The stamp set has one tweedle on it, but if you white out the pupils of the eyes and redraw them with black fine liner, then you have them both!
Finally I overcame my ‘fear’ of using the gelli plate and had heaps of fun creating some backgrounds. The background behind the background was an off-cut of one of these. I don’t know what I was so afraid of!
The tweedles were easy to colour in and easy to cut out! Love that!
I have been adding to my stock and now have quite a good range of Visible Image stamps for sale in Australia….so, exciting times ahead.
Thanks Dot! What an awesome card! Love love loving that background ♡ Looking forward to seeing more of your gelli plate creations! You will find more of Dot’s gorgeous projects over on her blog, along with her contact details.

We have some fantastic inspiration for you today from Teresa Morgan…
Happy 2017!!! Did you miss me – I certainly missed you all, and am happy to back in my Thrilling Thursday slot for Visible Image stamps. This is the start of my third year with the team and I am certain that it will be as inspiring and full of originality as the previous two!
On to my project – mixing up a couple of sets with a cool background technique:
My background was created with alcohol inks applied to Yupo ‘paper’. Yupo is a synthetic substrate made from polypropolene and has a plastic, shiny surface. It is ideal for alcohol inks and although quite expensive, definitely worth trying out if you like creating different effects.
Tweedle is coloured with Promarkers and Brushmarkers, with some blingy flower gems added to his trousers!!I carefully cut him out, backed him onto black card and cut around, leaving a black border so that he stood out from the colourful background.
I covered the background with yellow alcohol ink before dripping different colours on top to create spots of colour. I then took a felt pad and added some drops of Blending Solution to it before randomly dabbing over the background to create the marbled finish.
We have a crazy busy day ahead here…making loads of gorgeous stamps to take to the NEC next week! We hope to see you there 🙂 It’s going to be so much fun! On top of all the awesome stamps on our stand, and of course the stunning Design Team samples for you to drool over, Pauline will be holding Make & Take sessions too! Creating some rather funky tags… We’ll be sharing her projects with you very soon!
We have some amazing inspiration for you here on the Visible Image blog today… Something Christmassy, something vintage, and something ROCK!
We start off with this stunning card from our Swedish Design Team member Lisa Nygards…
Now when we’re soon turning the page over to November I can start feel the christmas vibes. No feeling outside yet though, but I don’t mind that. We get snow over here so it will be more than enough anyway. We’ll also get the freezing cold temperatures for a way to long period.
Today I’ve used Alice in Wonderland and made her a little bit more christmas-ish then usual. The magic drink she has will probably turn you into Santa or something… who knows! The big word stamp Merry Christmas in the background is stamped with Versa Mark (no color embossing ink) direct on the Kraft Cardstock base. Alice is cut out and mounted on 3D foam to get a bit dimension.
Stamps from Visible Image: Alice in WonderlandMerry Christmas
Papers: Kraft Cardstock
Embellishments: Mini Snowflakes (Martha Stewart border punch), Bling (Nellie Snellen)
Other: Versa Mark pad.
Colors: Skin: E000-00-21-11-13-R20, Hair: E39-35-33, Red: R59-37-35, White: C3-1-00

