Feel The Beat

Hi there! Thank you for stopping by today!

We are really excited to be sharing preview #9 from our February NEW stamps release a little later!

But before that, Pauline Butcher is here with some amazing music themed inspiration for you…

Hello again,

It’s Fabulous Friday, and I’m here to share a creation I’ve made, using some fantastic Visible Image Stamps.

2017-01-20 Visible Image - music stamps - Pauline Butcher

I started with some white Water colour card, and sprinkled various colours of Brusho’s randomly on to it, then spritzed with water ( the more water you add, the more the colours will run into each other, and the paler they become). I dried it with my heat tool, (Brusho’s become permanent when dry) I then repeated the application. 

When it was dry, I stamped the two figures in the foreground, using Versamark, and heat embossed them using Black Glint Embossing powder. I then made masks out of a couple of post-it notes, and covered the figures, so’s I could stamp the Drummer behind them, he was heat embossed using Black powder.

Whilst the masks were still in place, I put a stencil on top, and added some Diamond Sparkle Medium through it, using a palette knife, this looks like laser lights on the stage. 

 Using some silver paint and a white pen, I added all the highlights to the ‘Band’, to give them some perspective. The sentiment was added using Versamark and some Red Glitter Embossing Powder. 

To finish off, I ‘grounded’ the Band, using some red Distress Ink, stamped some little stars in Black Versafine, and then added Stardust Stickles wherever I fancied !!! 

The stamps I used are.. 

Thanks for dropping in.
Hugs, Pauline xxxxx

Let’s Rock @ Visible Image

Good Evening 🙂

Thank you for coming to visit us today! It’s Thursday which means Teresa is here with her latest Visible Image inspiration…

Welcome back – are you excited about the new stamps coming next week?

If you haven’t seen the sneaky clues then be sure to pop along to the new release event on Facebook which you can find by clicking here. I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been working on, but for now we will both have to wait!!

This week I have made a card that would be great for any Rock music fan, and would also be a perfect Father’s Day card for all those ageing rockers out there!!

Visible Image stamps - Drummer - Rock - Skulls - Teresa Morgan

I stamped and embossed the chain from the Max Rocks set of stamps using Versamark Ink and silver embossing powder to create a frame around the card. Don’t worry about trying to match the corners as these are hidden by the skulls. The skulls are from the same set, stamped with black Versafine ink onto white card and cut out. I added some gems to the eyes.

I then stamped the skulls with Desert Sand Memento ink to create the background behind the drummer. The drummer is stamped with black Versafine ink, then I distressed the edge of the card and added some Black Soot Distress Ink.

This is matted onto red card, then onto the embossed black card. The skulls are mounted on 3d foam pads.

Over to Pauline…

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are feeling crafty and well.

Today I’d like to share a couple of cards that I made recently, using some unique Visible Image Stamps.

I created these cards for 2 workshops I was luckily enough to conduct, on behalf of Visible Image, at a fabulous shop in Studley,Pink Tulip Creations LtdI had a fantastic day, showing a group of lovely Ladies, the quality of the Visible Image Stamps, along with a few techniques using Distress Inks and heat embossing. Thank you to Sheila, (the owner of Pink Tulip), and her two right hand women Tracey and Angela, for organising such a great day and looking after me too.

 Here are my samples…

Visible Image stamps - Colours of The Wind - Leaf - Tree - Pauline Butcher

The stamps used on this card are the Colours of the Wind set.

 Visible Image stamps - Drummer - Feel The Beat - Pauline Butcher

And on this card I used Feel the BeatSoul Music and Plasma.

The workshop Ladies made such fabulous cards, they are a very talented group, thank you for putting up with me, and my warped sense of humour lol,  I hope you all had as much fun as I did.

Do pop over to the Visible Image ‘Show and Tell’, take a look at the wonderful works of art that people have made with the awesome stamps, it’s not too late to enter your creation, for a chance of winning new stamps.
Check out the Visible Image Facebook Group, if you haven’t already, there’s a friendly buzz going on there, with loads of inspiration along with some spot competitions.
Many thanks for visiting,
Hugs, Pauline xxxxx

Hey! 🙂 We’re back with even more inspiration today!!! Woweee we are spoiling you 😉

Pauline Butcher is certain to brighten your day with her latest creation! Over to Pauline…

Hi there,
I’m doing my Visible Image Stamps blog early this week, as I have swapped with my teamie Sue.
This is a card I created at the beginning of the month, using some fantastic Visible Image Stamps, for my Wonderful partner Rob’s Birthday. He is a drummer, so these new music themed stamps are genius for him.
 Visible Image stamps - Drummer - Feel The Beat - Music stamps - Pauline Butcher

The Visible Image stamps I used were…….
I started off with a 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Centura Pearl card, (I always use the mat side of the card for blending Distress Inks, it’s nice and smooth).  I blended Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers onto it, making sure that there was Mustard Seed in the middle. I then used the star stamp from the Universal set and stamped 4 stars using the same colours tone on tone. I Stamped the drummer and the sentiment using Versamark, and heat embossed with black powder. Using the feather stamp from ‘Angels are near’, I stamped just the inky tip around the edges using the same colours, tone on tone again, and then another layer at the edge using Chipped Sapphire.

This would have made a great 6″x 6″ card, but I decided to go bigger, lol.  So, on the mat side of a piece of Centura Pearl 7 1/4″ x 7 1/4″, and using the music stamp, I stamped from the middle out all the way around the card, again using the same 3 colours to co-ordinate with the topper. I then stamped the tip of the feather, again using Chipped Sapphire, around the edges. To finish off, I added Black Stickles to the sentiment, parts of the Drummer, and the edges of the larger background, I  then mat and layered onto an 8″ x 8″ card blank.

Don’t forget to enter the Visible Image ‘Show and Tell’ competition, for a chance to win some fantastic stamps, details HERE.

Also visit the Visible Image Facebook Group HERE, there’s always lots going on, and plenty of inspiration too.

There is a Visible Image Workshop day, in Bristol, on Sunday 17th May..
 10am – 4pm, organised by the ‘Out of the Blue – Gift Shop’.

I shall be conducting 2 workshops, using some very unique Visible Image stamps, at the Compass Inn, Tormarton, included in the day is a yummy Roast Dinner, for more details or to book phone 01454 312355.

Such an amazing card! Love how Pauline has stamped the Music wave around the edges and cool use of the feather too! Striking colours and doesn’t the ‘Universal Set’ make an awesome background!
