No particular reason, I just like the stamp.

MARVELLOUS MONDAY with VISIBLE IMAGE






Oh I love working with these Visible Image stamps!

This flower from the INKognito range is just amazing.


The background is from remnants for a BIGGER Visible Image project which I am keeping under wraps for the moment. I first coloured some white card with Brusho paints and then applied a very dry layer of white gesso. For half of the card I then stamped the circles from the universal set and coloured some of them in with red Brusho. Another dry brushing with gesso before stamping and embossing in black with the sentiment and the flower. Each piece was then machine sewn onto black card.

And no prizes for knowing who it refers to either.

ATC365 #328 I SPY.....






Told you I was going to use this eye stamp a lot!

It's from Visible Image and I think it is one of the most unusual stamps out there.



Will it be a different stamp tomorrow?

I wonder.....

ATC365 #327 JUST WATCH ME!!







My lovely DT bosses have just sent me this stamp which I cannot stop using at the moment.

My head said 'Are you going to use this stamp again?'

Hence the title.....'Just watch me!!!'

I didn't know how much I needed this stamp until I got it.

Thanks Visible Image, you're the best xx

MARVELLOUS MONDAY WITH VISIBLE IMAGE




Hope you all had a good weekend?

Bit wet and windy here by the coast but then that is just how I like it!


My project today features the lovely INKognito Butterfly stamp with the Live Life Now sentiment.

It starts with the usual Brusho background and some simple white embossing.


I used the splatters of the butterfly wings to edge the card.

Mounting with white card makes the colours stand out.

ATC365 #320 ATC




Yep, an ATC for my ATC365 challenge which I have named ATC

Nearly at the end of my year long journey

Been difficult sometimes

Already thinking about what to do in 2016.......


I used a Visible Image stamp, one of my all time favourite ones, 
the flower, which I think is styled on a Gerbera, from the INKognito range.

MARVELLOUS MONDAY WITH VISIBLE IMAGE





My DT piece for today features one of my favourite, and unusual stamps from Visible Image.

Back in February 2015 the guys at Visible Image came up with yet another brilliant set of stamps with a music theme.  

I can't remember seeing any stamps like this before 
and when they were launched they sold like hot cakes!

It's nice to revisit old favourites and I hope you are inspired by this card.


First I painted a red and orange background using Brushos and then used some bleach to add the stars.

I used black embossing powder for the main image, the sentiment and one of the stars.

Some mounting and layering and a little bit of wet brush work to add a shadow and the job was done!

MARVELLOUS MONDAY with VISIBLE IMAGE




A new week and with it comes another Marvellous Monday DT make with Visible Image stamps.



A simple one today, just white and mauve. 

I started by painting a piece of card with watercolor paint, Brushos as it happens.

When that was completely dry I used a coarse brush to apply a very very very dry brushing of white gesso in one direction only.

Onto that I stamped the 2 images with white embossing powder.

I tore the pieces to give a soft edge.

As I had my sewing machine out on the desk behind me I decided to attach all the pieces with stitches

A scattering of white brads and voila!

Monday, quick, tired, goodnight.

Marvellous Monday with Visible Image



So, what do you do when you spill a cup of tea over your blog piece?

You make something else!

And when you haven't got much in the way of stuff and time is short?

You make ATCs!


These were made from scraps left over from the blog hop piece I did a wee while ago.




Not as pink as they are in 'the flesh' for some reason but you get the idea.

I used the gerbera flower from the INKognito range
 and some of the Express Yourself sentiment stamps.
