Visible Image Stamps and Stencils, Distress Oxides and Wow Embossing Powders.



Hi there,
It's Fabulous Friday, so time for me to share something I've created, using some of the awesome Visible Image goodies available.

Again it's a card for a man, people say that men are very hard to create for, but Visible Image have that covered, with some fantastic Stamp sets, and also some new stencils.


On this card, the 2 stamp sets I used were.......
and the 2 stencils.... Grungy Union Jack and Strobes.

I took a square piece of white card, placed the Union Jack stencil on it, and blended through it, using three Oxide inks, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Twisted Citron, after removing the stencil, I spritzed it with water, and let it run. Then after drying it, I placed on the second stencil, with the middle of it at the top of the card, and the strobes radiating down, and blended through it with Salty Ocean.
When it was dry, I stamped the Drummer, and the Rock Out with Versamark, and heat embossed the drummer using Black EP, and the Rock Out with white EP. I grounded the drummer, by adding a darker band underneath him.
Using the devils horn hand, from Rock Out, I stamped with Seedless Preserve Oxide ink, and gently coloured them in in the same colour.

I hope you'll visit the 'Visible Image' Shop, and see the whole range of goodies available HERE.

Vicible Image Stamps, Brusho's, Distress Inks & Wow Embossing Powders.


Hello everyone,

It's Fabulous Friday again, and time for me to share some 'Visible Image' Love. Well, I was so excited to receive some of the awesome new Visible Image stencils to play with, it will give an awesome new dimension to the already fantastic 'Visible Image' stamp designs,
well done Mark Alexander (designer extraordinaire).


This card was created using Brusho's, and the stencil I used was Fibres, and the stamps I used were Sing and Disguise of a Smile.
After sprinkling yellow and red Brusho's onto the card, spritzing it with water, and adding more Brusho, to get a nice intense colour, drying it, then using the stencil, I went over the whole card with Festive Berries Distress Ink, using a blending tool, this gave a nice 'Hot' feeling. I stamped the microphone using Oxide ink, but it sort of disappeared into the background, lol, again I dried it all.
I stamped the beautiful singer using Versamark, and heat embossed her with Black Glint EP, I also did the same with the top words. I felt the new 'Disguise of a Smile' sentiment went quite well with this image, and I heat embossed it with White powder. To finish off, using a quickie glue pen, and glitter, I gave her a sparkly dress.

Visible Image Stamps, Decoart Acrylic paints and Wow Embossing Powders.



Hi there,
 I have something a little different for you today, and look...... no pink, lol !!!!
This is a Birthday card I made, using some awesome Visible Image stamps, it was especially for the creator of the stamps Mark Alexander. I made it a bit grungy, but hopefully interesting too.

The stamps I used were......


I stamped the Watch using Versamark onto white card, heat embossed it with Bronze embossing powder, then stamped it again, but this time I heat embossed it with Black embossing powder, and put them aside, whilst I made the background.
Using turquoise and brown acrylic paint randomly, I brayered it onto a piece of white card, until it was covered, then dried it. I dusted it with an anti-static bag, then stamped the cogs using Versamark, around the three top edges and heat embossed with Bronze EP.
Using the group of numbers, and using Versamark, I heat embossed it with a combination of Bronze and some Turquoise glitter EP.
There is a big splatty silhouette stamp in the 'Somewhere in Time' set, which is extremely useful for showcasing an image,  which I stamped again using Versamark, then heat embossed with the turquoise glitter EP.


Right back to the watch, I cut out the bronze one, and adhered it on top of the embossed splat, I then fussy cut the black Watch into all the small components, I adhered these small bits in their designated places with 3D glue gel, I stamped and heat embossed the springs, with Black EP.
Lastly, onto some Turquoise card, I stamped and heat embossed the name, using the 'Alphabetical' set, and the Happy Birthday from the 'Words to Go' set, fussy cut them, and adhered those too.

