Visometry @ Visible Image

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog today.

Pauline Butcher is here with some superb inspiration for you…

Hellooooo,

It’s Fabulous Friday, and my day to share a project I’ve created, using some of the awesome Visible Image stamps.



2017-01-13 Visible Image stamps - Visometry - spirograph stamp - inspire - Pauline Butcher


The stamps I’ve used on this card are…

The flowers : large and medium sizes of  Flowers shapes from Visometry,
The stamps on the background, and at the bottom are from De-Stressed,
 again on the background I used some Ink Splats,
 the sentiment is from Imagine, Dream, Inspire,
and the butterfly is from Own kind of Beautiful.
 
For the background, I put some Picked Raspberry & Wilted Violet distress inks onto a glass mat, spritzed them with water, and squidged my card into them, I did this 2 or 3 times, drying the card in-between to stop it going muddy. when this was all dry, with my distress tool, I added a touch of Squeezed lemonade DI to the edges, and a bit in the middle. Next, I stamped using the dots and Mustard Seed DI, and some of the ink splats using purple Starlight paint.




On a piece of black card, I stamped all the flowers, (6 small 1 large) using Versamark, and then heat embossed using Pink and Purple embossing powder from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. I fussy cut them out and thn decided to add a white medium flower to the centre of the large one.


I also added some Stardust Stickles to the flowers.
 



I stamped the Butterfly again using Versamark, and heat embossed it using a Black embossing powder, coloured it using Distress inks, and fussy cut it. The stems of the flowers are drawn using a Yellow Sharpie pen.
 

Thanks for visiting, hugs, Pauline xxxxx

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:



 2016-01-27 Visible Image stamps - Imagine - Inspire - Inky Woman - Elina


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!

Inspired By Flowers – Visible Image stamps

Good Afternoon 🙂 We’re back with our 3rd post today!

Visible Image stamps - Inky Flower stamp - Inspire - Kim Johnny


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:
