Visible Image Stamps & Stencils, Distress Inks, Wow Embossing Powder & Versafine Ink.



Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, and I'm here again,
 to share some Visible Image love, and as the Visible Image challenge this month is 'Colours of Autumn', I chose to use these orangy colours.


The stamp sets I've used in this card are......
The gorgeous Daydreamer, along with part of the awesome You are not alone.
I thought they would go together rather well, and send out a powerful message from the heart, that no one is alone........
 I also used the dotty part of the Two Tone stencil.

My background was created using some Distress Inks, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, and Spiced Marmalade. I put them onto my craft mat, one by one, lightest to darkest, spritzed some water on them and pulled my card through, and dry. If there are any white spaces left, add some extra colour with a blending tool. To this background, I added the Stencil, and blended through with Picked Raspberry, then I added the circles (that are in the 'You are not alone' set), using black ink.
On a piece of black card, I stamped the sentiments with Versamark, and heat embossed them with White powder, and fussy cut. Onto white card I stamped the girl using Red ink, and the arm using Black ink, and fussy cut them too. With a black pen, I low-lighted some of the details on the girl, to give her some definition.
After putting the card together, and adding all the components, using a white pen, I highlighted all the circles, and added a star of light between the girl and the hand.

Visible Image Stamps & Stencils, Distress Inks, Versafine Grey & Black Ink pads, Gold & White Pens & Glitter.




Hi There,

It's Fabulous Friday, so my day for sharing a project I've made using some awesome 'Visible Image' products.

On this card I've used one of the fantastic brand new Stamp sets, along with a couple of superb stencils.


The background is achieved by blending Distress Inks, Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean. On the top part I placed the 'Collision Stencil', and blended through with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, and on the bottom part, I used the 'Distorted Chess' stencil, and blended through with Blueprint Sketch Distress ink.
I stamped 2 of the three dancers in the 'Hip Hop Girls' stamp set, using Versafine Smokey Grey ink, and the third dancer I stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I made some shadows using the Blueprint Sketch ink, to ground the girls, then with a gold pen I added some details to the girls, and highlighted around them with a white pen. Using a quickie glue pen, I highlighted the top stencil lines, and added glitter to it. To finish off, I added Black glitter to the front dancer, and stamped and fussy cut the sentiments.

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Dylusion Ink sprays, Distress Inks, Versafine Ink, Clean colour pens and glitter.



Hello,

It's Fabulous Friday, so time for me to share a card I've made using some awesome Visible Image products.
This week, I've used another of the brand new stamp sets, along with a new 'must have' stencil.



My background was achieved using Ink Sprays on Shaving foam, I made a circular design, before taking my print. When it was dry, I stamped the hands from the 'You are not Alone' stamp set, using a Versafine Black Ink pad, I decided that they did'nt show up enough, so I stamped them again onto a piece of white card, coloured them using Clean Color watercolour brush pens, and fussy cut them.


Before adding the cut out hands to my background, I stamped the fabulous circles, making sure the smaller one contained the ends of the fingers. I took the sentiments one by one, and gently bent them on my stamping block, to coincide with the circle marks (made by the shaving foam), and stamped them in Black, highlighting them with a white pen. I felt the two opposite corners needed something, so I used dotty side of the very useful new stencil called 'Two Tone', and blended through it with pink and yellow Distress Inks. The final touch was to add the hand with Pinflair 3D glue gel, and added some glitter to the circles in the middle.

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Distress Inks, & Versafine Black Ink.




Hello,

It's Fabulous Friday, and today I'd like to share a card I've made using some of the superb brand new 'Visible Image' stamps and stencils, that are on pre-order over on their website....HERE


The new stamps I've use on this card are....
Daydreamer (I've christened her Dolly !!!!) and Set the Tone, I also used the new Grate-ful stencil.

