TIME | make every moment count

Hello! We are back with another dose of awesome inspiration today! Ericka has teamed up our SOMEWHERE IN TIME SET with our SQUARE ROUTE STENCIL to create a fantastic card…

Happy Thursday! Today I’m playing with the Visible Image Somewhere in Time set along with my gel plate and the Visible Image Square Route stencil.

I started by making the background using my gel press and brayer with acrylic inks in my stash. I used a variety of yellow colors first. I used the Square Route stencil on another pull and then pressed the stencil onto my paper.

I then used the number stamp and gears in the set and stamped them around my page.

I used white ink and stamped the background for the watch and then stamped the watch image on top in black Versafine ink. I clear heat embossed the image to help it pop from my busy background.

I cut my panel down to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and glued it to the black card base. I then used the included sentiments on black cardstock and white heat embossed them.

I added the sentiments to my card with foam tape to pop them up.

I love this great set and the sentiments included.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!

This is brilliant! We love the look of the ink splat stamp in white behind the smashed clock and those citrus colours are gorgeous! Thank you Ericka

Somewhere In Time…

Good Evening! We are back with our 3rd dose of awesome inspiration this evening!

We’re really excited to share the very first Design Team project by Heather Mitchell…

I was super inspired when my Visible Image DT kit arrived (and just a little blown away at the awesomeness of the stamps).  I got very excited as, even though they’re sold in sets, they are so interchangeable and many of the images and sentiments can be used in different ways… which, as a crafter, is just fabulous!

The Somewhere in Time set really caught my eye.  I love the fractured pocket watch… it seemed to represent how I’m feeling at the moment.

Obviously, me being me, I had to start with an inky background and so I reached for some watercolour paper and my Distress Oxide’s

I loved the stormy look I created with the Oxide and spritzed with gold ink to add a little sparkle

I’ve added elements of ‘Fibres‘ and the gorgeous ‘Strobes‘ stencils before stamping the text from ‘Scripted Streets‘ and the cogs from ‘Somewhere in Time’

I placed the ‘Strobe’ stencil so it looks like light is shining onto the main image

Text stamps are a great way to add texture and break up areas of colour

Once the background was complete, I could start adding the main images.  Using Wow! Embossing powder, I stamped the background of the watch and added the detailed image over the top once cooled

The detail on Visible Image stamps is just incredible…
even the smallest detail stamps perfectly every time

To break up the text, I’ve used the rain stamp from the ‘Sparkle in the Rain‘ set before adding the sentiment.  The title ‘Time’ stamp is from the ‘Somewhere in Time’ set and the sentiment from ‘What Really Matters

I hope you like my first post for Visible Image, it’s been quite daunting… and for those of you that like to know what’s been used, here’s a list of the magic ingredients used in this project:
