Here are my projects...... 
I've created them using some awesome 'Visible Image' stamps and stencils, with the aid of the fabulous 'MISTI' stamping platform.
I thought it would be nice to make a card, with a pressie bag and tag.

The Visible Image stamps sets I used were......
and the two stencils I used were....

Using the stencils and Distress Ink, I blended though the Geometric first followed by the Fibres,

I stamped the cracked glass, again with Distress Ink, using the Misti to line up my stamp.

Then I stamped and heat embossed the awesome eye with Black Embossing Powder.

Using the grid paper that comes with the Misti board, I lined up my card, slightly overlapping one side, and only inking the splats around the outer corner of the eye, I did this 4 times, using 4 ink colours, moving my card by half a grid each time, giving a sort of 3D look.

I then splattered some ink, mixed with water, using a fan brush.

On a separate piece of card, I heat embossed the eye, and the sentiment, and fussy cut.

I coloured the iris of my fussy cut eye, and the sentiment, with watercolour pens.

I blended around the edges of the card, and used a white pigment pen to emphasise some of  the cracked glass fragments.

I attached the fussy cut eye, which I'd first moulded with my fingers, to make it dome a little, then used the 3D glue gel to raise it too. I used Black Diamond and Stardust Stickles, to add sparkle to the eye, you could of course use some Glossy Accents instead.

Now the tag........
I cut a piece of card into a tag shape, punched a hole in it, and added a eyelet.

I heat embossed the eye as before, onto the tag, using Black Embossing Powder.

I stamped the eye onto a piece of sticky paper, and fussy cut for a mask, to protect the middle of the eye from ink.

I then repeated the stencil work, the same steps as used on the card, and again using the Misti, and the grid paper, positioning the tag to ink the splats at the outer corner, moving it by half a grid each time I stamped.

I coloured a piece of  Rayon Seam Binding, with the three ink colours, and some water, then added to the tag.

I added the same colours of glitter glue to the eye, as before.

 I cut a piece of card to fit the front of the white gift bag, and stamped, using Oxide Inks, the word 'Vision' from the sentiment, masking off the rest of the stamp, then spritzing with water to make it run a little.

Then used the stencils, as before, blended the edges, and glued it to the bag.

And lastly I added the tag.

Visible Image stamps and stencils, Brusho's, Pixie Powders, Pebeo Dyna Paints, & Wow Embossing Powders.

Hi there,

I hope you are enjoying the few tropical days we've had this week, may it long continue......
My Visible Image share this week, is a tribute to Helen's (Mrs Visible Image) youngest daughter, who had an audition this week, to hopefully start a long and happy career on the stage, she gets her final results in two weeks time....... so, as she loves singing, I thought I'd use the fabulous 'Sing' set of stamps, along with the 'Time Tunnel' stencil.

My background was achieved by placing the stencil onto some smooth water colour card, tapping some Lemon Brusho over it, and spritzing with water, then lifting off the stencil, and washing it, I left the card to dry naturally.
 I then placed the stencil back onto to the dry card, but rotating it slightly, so the bare card is showing through the openings, (not the Lemon colour), then tapping a combination of Rose Red and Turquoise Brusho over it, spritzing with water again, then lifting off the stencil, and leaving the card to dry.
On the lower half of my background card I sprinkled some Ultramarine Brusho, along with Yellow, Blue and Pink Pixie Powders, spritzed with water, and held the card up to drip down, mopping up where necessary, again leave to dry. 
I then stamped and heat embossed the singer, with Black Embossing powder, and also stamped and heat embossed the music bars with Florescent Pink Embossing Powder. Taking some Silver paint, I dry brushed all around the singer, and grounded her.

On a separate piece of white card, I stamped the Singer again, and heat embossed her, using Black embossing powder, and fussy cut her, gluing her over the image already on the background card, using some 3D glue gel.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments, onto some pink card, using Black Embossing Powder, fussy cut them too, and added them to the card, again using 3d Glue gel.
