The background was created using Brusho’s, the sprinkle and spritz method, onto some white 7.5″ x 7.5″ card, whilst it is still wet, place a harlequin design stencil on top and dry through it with kitchen roll, remove the stencil, and leave the card to dry naturally.
The eye needs to be stamped twice, onto heatproof acetate using Versamark, and heat emboss it using Black embossing powder, then fussy cut them both out. Turn one eye over thus making a pair.
On the reverse side of the eyes, (remembering that one will have the embossing on the front, and one the embossing on the back) colour the iris with alcohol pens, then paint over the eyes with white gesso, ( you might need to do 2 coats) so when you turn them over to the front, you have a coloured iris, and whites of the eyes.
Pop these to one side, whilst you complete the background.
Right, on your now dry background card, place the eyes in a position you’re happy with, but don’t glue them yet, you can gauge how much card you have left to decorate, remove the eyes, using the INKognito flower head, stamp the bottom half of the card using ‘Mustard seed’ Distress ink, then stamp over again with ‘Ripe Persimmon’, giving a sort of 3D look.
Using the longest bit of the flower stamp splats, stamp around the top of the card using ‘Salty Ocean’.
Now attach your eyes, using glue, you can see where to stamp your sentiment, and using Versamark, and heat emboss with White Embossing powder.
Now the eyebrows, (which is the Inkognito Flower Stem), stamp using ‘Mustard Seed’, then stamp again using ‘Salty Ocean’.
To finish off, add some white pen as the light source in the eye, use some Black Stickles around the eye, and yellow Stickles in the middle of the flowers for that bit of bling.
Have a look at the January Visible Image ‘Show and Tell’, and get your entry in, for a chance to win some fantastic stamps, and there’s some really awesome new designs coming out very soon.

We hope you will have a go a creating yourself a pair of Visible Image eyes.. and make sure you show us over in our Facebook group!!!
We will be back tomorrow with some super Saturday inspiration from Susanne Rose.
This is a really quick and very elegant card! I used the Crealies Double Stitched Frame die and cut a rectangle shape from white cardstock. I masked a frame arround the base with washi tape, so that the stamped images don’t go close to the edges. I stamped the Butterflies with Distress Inks. I used “Dusty Concord”, “Picked Raspberry” and “Spiced Marmalade”. Finally I stamped the sentiment “Live Life Now” with StazOn “Jet Black” ink into the center. I mount everything with 3d foam pads to a white card.
I’ve had really fun and made a Canvas for today! Lovely to play around with colors and make a big mess sometimes. I’ve used the Vision INKognito (eye) and the sentiment from the set Behind Every Mask. Think they fit well together.
I’ve used only acrylic colors I think, and the white dots are heavy modeling paste. The eye is stamped on tissue paper and glued with decopage laque. The green in the eye is painted with pitt pastel pens when the decopage glue was dry. The size of the canvas is 6″ x 6″.
I have used the beautiful Angels Are Near stamp set to create a Christmassy mixed media canvas.
To begin, I covered the canvas with some music print paper, torn around the edges. Then I added some gesso around the sides to soften the paper edges, and in random areas over the paper. Once dry I stamped the feather and embossed in white all over the canvas. I wanted a metallic edge to the feathers, so inked the stamp again (but only on the edges) and stamped over the top of the white embossing powder, adding copper embossing powder this time.
I drew a simple angel on some cardstock and painted with acrylic paint then cut out and glued in place. Next I stamped the sentiment, cut out and glued on to the angel.
Finally I used some Pumice Stone Distress Ink around the edges of the canvas to age it and take away some of the whiteness of the gesso.
Wow! Amazing work that showcases our gorgeous stamps brilliantly… thank you ♡

Good Afternoon 🙂 We’re back with our 3rd post today!
This time Kim Johnny is here to share her first Visible Image DT creation…
I hope you are having a bright and happy day so far!
Today is my first post featuring a project I made for the Visible Image Design Team! I am so excited and so nervous! The stamps are brilliant and I really really hopeyou like my project!
When you have a moment hop over to check out the awesome shop, Visible Image stamps do not disappoint! They are fabulous. I really enjoyed making this canvas with the stamps I was sent, thank you Helen & Mark!
The canvas is about 6 1/2 inches wide and about 12 inches tall.
As soon as I saw this stamp, Flower INKognito, I knew I wanted to do a repeating pattern. I used Ranger White Super Fine embossing powder to keep as much detail as possible.
I stamped onto Bristol paper, and inked with Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio for the bright colors.
The bottom layer is stamped using Ink Splats and clear embossed. The sentiment is one of my absolute favorites, (come back next week to see more of my new favorites)!! It is part of the Imagine, Dream Inspire set, as real must-have 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
There is lots of fun at Visible Image and many ways to keep up with all the new releases and exciting makes from the whole team. I hope you join and play along soon. Here is a list of where you can find all the best Visible Image spots:

Sorry for missing yesterday’s post (seems to be becoming a habit!) but it’s for a very good reason… Loads of orders from our awesome customers keeping us extremely busy!!! Thank you <3
So here’s Pauline’s ‘Fabulous Friday’ post which, if you follow Pauline’s blog, you will have seen yesterday!
Hey my crafty friends, how are you?
Another week has flown by, and I’ve been busy creating, as usual.
I was having a bit of sort out, and found my Alcohol inks, so have been playing with them, I love their bright juicy colours, and of course they are the perfect match with some awesome Visible Image Stamps.
Using a Distress Ink blending tool with a piece of felt, I put 3 colours of Alcohol ink onto the felt, and a drop of Blending Fluid, then pounced over a piece of 8″x 8″ white gloss card.
For the first card I cut a 5″ x 5″ piece from the pattered card I had just made, and stamped the flower and stem using Versamark, and heat embossed using Black powder, then using the Happy Birthday stamp, did the same. a little bit of mat and layering onto a 6″ card blank and some Stickles, and hey presto……..
The second card was the left over pieces of the card I had coloured, and again using the same stamps and versamark, but this time using a black sparkle embossing powder, adding Stickles to finish. 2 Very simple cards made.
The Visible Image stamps used on these two cards were…
This was a tag I made for the lovely Mrs Awesome, (aka) Helen, as she was feeling very under the weather with ‘manflu’ last week caught from Mr Awesome himself, Mark, the owners of Visible Image Stamps.
I made this tag in the same way as before, but instead of pouncing the ink, I dragged and weaved my tool onto the card, giving a sort of wavy effect, I stamped the Inkognito butterfly, and heat embossed in black powder again, I then stamped the large butterfly with Versamark and heat embossed, onto a small piece of heat resistant acetate, and fussy cut it, fixing it above the butterfly on the tag, a sentiment and some mat and layers, and of course Stickles to finish.
A new months ‘Show and Tell’ has started for May, so get your entries in for a chance to win some fantastic stamps, details HERE.

Good Afternoon 🙂 We are back with our second inspirational post today!
Over to the awesome Amber Kroening…
Hello! I’m back again with another Visible Image card to share. I used my two favorite Visible Image collections on this card; Express Yourself, and INKognito. I started by stamping the Speckle Background stamp with several different ink colors onto a white card front. I stamped my sentiment and flower in black ink, and used Black Soot Distress Ink to ink the edges, and adhered it to a pink card base.
I used my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to add sparkle to the card base, and the flower center. I must say this is my favorite glitter pen EVER. It’s actually a brush, so you can put it on in a fine line, or a thick line. It’s hard to photograph but it looks really amazing on projects.
