Grow

Hello! Thank you for visiting our blog today. Veerle Moreels is here with a beautiful tag created with one of our fabulous NEW stencils…


For today’s project I had some fun with the Baby Bloom stencil …a beautiful stencil with a beautiful flower that can easily be used by itself.





I used some texture paste through the stencil to have my little flower raised on my project and then colored it in using my DIY Inktense travelset and some regular watercolors.




And of course what better word than ‘grow’ for this project from the set ‘Into the Woods’. You can see it has lines around it but I wanted to stamp it inside a home rusted paper clip. So I stamped it without the lines and there is a very easy trick to do so which I show you in the video in THIS BLOG POST



I’ve got this feeling I’ll be using this flower more than once ^.^

Inspiring Sentiment Stamps

Hi there! Veerle Moreels is up next on the blog today, with a beautiful tag featuring our NEW ‘Butterfly Ink’ stencil and one of the inspiring sentiment stamps from our NEW ‘Stronger Than You Think’ set…


Sometimes I start thinking and looking at the world around us. And to many times I notice all the demands we need to fulfill. It all needs to go faster, it needs to be better.  And strangely enough we feel the need we have to meet up with them. We can’t stay behind, we have to meet to the high standards others set for us. And without knowing we let them take away beautiful parts of us, parts that make us US.

With this in mind I had a play with one of the beautiful new released words and stencils. Very easy, and CAS but I had the camera running anyway.



Don’t let anyone take away your color. Smile your beautiful smile…

Her Spirit Was Strong..

Good Evening! If you love texture and shimmer you will adore Elisa’s inspiration here on the blog today…


Hi everyone,

Elisa here with my latest mixed media project for you.




A mixed media tag featuring a couple of Visible Image’s background stamps:


the new awesome Fibonacci




and De-Stressed




To create the tag, I started with a heavy base chipboard tag from 2Crafty Chipboard, perfect substrate for a mixed media tag. Next came a background of gesso’d old book paper, torn and distressed.


I then stamped my feature dragon flies, hand coloured with a bit of the gorgeous teal dylusions shimmer spray, and then fussy cut them out and 3d mounted them over my background.


Live In The Moment




I loved using the Cosmic Skies Stencil to create a small and subtle amount of texture for my background. I used a white modelling paste as I find that it doesn’t soak up colour as much as other mediums leaving you with bright colour!


Cosmic Skies stencil






Close ups for the finer details –

 

 

 


That’s it from me today, make sure you leave me some love!
Elisa xx




Wow that turquoise is stunning! Love how you used the stencil.. thanks Elisa! ♡

How Fragile Are We

Good Evening! Thank you for visiting our blog today.

Veerle Moreels is here with a stunning new tag…


How fragile we are…

How fragile are we…



It always amazes me how, by just switching the two last words from place, you get (well I get) a completely different feeling. And depending on what the feeling is that is racing inside of me I’ll choose one or the other…



And it isn’t very hard to make a project using these words. Visible Image has enough stamps that match these words AND the little reminder I want to give myself.  Choosing the colors wasn’t hard either… this project needed black and white. And then this little tiny red heart…at the end of a very fine root of the tree.



Clean and simple, yet strong enough for me with all my tiny elements coming together…



Stamps Used:


How Fragile




Leave Your Fears




Such a beautiful tag Veerle.. thank you  ♡

Dream.. Inspire.. Imagine

Hello and Happy Easter! We hope you are enjoying a break from routine, and spending time with your favourite people. We are taking a couple of days off, enjoying some family time (and eating a little bit too much chocolate!), before the madness of the Ally Pally craft show preparation starts on Tuesday!!

Lanette Erickson has another gorgeous tag to share with you today…


Hello All!


Today it is my turn to share & hopefully inspire you here on the Visible Image Blog, and I just had to create something with this Dragonfly. So, I decided that I would create a layered tag with him as the star of the show!





Products Used: Visible Image Stamp Sets- Imagine Dream Inspire, De-Stressed, Ink Splats & Live in the Moment. Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays- Rusty Lantern Lime, Bells of Ireland Green, Green with Envy Green & Luminous Yellow. Art Anthology Sorbet- Cayman & Tink. Ranger- Electric Lime & Caribbean Coast Ink Pads. Versa Mark Black Ink. White Uniball pen. Ranger Glossy Accents. Misc Ribbon. Prima- Watercolor Paper. Wafer-Thin Umbrella Dies.



     



Now lets take a close look at my tag….



I just love the Dragonfly in the ” Live in the Moment Stamp Set” he is absolutely beautiful! So I had to fussy cut him to really make him POP. I also stamped directly on the tag too.



Here you get better look at the titles that from the “Dream Inspire Imagine Stamp Set” While I love the definitions in this set, I really only wanted the bold titles for this tag. So with just a bit of selective inking I had my bold words.



