Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Stampendous embossing powder.

Hello again, and a very warm welcome to my new followers,

Today's card I created using just three stamps from the 
fabulous Visible Image selection.

I used the damask flourish and the small rose from the Immortal Love set, and the Hearts Entwined sentiment.
I started off by stamping the damask flourish as a background, using Spun Sugar Distress ink. I then coloured some card with Festive Berries Distress ink, stamped 4 small roses with Versamark, and heat embossed using a Stampendous red sparkle powder. I coloured some more card, using Worn lipstick Distress ink this time, and  stamped 5 small roses, again in versamark, and heat embossed using the Stampendous Red sparkle powder, then fussy cut them all out. I stamped the sentiment using Black Versafine, die cut it using a heart die, and coloured the edges with Festive Berries. I attached it all to the 6"x 6" card using glue gel.

Don't forget to enter the April Visible Image 'Tag' challenge, they are so quick to make, just make sure you use at least one Visible Image stamp for a chance to win £20 worth of new stamps. Details and DT inspiration HERE.

Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Promarkers, & Wow Embossing Powder.

Hi my Crafty Friends, 

and a big welcome to my new Followers.

This week I thought I'd do something a little different, using two of the fabulous Visible Image Stamp sets,

I started with the background, a moon mask and Distress inks to make a moody scene, using torn paper to create the grass.
 I stamped trees using Edwards twig, and stamped Isabella's fence, highlighting it with a white pen in a few areas, then added a sprinkle of bats for good measure !!!

I stamped the characters in Black Memento, coloured them in Promarkers, and also used some Chipped Sapphire Distress ink, to shade the left of Isabella and the right of Edward, that helped to make the moonlight brighter. I stamped the rose onto shrink plastic, and coloured it red with a promarker, and again used the twig for the stem. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed onto acetate, and cut out and attached.

I enjoyed creating this scene, and bringing the characters to life.

Visible Image Stamps and Distress inks, on a pop up card

Hello again,

It's Fabulous Friday, and after seeing the internet flooded with pop-up cards recently, and a Challenge from my friend Hazel Eaton, I've made this one,
 using the fantastic Immortal Love set of stamps, from Visible Image.

I was supposed to only use the one set of stamps, but I sneaked in
 Bronte Script and Ink Splats, both so versatile for backgrounds.
I used 3 of my favorite colour's of Distress ink, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Black.

The construction was quite easy, (there are lots of recipe's on U-tube). I then  just stamped and fussycut the images I needed and stuck them in place.

I was very pleased with the outcome, I hope you like it too.

Don't forget to enter the Visible Image Challenge, April's theme is 'Tags', which is easy, come on, have a go, there's a chance of winning £20 worth of stamps of your own choice.

Join the Visible Image Facebook Group, see what's happening, and also put up piccy's of your creations made with Visible Image Stamps. You can also enter the Challenge there if you don't have a blog.

Clarity Stencil, Distress inks, Sweet Poppy Translucent Embossing paste and Micro beads.

Hi there,

Just a quickie, a card I made earlier this year, using a Clarity stencil, Distress inks, Sweet Poppy Translucent embossing paste and micro beads.....

I just painted through the stencil with Distress inks, washed the stencil, and heat dried the inked image, popped the stencil back on, taped it down, added Sweet Poppy translucent embossing paste with a spatula, took away the stencil and sprinkled with micro beads, and left to dry.

Thank you for popping by,

Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Wow Embossing powder, Versamark Ink Pad.

Hi there friends and fellow Crafters,

 I'm just popping by to share a card I've created using a few of the fantastic Visible Image Stamps that are available.

I have a particular liking for the fabulous 'Immortal Love' set, so I've used it on this 6"x 6" card, but you know me, I had to do something a little bit different with it !!!!

I blended three colours of Distress inks on the background, and then using both 'Bronte Script' and 'Ripped Fishnet', without a stamp block, I just dabbed here and there in coordinating colours, I then stamped the flowers using the small brocade stamp from the 'Immortal Love Set', with a Versamark pad,  heat embossed using a 'Wow' Red Sparkle embossing powder.
Using the barbed wire stamp and some green Distress ink, I made stalks.
 I also used the 'Tall Grass' stamp to add some dimension. I chose the word 'Forever' from the set, and again stamped with versamark and heat embosed with the red sparkle powder.

I stamped the 'Butterfly' using versamark, and heat embossed with a Wow, pale pink sparkle embossing powder, then coloured over the embossing, with red Distress ink.

I hope you're going to join us in the Visible Image Challenge, this month it's 'Tags', just use Visible Image stamps, make a tag and enter, for a chance to win £20 worth of stamps of your own choice.

Lavinia Stamps, Distress inks, Alcohol inks, Promarkers and stickles.

Hello friends and fellow Crafters,

Today sees the start of a New 'Lavinia Stamps Challenge', the April theme is 'Spring Colours'.

These two 8"x 8" cards. I've created using some of the brand new Lavinia stamps that I purchased at the NEC not long ago, in fact they are so new they are not on the Lavinia website yet, unfortunately I don't know the names of them either, so keep watching Lavinia Stamps for the details.

This beautiful image was coloured using Promarkers, and stamped at the bottom with Zen mini stamps using Distress inks. The background again was stamped with Distress inks, and stickles was added too.

The background of this card was blended and stamped using Distress inks, with little bits of the flowers coloured with promarkers, and then stickles. 

The acetate butterfly on this card was stamped with versamark and heat embossed in black, then I used alcohol inks on the reverse side in, when they were dry I coated the inks with white acrylic paint to make the colours pop

I hope you'll join us in the challenge, for a chance to win a whopping £40 voucher to spend on new Lavinia goodies, and as you can see the newest stamps are really fabulous. If you haven't got a blog, don't worry you can till enter via email.

Thank you once again for your visit, please leave me a comment so I know you've popped by.
