How Fragile We Are

Good Evening! It’s been another crazy busy day here are Visible Image, just a few days left to get everything finished before we head off to Creativation.

Heading to the show..? come and say Hi! We’re @ BOOTH #539 in the International Pavilion!

Did you see this morning’s NEW stamps reveal?

Well Heather Mitchell is here to tell you more about one of her awesome projects created with our NEW ‘How Fragile’ stamp set from our Day 4 preview…



Hello everyone and a very happy belated new year to you all…

Exciting times at Visible Image HQ where so much has been happening! Mark has designed the most amazing/beautiful/stunning stamps… they truly are unlike anything else on the market.

Today’s designs unveiled include this gorgeous design called ‘How Fragile’ and, like all the other stamps, is available for pre-order from tomorrow, Friday 12th January.



I’ve made a few projects using the stamps in this set, but I particularly like the simplicity in this monochrome tag.




To begin with, I’ve taken damp watercolour paper and blown/dribbled black watercolour paint and graphite ink around it to look as though the colour is spilling out from the effect.

Once fully dry, I stamped the cracked image in white opaque embossing powder over the black drips and then painted the centre to give a ‘hole’ effect.  Next, to enhance the smashed look, I’ve added a thick layer of Distress Crackle Paint into several of the shards (the thicker you use the crackle paint, the better results you get).


IMG_4905


In keeping with the colour scheme, I’ve then stamped the ‘How Fragile We Are’ sentiment in the same white heat embossing powder onto grey card and then matted it onto the same black card I’ve matted the actual tag on to.

The other members of the design team have come up with some amazing designs using the stamps so do keep an eye on the Visible Image blog for all the latest photos.


It’s an exciting time for Helen and Mark… and for the design team too as for many of us it’s the first time our work will be shown at Creativation… and that is a HUGE deal in the crafting industry!

If you’re lucky enough to be going… pop along to Booth 539 and say hello to the fabulous Helen and Mark and see the gorgeous samples created.. I have a feeling they are going to be incredibly busy over in Phoenix when everyone sees how outstanding and diverse their stamps are!


That’s all for today but I’ll be back very soon as I have so much to share with you in the next few weeks as I can’t seem to stop creating with these gorgeous new stamps!

Thanks for looking as always!

Glimmer of Light

Hello there! After a blogging break and well earned rest over the holidays, our Design Team are all revved up and excited to share lots of awesome new inspiration!

Kicking off the year in amazing style, here’s Lanette Erickson..



Hello All!

Today it is my turn to share & hopefully inspire you here on the Visible Image Blog.

So I thought I would share a layered tag I created featuring the Glimmer of Light Stamp Set. After all its the stamp that drew me to Visible Image and it really is my favorite set. I just love the stunning moth, he is giant and makes the perfect focal point. As you can see here…..





Products Used: Visible Image Glimmer of Light Stamp Set, Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays: Voodoo Violet Blue, Witch’s Potion Purple, Delphinium Turquoise, Screamin Banshee Black and Blazin Black. Lindy’s Stamp Gang Purely White and Obviously Black Embossing Powder. Watercolor Pencils. Ranger -Glossy Accents, Foam Tape, Watercolor Paper. Versa Mark Stamp Pad, Stazon Ink Pad, Prima/Finnabair Acrylic Sparks Paint- Raven Black and Metallique – White Pearl. A bit of ribbon, a few rhinestones and an eyelet from my stash.



See, he really is just beautiful and the perfect focal point!

Now you can see why he is my favorite!



Plus, the verse is such a perfectly positive message, you really can’t go wrong with this stamp set.

Now let’s a better look at the compete stamp set….



Glimmer of Light



Now before you go let’s take a closer look at my tag.



Here you can see the layers of both tags each with the same beautiful background.

I created this background using Lindy’s Sprays on watercolor paper and I let them air dry, for a soft smooth shimmer.

Additionally, you can see both layers of the moth. The fussy cut moth that I gave a little pop too using a bit of foam second is stamped directly on the tag.



Now make sure you stop by and join the fun over in our Visible Image Facebook Group!

We have a lot going on this month and you don’t want to miss anything!!

Trust me you want to see what is coming your way next week!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

I hope that I have inspired you in some way!




Incredible tag Lanette.. thank you! Your moth is stunning! And check out that background.. WOW! ♡

Dare To Swim

Hello! Thank you for visiting our blog today. We have been in ‘Creativation mode’ all week so far.. we are getting very excited to be visiting the USA for the very first time and have been planning our rather colourful booth! Our Design Team are creating stunning things with our ‘top secret’ new stamps for our stand too.. more on that in the New Year!!


Today we have some very gorgeous inspiration from Lisa Taggart here on the blog, featuring one of our top selling sets from 2017…



A little break from Christmas and snow today. I’m sharing an underwater scene using the ‘Dare to Swim’ stamps from Visible Image . It’s a bit experimental using alcohol inks and  my Spectrum noir markers onto Yupo paper. The effect gives a slightly impressionistic murky scene where achieving clear images proved allusive! I embraced it in the end and just went with the flow … excuse the pun!




I began by adding alcohol inks and let them make patterns. I stamped the images on top using black stazon ink and highlighted the scene using inks; alcohol pens; black and white markers and some stickles  in peacock.

Well, at least there’s no snow!

Creativity..

Hi there! We hope you are having a great weekend so far!

Josefine Fouarge is here with some awesome mixed media cards and a brilliant video tutorial too..




I was in the mood for some mixed media fun, but I didn’t want to create an art journal page or canvas. So I decided to create some mixed media art on a card instead. My new paint addition from a Black Friday sale and some of the Visible Image stamps helped me making my idea a reality.





I started with some texture for the background and added a mix of peach and grey color to it. I never used that color combo, but have seen several great projects from other crafters with it. After I was done with the background, I stamped my two focal images onto tissue paper and adhered them to the now cut down card panels.

The only thing missing was a sentiment, so I used the “creativity” part for the front and the rest for the inside. I heat embossed the sentiment onto black cardstock, distressed it (so it fits to the grungy look of the background) and adhered it to the card.


Do you want to see the process? No worries, I prepared a step-by-step video 🙂



I really like the grey and peach color combo. I probably have to use it more often 😀
What color combo do you like that you haven’t used in a while or always wanted to try?

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 ♡
