Visible Image Stamps, Alcohol Inks, Wow embossing powder and Stickles.

Hey my crafty friends, how are you.

 Another week has flown by, and I've been busy creating, as usual.
I was having a bit of  sort out, and found my Alcohol inks, so have been playing with them, I love their bright juicy colours, and of course they are the perfect match with some awesome Visible Image Stamps.

The Visible Image stamps used on these two card were...
Flower Inkognito ( one of my favourite ) and the Happy Birthday Set.

Using a Distress Ink blending tool with a piece of felt, I put 3 colours of Alcohol ink onto the felt, and a drop of Blending Fluid, then pounced over a piece of 
 8"x 8" white gloss card.
 For the first card I cut a 5" x 5" piece from the pattered card I had just made, and stamped  the flower and stem using Versamark, and heat embossed using Black powder, then using the Happy Birthday stamp, did the same. a little bit of mat and layering onto a 6" card blank and some Stickles, and hey presto........

The second card was the left over pieces of  the card I had coloured, and again using the same stamps and versamark, but this time using a black sparkle embossing powder, adding Stickles to finish. 2 Very simple cards made.


This was a tag I made for the lovely Mrs Awesome, (aka) Helen, as she was feeling very under the weather with 'manflu' last week caught from Mr Awesome himself, Mark, the owners of Visible Image Stamps.

 The Visible Image stamps I used on this was...
I made this tag in the same way as before, but instead of pouncing the ink, I dragged and weaved my tool onto the card, giving a sort of wavy effect, I stamped the Inkognito butterfly, and heat embossed in black powder again, I then stamped the large butterfly with Versamark and heat embossed, onto a small piece of heat resistant acetate, and fussy cut it, fixing it above the butterfly on the tag, a sentiment and some mat and layers, and of course Stickles to finish.
