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


This is my last Visible Image Stamps post before Christmas, so I would like to wish you and your Families, a very Merry Christmas,
 and here's to a fantastic 2017.

I'm afraid I've struggled to get good photo's today, it's been so dark, but you'll get the idea. 

The stamps set I used on this card was the superb Dare to be Different, and the Sparkle sentiment from Rays of Light.

The background is blended Distress Inks, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Chipped Sapphire. I've then stamped around all the edges using Peacock Feathers. I dried the inky card, before stamping the lips in the middle and lipstick cases to the sides, and the sentiment at the bottom, using versamark, then heat embossed using a Wow silver sparkle powder. At this point, I mixed some pink acrylic paint with some water, and splattered (very messy but such good fun) !!

On a separate piece of card I stamped the Lips, using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, and cut them out, I coloured the middle of the mouth with a black pen, then added copious amounts of Pink glitter, then Glossy accents. 
It is far more sparkly in real life.

There's still time to get an entry into the 'Show & Tell', this month you will be in with a chance of winning a fabulous £40 voucher.

Huge Christmas hugs, Pauline xxxx

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.
