Dream…

Hello there! We have some stunning new inspiration to share with you from Teresa Morgan…


This week I have been using my Gelli Plate to create some fun backgrounds for my stamping projects. I have prepared a video for you showing how easy it is to whip up a batch of monoprints ready to be turned into cards, journal pages, tags and more.



I took one of them and added more details with my Visible Image stamps and WOW powders embossing powder to create this cool card:

The dreamcatchers are stamped and embossed onto heat resistant acetate before being attached with 3d glue gel.








I hope you enjoyed the video, don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see more fun techniques and projects from me.

Visible Image Debut – Elina Strömberg

Hello 🙂 We are back with our second inspirational project today!

Very excited to be sharing Elina’s debut post as a Visible Image Design Team member…


Hi and Happy Wednesday!

I’m so excited to reveal my first projects as a design team member of Visible Image. I want to thank Helen and Mark, the lovely owners of Visible Image, for this opportunity- working in this talented team is a great honour!

Every other Wednesday I will be showing a new project I have made using Visible Image stamps. I hope will like my creations!


I thought I would start with a little mixed media project; two tags with pink, white and black colours:

I started with painting the tags with white gesso. Manila tags do allow you to use wet media, but a thin layer of gesso still makes the surface easier to work with. In addition, gesso is great for creating texture: I was using a large, wide brush, so once the gesso was dry the tags were covered with fine brush mark lines. Cool!

For colouring the tags I used my favourite watercolour media; water-soluable Neocolor II crayons. I coloured the tags leaving some spots white, and blended the crayons with water. To mute down the colours I brayered a thin layer of gesso on top, and once all the layers were dry I was ready to decorate the backgrounds with stamping!



Usually when decorating a background with stamping I don’t mount the stamp on an acrylic block. Creating random patterns by bending the stamp is much easier with a non-mounted stamp. However, this time I wanted to stamp with acrylic paints, and spreading just a thin layer of paint on the stamp was so much easier when the stamp was firmly on the acrylic block.

Remember when stamping with acrylic paints, gesso or gel medium always to clean your stamps right after stamping. I’m not too good at cleaning my stamps, but I never leave acrylic paint on my stamps. If the paint dries on the stamp you will not get it off and your stamp is ruined! For cleaning my stamps I like to use a very soft toothbrush; it cleans the stamp properly but yet very gently.



The black heat embossed faces were stamped using the mirroring image stamping technique. I stamped the mirrored image on fun foam and was surprised how well that worked. There’s no need to stamp on the back of my stamps anymore!



For the second tag I used the same ‘Woman INKognito’ stamp again, but as the main background colour was black/grey, I covered the image with purple embossing powder instead of black.


The lovely quotes are from a stamp set called ‘Imagine Dream Inspire’. I’m sure this set will be used for many projects in the future, it’s so versatile!
