Good Afternoon! We continue our weekend of inspiration here on the Visible Image blog!

Up next is Heather Mitchell with a super gorgeous wall hanging…


Hello everyone and happy Saturday to you!

Today I have a little hanging to share with you that uses so many of the gorgeous new Visible Image stamps.  They may not be that ‘in your face’ (so-to-speak!) but they are definitely there when you look a little closer.





Firstly I applied modelling paste through the ‘Fibres‘ stencil, and then added acrylic paint to give an ombre type effect.  I’ve then used the new ‘Fibonacci‘ and ‘Elemental‘ stamps’ to add extra interest while also applying some Art Alchemy wax in Brushed Iron to some of the raised texture.


The Fibonacci stamp is just awesome for background interest


The backgrounds for the florals are made using using distress oxide ink pads and the ‘Tattered Floral’ Bigz die.


Tim Holtz’s ‘Tattered Floral’ die was perfect for this project



I’ve loaded different colours onto and craft sheet, spritzed with water and dragged the card through the colour.  Once dry, you can add yet more colour and get fabulous texture before die-cutting. To add the detail onto the flowers, I’ve used the new stamps (and some of the old) to add texture and more colour and then shaped and layered then up.

The florals are joined together using brads or buttons sewn on



Once stamped, I’ve edged the florals using a Vintage Photo Distress ink pad and given them a little spritz with gold ink and splattered lightly with white gesso.





For a sentiment, I chose to use the ‘Creativity’ off the ‘Creativity’ stamp and heat embossed it onto a strip of vellum.  This was then tucked around the hanger and secured using the florals and some small dabs of hot glue under the sentiment itself.


I love the contrast in textures between the crisp vellum and the background

Teresa Morgan is up first…


You may remember my YouTube video a while back, using stamps with my Gelli plate to create fun backgrounds.

Well, this week I have teamed one of them with some brilliant word stamps from Visible Image:





I used DecoArt Media Fluid acrylics for the print, then stamped the words with Versamark ink
and embossed with black and white WOW Powders.

I added some white highlights to the ‘Create Yourself’ with a gel pen.

I love the slightly grungy feel to this card and the fact that it is totally unique – I could never repeat the background exactly.
