Shine Bright

Good Evening! We are back with our final post today which comes from Pauline Butcher…

Hi there,
 
Another week has passed and it’s Fabulous Friday once again, so my day to share something I’ve created using some awesome Visible Image Stamps.
 

I had a Workshop planned for last Sunday, but as we had snow, I decided it was better to cancel it, to keep everyone safe.

Three of the Crafters were all together, so I challenged them to make an ATC (Artist Trading Card, which are 2.5″ x 3.5″ ), to use 3 colours plus Black, 2 stencils, and some Visible Image Stamps, and to also add some dimension.

Their creations were fabulous, but I decided to expand the one I made, into four and mount them, so here is the result…

 






The stamps I’ve used are…



and the stencils I have used are…


Top Left:


Strobes



Stars & Stripes (with paste through),



Top Right:


Time Tunnel (with paste through)



and Geometric Maze



Bottom Left: 

Cosmic Skies (with paste through)



and Fibres



and lastly Bottom Right: 

Fibres again


and Distorted Chess (with paste through)


 



I used Distress inks, the images were all stamped onto white card, and heat embossed, and the light bulbs were stamped onto acetate and heat embossed.



 


I hope you’ll have a go at some ATC’s, they are so addictive to make, and fabulous to get you back into stamping, if you’ve lost your mojo for some reason.
 

Thank you for popping in.

Hugs, Pauline xxxxx

Glimmer of Light

Hello! Thank you for visiting our blog today!

Elisa Ablett is here with awesome inspiration…


Hi everyone,

I am here on the blog today with a mixed media canvas made with the backing board from an old paper pad, I love to repurpose items when i get a chance.


I loved the look of this stamp set when I first saw it, so versatile and a little bit grungy for those art journal pages and canvases and a fantastic verse to use as well.





To create the stamped moths I used Dina Wakely scribble sticks rubbed directly onto the stamp and spritzed with water and then stamped on watercolour cardstock. I added a darker colour over the top to add dimension and then once dried, I added highlights with Glossy Accents. I get a fantastic impression with Visible Image stamps each and every time.


The background was created using beautiful Turquoise and Gold Metallic Wax from Finnabair. The Gold wax was rubbed through the Strobe Stencil to create rays of light behind the light bulb.


A friend gave me a few pieces of black cardstock that had been embossed with a 3D hexagon pattern, I fussy cut them up and stuck them to my background which i had painted black. Then i rubbed the turquoise wax all over the background and added the Strobe Stencil along with Gold Wax.

 

 

 


I wanted to show you the amazing colour you can get from a few coats of the waxes when they hit the sunlight! look at that blue, just gorgeous.  Makes those stamps pop!


Here are the Visible Image stamps that I utilised for this project.





Well that’s it from me today, thanks for stopping by the blog 🙂


Hugs xx
Elisa




LOVE this Elisa! The gold wax looks incredible against that deep blue.. awesome canvas!

Close Your Eyes

Hello! We hope you are having a great weekend.

Veerle Moreels is here on the blog this evening with this stunning tag made for a feature in Creative Stamping magazine last year…





There is something about closed eyes. They can hide so much. You can choose to close your eyes because you want to hide your feelings, you can close your eyes because you don’t want to be part of something you see or actually close them to gather all your strength to face something your need to. Or you can just close your eyes to give you peace of mind, it can take you out of this world and give you a chance to calm down and relax…




Close your eyes… it gives you the chance to see yourself.





Materials list

300 gsm watercolor paper
Black cardstock
Ink: Versafine – black, Memento-Rich cocoa
Watercolours: Sennelier – Warm sepia , Winsor&Newton – Perylene violet
Ranger Texture paste
Gold metalfoil ( Pébéo-Ranger- IndigoBlu mega flakes…)
Glue for metal foiling (Pébéo – Tombow multi mono liquid glue-IndigoBlu Flitterglu…)
Ranger Cut -‘n-dry foam
Black embossing powder
Heatgun
Bandage (plain bandage –sterile gaze bought at the pharmacist)



Instructions:

  • Cut a tag out of the watercolor paper sized 11cm on 22cm and color it with a light wash of both watercolors. You can let it air dry or heat it with a heatgun to speed up the drying process*
  • When your tag is dry put some antistatic powder down and stamp the face onto the tag using the black Versafine. Quickly cover it with the heat embossing powder and heat set**
  • Lay down some texture paste from the top to the bottom and let it dry. Once it’s dry color the texture paste with a light wash of both water colours. When this layer is dry you can lay down a more concentrated layer of color next to the texture paste to get some more depth.
  • Cut a piece of Cut-‘n-Dry foam and lay down some glue used for metal foiling onto it. Work it into your foam using a palette knife. This is the stamp pad you will use to ‘ink’ up the stars. Ink up your stamp with the glue and stamp it onto your paper as you would when using ink. Don’t hold it to long onto your paper or it will stick and you will tear the paper. Just stamp and lift. When you have structured watercolor paper you could stamp it a second time using a stamping tool. Cover your stamped image with the golden metal foil and burnish before removing it.

Make sure to clean your stamp in between if necessary using some water. When you are done with the stamp clean it off immediately using some water ( cold or hot depending on the glue you used. Wash your cut-‘n-dry foam if you don’t need it any longer.)

  • Put some glue onto a piece of plastic and pick up just a tiny bit with your palette knife. Wipe this over your structure paste to make some parts sticky so you can lay down some golden metal foil here too.
  • Cut a piece of plain bandage and color it with both watercolors. When this is drying stamp your sentiment on some paper . I have added some light touches of colour here too.
  • Using a needle, toothpick,… you can put tiny dots of glue onto your tag to add some little golden accents. I have also splattered some tiny dots of both water colours onto the background.
  • When the bandage is dry adhere it behind your words. Ink up the edges of the tag before gluing it down onto the black base. Only thing left is to adhere the words to finish off the tag.


*TIP: if you work onto watercolour paper and use a lot of water you could see that your paper starts wrinkling or bending. When it’s dry to the touch you can put it in between some papers and lay it under something very heavy to get it straight. In the meanwhile you can stamp words or do some coloring.


**TIP: to get the eyes and nose-mouth spaced out correctly, lay down the printed sheet underneath your stamping block and place the stamps on the right place on your acrylic block.



Stamps Used:


Face it




Believe in Unicorns




Own it




This is such a beautiful tag, the delicate colours and the gorgeous layering is stunning! Thank you Veerle ♡

You’ll find more amazing projects over on Veerle’s blog.

We Are Fragile

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

Heather Mitchell has cleverly combined 2 of our NEW stamp sets to create a stunning card…

Hello Everyone…

You’ll all know, as crafters/artists, that when you find a product you love that it’s really hard not to use it in all your makes… and that’s kinda how I feel about the gorgeous ‘How Fragile’ and ‘Organics’ stamps from Visible Image.



The colours are bright and unashamedly bold


I wanted to make to make a card using both stamps and so to begin, I heat embossed the smashed stamp in Wow!’s British Summertime embossing powder which is a gorgeous grey colour.

To join the stamps up was a little tricky but I used the Tonic/Tim Holtz stamping platform (which enabled me to line the ‘Organics’ stamps exactly where I wanted them) and then I carefully joined the two stamps together using a Wow! embossing pen to make it look like a natural flow.




‘Organics’ flows seamlessly into the cracked glass from ‘How Fragile’.


Before adding the colour, I’ve dabbed the Fibonacci stamp around to add some extra detail and heat embossed it in bright white, so it contrasts with the other stamps.  Then comes the fun part… getting inky!


Distress Spray Stains have been used for the vibrant colour


I loved adding the colour.  I’ve spritzed the watercolour paper so it draws the colour into it and used a pipette to drip the colour into the specific areas, using a paintbrush for the smaller compartments.


Before adding the sentiment, I’ve spritzed some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Crocheted Doily  and a light flick of watered down gesso.   The sentiment itself is heat embossed onto a grey/black washed background and added to the card using foam tape.   To finish, matt onto black card and then onto a card blank.



I particularly love the colour in this card… I’m all about the bright colours at the moment (I think it’s because I’m bored of the grey, dreary days of Winter).



Here’s the Visible Image stamps I used for this card:


How Fragile We Are




Organics




Fibonacci


Do browse the Visible Image Blog to see all the other DT’s projects and makes… they are all stunning!!


That’s all from me… see you next time!

Amazing card Heather.. very clever stamping and loving the pinks and oranges! Definitely brightening up the dreary day here!! Thank you ♡

Bloom and Grow

Hi there! We have loads of amazing inspiration coming your way over the next few days!

First up on the blog today is Lisa Taggart with an incredible project featuring our NEW ‘Bloom and Grow’ stamp set.. a really ‘alternative’ baby set…


Hello everyone it’s Visible Image day again! Today’s piece was briefly shared on the day of the 2018 new stamp launch in early January. It’s also been lucky enough to travel to Creativation! Time now  to share it in a little more detail.



6681621D-AE3A-4591-A983-43532910FDA3



Here are the stamp sets I used. Firstly the new set:


Bloom and Grow


AF784A6F-5B8D-4A69-B45B-3ACFE1932A0C



And some older favourites:


Leave Your Fears




Create it




To create the piece the baby image was heat embossed in black on to watercolour card and then masked using masking fluid. The background was sprayed using a mixture of ink sprays including mica sprays. I wanted the area around the image to be bright and to gradually darken into a mix of colours. I used a bright yellow acrylic ink for the centre. I liked the textures created by the sprays.

The finger print was stamped in black and then again using stamping glue. Gilding flakes were added on top. It wasn’t entirely successful but from certain angles the gold flecks shine through.

To create the roots I selected two elements from the other sets. These, along with the leaves and ‘love’ sentiment were heat embossed in black. I also sprinkled some granules of black embossing power either side of the image to create more texture.

The masking fluid was removed and the flower in the centre coloured pink. I blended distress oxide ink in blue and black around the edges. Some extra aqua tint ink in gold and black was flicked for good measure!

The artwork was mounted onto complimentary card. The sentiment stamped, inked and mounted underneath as the final touch.

A little different I think you will agree!


I recommend these stamps. Lovely quality and very versatile.


Until next time.

Creativation 2018

Hello there! Firstly let us apologise for neglecting our blog for the past few weeks.. Creativation was AMAZING for us! We met so fantastic people, and we had so many orders from fabulous stores in the USA, Canada, Denmark and even Australia while we were there!

Sadly when we got back to the UK we were both struck down with a very nasty flu, which literally knocked us off our feet for a week! So between that and packaging all the orders, we have had little time for anything else..

We are therefore playing ‘catch up’ here on the blog for the next few weeks, as we have so many amazing projects from our awesome Design Team to share with you! But we first we want to show you how our booth came together…




We love how our walls turned out!




Mark remembered to pack his spirit level!!




Hands up if you LOVE these stamps!




Our colourful corner of the very large hall !




We were incredibly proud of our stand!


Thank you again to our wonderful team for all your outstanding samples which were adored ♡



We’ll be back very soon with the first of many incredible projects created with our NEW stamps!

Special Moments

Hello! Not long to go now until we close for the Christmas holidays for some much needed rest and lovely family time!

We have some wonderfully magical inspiration here on the blog for you today from Jane Tyrrell…



Today is my last design team inspiration piece for the year for Visible Image. The next time I am back with some Visible Image inspiration will be in January when we will be starting to showcase their totally awesome new stamps!


For today I thought that I would weave a little Christmas magic and share a final post of our wonderful Disneyland Paris trip with Daisy. This is the second art journal “Moment” I made to remember this magical holiday.


For this art journal Moment I chose to capture the memories of the Princess lunch we enjoyed…



We were visited by the gorgeous Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White and Belle..

           



Daisy was totally entranced and honestly believed we were in the company of the real deal. The princesses were so professional and treated our darling sweetheart like a real princess. They really took the time to talk to her, sign her autograph book, pose for photos and admire the Princess Anna dress she was wearing.



I decided to use the photo of Daisy with Cinderella for my focal for my Moment as think it shows the the pure joy on our little sweetheart’s face. I fussy cut it out as I wanted it to become part of the background



I added some infusions and distress oxide ink to my mixed media card to start to create a magical background. Salty Ocean is a great Cinderella colour, perhaps I might rename mine Cinderella Blue!


I added some gold ink through the Strobes stencil


to create some star bursts



I stamped and gold embossed the clock swirl from the Ahead of our Time stamp set several times




as a reminder of that moment in time with the Princesses.


I also stamped stars from Universal



 to add a little more magic



and also some celebratory bubbles using those from  the Dare to Swim stamp set




The 2 quotes I used were

‘Make a Wish’ from Own it!



and






So here is my finished Moment..





I hope that when Daisy is older she can look back and remember the day she met her real Princesses and remember the Moments I have stored for her in Jane’s Journal. You can see just how versatile Visible Image stamps and stencils are for everything, including art journalling and mixed media work. We made a wish and made memories which  really are,


“special moments that tell our story”


I have finished off  the last of my last Christmas makes. My crackers for Christmas 2017 are ready for the table and I will be back to share them very soon over on my blog.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking the time to leave your kind comments, especially at this very busy time of the year. I hope that you have nearly finished all your Christmas preps too.


Bye for now,
Jane x



Loving Daisy’s gorgeous face in these photos Jane… such a fabulously magical page capturing those precious memories! Than you for sharing it  ♡

Destination Happy

Hello! We are back with more fabulous inspiration this evening!

Heather Mitchell has been creating THE most gorgeous texture..



Hello everyone…

How is everyone doing?  As I write this it’s a ridiculously miserable day,  dark, drizzly, windy and chilly and just the sort of day I want to tuck myself up in a duvet… however, my new make for Visible Image definitely blows away the cobwebs!


As November is ‘Tag Challenge’ time over in the Visible Image Facebook group, for my inspiration this week I’ve chosen a tag I made using the Strobes stencil:




I have to admit, I absolutely adore my finished tag.  The colours are just so vibrant!  It was very easy to create (albeit a bit on the messy side!)





The tag is made from 300gsm watercolour paper, this way I knew it would soak up the colour well.

I’ve used modelling paste through the stencil and allowed it to dry overnight.  I’ve then used various Distress Ink Sprays to drip colour from the middle and pour it down the strobes but I haven’t sprayed the ink, I removed the top and used a pipette to gulp up the ink and then drip.



I wasn’t entirely happy with my tag at this point and felt it needed yet more colour so I dabbed some Distress Oxides on my craft mat, sprayed with water and then dipped the tag in the ink. To add a little sparkle, I’ve added splash of gold spritzing ink, which you can see glowing nicely in the photo above!




The little Origami boat stamps are adorable and I love it in this colour against the hot colours

As the background is so vibrant, I kept the detail simple and used just one of the fabulous Origami boat’s from Destination Unknown set held in place using 3D foam dots over some fibres that I’ve stapled down. There are a few droplets of Liquid Glass on their too which adds a lovely different texture.



The sentiments have been stamped on white card and I’ve distressed the edges using Distress Ink pads before matting them onto black card.  To finish, I’ve threaded some bright pink and red ribbon through the punched hole which echoes the colours perfectly.

And there you go!  This make is a definite keeper… you know, those projects you make that you can’t bear to give away and you just get out to look at lovingly now and again! Hehe!


Right… here’s the ingredients for the tag:


Visible Image Products:


Strobes Stencil:




Destination Unknown stamp set:




Distress Ink Products:
Sprays – Picked Raspberry, Spiced marmalade, Candied Apple,
Oxide Ink Pads – Worn Lipstick, Abandoned Coral



Other items:
Indigo Blu ‘Luscious Pigment Powder’ in Pink, Docrafts Spritzing Ink in Gold, DecoArt Liquid Glass, Stayzon Ink Pad in Jet Black, Fibre, 3D Foam Dots


Thank you for looking and hope to see you next time!

Definition of a Sister

Hello! So sorry we have missed a few days posts.. it’s all been a bit crazy with the Black Friday SALE.. website crash (BIG thank you to Patrick for getting it back online quickly!)..  and this weekend we have been moving into our fabulous new premises too! Photos soon!!!

So, we now have lots of inspiration to share this weekend. First up, here’s Sharon Traynor…




Hi there. I’m popping on here today to share a fun tag that I made with my Visible Image stamps.

I don’t usually make tags but when I do, I completely cover the tag with layers of ink. I love all the rich, warm colours on this one.




Here’s how to make it.


Stamp the profile image and words (links to the stamps are below) with clear Versamark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.


TIP: Be sure to choose the smoother side of the water colour paper for stamping. If you choose the bumpy side it is difficult to get a full image.


Wet the watercolour card and pounce distress stains randomly on the card. Whilst drying spritz with some water droplets. Using the Cosmic Skies stencil, brush through it with carved pumpkin (on the yellow parts) and candied apple (on the orange parts) around the face image.


Next brush through the Fibres stencil with rusty hinge distress ink. Then randomly add parts of the Sister Definition words inked up in rusty hinge distress ink, and random bits of the splodgy parts of the face image in candied apple distress ink.


Cut the embossed part of the inked watercolour card into a tag shape and blend vintage photo distress ink around the edges. Add co-coordinating coloured ribbons and 3 co-ordinating heart charms.


On the leftover pieces of inked watercolour card, draw round some stars from the Stars and Stripes stencil and fussy cut them. Add the cut out stars to the tag using varying heights of 3d foam pads. The final touch is to dot gold stickles around the areas of stars.



Stamps & Stencils Used:

(please click on the picture to be taken direct to the individual stamps and stencils in the online store):

https://visibleimage.co.uk/product/cosmic-skies/   https://visibleimage.co.uk/product/fibres/


https://visibleimage.co.uk/product/stars-stripes/



Other Supplies:

Watercolour Card, Ribbons, Charms, Versamark clear ink, Wow! ultra bright white embossing powder, Gold Stickles, Distress spritzer, Distress Stains (mustard seed, carved pumpkin, candied apple) Distress Inks (carved pumpkin, rusty hinge, candied apple, vintage photo).


I hope you like this tag and are inspired to make one of your own.


Thanks for stopping by and we really hope to see you again soon.


Hugs,
Sharon xx


Love this tag! The white image and words look stunning against the vibrant orange. Thanks Sharon ♡

Create Texture!

Hi there! We are excited to be sharing the very first Design Team projects from Elisa Ablett here on the blog tonight…



Hi everyone,
Elisa here from the design team with my first post representing Visible Image, this is so exciting for me, it’s a dream team with the most exciting arty stamps and stencils!


For my first post and in keeping with the November ‘make a tag’ challenge theme over at Visible Image Facebook Group, I created the following tags..


For my first tag – I wanted to create a bold and vibrant mixed media tag using colourful and exciting mediums including Pebeo Metallic Paints and Colour Crush Powders from Tinby Designs and of course some lovely stamps from the Visible Image (Just be Happy and The Ripple Effect – Stamp Sets)









Products Used:




For my second ‘tag’ (which is more like an ATC) I went a little darker in both the tone and mood of the project. The background is on a thick black cardstock as my base, I then layered Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap plus Blueberry Colour Crush Powder from Tinby Designs.


Next step was to use the fabulous Fibres Stencil along with some Colour Blast Bling Paste to add some texture.
I then stamped and fussy cut the main feature – the Skeleton from Mr Bone Jangles stamp set and using 3D mounting tape for depth.











Products used:





That’s it from me today, I hope you have enjoyed seeing how you can utilise your Visible Image stamps with mixed media projects!


Hugs xx
Elisa



Awesome inspiration for our challenge Elisa! Gorgeous splattered paint and loving all the texture on your second project.. our Fibres stencil looks amazing!! Thank you ♡
