Stay Wild

Good Evening! We have even more awesome inspiration for you here on the blog today!

Lisa Taggart has got her hands on our amazing horse stamp..



Today I’m sharing a card using a fabulous stamp set and stencil from Visible image. It’s a little experimental discovering the effects of yupo paper, alcohol inks and alcohol markers. I was trying to create the impression of energy and motion. So here’s the result!




The products used:


Stay Wild




Fibres



To begin I randomly placed some alcohol inks onto the yupo paper and let them do their own thing. Taking the stencil I selected part of it and did a link up repeat across the page using a blue permanent ink. I stamped the main image in black permanent ink and the little background horses in blue.

To break up the black on the main image and to create a water in motion type effect I decided to draw some bubbles across the design. This was easy to achieve. Taking a alcohol blender pen I removed the ink by drawing  circles. I then highlighted these with blue and white pens to create dimension.

The sky was highlighted with pink and yellow ink and some extra detail was added using blue and green alcohol marker pens. Dots of diamond stickle were also added for a little sparkle !

The sentiment was stamped in black, inked in pink and mounted onto yellow. The artwork was matted onto pink Centura pearl and black card.

Don’t Be Afraid Of Change

Hello! Good Morning, Afternoon or Evening!

Gosh there were just not enough hours in the day to blog yesterday. This is what we were doing all day and late into the evening…




It’s the very busy Crafting at Ally Pally show this weekend so there has been so much to do!
We have a new stand this year too, so most of today will be spent creating lots of gorgeous
new display boards for all the stunning samples our wonderful team have created ♡


Today we will hopefully be sharing 3 more projects with you here on the blog.

First up is Pauline Butcher…

Helloooo,
 

Gosh another week has gone, is it me, or does each year seem to go faster than the last, lol !!!!

 

It’s time for me to share one of my Visible Image creations with you.

This card is made with a Brusho background, sprinkled and spritzed with water,
just make sure it is totally dry before stamping using Versamark, then heat emboss using White Embossing Powder, and of course the stamps are from the fantastic Stay Wild set.

So quick and easy!

 

 


Many thanks for your visit.

Hugs, Pauline xxxxx



What a stunner! Loving that background for the white horses ♡  Thanks Pauline!

“Sometimes what you’re most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free”

…what a brilliant quote and how true it is! We were so afraid last year when we made the massive change
to our business, stopping manufacturing the stamps ourselves, but it turned out to be the best decision ever!
It has really allowed us to evolve and grow.


We love how much you love our quotes and sentiments.. been receiving so many awesome comments, messages
and emails lately which mean so much ♡

Breaking Free

Hello! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration as promised!

Over to Teresa Morgan…


It’s time for me to share another fabulous inspiration card for Visible Image.

This week I have returned to the beautiful Stay Wild set, dug out the Brushos and created a stylish card for you.




I masked off the top and bottom of my card base so that I wouldn’t get Brushos everywhere!!

I then added a couple of shades of green to the unmasked section and spritzed with water until I was
happy with the effect. I allowed this to dry (or so I thought!!)before continuing. I used Archival ink to
stamp the horse but the Brusho area was still slightly damp so the image wasn’t as dark as I hoped for.
However, as I was going to add the sentiment to that area anyway I carried on, and the finished result looks fine!



I used some narrow black washi tape (from Flying Tiger) to edge the coloured panel, making it
look as though the horse is breaking free and escaping. The sentiments are stamped with Versamark
and embossed, I added a shadow to the white letters using a fineliner pen.



Stamps Used:

Stay Wild



Awesome card! Love the colours and how the horse is breaking free! Thank you Teresa ♡

You must SEA this inspiration…

Hello! We hope you are enjoying all the inspiration we are sharing here on our blog today.

Next we have two stunning projects from Pauline Butcher which were created for our Trade Show stand back in February. Over to Pauline…

Hello there,
 
You are getting two projects from me this week!


They are both created using some of the awesome new stamp sets available from Visible Image.


The first project is using the fantastic Dare to Swim set, there are such a fabulous array of extra stamps in this set, I love it…
 

 


 

I found this paddle thing in my MDF stash, and thought it would be perfect for an underwater scene, so using some acrylic paints I painted the background, then added the little fishes and  the sentiment using Versamark and heat embossed with some Blue sparkle Embossing powder. I also popped some bubbles randomly around using some white ink. The jelly fish and the seaweed were stamped onto heat resistant acetate with Versamark, and heat embossed using different colours of Embossing powder, then fussy cut. I painted on the back of the jellyfish, using Starlight paints.

 



For this next very simple card I used the great Stay Wild set, a must for horse lovers…

I started off making a background with some Brusho paints, then stamped the jumping horse with Versamark,
and heat embossed it with white powder, I also did the same for the sentiment.

 

 

On top of the white embossing, I sprinkled some frantage powder, and some other powders,
and heated from underneath, this gave a sort of splashed look.

Stay Wild

Hi there! More amazing NEW stamps inspiration coming your way! Over to Teresa Morgan…



It’s time for another new stamp project, and this week I have been using the amazing Stay Wild set.



2017-02-26 Visible Image - inky wild horse stamp - stay wild - Teresa Morgan


I stamped and embossed the beautiful horse using Versamark ink and white embossing powder.
I wanted to create a ‘herd’ so stamped three times, overlapping the image each time. I then created
some definition by inking the splatter edge of the stamp with black Archival ink and stamping randomly
over the embossing powder. This created a more layered effect rather than one flat area of white.

My background is a mixture of watercolour paint, Neocolour II crayons, Karisma pencils and fineliner.
I also stamped in some crackles using one of the Create It! set of stamps. I finished by adding some
shading around the horses using a charcoal pencil.
