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.

Visible Image stamps & Stencils, Distress Inks, Wow Embossing Powder,Versafine Clare Inks & Stickles.




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.
