Visible Image Stamps & Stencils, Fresco Finish Paints, and Wow Embossing Powders.

Hi there,
Sorry for the absence last week, unfortunately I'd had a fall, and injured my right arm and wrist, so was out of action for a week, it's still quite painful, but I can manage to use the computer again, and craft, thank goodness, but I do keep uttering some rude expletives now and again, I am sorry to say, lol !!!!!

Anyway, it's Fabulous Friday, and time for me to share one of my Visible Image creations, this is a card for the boys or girls who are into music.

The stamp set I used was......
Rock Out, and the stencil I used was.....Play Guitar.

The background was achieved by smearing very small blobs of acrylic paint  (about 4 or 5 colours), over black card using a palette knife in random directions. Then I placed the Stencil over the dry background, with one of the colours of paint on a piece of foam, I pounced through the stencil.
Using the star boarder, with Black Versafine ink, I stamped around three of the edges, on the forth edge (the bottom), I used a piece of copy paper to get a straight edge, and blended with some Black Soot Oxide ink, to make the ground. After drying all the ink with a heat tool, I stamped the sentiment and the image, using an embossing pad, and heat embossed with Wow Black Glint embossing powder, I then sprinkled a small amount of Wow Totally Teal embossing glitter, to one side of the image, and heated from below the card, so's the powder didn't blow off. I finished off with some highlights, using a white pigment pen.

Some Visible Image places of interest to visit.......

Visible Image Stamps, Brusho's, Prima Bloom Sprays, & Wow Embossing Powders

Hi there

It's Fabulous Friday, and my day to share something I've created, using some awesome Visible Image Stamps. This card is one that I taught in one of my recent Workshops, using the fantastic Sparkle in the Rain stamp set.

I used watercolour card for this project, stamping the fabulous 'Rain Lady' (as I fondly call her) using a Wow Embossing Pad, and then heat embossing with Ebony EP. Next I spritzed some coloured Prima Bloom sprays onto the card, and  sprinkled some Brusho's onto the wet card, also spritzing with a little water to spread the colour about, I left this to dry naturally.
When it was dry, there is a subtle sheen to the card, from the mica powder in the Bloom sprays. Masking off 'Rain Lady', I used the Rain stamp, with the embossing pad,  and heat embossed using a clear powder, this gave me a slightly wet rain look, over this I stamped again with the embossing pad, but this time I heat embossed with 'White puff Twinkle' powder. I also used 'white Puff Twinkle' for the sentiment and the 'puddles'. I finished off with some Stardust Stickles.

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Wow Embossing Pad and Embossing Powders & Clean Colour Pens.

Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday again, and time for me to show a little bit of 
'VISIBLE IMAGE' inspiration, 
(they have a 'Black Friday Sale' on this weekend, loads of stamps reduced, so fill your boots).

This week I chose a couple of their awesome stamp sets, and a super duper stencil to play with, and came up with this card.......

The stamp sets I used were.....
VISOMETRY and TOMORROW DOESN'T EXIST, both of them are in the Black Friday Sale, so grab yourself a bargain.

Both backgrounds was created with some Distress inks, direct to card, very randomly, and then stamped on top using a Wow Embossing pad (in my estimation, much better than a Versamark pad, and I didn't think I'd ever be able say that !!!!) 
The Visometry patterns were also stamped with a Wow Embossing pad heat embossed using Totally Teal embossing glitter, as was the jumping girl, but she had some Pink Fizz embossing powder sprinkled on top of her. 
The sentiment was heat embossed using Purple Orchid embossing powder, and I coloured in the Visometry patterns, using some Clean colour brush pens.

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, & Versafine Ink.


Just popping in to share my 'Visible Image' make for this week, after all it is Fabulous Friday !!!!

This week I decided to use one of my favourite 'Visible Image' stamp sets, and I know it's one of yours too, along with a couple of others.

The stamps I used on this card, were.......... 
Curious Cats, 'young, wild, free', from Free Soul, the 'and' from Somewhere in Time, and the lying down cat from Create It.

I created the background using the 'straight to paper' technique, using Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Mustard Seed Distress inks. I then stamped the Cats face using Versafine Onyx Black, I then stippled the face using a small stencil brush and Carved Pumpkin Distress Inks, I also stamped the three little Cats in the same colour. The sentiment was stamped again using Versafine, masking off the bits I didn't want. I do love this cute Puddy Tat !!!!

Visible Image Stamps, Wow EP, and Brusho's.

Hello there my friends,

Here I am again with another 'Visible Image' Fabulous Friday project.
 This one is very easy to achieve, and I've used this technique at some of my recent Inky Workshops. It would work with quite a few of the fantastic Visible Image silhouette stamps, but I chose to use the beautiful butterfly out of the Live Life Now set, and the sentiment is from the Imperfection is Beauty set.

The card stock I used is Watercolour card, and I heat embossed the large butterflies, using Wow Bright White embossing powder, I then sprinkled some Brusho's onto the card and spritzed with water, adding more colour and more water to get the effect I wanted, I then left this to dry naturally.
Once dry, I added the smaller butterflies using a Distress Ink, then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using Ebony embossing powder from Wow.

Visible Image Stamps and stencils, Wow EP and Distress Inks,


It's fabulous Friday, so the day for me to show you something 'Visible Image'.
There is a new themed challenge, this month it's 'Make a Tag', for a chance of winning a super £40 voucher, for some new Visible Image goodies.

So here's my tag.........

The Visible Image products I've used are......

I coloured the tag pink ( well of course, lol ), using Distress Ink, then placed the Chess stencil over it, and blended through it using some other colours. I then placed the skull stencil on top, and blended through it with Black Distress ink.
I had a grey board tag topper in my stash, so coated it with Versamark, and added some extra thick embossing powder, and heated, leaving it lovely and glossy, I glued this to the top of the tag.
Meanwhile, I stamped the light bulb, onto a piece of white card and the sentiment and the small moth onto some Gold mirri card, and fussy cut them all. I stamped some of the smaller rays onto the tag, and heat embossed with gold sparkle embossing powder. I coloured some american seam binding to match the colour scheme.

To finish it off using a gold pen,,
I drew around all the edges of the skull.
I hope you'll have a go at a tag and enter.

The stamps I used were Ink SplatsMesh-ellanious, the circles from Ray's of light, and the sentiment is Create to Escape.
The background was made using Distress inks, painted on, then covered in cling film until it was dry, I then stamps the mesh on the edges, and a few circles dotted around. All the Ink splats were stamped and heat embossed onto acetate, and fussy cut, then glued into place with 3D glue gel. I heat embossed the sentiment onto white card, and coloured then fussy cut randomly, and again glued into place with 3D glue. To finish it off I added some micro beads to add a bit of interest, and a small moth from the Glimmer of Light set.
All these stamp sets, and more will be aired tomorrow.