If you look closely, you will see there really is a lot going on in the background of my tag. I used both the De-Stressed & Ink Splats Background Stamp Sets.



     



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


Thank you so much for stopping by today!
I hope that I have inspired you in some way!




Thank you Lanette.. your tags are always stunning! ♡

She Took A Deep Breath..

Good Evening! We are back with more awesome inspiration and a new video tutorial from the wonderful Veerle Moreels…


The organic stamp from Visible Image was calling for a long time to be inked up. And I knew what I wanted to do with it… and I still have to because my project turned out to be something completely different than what I wanted to do initially ^.^




There were some bumps in the road, amongst being knock out for a couple of days in between, but I’ve managed to get the project finished. I had my camera on while creating so there is a new video for you today. Have fun!



I still want to go and make that first idea, and while making this project I got another idea for this stamp so… you’ll see it come by another time without a doubt ^.^

If I Could Turn Back Time..

Hello!

Veerle Moreels is here with a gorgeous tag and video tutorial for you today…




If you could turn back time… how would today look like? Would it be the same, or would you change things in the past that makes today could look completely different. But be careful… it’s not only the bad things that change… your changes might just have its influence on the good things you have today too.


I had the camera running while creating this tag…

 

 

This beautiful butterfly and those thoughtful words are Visible Image stamps. And the coloring is a combination of Derwent Inktense and my beloved watercolors.

 

Stamps Used:


Own Kind of Beautiful




Love You Longer

Destination: Adventure

Hello! We have some fantastic inspiration coming your way here on the blog today!

First up today is Heather Mitchell…


Hello everyone!

Well… what a snowy and cold week that was!  I hope you’re all safe and got to throw a few snowballs, if that’s you’re thing, or managed to avoid them if it isn’t!  I love the snow.  I love watching the pupsters jump in it and shovel their nose through the powder only to come up with a big whale-type snort! Ha!

Anyway, enough of the cold stuff… let’s move onto to warmer climes with my latest Visible Image DT make..

So last Wednesday was my birthday and I met my lovely crafty friend for lunch and she suggested a wander round Hobbycraft (how could I refuse!).  I managed to pick up a fabulous little globe die and I knew exactly what stamps would work perfectly with it.





I’m really into my tags at the moment and thought a tag would suit the travel theme perfectly so I layered up two different sized tags that I’ve die cut using a Sizzix/Tim Holtz combo.  The larger tag I’ve then die cut again to add some interest to the bottom.  After heat embossing Fibonacci in bright white, I’ve then built up the colour using Distress Oxide ink pads.  To add extra detail, I stamped Elemental over the top lightly using a Sepia Archival Ink and then used the mesh stamp from the Mesh-ellaneous set around the edges.




For the top tag, I’ve used the fabulous Fibres stencil along with the new Resist Spray from Ranger.  It’s very subtle but you can just see where the colour has resisted and made a mottled effect.  To that, I’ve added Elemental (again using Archival’s Sepia ink pad) before heat embossing the rain stamp from Sparkle in the Rain in that gorgeous copper colour.



After die-cutting the globe, I’ve added the sentiments from the Destination Unknown stamps and layered them together before adhering to the card blank.  Perfect for someone off on an adventure!


The Visible Image stamps I’ve used for this make are… (ta-da!)…


Fibonacci


I hope you like today’s inspiration.  Do check out the Visible Image blog homepage for some amazing makes by the other DT members… truly stunning work.  Catch you next time…

Time To Make Some Changes

Hi there! We hope you are enjoying all the amazing inspiration here on the blog today!

Veerle Moreels is up next with a brilliant tag and another fantastic video tutorial for you…


Change is good no? It can be scary but sometimes you just have to jump in and make some changes in an effort to make something … better I suppose?

You can choose to keep going with the flow, it feels secure and if everything is going smoothly why would you change something? But when you don’t try… how will you ever find out if changing things can get you in an even better place than you already are?


With those thoughts in mind I took out my crafting supplies and my video camera to make a new video.


Enjoy!

Hi everyone,


Elisa here from the design team for Visible Image with my latest mixed media projects featuring one of the NEW and exciting ‘Written in the Stars’ Zodiac stamp sets that have just been released by this AWESOME UK Company. These stamps are so versatile.. so far the team have made cards, tags, mixed media projects, a wall hanging, journal pages – so you can see they are well worth it!

I am featuring the Zodiac Capricorn Stamp Set on a galaxy art journal page along with the Believe in Unicorns stamp set, and a texture background featuring water colour crush powders plus wax kitchen paper.





I also have a second project on offer featuring the same stamp set! a mixed media tag with alcohol inks and acetate and gold foiling.





Here are some close ups of my Art Journal – Capricorn Galaxy page and my Alcohol Ink and Acetate mixed media tag!