I brayered Distress Inks on coated card stock, Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean, spritzed it with spray starch, enclosed it in clingfilm and left it to dry. Once dry, I used the Grate-ful stencil, and blended through it with Salty Ocean Distress ink, and edged it with Picked Raspberry. I stamped Dolly, onto this background, using Grey Versafine Ink, then using the smallest stamp from the 'Set the Tone' set, and Black Versafine ink, I stamped around the Dolly image, overlapping the edges.
On a separate piece of white card, I stamped another Dolly, and my chosen sentiment's, but this time using Black ink, I then coloured Dolly using watercolour pens, and fussy cut.
I attached them all to the background card, using 3D glue gel, to give dimension.

Don't you just love her, well I do anyway, lol !!!

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Zig Clean Color pens, Distress Ink & Stickles.




Hi there,

Do you like my new wallpaper, I thought after all this time, that I'd give you all a change, and this pink popped up, so I'm trying it out, lol !!!!

It's Fabulous Friday, so time to share another card I've made, using some more awesome 'Visible Image' products, I do love them.


The stamps I used were......
The flower stamp is from 'Create It', and the sentiment is from 'Own It', and of course I also used a couple of superb Stencils the 'Distorted Chess' and 'Butterfly Ink'.

On a piece of white card, I placed the Butterfly stencil and taped it with stencil tape, using the flower stamp on a piece of acetate, (instead of a stamping block), with some Versafine black ink, I stamped through the stencil, to fill up the gaps, I then took a black pen and ran it around the inside of the stencil. Remove the stencil, and blend lightly on the outside of the Butterfly, with Salty Ocean Distress Ink,  keeping the stamped centre white.


Using the pens, I coloured the flowers, adding shading with darker colours, and Stardust stickles to make them sparkle. When this was all dry, I added the Distorted Chess stencil, and blended  around the edges, with Salty Ocean.


I stamped the sentiment with Black ink, and coloured in the letters with the pens, shading light to dark, fussy cut them, added them to my project, and again added some Stickles for sparkle.

Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, and I'm sharing some Visible Image love, this is a card I made for the June edition of the 'Making Cards' Magazine. 
Jane, Sharon and I were chosen from the Visible Image DT, to make cards using the colours Red White and Blue, 
along with the awesome Create Your Own Calm stamp set, this is what I came up with.....


I also used the superb Dare to Swim stamp set, with the Fibres stencil.


The photo's show how I created this card, using the colours in an unconventional way, well I like to be different, lol !!!!


I used Candid Apple Distress Ink on the background, stamped some of the weed, fishes and bubbles using Versafine Clare ink, and heat embossing the weed and Seahorse onto separate pieces of card, before fussy cutting and adhering them with 3D glue gel. 


I added the sentiment, and glittered the magnificent Seahorse with Stardust Stickles.

Visible Image Stamps & Stencils, Wow Embossing Powder, Decoart Fluid Acrylics & Pebeo Dyna paints.




Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, and today I'm sharing a grey-board heart, decorated with some fantastic 'Visible Image' products.


The stamps I used on this piece were.......
the wonderful Hummingbird set 'Life is Beautiful', 
along with one of the super sentiments from the 'So much Stronger' set, 
I also used some stamps in the background, the small circles from 'Shape it Up', and of course the fabulous extra stamp that comes in the 'Life is Beautiful' set, 
 the superb 'Geometric Maze' stencil, was the main part of the background too.



I primed the heart with some white gesso, then with my brayer added random bits of pink and orange paint, until I was happy with the look. I stamped the background stamps with Turquoise paint and also some with white gesso. Then I added my stencil, and pasted through it with some Cosmic Shimmer Gold paste, when this was dry, I used a Black pen to add shadows to the raised design.

On a piece of heat resistant acetate, I stamped the Hummingbird with Versamark, and heat embossed with Black embossing powder, and fussy cut it. I then flipped it over and painted it on the reverse, with the Dyna paints. While it was drying, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto white card, cut it out and coloured it with Distress inks. I used some silk ribbon for the top, after I'd coloured it with Distress inks.
