Shining Bright Promo


Just look at the clever designing by Mark… LOVE the rays of light over the word SHINE and the lightbulbs are awesome!


The quote is so inspiring and the words mean so much to us.. especially at the moment!

‘Don’t let someone dim your light simply because it’s shining in their eyes’

(keep moving ahead and let your light shine even brighter!)



These stamps also work brilliantly with another very popular set we released last summer…

2017-02-25 Visible Image - Shine Bright - Light bulb stamp - Nicky Gilburt

Created by Nicky Gilburt: I found my UTEE and made a quick stencil by stamping
and cutting out the lightbulb on spare card. Then, once I’d coloured it, I coated it with Versamark and got melty!
Stunning effect on the lightbulb! Thank you again Nicky ♡

Take Your Broken Wings

Hello there! Helen here with my latest card!

Hope you had a good weekend.


I have been busy creating some backgrounds ready for some of our NEW stamps! Had lots of fun with brushos, Lindy’s sprays and Dylusions paints!

I decided to use some existing stamps on one of them though, as it was calling out to me for our awesome moth stamp…
I used turquoise, yellow and red brushos for this one, and once dry I added some more water
and a touch more paint along the top, allowing it to run down my card

IMG_2264



I stamped and embossed the large moth, and then stamped two
of the small silhouette moths in black versafine

IMG_2275



I also stamped and embossed my chosen quote to make sure it stood out against the background

IMG_2280



I added a glow around parts of the moth using diluted white paint, to make it stand out more
and splattered some of the paint over my card

IMG_2300



Using some of the excess card from my background, I stamped and
embossed another large moth

IMG_2299 (1)



I coloured in the skull using a white pen then layered it on top of my original moth
using some foam pads for some extra dimension

IMG_2311



Lastly I flicked some black Lindy’s spray here and there, then matted onto black card
before adhering to my white card blank

There Is Always A Glimmer of Light

Hi there! We have some awesome inspiration for you here on the blog today from Corrie Herriman…


Hello everyone,

Welcome to the first post for Visible Image from me for 2017 ! Back in December I bought a Verday Paint kit and I couldn’t wait to try it out. It comes with 4 acrylic paints; iron, copper, brass and bronze and a bottle of patina. I used the copper on my Monolith project.



visible-image-mdf-monolith-moth-stamp-corrie-herriman

 Front of the Monolith. Love the copper with the blues and greens.



The back



Some detail



 Close up of the moth



 Close up of the texture and sentiment.


So, to make this, I started with a gessoed Monolith on which I glued some metal rings and some art stones. I then put on a coat of the copper paint. This has to dry and then I put on another coat and while this is wet I put on the patina. I love the blues and greens you get while it oxidises.


I then added some stamping to the back and heat embossed with copper embossing powder which happens to be exactly the same shade so it is only a texture I have added.


I coloured a piece of paper with blues and greens and stamped the sentiment, layered it on some black card stock and adhered to the back of my Monolith.


For the front I repeated the paint/patina steps until I was happy with the result. Next I stamped the moth on white card stock and coloured it, cut it out and adhered it to the Monolith. I used the same-ish blues and greens for the wings.


I think it turned out fab !



I used the following stamps and a Monolith of course..

Glimmer of Light Journal – Visible Image

Hello again! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration for you!

Over to Sue Davies who has a brilliant journal page to share…


Good morning, it’s my turn to share a Visible Image project with you, and I’ve been feeling very bold!  I’ve made a journal page, straight into the book without a safety net.



visible-image-glimmr-of-light-moth-stamp-journal-page-sue-davies


This is the best photograph I can get as we’re slightly lacking in the old daylight department.





This is lots of Distress Ink blended in patches, with some stencilling in the same colours.  I liked it, but boy was it bright, so I toned it down a bit with some gesso through a stencil. The edging stamp is from the Music on World Off set.





Time for some fun now in building up the background. I’ve used Ranger Archival inks to stamp my quotes from Imagine, Dream, Inspire, and there’s also circles from Universal.





