In the Spotlight

Hello! We have some fabulous inspiration from Teresa Morgan for you here on the blog this evening…


It’s Thursday, and it’s Visible Image time once again. I have another card using stamps and another new stencil.. this time it’s the Strobes design, and I created a spotlight effect for this card.




I coloured my card with Mustard seed Distress Ink leaving a white area in the middle. I blended a little Twisted Citron around the edges to darken slightly. Then I placed the sencil on the card and went over it all with Black Soot Distress Ink, keeping it lighter in the centre to create my spotlight effect.




I used WOW powders fluorescent colours to emboss the other images – I love how the colours pop against the background.



Products Used:


Strobes




Sing




Feel The Beat




Wow! What a stunner! Thanks Teresa ♡
The strobes stencil looks amazing with our singer!

Disguise of A Smile

Good Evening! We are back with more fabulous inspiration. It’s Friday which means Pauline Butcher is here with another super gorgeous card…


Hello everyone,

It’s Fabulous Friday again, and time for me to share some ‘Visible Image’ Love.


I was so excited to receive some of the awesome new Visible Image stencils to play with, it will give an awesome new dimension to the already fantastic Visible Image stamp designs,
well done Mark Alexander (designer extraordinaire).




The background of this card was created using Brushos.


The stencil I’ve used is called Fibres




and the stamps I’ve used are:

Sing




Disguise of a Smile




I sprinkled yellow and red Brusho’s onto the card, spritzed it with water, and added more Brusho to get a nice intense colour. After drying it, I then used the stencil: I went over the whole card with Festive Berries Distress Ink, using a blending tool, this gave a nice ‘hot’ feeling.




I stamped the microphone using Oxide ink, but it sort of disappeared into the background, again I dried it all. I then stamped the beautiful singer using Versamark, and heat embossed her with Black Glint embossing powder, I also did the same with the SING sentiment.





I felt the new ‘Disguise of a Smile’ sentiment went quite well with this image, and I heat embossed it with white powder. To finish off, using a quickie glue pen, and glitter, I gave her a sparkly dress.




Mark and I are back on Create & Craft TV next Friday 8th September at 7pm, and again on Saturday 9th September at 9am. we will be demoing some of the fabulous new Visible Image products.


Thanks for popping in.
Hugs, Pauline xxxx

So Incredibly Precious

Hi there! Pauline Butcher is here on the blog with some fabulous musical inspiration this evening…

Hello my Lovelies,
 
I am back from my super holiday, two weeks of total relaxation, it was bliss!

I did miss getting inky whilst away but, and as it’s Fabulous Friday, I got myself messy to decorate an MDF tag, using some awesome Visible Image stamps.
 



 

I coated the MDF tag with black gesso, dried it, then added a layer of Crackle medium, when it was tacky, I painted a coat of white gesso over it, and watched the crackle appear !!!

Using some Archival inks through a stencil, I created the light beams over the crackle, then stamped the small butterflies onto the MDF using Versamark, and heat embossed with some Wow glitter embossiing powder. I also added some gilding flake randomly for some extra sparkle.
 



 
 
 On a piece of card, I stamped the Singer and the small butterflies using versamark, and heat embossed them, the Singer with black embossing powder and the butterflies with glitter embossing powder again from wow, then I fussy cut them all, and stuck them onto the tag using Pinflair glue gel. 





The stamps I used for this project are…


the singer from the Sing set




the butterflies from the Live Life Now set




and one of the sentiments from the Somewhere in Time set




 

I have another Inky Workshop in Warwick on Sunday 30th July, 10am – 4pm, £25 per person,
for more details please email me: robingphipps@msn.com
 


Thanks for visiting,
Hugs Pauline xxxxx

Born To Sing

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


Hello everyone,

Today for my DT post for Visible Image I have made a card with easily my most favourite Visible Image stamp ever !

It is the singer… I love her.



This was a really easy card to make.. I started off with a piece of white card stock and I stamped the flower on it repeatedly with Distress Oxide Inks. With these inks you can just stamp over the top of the flowers with any colour. It won’t turn to mud.

When this was done I cut out a square to fit my card; I chose the piece I liked best.

I then stamped the singer 3 times using a stamping tool so she is nice and black. I used the Tim Holtz stamping platform which is ideal for these solid images..


I stamped the sentiment which is made out of two different stamp sets.  After everything was dry and to my liking I matted the panel onto black card stock and then on a white card.


I used the following stamps:


Fabulous card Corrie thank you ♡ Great combination of stamps and love the flower stamped with oxides!
