Visible Image Stamps, Brusho's, Distress inks, Glossy Accents, & Wow Embossing Powder.

Hello there, 
 A quick post today, it was Mr Visible Image (aka Mark Alexander)'s Birthday last Saturday, so I made him a card, using some of his awesome stamp designs.

The stamp sets I used were......

The background was achieved using Brusho's, and over stamped with the Ripple and the sound-wave, using Versamark and silver Embossing powder. Distress inks were used to stamp the music and the sentiment, and the circles were stamped with white gesso. The main images were stamped onto a separate piece of card, fussy cut and added to the card.

I stamped the inside of the card using Distress Inks, for a bit of fun.

Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, & Crackle Accents.

 it's that time of the week again, Fabulous Friday, and my turn to share a 

I used one of the Brand new Stamp sets, for this card,
the Glimmer of Light set.
I love this set, apart form the awesome moth, the little light bulb is so cute, and the perfect sentiment too.
I also used the small burst from the Rays of Light set.

I stamped the light bulbs onto the card, first and second generation ink, then masked them off to blend the Distress ink background. whilst the masks were on, I stamped the small burst of light onto each bulb, using Gesso. When this was dry, I took off the masks and added Crackle Accents to each bulb.
I stamped the sentiment with black Versafine, and high lighted it with a white pen.

The fabulous Moth, was achieved using Fantasy Film and Fibers, for that wonderful opulent look.

Don't forget to visit these Visible Image places of interest......

Thanks for dropping in, hugs, Pauline xxxxx

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Wow Embossing Powder, Viva Pearl Pen & Stickles.

Hello Friends,

Another week has passed, gosh I wish they would slow down a bit, lol !!!!

I'm here again, with one of my Visible Image creations, using a few of their awesome stamp sets, it was a Birthday card for the Lovely Helen, half the driving force of the Visible Image Company.

The stamps I used on this card are.........

I stamped the ladies head, onto a 6"x 6" piece of card, in versamark, and heat embossed it using a clear powder, I then went over the card with Distress Inks, popped a stencil on and blended the ink through it. I stamped the birds using White ink, then went over the head with a white Viva Pearl pen.
I stamped the flower from the 'Happy Birthday' set, in different shades, and fussy cut them, I also fussy cut the little feathers after I'd heat embossed them in white powder, onto black card.

The larger background, was created by blending Distress ink, stamping the flower, and heat embossing the feather in white powder, and then used Stickles here and there, for that bit of sparkle I love !!!

Visible Image Stamps, Dylusion Paints, Distress Inks, Wow Embossing Powder and Stickles.


I hope you've had a good week, I have been busy again with another
 Visible Image Monolith, using another couple of awesome new stamp sets,
 and I sneaked in a little bit of the sound-wave from Music Speaks, and of course all on an MDF Monolith.

After painting the MDF, I stamped a random design over it using the circle stamp from the 'Ripple Effect' set, then stamped and heat embossed the inky splat Butterfly, and glued some Butterflies that had already been stamped  coloured and fussy cut, on top using glue gel, for dimension.

On the other side I used the same colours of paint, but a different technique, and stamped and heat embossed the Ripple, and the sound-wave, then stamping and heat embossing the sentiment onto black card, and fussy cut.
I used some more butterflies for decoration, and also stamped coloured and cut out some little hearts from the sentiment.

I think I'm getting quite addicted to decorating these Monoliths, they are such fun.

Last few days to get your entry into the July Show & Tell, for a chance of winning £25 worth of goodies.
Take a look at all the inspiration in the Facebook Group HERE.

Visible Image Stamps, Dylusion paints, Wow Embossing Powder, & Distress Inks.

Hi there,

I thought it was about time I decorated another Visible Image Monolith, they are such fun to do, and there are endless possibilities.

I used one of my fave Visible Image Stamps sets, from the new releases, for this project, it's stunning and I love it, it's called......
 plus the fabulous Rays of Light, and the Shine Bright set
you see the theme, lol !
and of course don't forget the fabulous MDF, which come in a pack of 5......

I used Dylusion Paints on the front, a Black base, then combination of colours on top, then stamped the Rays, using white Ink, where I wanted the little light bulbs to hang. I then stamped the little bulbs and the sentiment in Black Versafine Ink, and heat embossed the wonderful Moth, onto card , coloured them in using Distress Inks, and fussy cut them all.

I added glossy accents to the bulbs, and Stickles to the Moths.

On the other side, again I painted the MDF in Black, added some paste through a stencil, and when it was dry, used Gilding wax to highlight it.
 I stamped the Ray into Acetate, and heat embossed it in Yellow powder, and the large light bulb, again onto acetate, and heat embossed in Black powder. I stamped some more small light bulbs using Black ink, coloured them and then fussy cut, glued them to the MDF, and used Glossy Accents.

I wasn't happy with the large bulb being black, so using a white pen I highlighted the outline. The Moths were stamped with Stazon, onto Shrink Plastic, and I coloured them with crayons, fussy cut them, then heated and watched the magic happen...... 

I hope I have given you a bit of inspiration on how to decorate the MDF Monoliths.
