Hello! We’re back with some awesome inspiration from Nicky Gilburt for our ‘Splash of Colour’ challenge…

The Visible Image ‘Splash of Colour’ challenge runs over in the Facebook group throughout July. All you have to do is make a card or project using Visible Image products, adding your interpretation of ‘a splash of colour’, and upload it into the dedicated album. I for one can’t wait to see what that looks like, once everyone gets creating! It’s going to be glorious!

For this card I used two set of stamps:

Ahead of our Time


I also used 5 colours of Tim Holtz Distress Oxides and a Versafine Onyx Black ink pad.

First I ‘splashed’ my colour by laying a square of ink from a pad onto my glass mat and spritzing with a little water. I then used an old small poly bag to pick up the ink and apply it randomly around my cardstock. drying in between colours.

Once I was happy with my end result I stopped dabbing.

I used my Tim Holtz stamping platform to get a really good print from my bowler-hatted man. I did him three times to be sure but two would have been enough, as you can see, careful re-inking gets an incredibly black result!


All that remained was to use the letters and characters from the Alphabetical set to complete my project.
I also stamped the two past and future images from Ahead of our Time onto spare card and stuck them down with 3D foam.


I look forward to seeing all the contributions to the ‘Splash of Colour’ Challenge – don’t forget there is a prize draw at the end of it all too!

Happy Crafting

The extras in the alphabet set are so great for backgrounds, from the scribbled frames to the punctuation marks. Why not randomly jumble the letters up on your block to create your own unique background too!

You Can’t Turn Back The Clock

Hello! We are back, as promised, with more brilliant inspiration for you!

Pauline Butcher has combined 2 of our NEW sets which of course work so well together…

Hi there,
Well, I managed to get my hands on the brand new stamp designs from Visible Image, and had a very quick play, they are rather awesome.


The stamps I’ve used are…

The cogs and sentiment from Somewhere in Time

and the fabulous man is from Ahead of our Time


I achieved the background by brayering some very florescent green and Pink paint, dried it with my heat tool, then I stamped the cogs using Black Archival ink. I stamped the man and sentiment with Versamark, and heat embossed them using a green florescent embossing powder.

Thanks for visiting, 
hugs Pauline xxxx
