Alien Invader by Visible Image

Good morning! Today I am sharing another card using the Alien Invader stamp set from Visible Image . I love this little chap so much. He's great fun to work with. 

This was a really simple card to create. I started with a Distress Oxide inky background, which I darkened further with acrylic ink. 

Next I used a mask and gesso to create a moon, and added some shading with pastels, and stamped the small detail stamp over the top to add texture. 

Some gesso through the Cosmic Skies stencil added more interest. 

Then of course it was simply a case of stamping and colouring the main images and sentiment  and fussy cutting them to create a scene.

Robot Data- Visible Image

Good morning! I am popping by to share a little Visible Image inspiration today using stamps and stencils from the awesome new release.  I cannot get enough of the characters, and these robots are just so much fun! 

The weather has been so awful lately that I wanted to make a bright cheery card to cheer things up a bit with an injection of colour.

I created an inky background by dabbing Dylusions ink onto wet card stock with a brush and lightly spritzing with water to blend. Once dry, I used the Square Route and Short Circuit stencils and distress ink to add another layer of detail. 

Then I stamped some of the background stamps from the Total Chaos stamp set, and finished by heat embossing the circuit board stamp from the set in white, and the small heart in red. 

I coloured the robots ( Robot Data set ) with Copic markers, and fussy cut. 

I also used the teeny little nut stamp to create a flower for my baby robot to be handing her Daddy as a gift , which I mounted on craft wire, and adhered the images with 3D gel glue to my card.

Art Rebel

Oh I do love a bit of random inky play with some added quirky  and the Art Rebel set of stamps from Visible Image definitely hits the quirk in me!

To create this card I started with a background made with Lindy's Magical Shakers. The colours are amazing, with a gorgeous hint of shimmer. 

To add depth and interest I inked through the Meshing Around and Count Me In stencils. 

Then it was time to let loose with some stamping!

Once happy with my background, I stamped the main image on a scrap card with some brushos before mounting to finish.

Captain Awesome- A New Release from Visible Image

I am so thrilled to be sharing my first creation with a set from  the brand new February release from Visible Image . Those of you who have been fans of Visible Image for a long time, may have noticed that the gorgeous space themed stamps are in fact a re release, with some new extras included.  I absolutely adored them the moment I first saw them, so I am so glad that they have made a comeback. They are just perfect for the boys, who are often so tricky to make cards for.

This week I am sharing Captain Awesome . Isn't he a handsome chap!

This card was so easy to create, yet is really effective. I began with sheet of mixed media cardstock , sprayed with Dylusions ink as my base, and a large card die cut star  (the die I used is by Studio Light)

I wanted my star to really sparkle, and have texture, so I covered the greyboard in silver texture paste, stippled on with a hard brush, and then sprinkled over Fairy Dust  Wow embossing powder .

I then applied heat to melt the powder. The texture paste bubbles up, so it is important to keep the gun moving at this point, allowing it to rise and then re settle. 

While this cooled thoroughly, I slattered wwhite paint over the background to create a starry sky, and stamped and embossed the tiny satellite stamps. 

I stamped and coloured Captain Awesome and his rocket with Copic markers, and stamped the rocks and earth on a scrap of card previously used as a mop up sheet, then fussy cut them all. 

I adhered the star to the centre before gluing on the other elements to finish. He really is AWESOME!!

I really did have a blast making this. I can't wait to share more creations with you from this amazing release soon.

Tree of Life by Visible Image

Today's share is a card using the some great nature based stamps from Visible Image . I don't know about you, but getting outside and feeling close to nature really helps lift my spirits, allows me time and space to reflect and gives me a real sense of inner peace. This card was made to reflect that. 

I started with a background created by mopping up distress oxides. They make for the perfect stormy sky don't you think? So much texture- yummy! 

When dry, I used my 6" gelli plate and the strobes stencil to create a sunburst effect, by using the plate as a stamp once I had brayered paint through it. 

I used a die cut circle and sponged oxide inks on to create a sun, and stamped and heat embossed the Tree of Life stamp in the centre. The leaves were then coloured with watercolour pens. 

I added a line of trees from the Into The Woods set, stamped in Versafine ink, darkened the edges to add focus to the centre,  then with 3D glue gel mounted the sun and sentiment to finish.

A Visible Image Style Art Journal

Good morning! It's my turn to share a little Visible Image inspiration with you all, and for this weeks project I have created a journal for playing in with all my favourite stamps. 

I love the Sizzix  journal dies by Eileen Hull and used the Pocket Notebook cut from greyboard. I knew I wanted to use a inks etc on it, and so wanted to cover it with mixed media cardstock. This is best to do prior to cutting, and using double sided A4 adhesive sheets to get full and firm coverage. With both sides covered I then ran it through my Bigshot.

I used See Everything as my focal image and stamped and embossed it on the face of my journal. As I planned to use spray ink, I masked off the eye and white circles with masking fluid. Once dry I was able to go to town with my inks. 

Once dry ( allow to dry naturally) , I added depth with the Two Tone stencil, in co ordinating Distress Ink., and added some background stamping for more detail. 

When dry I was able to rub off the masking fluid and colour the details.

The Dreamer sentiment is from the Own It set, and I added a little quote from Brighten The World on the front too. Ont the back I added another quote from the brilliant Voices In Your Head set.

Of course I couldn't create a journal and not make a start on my signatures to go inside. Here's the first page. 

And the stamps I used to create it of course!

I am really looking forward to filling this up over time - with all things Visible Image of course!

Write the Next Chapter

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that Christmas was kind to you and your new years celebrations went with a bang. I opted to spend mine quietly crafting, and came up with this quick card using stamps from Visible Image. It's a great sentiment to see in the new decade, but could also be used for someone who has been having a tough time as a show of support. 

This was super easy to create, and I got so carried away in the craft zone that I forgot to take step by steps, so do forgive me, but here are the stages.

Step 1- stamp the girl in Versafine in on a 5x7" watercolour blank. 
Step 2- Carefully watercolour the background around her and leave to dry.
Step 3- Stamp and heat emboss the typewriter in black and fussy cut. Add the 'You are loved ' sentiment to the paper. 
Step 4- Stamp hearts around where the typewriter will sit and colour with Posca pen. Stamp main sentiment. 
Step 5- Colour the main image using watercolour markers.
Step 6- adhere typewriter using 3D glue.

The stamp sets used were:

I hope 2020 bring you all good health , and lots of crafty time! 

Happy New Year
