Destination: Summer

Hello and Happy Monday to you! Hope your week has started well. We have double inspiration for you every day on the blog this week… woo hoo!

Jane Tyrrell is kicking off the week with 2 amazing projects…


Good Afternoon,

I wanted to design a card showing how the new ‘Written in the Stars’ zodiac stamps work so well with the existing Visible Image stamp range.

I used a very summery palette, although we can still only dream of summer at the moment.

To put you in the mood, how about a couple of summery photos to cheer us up from my holidays’ past




Awww, sand between you toes…what a wonderful thought.
We also regularly see freshwater crabs on Rhodes in the butterfly valley and this gave me the idea for my card….




I starting inking my background with salty ocean and and broken china distress oxide inks, using lots of water on my watercolour card. Once dry I blended on some spiced marmalade oxide ink.




I stamped lots of the fab crabs from the Zodiac Cancer set and inked them using the matching distress ink colours




I used broken china distress ink to add some stencilling to them using the Fibres stencil.




To give their shells some extra texture I added some Ranger clear rock candy crackle.




I used stamps from the Organics set as my seaweed




I stamped and embossed them using frantage..you will see the sparkle more in a later photo.




I also added some more fibres stencilling to create some “waves” in my background




I stamped some of the words from Destination Unknown and some of the fab paper boats which I fussy cut out and added the Cancer birth date details to.




I then put together my crab card…on a great adventure but with their “Destination Unknown”
I thought the crabs could “hold” the sentiments.



Here are a couple of close ups





IRL there is a lot of sparkle on my card, difficult to show in my photos but I think the close ups give you an idea.




and one final shot




I hope I have been able to show you some different ways of combining your Visible Image stamps, and may have also brought a little bit of sunshine to you on a cold winter’s day.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me.


Back soon.

Bye for now,
Jane x

Adventures Lie Ahead!

Good Evening (or morning/afternoon depending where you are in the world)!

Veerle Moreels is here to inspire you on the blog today. The stamps featured on her tag are THE perfect stamps for how we are feeling at the moment…. ‘Destination Unknown’…although we DO know the destination: PHOENIX, what will come of our first time exhibiting at Creativation is unknown!

‘Destination Inspiration’ is one of the show hashtags… we certainly hope we will be inspiring and wowing some fabulous store owners there!


If you own a store and want to find out more about stocking our stamps and stencils please get in touch!

Or if you would like your local store to stock us.. let them know!


Ok on to today’s inspiration, and another brilliant video from Veerle…




Wouldn’t it be great if sometimes we could take a peak in the future? It would make some decisions a lot easier but… it would spoil a lot of excitement too. We have to admit that sometimes not knowing what is coming is pretty exciting. And each day we get a little closer we feel the excitement grow.
For todays project…I had my video camera on again, so enjoy the video!



Stamps used:


Ink splats




Destination Unknown

You’ll find more amazing projects over on Veerle’s blog.

Destination: Unknown

Hello! Thank you for coming to check out today’s inspiration here on the blog.

Veerle Moreels has combined 3 stamp sets from our February release to create an incredible tag…


I’m sorry, I couldn’t help myself… I just had to go and make those beautiful eyes of the Face it stamps black…



And I liked what I saw ^.^   So I wanted some words to match and I went for these from the set Destination Unknown.

Perfect match for me…



So what will you do…stay on the nice side of the line or will you cross and join me on the black side?

Destination: Adventure

Hello and thank you for visiting our blog today!

We will be on the road to Peterborough shortly for our Create and Craft TV show tomorrow.

But before we go, we must share one last sample with you! Pauline has got her hands on our awesome paper planes stamps…

Hi there,


It’s Fabulous Friday, and my time to share a little Visible Image love.

Mark Alexander, designer and owner of Visible Image, will be on your screen’s tomorrow, Saturday 22nd April, on Create & Craft at 10am, do tune in to see him work his magic.
 



Here is one of the cards I created for the show…
 


 


The very cool and different stamp set I used is…

 

 
The background was Salty Ocean Distress ink, on which I rolled a scrunched up baby wipe, to make the cloud effect. I then stamped the planes and the sentiments using black Versafine, added some Picked Raspberry to the planes, then used water and a paintbrush to add the highlights, and finished off with the pen dashes. And, no glitter, hahahaha !!!!!
 



Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow to see our awesome Mark.


Hugs, Pauline xxxxx



What a fantastic background for the planes.. gorgeous clouds! Thanks Pauline ♡

Explore Discover Journey

Hi there! We hope you have had a great Easter weekend! We are back with lots of gorgeous inspiration here on the blog today.

We are kicking off with the latest project by Corrie Herriman…

Hello everyone,

and welcome to this blog post for Visible Image. This time I have made a trio of ATC’s.



The backgrounds were made with Tim Holtz’ Distress Oxide Inks. I used ‘Fossilized Amber’, ‘Peeled Paint’,
‘Spiced Marmalade’, ‘Broken China’ and ‘Cracked Pistachio’.  Next I stamped the backgrounds with Broken
China Oxide Ink and Jet Black Archival ink.


I added some doodle lines around the edges and then stamped the main images and words.
The were cut out, apart from the map which I tore out, and adhered to the cards. The word discover
was stamped directly onto the card. I added some twine around the middle card and adhered all
three to a piece of water colour card stock. Makes a nice panel I think…

That was it. Here are some close ups:
