Make Every Moment Count

Hi there! Hope Monday has been gentle on you! We have another week full of wonderful projects to come here on the blog. We are kicking off the week with some challenge inspiration from Veerle Moreels…

 

It’s the start of a new month so there’s a new monthly challenge over in the Visible Image Facebook group. And this month’s challenge theme is: A splash of color.


Now you all know me…my favorite color is black but just a splash of black … I didn’t want to do that so I chose to make my background black and of course I had a beautiful set of words chosen to match this challenge.




Now for my splash of color I went for… the beautiful colors on the wings of a dragonfly. I stamped the dragonfly on two layers of 300 gr. watercolor paper. Of course I used my watercolors to color him in and then I’ve cut it out using an exacto knife.  By using two layers of watercolor paper I created some dimension.



 

And it was hard to catch it on photo but my wings have a subtle layers of glitter. I had an extra light on it to try and catch it here…




And here it is… my splash of color. Had to add some black splashes too ^.^




We are looking forward to seeing all of your colored splashes… so don’t hesitate to let yourself go and come on over to the group to share your projects and color our days ^.^

 

Stamps used:


Live in the Moment




Ink splats




Somewhere in Time

Past – Present – Future

Hi there! Thanks so much for coming to check out today’s inspiration here on the Visible Image blog!

We mentioned yesterday that Veerle has now got her hands on our NEW stamps, so here is her very first project with them…



I am here with some inspiration for this month’s DIMENSION challenge here at Visible Image. Today I’m only using paper, some metal wire and a bit of gaze to add my structure…




I stamped both words (past and future) and my sentiment on some thicker paper, cut it out to glue it back on again. Might sound a bit silly but it does help to create some depth 😉

To put my word Future in the spotlight I layered it on top of a gear diecut ( two layers of 300 gsm watercolor paper) To ground this element I have put some bandage underneath that was secured again with some metal wire as I did with my sentiment




Yes, my future is looking very bright with this golden watercolors ^.^




Now…this is just a first project with the new stamps Visible Image will be releasing on June 9th. Loads more to come as I have so many ideas in my head. You should CHECK THEM OUT as they open so many possibilities. Just go and read all those beautiful words…<3

Trying To Find Some Colour

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog!

Veerle Moreels is here sharing her latest Design Team project today…






I love the project I’m showing today …if I may say so.  And that has all to do with this word stamp from Visible Image of course.

How true can this one be…tell me… how black and white can this world sometimes be. How often do you find yourself standing opposite of something or someone, wishing you could just knock it right down on the floor?

But you should never forget there is always that tiny bit of color, even if it’s not visible at that same difficult moment…it really is there <3





Stamps Used:


Black and White World


Scripted Streets



Wow! Stunning tag! Love your interpretation of this quote Veerle, thank you ♡

The Battles We Have Won

Hello! We have some super gorgeous inspiration here on the blog today from Veerle Moreels…

 

2017-02-11 Visible Image - crack stamp - mixed media tag - Veerle Moreels

 

For my previous project I shared a video tutorial where I worked with one of the new word stamps Visible Image released called ‘Scars’  Well today I would like to sneak in and show a second project I made using the same stamp ^.^ I can’t help it…I just think it’s such a beautiful stamp.

I needed some structure this time and ended up with this mixed media tag…

Sparkle At Christmas – Visible Image stamps

Hey there 🙂 We’re back with more fantastic inspiration this evening.

Kim Johnny is here to share here latest project…

Happy Sunday!

I have another fun tag to share today, made with awesome Visible Image stamps. Thanks for coming by to have a peek!


2015-11-22 Visible Image stamps - Christmas tag - sparkle at Christmas - Kim Johnny

My absolute most favorite thing about Christmas are the sparkly lights! I love all the variety of lights and really wish I could keep them up all year. So when Visible Image introduced this awesome Christmas set, I was in love! The set is “Sparkle at Christmas”. The star bursts are so fun to stamp with and will work all year long on many projects, so flexible!

I added lots of layers on top of the manila tag, including a painted book page and tissue.

The tree is cut from a page that did not work out as I had hoped, but loved the color and I never toss any papers, they always come in handy.

Mixed Media Tag – Visible Image stamps

Hello 🙂 Thank you for visiting our blog today.

Susanne Rose is here to inspire you this evening with an amazing mixed media tag…



Hi everyone! It’s my day to inspire you with some of the awesome and so unique Visible Image Stamps. I did a mixed media tag and used one of my favourite Images: The Cheshire Cat:


Visible Image stamps - Wonderland Cheshire Cat - Susanne Rose


The background is a gelli print. I had a failed one and tried to rescue it. I am very happy with the result. Here are some step by step instructions on how you can turn a mud gelli print into a great background:



That was my background and I didn’t like it, so I used a bit of gesso at first:



I added some oranges with my Neocolor II watercolor pastels and the Portfolio watersoluble oil pastels:



Now I removed the color through a stenicl (this one is Bubbles from ARTplorations) with a wet baby wipe:



Now I used my homemade tag stencil to cut out the tag:



After cutting it out I stamped some interest with the script stamp from the Visible Image Revolution Set using Archival Jet Black Ink.



Before I stamped the lovely cat, I painted some gesso to lighten up my background:






The Cheshire Cat is colored with Neocolor II. I added some interest with a white and black UNIPosca Marker.

Stamps from Visible Image:

How awesome is that! Thanks for the brilliant tutorial Susanne.  Imagine a whole set of Wonderland tags  in this style 🙂

You’ll find more of Susanne’s fantastic work over on her blog.

We will be back tomorrow for another week packed full of Visible Image stamps inspiration from our amazing team!
