Ballerina Journal

Hi there! We are back with more awesome inspiration for you!

Teresa is here to share a fantastic journal page today…


Good afternoon – can you believe it’s almost Easter??? Spring seems to have arrived here in my part of the UK,
the blossom is out on the trees, daffodils are blooming and green leaves are budding all around the garden….

Today I have a journal page to share with you using the beautiful ballerina from the Born To Perform set of stamps.





I prepped my page with gesso then added some patches of yellow paint. Red and black Distress inks
were used through some punchinella stencils to create the dots. Layers of stamping were added next,
using the stars and words from the set.

Once my background was complete I used Archival Jet Black ink to stamp the dancer and the stars (from the Feel The Beat set), adding some Stickles to the stars for sparkle!!

Love this card! Fabulous colours and the ‘grungy’ feel works so well with our inky ballerina! Thanks Teresa ♡

Born To Perform

Hello and thanks for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today.

Pauline Butcher is here with an incredible canvas that we proudly showcased on our Create and Craft TV show last month!

Hi again,

I’m back sharing a project I’ve made, using some fantastic Visible Image Stamps.


 

The stamp set I used on this canvas was…

Born to Perform

 

Such a stunning set of stamps to play with.

I found some bits of lace, and other stuff, glued them to the canvas, then got out my Ink sprays
and Dyna Acrylic paints, and played at being Picasso, lol !!!!

I used a Mirror image stamping technique, to add the Ballet dancers.

 

 

As you can see from the tutu’s, I used plenty of glitter and seed beads, to give them lots of dimension,
and I added gold Stickles to all the stamped stars.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of white card, and fussy cut.

Thanks for visiting, hugs, Pauline xxxx



The detail on this is stunning! And wow those tutus ♡ Thank you Pauline it’s amazing!

You will find more of Pauline’s fabulous cards and projects over on her blog.

Born To Perform

Hi there! We have so much fabulous inspiration coming your way here on the blog today.

Our Born To Perform set has been incredibly popular and our Design Team are loving it too!

Teresa Morgan is here on the blog today with a gorgeous card she has created with this stamp set…


Thanks so much to you all for the amazing response you have given to all of us at Visible Image over the past month –
Helen and Mark have put together an amazing collection of stamps to mix and match with the existing range,
and the team has been bursting with inspiration. We also would love to say a big hello and thank you to all the new
Facebook group members who have been proudly sharing their awesome projects with everybody – we all love to see what you are making!!!

Anyway, on to my project for this week – I have been playing with the fabulous Born to Perform set and my Brushos!!




I used Versamark ink and white embossing powder to stamp the words across the background. This acted as a resist
for the Brushos which I sprinkled lightly over the card then spritzed with water to release the colour.

Can you guess which colours I used??? Surprisingly only two – black and gamboge.
I love the rainbow effect these created as the colours split and blended!



The ballerina is stamped and embossed onto heat resistant acetate and attached with Pinflair Glue gel
so that she is ‘floating’ over the background. I added a few black iridescent gems to her tutu to add some
dimension and a subtle touch of bling. I finished by adding a shadow to the words using a fineliner pen.



I know a lot of you own Brushos – why not have a play with them this week along with your new stamps
and share in the Facebook group – we can’t wait to see what you create.

Born To Dance

Hi there! So sorry our blog has been neglected of late! It has been a crazy busy time with the UK trade show last week and our TV show next week!

Pauline is here today to share some absolutely stunning inspiration with you…

Hellooooo,
 
I’ve used another of those awesome new Visible Image stamp sets for my share for this week,
the beautiful ‘Born to Perform‘ set.



2017-02-25 Visible Image - Ballerina stamp - born to perform - Pauline Butcher


I have kept it quite plain, as I wanted the ballerina to really stand out, so I stamped the image using Versamark,
and heat embossed it using black embossing powder, then just using a couple of colours of Distress ink,
I blended them around her. I added the stars and the sentiments, again heat embossing with black.




Then came the fun bit, blinging it up, lol….. Stardust Stickles inside the stars,
and on top of the Tutu, whilst the Stickles are still wet, I added soome different coloured glitters.
 
 
I am holding another ‘Pauline’s Inky Workshop’, 
in Warwick, on Sunday March 12th, 10am – 4pm, £25 per person,
we will be making 3 colourful cards using various inky techniques,
 along with some awesome Visible Image Stamps, some Donna Downy stencils, and some Stamps by Ryn.
Please contact me if you are interested ……. robingphipps@msn.com 
 
Thanks for visiting, hugs, Pauline xxxxx
