Mixed Media Tag – Visible Image stamps

Hello 🙂 Thank you for visiting our blog today.

Susanne Rose is here to inspire you this evening with an amazing mixed media tag…



Hi everyone! It’s my day to inspire you with some of the awesome and so unique Visible Image Stamps. I did a mixed media tag and used one of my favourite Images: The Cheshire Cat:


Visible Image stamps - Wonderland Cheshire Cat - Susanne Rose


The background is a gelli print. I had a failed one and tried to rescue it. I am very happy with the result. Here are some step by step instructions on how you can turn a mud gelli print into a great background:



That was my background and I didn’t like it, so I used a bit of gesso at first:



I added some oranges with my Neocolor II watercolor pastels and the Portfolio watersoluble oil pastels:



Now I removed the color through a stenicl (this one is Bubbles from ARTplorations) with a wet baby wipe:



Now I used my homemade tag stencil to cut out the tag:



After cutting it out I stamped some interest with the script stamp from the Visible Image Revolution Set using Archival Jet Black Ink.



Before I stamped the lovely cat, I painted some gesso to lighten up my background:






The Cheshire Cat is colored with Neocolor II. I added some interest with a white and black UNIPosca Marker.

Wonderland Altered Book – Visible Image stamps

Good Afternoon, thanks for coming to visit us today here on the Visible Image blog 🙂

It’s Thursday which means two things….

Just ONE more sleep until our NEW stamps release 🙂 🙂 🙂

AND… Teresa Morgan is here with her weekly inspiration and wowza will she inspire you today!!!

Over to Teresa…


Hello again and welcome to my thrilling Thursday inspiration post. This week I have been playing with the fabulous Wonderland characters and decided to put them where they belong….in the pages of a book!



Visible Image stamps - Alice In Wonderland Book Project - Teresa Morgan


I got a big chunky book from the charity shop for this project as I needed some depth (in this case it was an epic Wilbur Smith novel)!!



Visible Image Stamps - Wonderland Characters Altered Book


I opened the book about a centimetre in from the front and started ‘carving’ chunks out of the pages with a craft knife. This is quite easy as long as you have a good sharp blade! I wanted to create a layered effect, so every so often I changed the outline of the aperture I was cutting. Once I was happy, I used some Mod Podge to glue the edges of the pages together to create a solid block. I find the easiest way to do this is to put a piece of cling film or acetate between the ‘front’ section and the carved ‘back’ section. Then use a glue spreader to apply the Mod Podge to the edges of the pages in the back section, pressing it in so that it seals them together. Weight the book down and leave overnight, then repeat if any sections are not stuck properly.



Visible Image Stamps - Wonderland Characters Altered Book


I coloured all the characters with the Warm Grey Promarkers then cut out. Once happy with my arrangement of them, I glued in place, tucked in the pages. I finished with some playing cards that I made with the Harley Jester set and the little signs using words from the character sets.I added some Pumice stone Distress Ink to the pages to add some definition to the layers.



Stamps Used:

Alice In Wonderland

White Rabbit

Mad Hatter

Tweedle Dum/Tweedle Dee

Cheshire Cat

Queen of Hearts

Harley Jester Set

Good Evening! It’s our third and final post today. If you missed the others you will find them HERE

Over to the awesome Teresa Morgan who has some superb Wonderland inspiration for you...



The Wonderland range of stamps from Visible Image have been a massive hit and everybody is loving the characters, including me!!

This week I am sharing a couple of cards with the cutest twins around – Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee:



Visible Image Stamps - Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee


I layered the faces and name tags using 3d foam, adding a bit of twine around their necks for extra detail. They are coloured with Promarkers and the background was created with a mask and Black Soot Distress Ink.



Visible Image Stamps - Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee


For my second card, I used the circle design stamp from the Universal set as my background design (love this set, it is so versatile, and a ‘must-have’ in my opinion!) I stamped the brush stroke design from the Drag and Drip set and added red embossing powder, then stamped the sentiment on top with black StazOn ink.

Again, the characters are coloured with Promarkers, and mounted on 3d foam.

Wonderland Queen of Hearts – Visible Image

Hi there, thanks for coming to visit us 🙂

Here’s Teresa with today’s awesome inspiration with our NEW Queen of Hearts stamp set…

It’s Thursday again, and that means it’s my turn to share some more projects with the fabulous new stamp sets from Visible Image. Today I have two cards and a canvas that I made with the beautiful Queen of Hearts… It’s a long post – so sit yourself down and enjoy!!



Visible Image Queen of Hearts

 

I used a spotty mask and Distress Inks (Festive Berries and Fired Brick)to create the background of this card. The image is coloured with Promarkers and Copics and mounted with 3d foam. I stamped the words onto the banners and added some Tea Dye Distress Ink before attaching with 3d foam.



Visible Image Queen of Hearts

 

My second card is a Valentine’s card….



Visible Image Queen of Hearts

 

I stamped the Forest background with black Versafine ink before matting onto red and black card. I stamped the sentiment onto another piece of card and trimmed to size, adding a touch of red to the tiny heart,

The Queen and heart jars are coloured with Promarkers and attached with 3d foam.



Visible Image Queen of Hearts

 

My canvas…



Visible Image Queen of Hearts

For my final project I took a 7×5 canvas board and covered with black gesso. I used some white gesso through a diamond mask. Once this was dry I spritzed some gold mica spray over the canvas.

I decoupaged the stamped roses, shaping the petals to create a 3d effect then added some red embossing powder on the bottom edges.



Visible Image Roses

I glued them in place and stamped some of the Drag and Drip stamps underneath and added more red embossing powder.

I made the playing cards with stamps from the Harley Jester set and added Pumice Stone Distress Ink around the edges. These were attached with Pinflair glue gel to create dimension.



Visible Image Queen of Hearts

The queen was coloured with Copics and Promarkers and attached with 3d foam.