Some of the techniques used on this art journal page include – wax kitchen paper collage, embossing, watercolour wet on wet and gold foiling using a glue stick!


Water colour powders called Colour Crush by Tinby Designs in Australia were used to create the colours in the background.







Some of the techniques used on my tag – a monoprinted background with a gel plate, alcohol ink on acetate and gold foiling on acetate.



Here is the awesome versatile stamp set – Zodiac Capricorn..




That’s it from me today!


Thank you for stopping by.

Love Yourself

Hello! Yes we are back with another inspirational project featuring our new stamps!

Veerle Moreels has a fabulous video tutorial for you, showing how she created this stunning tag…





What’s in a fingerprint?  When you look at it…there’s nothing much to see. It are just some lines and you leave them behind because you have dirt on your fingers.

But when you take a bit more time to not just look but also think… there is more behind those lines. You see, they are unique for each and every one of us. They are you and that is a strong message when you put it down onto paper. Everyone can copy your signature, everyone can try to look like you inside and out. But no one can put your fingerprint onto paper. And you yourself… can’t try to change that fingerprint. Well you could always cut new lines into them or burn them off… but I don’t feel like doing that on purpose ^.^  And I don’t feel like changing those lines…



Enjoy the video!



Stamps used:


Bloom and Grow




Beautiful tag Veerle and loving the message behind this project. Thank you for another wonderful video tutorial, we could watch you create your gorgeous backgrounds all day… ♡

Fragile

Good Morning! We have some amazing inspiration coming your way today!

First up on the blog today is Lisa Taggart sharing a stunning tag…


I’m back today sharing a mixed media tag made using the Skull Shadow stencil and some of the new stamps from Visible Image.



Stamps used:


How Fragile


Organics



For this project I also used : An mdf tag; Sheena stamping card; ink sprays in teal, green and metallic bronze ; foils in teal and copper; pebeo foiling gel; black embossing powder; versamark ink; Amsterdam black and white acrylic pens; copper wire ;complimentary ribbons; metal gears and irredescent pink gem.



D508B224-DD49-4150-9AF9-D90039AE011C



To begin I lined the tag with the stamping card. This was then sprayed randomly using the sprays. Rather than spray through the stencil I decided to spray green ink on to the stencil and use like a stamp to create the skull impression. I did this a couple of times so the skull shape stood out from the background. I also highlighted the shape using black and white pens and did a little shading around the edges using brown ink.

The focal point is the eye. I heat embossed in black the cracked glass stamp over the eye socket. Using the gel adhesive I highlighted some areas around the crack, splinters and the teeth. When clear I cold foiled using copper foil. I also added some white highlights.

I decided to add the metal gears and gem.

Using the organics stamp set I selected a couple of elements and like before stamped in black. This time I foiled on top using teal foil. I also wound some wire around the bottom and along the side of the tag for added texture.

I stamped the ‘fragile’ sentiment onto inked card and added some white highlights . I wound more wire through the hole at the top of the tag along with some ribbon.

Gemini Sky

Hi there! We have another brilliant video tutorial here on the blog this evening. Veerle Moreels has created a rather special tag…




So you couldn’t miss it… Visible Image has released loads of new beautiful designs and each time I got to see what they came up with ideas just jumped in my head. And for today’s stamps that was no different.

The moment I saw those two faces… I just knew I wanted the back one, you know that one that is partially hidden, to be black. And the face that is at the front, for everyone to be seen loud and clear to be white.  How fragile are we?

And as I’m playing with a Zodiac sign…I needed a galaxy. I made one my own mixed media way and I show you all about it in the video. Have fun!



And yes… there’s a set for every Zodiac sign ^.^




Stamps Used:

So beautiful ♡ We love it! Thank you Veerle!

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! ♡

Fight Back The Tears

Hello! We have double inspiration for you here on the blog today, as we took a (sneaky) day off yesterday!


Veerle Moreels is here with a gorgeous tag…



We all have those moments where life is a bit of a struggle, even sometimes a hell of a hard fight. A fight to keep standing up with your back straight and your head held up high while life keeps throwing challenges at your feet.

With some of those personal challenges in mind I created this project.



I chose some words from the ‘Disguise of a smile’ set that were perfect for this project and combined them with some background stamps.


Disguise of a Smile




And then the choice of the colors, I know… you didn’t expect me to use bright pink right ^.^




Even though I don’t use bright pink a lot, for me personal it does have a meaning. Pink is that color I’ll turn to if I need a reminder to stay positive, no matter how dark it becomes around me.

I loved how the little blank spaces in the universal circle also gave me the chance to play with the amount of black in this project…



Background stamps used:


Mesh-ellaneous




Universal




Beautiful tag Veerle.. loving that hot pink! Thank you ♡

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 ♡
