Visible Image Stamps, Demo cards from the C&C TV Show 12.12.15

Hi there my lovely friends,

As you probably know, Visible Image Stamps had a show on Create & Craft TV last Saturday, between the Awesome Mr Mark Alexander and myself, we managed to demo five cards, mine were very quick, so I thought I'd run through them again in a bit more detail........

Card One.....

The first demo was using the stamp set..... Angels are Near.

For the background, I took a piece of white Centura Pearl card, and using 3 Distress ink colours, I blended them, spritzed it with water, and blotted with kitchen towel. 
Using the feather stamp covered in Versamark, I stamped in the middle, then heat embossed using white detail powder. Using the feather again, but only the splatty end of it, and a gold ink pad, I stamped around the edges of the inked background, I then applied gold gilding wax with my finger around the four edges. mat andd layered it onto a card blank.
 I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using a gold sparkle EP, onto a small piece of card, added gilding wax to the edges, and mat and layered it onto the card

The feather was stamped again onto a piece of heat proof acetate, with versamark, heat embossed using the gold sparkle EP again, and fussy cut, this was applied to the card using 3D glue.

Card Two....

The stamp set was.....Butterfly Inkognito Set.

I stamped both the butterfly and the sentiment on a white piece of card, using a Versamark pad, and heat embossed with Clear powder, when it had cooled, I blended over the stamping, using 3 colours of Distress ink, and like magic the image and sentiment appear, I then spritzed with water and dried. 
Using a tacky glue on my index finger I went around the edges of the card, then sprinkled glitter on it to give a sparkly edge.

I stamped the butterfly using versamark, onto heat proof acetate, and heat embossed using a white detail powder, I folded the acetate so's that the butterfly's wings were together, and cut some rounded wings, taking off all the ink splats, this was attached to the card leaving the wings free to flutter, I added glitter glue for that extra sparkle.

Card three.......

The stamp set used was.......Behind every Mask.

Taking 2 similar colours of Distress ink, I used Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar, I put the ink straight from the pads onto my glass mat, sprayed water onto it so it was nice and wet, and 'smooched' (my term, lol) my card into the mixture to cover the card with a coloured wash, I dried it straight away using my heat gun. Using Picked Raspberry, I edged the cars with my blending tool.

 Now to the bit that I did'nt show on TV, because of time....... I mixed a small bit of gold mica powder with Picked Raspberry and water, and using a paint brush, I went around the edges of the background, I also did the same to a small piece of card fro the sentiment. I added a touch more water to the mixture that was left, loaded up my paint brush with it and flicked it over the coloured background. 
Taking the image and the sentiment, I stamped them both using Picked Raspberry, I also coloured in the iris's of the eyes with a blue pen, and added a dot of gold mice & water to the middle of the eye. 

 I  stamped the mask image with Versamark onto heat proof acetate, then used some yummy Pink/Gold sparkle EP  and heat sealed it, I fussy cut it, also cutting out the eyes too, and attached it to the card with 3D glue.

Thank you for watching the show, and also if you emailed in thank you too.
