress inks, I stamped the shattered stamp from the Fragile set, then using a different stencil, I spritzed water through it. I added some gilding wax to the embossed bits.
Using the light bulb stamp, I stamped onto Heat resistant Acetate, using Versamark, and heat embossed using Black powder. I then did the same with the sentiment.

I attached them both to the card using Glue gel.

A few places for you to visit ..........
