Whoop whoop! Another Friday is upon us and thus another Friday Feature is here for you!
The guys at Visible Image have just come back from a very scorchio holiday, they had a great time but are back now in the thick of it with a show to go to this weekend. Boy they never seem to rest those two! I bet they were talking 'shop' even while they were away!
Which show you ask? The Great British Craft Festival – Stoneleigh Park, near Coventry, is my answer. Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th August. They are on stand D3. If you can, pop over and say 'Hi' to Helen and Mark. They will be the ones with the gorgeous suntans!
If you are lucky enough to be going then you will see some amazing samples the DT made using the latest stamp release, INKognito. They are fan-tab-u-lous, and I am not just saying that 'cos I am on the team! These stamps are really beautiful and lend themselves to a variety of styles, but are particularly good for those of you that like journalling.
Right, my project for today features the heart and the Live Life Now sentiment.
I used a new-to-me product, Dylusions ink sprays (only got mine 2 weeks ago, I know lots of you have been using them for ages!) for the background and gilding flakes for the stamped images. Word of warning, be very careful not to let the gilding glue dry on the stamps. This goes for ANY stamps, Visible Image stamps are pretty robust, but the gilding glue is not designed for use on stamps really and it does dry pretty quickly. It would mess up your rubber stamps too if left on there. But don't be frightened of using it. Just apply some glue to a flat surface, I use an acrylic block, (again wash quickly after use) and pick up the glue with the stamp just as if you were inking it up. Then stamp and leave to go tacky, apply the gilding flakes and voila!
Hope you like it?
