Reveal your face…

Hello! Thanks for coming to see us here on the Visible Image blog today.

Wow you are loving our NEW Face it stamps! We are incredibly happy about that! Thank you ♡


We have all been having so much fun with them, and we can’t wait to start showing you all the different looks and ways these awesome stamps have been used. The creative possibilities really are endless!



Ok, so I am by far the least experienced crafter on our creative team..  my talent lies more with creative writing. But, I am a fast learner and art is ‘in the blood’ in my family, with my very talented Grandfather designing one of the main roads here in South Wales – the A470 which  links Cardiff to the valleys. My Mother is a very talented artist, my Sister is and brilliant architect, and my Brother a structural engineer who designs incredibly complex buildings! Me, I managed to pass my ‘O’ level Art exam in school, achieving a not too shabby grade B! Since joining Mark at Visible Image I have barely had any time for crafting, as we had always been so incredibly busy making stamps. I am making the time now though… and loving every minute of my inky journey!


Ok.. enough about me and on to my face!!!

I wanted to play with our NEW Face Shape stencil and mask first, and wondered
how it would work just holding it down on my card and spritzing brushos around it…

I liked the way some of the paint seeped through so it didn’t have such a harsh edge

While waiting for that to dry, I stamped out some of the flowers from our Create it set
on a brushos background I had previously made.

I cut them out, not being too careful as I didn’t want a perfect look for them (and I am
not very patient!), and then I splattered them with some white dylusions paint

I am liking the effect!

While they dried, I went back to my face…
I stamped the features in black versa fine ink and coloured the eyes and lips using distress ink

Next I stamped and embossed my chosen quote from our Own it set in black!

Then I coloured it in using 3 brightly coloured alcohol pens

I matted my card onto black, and then on to my card blank.




Next I started to lay down my flowers randomly at the top and down one side of her face,
and added some pink dylusions paint to the centres to bring them to life

At this point I felt the purple lips need to be PINK!
Not the ideal time to change your mind BUT…
This gave me an idea!

I thought how cool they would look slightly raised, as if she was pouting!
So I stamped more lips using picked raspberry distress ink, and stuck them
on top of my original lips! I then added some wink of stella to give them some sparkle!

The pink lips bring together the pink in the flowers and the lettering really nicely ♡

I am pretty pleased with my very first FACE…
