ATC365 #272 THINKING




I wish the photo did this justice!

I am not good at taking photos of things with shimmer.

This is one of those 'photo-real' stamps stamped onto a pearl coated card.

Anyway, here it is.

Marvellous Monday with Visible Image



WOW! Another week has started!

Today I have a card for you as inspiration made using only Visible Image stamps.



I started with a Brusho coloured piece of card in shades of purple, lime and teal and added the really useful Bronte Script stamp using teal ink.

Just a hint of it stamped randomly but always level.

I added some splats in purple and teal.

When that was done I cut the piece down before sewing it to a 
matting layer of cream watercolour card. 


The tag was cut from another coloured piece of card but this time instead of the big purple splats I used the Live life Now sentiment.

Again I sewed this to a cream mount. Both these mounts were then roughed up along their edges.

I added some brads to the tag, my current favourite embellishment!

ATC365 #265 WATERFALL





I went to see a solo artist play at my local theatre last week.

He played a selection of songs by Jimi Hendrix.

Jimi may not be well known for his romantic tunes but this track is a great example of such a song.

'May this be Love' is beautiful, gentle and brought a tear to my eye!




Here is Benji playing his version and just for good measure I have also added the Hendrix version.

You decide!


'Fall with me for a million days'

ATC365 #264 BURST FORTH



First day of a new week and I feel slightly less stressed.

It is amazing what a long tramp through the hills can do for your mind!

Wet up to the knees, long grass, horses, beautiful views, blue skies and lots of lovely fresh air!


Another ATC made using a Visible Image stamp 
along with a quote from a book. 

No idea what book anymore, but a nice quote non-the-less.

Marvellous Monday with Visible Image



What a fantastic weekend the guys at Visible Image had!

Check out the Visible Image Facebook page (link at the bottom of the post) to see what they all got up to!

Here is my inspirational piece for you today on this wet, and somewhat autumnal Marvellous Monday.

I confess to be running late but I promise to expand on my How2 for this project later tonight when I get back from work. 

It has been a 'strange' weekend.

ATC365 #261 #262 #263 DISTRACTED




Sometimes life has a nasty way of interrupting you from your path.

This weekend has been such a time.

I don't feel I have failed in my ATC365 journey, but I have certainly encountered a hiccup this weekend.


I'm all caught up again now so hopefully I can put this lapse behind me and carry on to the end without further problems.

Thanks for following me.

ATC365 #258 HOLD ON TO YOUR MEMORIES




Who says you have to use the full sentiment?

I have, once again, used stamps from Visible Image.

I decided to use only part of the full sentiment which accompanies

 this lovely flower silhouette image.




I will leave you to check out other sentiments, or even words that can be chopped up and used.

MARVELLOUS MONDAY with VISIBLE IMAGE



I simply adore the sentiment stamps that Visible Image design.

Really different and the fonts they use are completely awesome!!

They are perfect for that finishing touch to one of my famous Brusho backgrounds.

If a job came up for a Background Designer then I would be the first to apply!



So this one features the versatile swirl from the UNIVERSAL set.

I painted the background and then used bleach with the swirl stamp.

Once dry I then used clear embossing powder to add some shine.


The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of the same painted card before the addition of the clear embossed swirls.

MARVELLOUS MONDAY with VISIBLE IMAGE





Here is my inspirational piece for Visible Image.

It is a piece of home decor, a 3 dimensional project which I made from a small shallow box.



I used a piece of acetate to stamp the sentiment onto.

I wanted the words to stand out from the background and thought by using acetate I could suspend them.

They are neither right at the back or right at the front. They are just hovering.

Yesterday I didn't switch the computer on at all.

I did post yesterday but it was a pretty poor photo and so today I have taken a better shot!




Crisp and clear!
