Visible Image stamps and stencils, Brusho's, Pixie Powders, Pebeo Dyna Paints, & Wow Embossing Powders.



Hi there,

I hope you are enjoying the few tropical days we've had this week, may it long continue......
My Visible Image share this week, is a tribute to Helen's (Mrs Visible Image) youngest daughter, who had an audition this week, to hopefully start a long and happy career on the stage, she gets her final results in two weeks time....... so, as she loves singing, I thought I'd use the fabulous 'Sing' set of stamps, along with the 'Time Tunnel' stencil.


My background was achieved by placing the stencil onto some smooth water colour card, tapping some Lemon Brusho over it, and spritzing with water, then lifting off the stencil, and washing it, I left the card to dry naturally.
 I then placed the stencil back onto to the dry card, but rotating it slightly, so the bare card is showing through the openings, (not the Lemon colour), then tapping a combination of Rose Red and Turquoise Brusho over it, spritzing with water again, then lifting off the stencil, and leaving the card to dry.
On the lower half of my background card I sprinkled some Ultramarine Brusho, along with Yellow, Blue and Pink Pixie Powders, spritzed with water, and held the card up to drip down, mopping up where necessary, again leave to dry. 
I then stamped and heat embossed the singer, with Black Embossing powder, and also stamped and heat embossed the music bars with Florescent Pink Embossing Powder. Taking some Silver paint, I dry brushed all around the singer, and grounded her.


On a separate piece of white card, I stamped the Singer again, and heat embossed her, using Black embossing powder, and fussy cut her, gluing her over the image already on the background card, using some 3D glue gel.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments, onto some pink card, using Black Embossing Powder, fussy cut them too, and added them to the card, again using 3d Glue gel.

Visible Image Stamps & Stencils, Wow Embossing Powder, Translucent Embossing Paste and Glitter.



It's Fabulous Friday, time for me to share a card I've created using some 
'Visible Image' Stamps and stencils.
It was my lovely Rob's Birthday on Easter Monday, 
this is the card I made for him..............


I used various 'Visible Image' stamps, they are.......
And the Stencils I used are.......

I started with a piece of grey mount-board 5 1/4" square, which I painted with black gesso, I put the skull stencil on top and pounced through it with white gesso. Once dry, I put the stencil back on, and using a small dauber and some coloured Distress Inks, I made small circles of colour, leaving the eye and nose in white. Then using the Strobes stencil, I added some translucent paste through it, and sprinkled glitter on whilst still wet. On a piece of A5 black card I put some glitter paste through just the stars of the 'Stars & Stripes stencil. Most of the other components were stamped and heat embossed onto black card, using either White EP or Blue Topaz EP, The light bulb was stamped and heat embossed with Black EP onto White card, all these were then fussy cut, and added to the card with £D glue gel.

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks & White Gesso.



It's Fabulous Friday, and another week has flown by, but it's definitely starting to feel a little more like Spring.
Today I am sharing a card I created for one of my Workshops, using some awesome Visible Image stamps.


The stamp set I used was.......
one of my favourite 'Visible Image' sets, but then I do have quite a few !!!

The background is blended Distress inks, over stamped with various other Visible Image stamps from the Somewhere in Time set.
Then a couple of stencils from my stash, one with black ink through it, the other with white gesso through. When it was dry, I stamped all the light bulbs using Black Versafine ink, and coloured the middles with yellow ink.
 I then stamped the wonderful moth onto a piece of white card, fussy cut it and coloured it with Distress inks, and added it to the project. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white card and fussy cut, and positioned the words where I wanted them.

Hello there,

It's Good Friday, the beginning of a fabulous Easter Weekend, I hope you all have something exciting planned, or just go for total relaxation, whatever you do, enjoy it.

Today I'm sharing a wacky, bright card I've created, using a selection of awesome Visible Image Stamps.


The stamps I used were.......

The Background is created with Fluid Acrylic paints, added to the card with a palette knife, I then stamped the 'Jumping Girl' using Versamark, and heat embossed it with Black Embossing powder, I did the same with the stars, after adding the feathers, which were heat embossed with some Florescent Green EP. I made the straight lines with a ruler and a black pen. On a separate piece of card, I stamped the little boat, plane, and the sentiments I wanted ( all from Destination Unknown), and fussy cut them, and added them to the card.

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



Hi there,

Another week has passed and it's Fabulous Friday once again, so my day to share something I've created using some awesome Visible Image Stamps.

I had a Workshop planned for last Sunday, but as we had snow, I decided it was better to cancel it, to keep everyone safe. Three of the Crafters were all together, so I challenged them to make an ATC (Artist Trading Card, which are 2.5" x 3.5" ), to use 3 colours plus Black, 2 stencils, and some Visible Image Stamps, and to also add some dimension. 
Their creations were fabulous, but I decided to expand the one I made, into four and mount them, so here is the result.........



The stamps I used were........
and the stencils I used were.....
Top left..... Strobes and Stars & Stripes (with paste through),
Top Right..... Time Tunnel (with paste through) and Geometric Maze,
Bottom Left..... Cosmic Skies (with paste through) and Fibres,
and lastly Bottom Right..... Fibres and Distorted Chess (with paste through).

I used Distress inks, the images were all stamped onto white card, and heat embossed, and the light bulbs were stamped onto acetate and heat embossed.

I hope you'll have a go at some ATC's, they are so addictive to make, and fabulous to get you back into stamping, if you've lost your mojo for some reason.

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Pebeo Acrylic Paints, Wow EP, Liquid Pearls & Stickles.



Hellooooo,

Today is Fabulous Friday, so time for me to share a card I've created, using some awesome Visible Image products.


The Stamps I used were...........
'Born to Perform' with the large feather from 'Angels are Near', along with two superb stencils 'Time Tunnel' and 'Geometric Maze'.

The background was achieved by stippling Red, Yellow and White paint together onto the card, I then placed the Time Tunnel stencil on top, and stippled through it with yellow paint, I made some highlighting lines with a white pen, on top of that, I added the Geometric stencil, and stippled through it with Gold paint. I added red paint with a brush, for the floor.
Next I stamped the feather, using an embossing pad, and heat embossed it with Totally Teal EP, I then stamped the ballerina again with an embossing pad, and heat embossed her using Black powder. I used stickles and Liquid Pearls to colour the ballerina's dress. I stamped the starts and the sentiment, and heat embossed them with Back EP, and to finish off, I went around everything with a white pigment pen.