Visible Image Stamps, Oxide Distress Inks, Wow Embossing Powders and Stickles.




Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, and time for me to share something I've created using some fantastic Visible Image Stamp sets. 



On this card the Visible Iimage stamp sets I used were.....
Face It, the flower and the crackle are from Create It,
 the words 'Creative People' are from Outside the Lines
and 'Sparkle' is from Smile, Sparkle & Shine,
 and I also used the Face shape mask and Stencil, to contour the chin.

The background was a achieved by blending three colours of Oxide ink randomly,  and then spritzed with water.
 On top of this I blended the same inks through a small dotty stencil, again randomly.


I then stamped the beautiful face, using Versamark, and heat embossed it using a Black Sparkle embossing powder, whitening the eyes with household bleach on a paintbrush. I stamped the crackle stamp with some pink Oxide ink, down one side of the face, then stamped again using blue Oxide ink, when dry, I added a touch of pink and blue Stickles, to give them sparkle.
 The lips were coloured with pink Stickles, and the eye shadow is blue Stickles.
Using a palette knife, I spread some translucent stencil paste, through the dotty stencil, just in the neck area. I removed the stencil, and sprinkled glitter over the wet paste.



I stamped loads of flowers with Versamark, and heat embossed them, some with pink sparkle embossing powder, and some with blue sparkle embossing power, then fussy cut them all. I shaped them with my fingers, glued a gem in the middle of each, then added them around the face using 3D glue gel.
The words 'Creative People' was stamped with Versamark, onto pink card, and heat embossed with black sparkle EP, fussy cut, and positioned into the flowers with 3D glue. 'Sparkle' was stamped again using Versamark, and heat embossed with Pink Sparkle EP.

Visible Image Stamps, Brusho's and Wow Embossing Powder.



Hi there,

It's Fabulous Friday, and my day to share a little inspiration using some awesome Visible Image Stamps. On this card I only used one set, which is
 'Stay Wild'.


The background is Brusho's onto watercolour card,(I love the intense colour that Brusho's give you), when they were totally dry, I stamped the horse twice, using Versamark, heat embossed it with 3 glitter Embossing Powders, then sprinkled some White Frantage ( it's like a ultra thick EP, with glitter in it) onto the top, and heated it from beneath.


There are two sentiments in this set, and I chose 'Stay Wild' for this card. stamped with versamark, and heat embossed with Black EP.


This photo shows the sparkle of the EP's.

I also used red Stickles for that added sparkle, and a white pigment pen to make her pop. I stamped my sentiment onto white card, and heat embossed it with black powder, fussy cut the words, and added some pink ink around the edges.

The background is Distress inks on watercolour card, I stamped the trees, moon and sentiment with Oxide inks, and the Geese and Ducks were heat embossed. Using a ball tool, I created blossom on the trees, with Starlight paints and stickles.


This card started as an off-cut of watercolour card which I had coloured with Distress inks, it was so fab, that I didn't want to throw it away, and as it was orange, it made the the perfect background for my Radio active Squirrel, hahaha, well that's what Eileen Godwin called it.......

Hello my Lovelies,

I am back from my super holiday, two weeks of total relaxation, it was bliss!
I did miss getting inky whilst away but, and as it's Fabulous Friday, I got myself messy to decorate an MDF tag, using some awesome Visible Image stamps.


I coated the MDF tag with black gesso, dried it, then added a layer of Crackle medium, when it was tacky, I painted a coat of white gesso over it, and watched the crackle appear !!! 
Using some Archival inks through a stencil, I created the light beams over the crackle, then stamped the small butterflies onto the MDF using Versamark, and heat embossed with some Wow glitter embossiing powder. I also added some gilding flake randomly for some extra sparkle.



 On a piece of card, I stamped the Singer and the small butterflies using versamark, and heat embossed them, the Singer with black EP and the butterflies with glitter EP again from Wow, then I fussy cut them all, and stuck them onto the tag using Pinflair glue gel. 



The stamps I used for this project were........