I’ve been wanting to use the Glimmer of Light stamp set for a while now, but I’ve been in Halloween (thankfully gone) or Christmas (OMG it’s getting close) mode for weeks, but today was playday!





Don’t you just love this moth! He’s just stamped onto the background and coloured in places with Stabilo pencils. I stamped the light bulb into the previously stamped circle, then stamped the circle again and embossed in white.





And this is the quote, stamped and embossed with black fine EP. I’ve just highlighted bits and bobs with stencils and Portfolio pastels. This was such fun to make once I’d got over the terrors of stamping in my shiny new journal.


For lots more daily inspiration please head over to our Facebook group.


If Pinterest is your thing, you can find us here.


Have a brilliant week, and thanks very much for looking x


Isn’t this fabulous! So much awesome detail to gaze at.. Thank you Sue ♡


We’re keeping the inspiration coming today so pop back soon… and if you missed any of our recent posts you will find them HERE!

Glimmer of Light Monolith – Visible Image

Hi there, thank you for visiting us today.

Corrie Herriman is here on the blog today with a super project for you…



Hello everyone,


Today I’ll be sharing a monolith for Visible Image.

I think these are so versatile, you can decorate them any way you want…


visible-image-mdf-monolith-glimmer-of-light-moth-stamp-corrie-herriman


I gessoed this freestanding Monolith first and then glued some pieces of book text on it. I then painted it with Acrylic paints. I used yellow, orange, pink and white. Next I stamped the background with a variety of stamps and Archival Inks in the same colours as the background. The black script stamp I did later.




You can still read the book title here…. (something wicked this way comes). Next I stamped the Moth both on the Monolith and on Bristol Card stock. I coloured the one on the card stock with watercolours and then heat embossed it. The body with clear powder, the wings with holographic powder.  You can see it in the detail photo below. I also stamped the skeleton on the back of the monolith and used a white pen to highlight him here and there. I then decided it didn’t have enough white so I filled in the circles with white paint and stamped a text stamp over the top.




The moth was adhered on top of some thread for more interest.



I used the following stamp sets :
Scratch the surface

Thank you so much for stopping by today !


We love this so much Corrie! Thank you ♡

We hope you will be back soon to check out more gorgeous inspiration from our amazing team!

Glimmer of Light – Visible Image Stamps

Hello! Thanks for visiting!

Pauline is here to inspire you today with an amazing project featuring stamps from our Summer Release and our brilliant MDF Monoliths…

Hi there,
 
I thought it was about time I decorated another Visible Image Monolith, they are such fun to do, and there are endless possibilities.
 
I used one of my fave Visible Image Stamps sets, from the new releases, for this project, it’s stunning and I love it, it’s called……
Glimmer of Lightplus the fabulous Rays of Light, and the Shine Bright setyou see the theme, lol !
And of course don’t forget the fabulous MDF, which come in a pack of 5…… Monoliths.



Visible Image - Glimmer of Light - Pauline Butcher 1

I used Dylusion Paints on the front, a Black base, then combination of colours on top, then stamped the Rays, using white Ink, where I wanted the little light bulbs to hang. I then stamped the little bulbs and the sentiment in Black Versafine Ink, and heat embossed the wonderful Moth, onto card , coloured them in using Distress Inks, and fussy cut them all.
 




I added glossy accents to the bulbs, and Stickles to the Moths.



Visible Image - Glimmer of Light - Pauline Butcher 2

On the other side, again I painted the MDF in Black, added some paste through a stencil, and when it was dry, used Gilding wax to highlight it.


 I stamped the Ray into Acetate, and heat embossed it in Yellow powder, and the large light bulb, again onto acetate, and heat embossed in Black powder. I stamped some more small light bulbs using Black ink, coloured them and then fussy cut, glued them to the MDF, and used Glossy Accents.
 




I wasn’t happy with the large bulb being black, so using a white pen I highlighted the outline. The Moths were stamped with Stazon, onto Shrink Plastic, and I coloured them with crayons, fussy cut them, then heated and watched the magic happen…… 
 


I hope I have given you a bit of inspiration on how to decorate the MDF Monoliths.
 