We’ll be back shortly with a fantastic tutorial from Kim Robertson for an amazing vintage card!
Hi There! Thank you for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today 🙂
Lots of awesome inspiration coming your way this weekend. Here’s Susanne Rose with another fantastic Alice In Wonderland themed project…
Today it’s my day for Visible Image Stamps. As an exception I created a monochrome card this week. My main image is the lovely white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. I love this image and the sentiment is so true!
I used the Retro Dots for my background and the ornaments from the Revolution Set to embellish the card. The doily is a Cottage Cutz die.
Susanne has been creating amazing things with our Wonderland Cheshire Cat stamp set, and has another brilliant project to share with you today. Over to Susanne…
It’s my day today to share some inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps. I created a little mixed media Canvas with the awesome Chesire Cat. The background is created with the Neocolor II watercolor pastels.
The smiling face is stamped with Memento Lux. I used the Neocolors also for coloring the cat image. I build my palett by scribbling the colors onto an acrylic block. I apply the color with a wet brush.
Kim Bacon is here with her Marvellous Monday post… and she has strayed into usually unknown territory 😉
Today I am showcasing 2 cards I made using the really wonderful Robot stamp from Visible Image.
You might already know that I ‘don’t do characters’ but once again Visible Image have designed a stamp that has drawn me out of my normal choice.
Think back to their fab Tin Man and those pesky little Tweedle Twins, you can see why I picked the Robot Data set….
The first card I made uses the brilliant accessory stamps along with the Robot. I used Brusho paints for the background and the robot. I also used Diamond Glaze on the Robot to give him extra shine. I used water to draw some of the colour off the Brusho background.
The second card I made came after an idea I had one sleepless night! I have some of my best ideas during the night, insomnia is a devil sometimes. I had been thinking about these new release stamps and when I finally closed my eyes I saw rows and rows of Robots. Took some time cutting out the masks but I think the result is quite good even if it is maybe a little bit menacing!

I knew: I love it!
The background is created with Gelatos and I colored the rabbit with Distress Ink.
Here with some gorgeous new inspiration it’s over to Lisa Nygards…
Today I have two cards for you with stamps from Visible Image. The first one was meant to be for last week, but my internet died and I had no chance to get it up. It was almost going to happen again, the internet was away all day yesterday for me, but was back late afternoon. Phew.
Elegant Emma is first out on a CAS-card. Classic clean and square – perfect if you don’t like details.
The second card is kind of opposite. Lots of details, layers and decorations. It’s fun to do both styles. I’ve used Myrddin from the Myrddin Magick Set.
The edges are distressed and inked and lots of cheese cloth to add texture.
Stamps: Visible Image Elegant Emma Set and Myrddin Magick Set Papers: Maja Design Embellishments: Bling, Flowers, Cheese Cloth, Micro beads, metal flowers, Lace Tools: Edge scraper Other: Distress ink.

And if you see my misstake, just ssshhhhh (don’t tell).

Wow! Awesome journal pages Teresa! Such a brilliant project 🙂 You’ll find more of Teresa’s inspiring work over on her blog – If you love all things Wonderland, Teresa is taking part in a Wonderland blog hop today so head on over!
A slightly different take for me, I wanted it to look fresh and Spring like, and could be given as an Easter Card, so I kept the inking to a bare minimum.
I stamped the Wabbit, he is sooooo cute, with Memento, and coloured him with Promarkers, adding some glossy accents to his eyes and watch, and a glitter pen to make some faux metal buttons and around the watch.
I used very little Distress ink, just around the edges and to ground him, then stamped the Winter Tree to either side, and the sentiments that come with Wabbit.
I hope you’ve added some Visible Image creations to the ‘Show & Tell’, there’s a chance of you winning some stamps, if yours is chosen at the end of the month.
The Visible Image FacebookGroup is buzzing at the moment, come and join in, loads of inspiration, and another place to share your Visible Image creations.

For the background I used the swirl from the Galaxy set.
For the Queen I used my promarkers, for her hair, eyes, lips and jars I used clear embossing powder, on her dress and crown I used fairy dust to give some twinkle and added jewels to her crown.

