Visible Image Stamps, Izink Spay inks, Wow Embossing Powders, and Stickles.



Hi there,

Another week has flown by, these dark afternoons make the day's seem so short, but hey, it's nearly Christmas......
So, it's Fabulous Friday again, and here's one of my 'Visible Image' creations, from some time ago. I was lucky enough to be asked by Helen ( aka Mrs Visible Image) to create something for the October issue of The Craft Stamper, a mixed media piece, using the stunning 'Somewhere in Time' stamp set, the 'Count me In' Stencil and the 'Strobes' Stencil.


As I made this back in the heat of the Summer, and I can't remember what I actually used, dohhh, so I have photographed the write up, for you to see......

Visible Image Stamps, Decoart Liquid Acrylic Paint, Distress Inks, Versafine Black ink & Stickles.



Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, so time for me to share a card I've made using some of the awesome products from 'Visible Image'.
So, I've made a card that could be sent to a loved one, someone that needs a little boost from a friend, or it could even be sent as a Christmas card.


The stamp set I used was .......

My background was made using some Decoart liquid acrylic paint, applied with a spatula, onto white card, the paint is very highly pigmented, so small amounts go a long way, I used Red, Pink and Orange. I used Wilted Violet Distress ink to stamp the background letters, the hearts and also blended the bottom too.


On a separate piece of white card, I stamped the typewriter using Black 
Versafine, masking the top line of the stamp ( the paper coming out of the typewriter ) to make the roll of paper longer, I then fussy cut it 
I stamped the word Hello, with black ink and some hearts in Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, onto the typing paper. I also  stamped the sentiment onto white card, and fussy cut. To make the typewriter jump off the card, I raised it with 3D Glue gel. To finish off, I added Stardust stickles to all the hearts.

Visible Image Stamps & Stencils, White Gesso, Izink Glitter Paste, Wow Embossing powder & Clean Color Brush pens.




Hi there,

I hope this post finds you well, and keeping warm, Winter is definitely here.

So, it's Fabulous Friday again, time for me to share a card I've created, using some of the fantastic products available from 'Visible Image', and as the 'Show and Tell' theme for November is Sparkle, I think this one passes !!! 

I do love a good stencil, and the one I've used here, Butterfly Ink, is superb.



The stamps I used on this card were.......
The Butterfly from 'Own kind of Beautiful',
circle and square background stamps from 'Shape it Up',
 and the sentiment is from the 'Voices in your Head' set.

My background was a piece of white card, onto which I had randomly stamped and coloured the butterflies, but I felt it was far too bold, so I put a coat of white gesso over the top, then blended some Distress Inks on top. 
I then put the stencil on the dry background, and using my palette knife pasted through it with some glitter paste, I lifted the stencil, washed it, and when the paste was dry, I popped the stencil back on and added a second coat of paste.
When it was all dry, I stamped all the circles randomly with Versamark, and heat embossed with White powder, and stamped the squares with black Versafine.
I coloured all the circles and squares with watercolour brush pens.


On a separate piece of white card, I stamped the sentiment in black Versafine, fussy cut, and again coloured in some of the letters with watercolour pens.

Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Pixie powders, Distress Inks & Stickles.



Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, so time for me to share another of my creations, using some of the fantastic 'Visible Image' products.


This card was achieved using....... The Queen of Hearts stamp set, and The Time Tunnel stencil.

My background was actually some waste from another card I'd made, I'd used the Time Tunnel Stencil with Pixie Powders through it, there was still a lot of product left on the stencil, so rather than waste it, I spritzed it with water, and pressed the stencil onto a piece of white card, like taking a print. I often use my stencils in this way, two for the price of one, so no wastage !!!!

As my background was covered with speckles, which were super shiny (unfortunately my photo's don't show the true extent of the shine from the pixie powders, which are full of mica). 


I decided that I wanted the Queen to have speckles too, so, I splattered some Distress inks, mixed with a little water, using my fan brush, onto white card, then stamped Queenie onto it, and fussy cut her, I then used some watercolour pens to colour her in, and added Stardust Stickles to give her that extra bling.

 Before attaching her with 3D Glue Gel, I blended some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink along the bottom of the background card, to 'ground' her, and also gently blended some Black soot around all the edges.
To finish off, I stamped the hearts around the Queen, again using Distress Ink.

Visible Image Stamps & Stencils, Alcohol Inks, Distress Inks & Wow Ebony Embossing Powder.




Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, and time for me to share another creation I've made with some awesome Visible Image products.


I love the clean lines of this card, the stamp set I used was.......
Street Dance Boys, along with two stencils Grate-ful and 1983.

I started with a piece of Glossy white card stock, and some Alcohol Inks, dabbing the inks with a felt pad on a inking tool, this bit is quite exciting, as you never really know what you'll end up with, lol !!!!
I then used both my stencils, the 1983 first, blended through with some Salty Ocean Distress ink, then the same with the Grate-ful, but this time using Candid Apple, then dried them with my heat tool, wafting from side to side.
I stamped the dancers with a Versamark pad, and heat embossed with Wow Ebony Embossing Powder, I did the same with all the extra little stamps in the set. I then used my white pigment pen to draw around some of the images, to make them 'pop'. I stamped the sentiment onto white card, and heat embossed, and used Salty Ocean to tie it into the colour scheme.
