Visible Image Stamps, Brusho's, Wow embossing powder, Distress inks, Gilding flake, & Stickles.

Hi there,

It's me, back again, spreading some Visible Image love,
 superb deeply etched photo-polymer uniquely designed Stamps, 
which I love to use, can you tell, lol !!!

The very unique stamps I've used for this project are......
The lips from Bite meSmile, Sparkle, ShineRipped FishnetInk Splats, and the straight stamp from Edgy.

This week, just for a change, I've used a 5" x 7" canvas, which I primed with 2 coats of white Gesso. Whilst that was drying, I stamped my main images, the lips and the sentiment, onto some heat resistant acetate, using versamark, and heat embossed them with some pink sparkle embossing powder and fussy cut.

Right back to the canvas, I added some grunge paste through a stencil, and dried with my heat tool.
 I spritzed it all with water, and sprinkled Brusho paints onto it, spritzed with water again, and then let it all drip down. I also mixed some red Brusho with water, and let that drip down too.
Using some gold paint on the Ripped Fishnet and Edgy stamps, I stamped randomly over the canvas. I found an old jar of white ink in one of my drawers, which had gone very thick, but it was perfect for the white drips and circles !!! I edged the canvas with gilding flake, then glued the lips and sentiment into place, and lastly added Stickles for more sparkle.

Visible Image Stamps, distress inks, Black Embossing Powder & Stickles.

Hi again,

Another week gone, and I'm back to share three cards I've made using some of the very unique stamps from Visible Image.

I have used the same inking technique on all three cards, using glossy cardstock, Distress inks applied with a Brayer and then clingfilmed until dry. I love the effect it gives.

The first card was stamped in versamark and then heat embossed using black powder. The Visble Image stamps I used were.....
 Birds and Feathers from Free Your Imagination

I used the inky side of the flower stamp and distress inks to edge this card, and again heat embossed the main images.
The stamps used here were.....
 and an older Visible Image sentiment, that some of you might have.

And again I used a stamp from the set with Distress inks, to edge this card, and  some frantage powder below the horse.
This is one of my favourite sets to use......

Just a week or so to get your 'Show and Tell' entries in, for a chance to win some new Visible Image stamps, all details are HERE.

Do visit the Facebook group too, to see whats going on, and to see the inspiration that fans of Visible Image are posting, HERE.

I have another 'Inky Workshop' in the pipeline, Sunday 23rd August 2015, 10am - 4pm, in Warwick, email me for further details.....

Thank you for visiting, have a fabulous week,

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, and Embossing Powders.

I'm back from my wonderful two weeks holiday in Swanage, Dorset, the weather was fantastic, so I'm sporting a rather nice tan !!! I am finding it very hard to fit in any crafting at the moment, with all the rain we've had this week, it's a bit like Widow Twankey's Laundry in my house, lol.

Anyway, I'd like to share a couple of cards I made a few weeks ago, using some unique Visible Image Stamps.

The backgrounds for both cards, were created using the same stamping technique.

On this first card, the stamps I used are......
Inkognito Butterfly and 'Life is a Journey' sentiment, from the 'This is Me' Set.

The background was made using Distress inks, and then over stamped using Versamark and heat embossing with a Black Sparkle Embossing Powder, likewise the sentiment.

And on this card the stamps I used are...

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed using white Embossing Powder.

I hope you've created something for the 'Show and Tell', for a chance to win some new Visible Image goodies, click the link for all the details.

Check out the Visible Image Face Book Group too, there's plenty going on there, go on, join in, you know you want to !!!!

Thank you for visiting, normal transmission will resume next week, lol, when I've caught up with house chores, I do love my holidays, but when you leave a Son at home for 2 weeks, there's an awful lot of work to come home to, hehehe !!!!

Big hugs, Pauline xxxxxxx
