Time is Im-material @ Visible Image stamps

Hello! Hope you had a great weekend. What’s the weather like where you are? It’s been crazy here this morning… Hail and thunder storms and it’s so cold!

We are still crazy busy here, working around the clock making and packing orders! If you ordered some of our NEW stamps.. thank you! They are now released, and will be dropping through your letterbox any day now ūüôā

Today Kim Bacon is sharing a fabulous project using our Time is Precious set…


Hello all you lovely people! Thanks for dropping in. Well, another Monday is upon us. But don’t be down and gloomy.
Spring is springing, the birds are tweeting and I have got a Visible Image project to inspire you to get crafty!

Visible Image stamps - Time is Precious - Kim Bacon - 1


The new stamps launched recently are all fantastic but this melting clock and the sentiment that goes with it are just wonderful. So, after I bit of ‘getting to know you’ and a play with the stamps I decided to branch out and make something a little different.

This note book started out as a piece of good quality watercolour card which I had coloured both sides with Brusho paint and left to dry. I scrunched and soaked and scrunched some more and soaked some more with just water and got my hands all inky! It broke the fibres and made the card almost like cloth. I really like the way the edges become fluffy and I love the way the colour from one side bled over onto the other side.

Now the resulting fabric like quality the paper now had got me thinking. I could stamp onto cloth and then sew things onto this base card. It just snowballed! I used Brusho to colour the calico scrap to match and stamped onto the fabric with Stazon. I have no idea what ink is best for fabric but this worked for me! I used my sewing machine to attach the calico to the cover.

I made a small pad of paper which I sewed directly down the spine of the cover. I used eyelets and a piece of faux leather threaded with some wooden beads as the closure.

I was really pleased with the end result and I have plans to make more!

Hello There! It’s Fabulous Friday ūüôā

Over to the very fabulous Pauline Butcher for today’s inspiration…

Hello Lovely Crafty friends,
Here’s my weekly inspiration, using some of the fantastic¬†Visible Image¬†stamps available.
On this 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ card, the stamps I’ve used are…
 11-14-2014- Visible Image stamps - Woman INKognito - Butterfly stamp - imagine - stamping inspiration - pauline butcher - visibleimage.com

I’m sorry, but the photo’s are not the best, the day’s have been so dark, that I’ve had to rely on a daylight bulb, lol !!!!
I started off making the background, mixing Brusho’s separately with a drop of water in a palette, 3 colours, yellow, turquoise and red. ¬†I painted them randomly, letting them merge if they wanted to. when that was dry, using a paintbrush, I flicked the left over paint all over it. I then stamped the dots, just holding it in my hand, again randomly, using Picked Raspberry distress ink. I used the same method with the script stamp, but used Peacock Feathers, and then again with Mustard Seed. ¬†I stamped the sentiment with Versamark, and heat embossed in black.
I stamped the butterflies onto white card with Versamark and heat embossed again using black powder, coloured them with distress inks, fussy cut, shaped them and added Stickles.
For the Woman, I sprinkled a small amount of red Brusho onto the card, and spritzed with water, running it to the left, don’t worry if you have white card showing, this adds to the splattered look, and can be coloured with Salty Ocean Distress ink.¬†
Totally dry it, then add a swipe with an anti-static bag, and stamp the Woman with Versamark, and heat emboss in black. I then added a coat of glossy Accents to all the black, to give extra dimension, when it was dry I added Stickles to bling it !!!!! 
As you can see I rounded the corners, and mounted it onto black and blue card stock, before adding to the card with glue gel, then added the shaped butterflies with glue gel too.