Check out the Visible Image places below for more inspiration……

A Girl.. A Moth.. and A Skull @ Visible Image

Good Afternoon (Morning or Evening!) Hope you are well, thank you for stopping by today!


Corrie is here to inspire you with 3 fabulous postcards created with stamps from our Summer Release…



Hello everyone,

For my DT post for Visible Image today I have made a set of three cards with the new release stamps. They are fabulous and they stamp like a dream….

Here they are:


Visible Image - Mr Bone Jangles - Corrie Herriman 3


All three of these cards were created on a gelli printed background. I love my gelli plates; I can play for hours… lol
Anyway I added some stamping to the background and stamped the big skull separately on a piece of card stock that I coloured with Disstress Ink. I used Twisted Citron. I then used some pencils to add a little shading and a white paint pen to whiten his teeth. I also drew a couple of lines around the card.


I used the following stamps:




Visible Image - Tomorrow Doesn't Exist - Corrie Herriman 1


I think this is my favourite set of the new release. This image of the girl jumping is so fabulous I think. Anyway, again I added some background stamping and a single black line around the edge. The girl was stamped directly on the card and clear embossed. This makes the image a little blacker. I them stamped the sentiment, cut it out and adhered it to the card.


I used the following stamps:




Visible Image - Glimmer of Light - Corrie Herriman 1


For the last card the method was pretty much the same again; did a little background stamping. I stamped the moth and the sentiment directly on the card. I then stamped the moth again and coloured him, cut him out, added holographic embossing powder and heat set it. Look at all that sparkle… I then adhered him to the stamped image on the card.


I used the following stamps:




Here is a close up of the glittery wings…


All the cards were adhered to a white card blank and that was that !!!


Thank you so much for stopping by today !!


Thank you Corrie! ♡ Fantastic postcards and great backgrounds for these stamps!



We will be back tomorrow with more awesome inspiration… Make sure you check out our pinterest and instagram galleries too!


Come and join our Facebook group too, where you can show us what you have been creating with our stamps too.



See you tomorrow!

MDF Monoliths @ Visible Image

Hello! Thanks for visiting 🙂

We have a totally awesome project by Veerle Moreels to share with you today! You have probably already seen our brilliant MDF Monoliths which we launched in January.. they have been incredibly popular! Free-standing and reversible, they are so versatile as Veerle will show you…




Do you know the monoliths? They are beautiful MDF pieces Mark Alexander designed for Visible Image and give you so much possibilities to go and create awesome projects. Today I want to share my latest creation using a monolith. I had so much fun even more because I had beautiful new stamps from the Visible Image Summer release 2016 ^.^



Visible Image stamps - MDF Monolith - Paper Holder - Moth & Skull stamp - Veerle Moreels 2


Getting curious…you can see it start-to-finish in the video I made…





I have shown the close ups pictures in the video but I do want to share the end result here too. I bet you I’ll never forget what I need to remember ^.^


Visible Image stamps - MDF Monolith - Paper Holder - Moth & Skull stamp - Veerle Moreels    Visible Image stamps - MDF Monolith - Paper Holder - Deaths Head HawkMoth stamp - Veerle Moreels



Now, I know not everybody loves skulls…but why not make this project using only butterflies, flowers or a beautiful colored in piece and use bright colors. This idea can be made in different styles, and these monoliths give you so much possibilities. If you are looking for some inspiration, head on over to the project gallery to see what my talented teamies already made using them.


Want to go and create? Visible Image send their products without any trouble and very cheap postage too!  You can find everything in their online webshop.

How Fragile We Are 



Thank you Veerle! Such a brilliant project and a great video 🙂

We hope you are feeling inspired! If you are new to trying mixed media, Monoliths are a perfect first step as they are not too big.. just a coat of gesso or acrylic paint and you can stamp away, or simply stick your card or favourite papers onto them!


Thanks again for visiting us today and be sure to pop back soon to see what the rest of the team have been creating!
