Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Wow Embossing Powder & White gesso.


It's Fabulous Friday, and time for me to share a bit of Visible Image Inspiration.
You may have seen this card showcased on Mark's recent Create & Craft show, and I created it using the awesome Believe in Unicorn's set of stamps, it has some superb scene building stamps in it, along with the stunning Unicorn.

It is quite a simple card to achieve,  I first stamped my moon, and masked it off with a post-it note, then blended and coloured my background using Distress Inks. 
I stamped my clouds and stars using white gesso, ( remember to always wash your stamps as soon as you've finished stamping with any kind of paint).
When it was dry, I stamped my proud Unicorn, using an Embossing pad, and heat embossed it with a silver glitter Embossing Powder (unfortunately my photo doesn't show all the sparkle).
 I stamped the sentiment with black Versafine, then with a bit of shading on the clouds with a soft pencil, and some white pen work on the sentiment, job done.

The very cool and different stamp set I used was.....

The background was Salty Ocean Distress ink, on which I rolled a scrunched up baby wipe, to make the cloud effect. I then stamped the planes and the sentiments using black Versafine, added some Picked Raspberry to the planes, then used water and a paintbrush to add the highlights, and finished off with the pen dashes. And, no glitter, hahahaha !!!!!

Hello friends,

The Stamp I used on this card were......
This 6" x 6" card, was very simple to create, I stamped the smaller light bulb three times onto Black cardstock, using a Versamark pad, and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. On a separate piece of card, using the sentiment stamp, I repeated the process.
With a white pigment pen, I put the highlights into the bulbs, and using Pink and yellow Stickles, I coloured in the middle light bulb, and added Pink Stickles to 'Colour' in the sentiment.

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Kaleidacolor Ink Pad, Wow EP and Stickles.

Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, the gateway to the weekend, and it looks as if the weather is going to be lovely. Anyway, it's my day to share a project I've made using some awesome Visible Image Stamps.

I used two stamp sets on this 6"x 6" card.......
Shining Bright and the moths are from Glimmer of Light.

I used a Kaleidacolor Ink Pad to do the background wording, stamping the sentiment where ever it would fit, I then blended some Distress inks around the edge's. The lightbulb was stamped with versamark onto heat resistant acetate, and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I then fussy cut it, and coloured the back of it with alcohol pens.

I used the small moths out of the 'Glimmer of Light' set, stamped them with Versafine, and coloured them with Distress Inks. I of course added Stickles, there has to be a little bit of 'bling' in our lives !!!!

If you are anywhere near Alexander Palace, London this weekend, Visible Image has got a stand at 'The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show', pop along and say hello to Helen and Mark, on Saturday 8th April or Sunday 9th April......I wish I was going !!!!

Here are my DT samples.......

This first A5 card has these stamps on it.....
The Honeysuckle was coloured with Distress inks, after stamping it with Versafine Black ink, I then made a light blue wash, again with Distress ink for the background. I stamped the Bee's onto a separate piece of card, again coloured using Distress ink, then fussy cut them, added then to the card using 3D glue gel, and put on plenty of Stickles.

Card 2

On this A5 card, the stamps I used were.....
I stamped all the blooms with a Kaliedacolor ink pad, which gives them all the nice bright colours, I stamped the mushrooms and birds in Distress ink. I then stamped the blooms again on a separate piece of card, and fussy cut them to give the card extra dimension, and used lots of stickles for bling.

Card 3.

I made a gelli plate background for this card, the stamps I used were.....
Once I'd brayered some Distress ink onto the gelli, I stamped the Nigela's onto the gelli too, then took a print. On top of this print, I stamped again using Versafine ink, then added stickles of course !!!!

Card 4.

This third 6" x 6" card was made using the following stamps.....
I used the new Distress Oxide inks for this background, then stamped the Mon Pods and the Zen plant with an Oxide ink, I then stamped the Pods again, and the sentiment, masking the words to get what I wanted, on top of the background, this time using Versafine ink. I used distress inks on the coloured pods, highlighted with a white pigment pen, 
and then of course I added more stickles  !!!!!
