Imperfection is Beauty

Good Evening! Lisa Taggart is here with some super stunning inspiration for you this evening…


Here at Visible Image I have a little something to brighten your day, I hope!

This mixed media piece combines stencilling leftovers; sparkly texture paste; stamping and frantage. What more could you want !!





Here are today’s star products:


Imperfection is Beauty




Cosmic Skies stencil




Strobes stencil




I began using a piece of card where I had blotted ink off my strobe stencil when using it for another project . I love left overs. Actually sometimes I prefer them! I thought my scrap inked card would look nice with some sparkly texture paste on top.

Next I stamped and embossed some flowers, stems and sentiment using black sparkle embossing powder. I experimented a bit adding some frantage fragments as texture and some black micro beads after the flowers were cut out. I also stamped onto inked scrap card for added interest and intensified the colour using my Spectrum Noir acohol markers.

The morale of this story is never throw away your interesting scraps! Also a little texture can breathe life into any project.


Until next time.

Get The Balance Right


Good Afternoon! We have more gorgeous Zodiac inspiration for you today. Pauline Butcher has been playing with our Libra set…

Hello!

I’m back again to show you something that I’ve created using some awesome Visible Image Zodiac Stamps.

You may have spied this on our last TV show on Create & Craft, I used the ‘Libra‘ Zodiac stamp set, along with the big background stamp from the Somewhere in Time‘ set.
 


 


I created the background, using some acrylic paints, loads of colours just daubed on randomly.


On top of my background, I stamped the big background splat stamp with an embossing pad, heat embossed it using Fluorescent Green Embossing Powder. I also stamped the dates, and the constellation again using an embossing pad, but this time I used Fluorescent Blue Powder.





On a separate piece of shiny red card, I stamped and heat embossed the scales, with Black powder, and then fussy cut them. I used 3D glue gel to add them to the card.



Stamps Used:





Thank you for popping in.

Hugs, Pauline xxxxx

 

Amazing painty background Pauline, and loving that fluorescent green! Thank you ♡

Grungy Butterfly

Hi! Thanks for visiting our blog today! It’s been a very busy start to the week here.. packaging lots of gorgeous stencils, designing awesome new stuff for 2018 and of course packing and sending lots of orders to our wonderful customers and retailers! We’ve also been planning our October shows on Create and Craft TV… get the 27th & 28th in your diary!

Today we have some superb inspiration for you from Eileen Godwin…

Hello – I’ve been playing with Distress Oxide Inks whilst trying to create a birthday card for my friend Elaine (aka Archie).




I’ve used:
The reverse, white side, of Centura Pearl card
A Tim Holtz Stencil ‘Shatter’ along with some DecoArt Media Crackle Paste
Faded Jeans, Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks
Plus, one of my favourite stamps from Visible Image




the Butterfly from the ‘Live Life Now’ set and Black Archival ink.


I wanted a sort of abstract ‘look’! So, after the paste was dry I squished the inks onto my mat then dabbed,
painted and dribbled the inks onto my cardstock, along with a little water until I was happy with the result
before stamping the Butterfly image twice to finish.

The ‘friend’ stamp is from my stash.


Thanks for looking today.

Back soon.
Eileen xx

Live Like Tomorrow Doesn’t Exist – Visible Image

Hello there! Thank you for visiting our blog today.

Gez Butterworth has a fabulous mixed media card to share with you today created with our awesome Tomorrow Doesn’t Exist stamp set…



Good morning! I am delighted to be sharing a card with you today created for Visible Image

I am really enjoying creating backgrounds with the fabulous range of paints and special mediums from DecoArt teamed together with the fabulous images from Visible Image what more can you ask for !!!

First of all I created a background using Black Gesso and washi tape followed by some random stencilling. I coloured some of the Texture Sand Paste with Pyrrole Red acrylic paint.

I painted over most of the texture paste to help push it into the background.using media fluid acrylic paints.

Once everything was dried I spritzed the background with DecoArt media Misters..

Then getting quite lost in the process.. again ! I forgot to take photographs.. I added some clear crackle glaze over the top of the texture sand paste and ink drips to see what would happen.. I LOVE the result..

I just had to show you a glorious close up !

Gorgeous textures and crackle !