Over to Kim Robertson with today’s 2nd inspiring project…
Huge Good Mornings to all…
Today’s card is something totally different and I hope you like it as it is using of course the fabulous Visible Image and their new little character of course Alice… in wonderlandand wow isn’t she a beauty.
I just loved her the minute I saw her and wanted to do a backing befitting her so I started by drawing the hole and get some dept to it with several shades of Grey promarkers , I drew the whimsical tree to create the backing with a little bunny poking his head from around the tree. Alice had to have a book of course and the tree had to have a little door and a few other little extras. I stamped out Alice and coloured her and cut her out with fussy cutting, I then added her to black card and cut her out again, I used foam to raise her from the back ground too and added a huge pocket watch and some tiny keys here and there. I stamped and cut out the sentiment from the set and added a black backing too and added it ti the top right of the card.
Here is the main image I very much was going for the whole story book image theme and I loved how this turned out looking so three -D like a story book page.
I also stamped the little cake out from the set and stamped several in a row and coloured them all with pastel colours and added them to black card and foam to add as a border for the bottom.
Here is a close up after I coloured Alice with Promarkers so you can see how gorgeous she looked. I went for a different hair colour to the traditional as I liked it with the blue dress.
And once I had her positioned on my background I just love how her hair turned out and the handrawn hole with the ladder turned out really well and gave a lot of dimension to the hole piece.
I love this sentiment too it made me smile from the first read. This launch really just screamed inspiration from the moment I saw all the gorgeousness and it is really just the beginning for this fabulous company and great friends.
You can see my tree in the background which again was Promarker coloured with several shades of Brown ( not Grey lol)
Here is a close up on the little story book scene and you can see the background also has its own mat and layers to keep it looking neat and smart and very clean but definitely not simple.
I chose a completely black and white card scheme and a hand drawn by me back ground to compliment Helen and Marks gorgeous Alice in Wonderland set I hope I did them justice and they love it as much as I do.
Ooooo the gorgeous looking cake border… yummmmm
So again here is the main Image for you to see all together.
Everyone on the team really has done some amazing work with all the stamp launches for the Stitches trade show up at the NEC last week, and lots of the work is being showcased each day here on the blog.
So for today lots and lots of love to all and I hope you are having some milder weather where you are and spring is in the air.
Best wishes to all
Woweee isn’t this fabulous! Kim is so talented drawing that fantastic scene for Alice! Superb detail and Alice looks adorable! You’ll find more of Kim’s amazing work over on her blog
Hello there! Thank you for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image stamps blog today 🙂
It’s wonderful Wednesday… wonderful because we have double Design Team inspiration for you today and the theme of the day is Wonderland!
Today I’ve played with a character that I think many of us recognise.. Alice in Wonderland. Oh, at least everyone except me then… lol. I can’t remember I read much of that book as a child so maybe I need to update myself with the story a bit.
Anyhow, you’ll find Alice and a some of her friends at Visible Image. Since I don’t know much about the story, I thought violet was a perfect color for the girl today.

Good Evening! Late post today… been rather busy preparing for something that’s happening tomorrow 😉
Firstly it’s over to Teresa for some ‘Bonkers’ inspiration with one of our NEW stamp sets!!!
I was so excited to receive some of the fantastic new release stamp sets from Visible Image – especially the Wonderland character sets – I’m secretly hoping that a few more drop through my letterbox!!!
Today I introduce the Mad Hatter to you (you may have seen a preview of him the other night in the Visible Image Facebook group).
I used black Memento ink to stamp him then coloured with Promarkers and Copics. I added some detail with a black Prismacolour pencil.
The background was created using one of the Plasma background stamps embossed with lilac embossing powder. I then over-stamped the ‘ha ha’ and used Wow flourescent yellow embossing powder.
The words were stamped with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink – the perfect shade of orange!
I hope you find this crazy character as fun and endearing as I do – both he and the background stamps are available to pre-order from 6th Feb on the website (link below).
Love Love Love this card! Teresa has captured the madness of the Hatter perfectly! More of Teresa’s awesome work can be found on herblog

Today is my first blogpost for Visible Image and I’m a bit nervous actually. I’m so happy I got the chance to create with these lovely stamps and try them out in my ”card making world”. For this card I’ve used stamps from Tala Catching Dreams Set. As you can see the words are a little bit bent, and I just looooove when it’s clear stamps and you can do that! The indian border is stamped in the corners of the bottom panel and then twice and cut out as a decoration. Tala is colored with Copics, as I almost always use for my images.

I clear heat embossed her boots and pupils too, then fussy cut her out.
For the background I used iced spruce distress ink and the Ink splats stamps and the paint splat from the painted wood setand I used a pipette to drip some red and black ink on. Matted onto black and red card and added the awesome ‘You Rock’ from the ‘Max Rocks stamp set’ love this and I heat embossed it in wow primary apple red and matted on to black card.
