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.

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.
