Visible Image Molly Tag

Morning me lovelies, it is Monday which means Visible Image day from me. 
Today I have created a tag using Molly Rules Stamp Set 
I have coloured Molly using my Spectrum Noirs (list below) 
The background i created using my Dylusions Ink Sprays and some water and then using the stamps from the Molly set I stamped in different colour distress inks, After i stuck Molly down I went around her with black Spectrum Noir to add a border. This was one of those fun getting inking makes…i had actually planned something totally different, but i like the turn this took 🙂 
Pssssttt I hear some new stamps are coming and they are fantastic !!! I know my mixed media and journalling followers will LOVE them, head on over to Facebook Group  for more info.

Afternoon lovelies, I cannot believe it is Thursday already ! where are the days going. 
Today I wanted to share with you a card I made using Fairy Needle image from Mo Manning 
I love Mo’s images, especially her little fairies. 
The lovely Lis did a tutorial some time ago on the Spectrum Noir Blog on colouring on Kraft Card, it can be found here , i thought this image would look great coloured on Kraft and i am really happy with how it turned out…Thank you Lis 🙂 It is coloured of course with my Spectrum Noirs (list below) the papers were scraps (they are Prima papers) that i stitched together using my sewing matching, I then added some rough stitching around the edge of the sentiments. All the edges were then distressed and I added some Broken China Distress ink.

Visible image Thanks so much

Morning lovelies, I hope you all had a lovely weekend 🙂 
It is Monday morning which means Visible Image Day for me. I have been playing with the fantastic More Than Words sets again…Did you know that the lovely Helen writes the poems herself ? 
This week I have used Thank you set…what do you think..
I have created the background using Dylusions Ink Sprays and then stamped the flowers and poem using Black Archival ink. The edge of the card has been stamped using the edge stamp from Jake Skates set . I really do love the More than Words Range because they are so versatile !

Visible Image More than words

Morning lovelies, I hope you all had a nice weekend ? 
It is Monday, which means Visible Image Day for me. 
This week I have made a Sympathy card using the beautiful poem from More Than Words With Sympathy Set and the Forest Background
I wanted a slight distressed look so out came the distress inks for this, I have used Vintage Photo, Tea Dye and Antique Linen, The sentiment was stamped, rough cut and then I used Collall 3D glue to give it some depth. Sounds strange saying this about a sympathy card but I hope you like it. 
Come back tomorrow for all the details on the new Visible Image Challenge for July. 
Happy Crafting 🙂

Bebunni Christmas Table Set

Morning Lovelies, I wanted to share something i made for the recent Bebunni Shows on Create and Craft. 
One of the CD Rom’s is all about the home, and part of it is all about your Christmas Table, I made this set using all elements from the CD/paper kit
The box is covered with one of the A4 papers and I have used one of the Epoxy Stickers on the bow
Included in the box is 4 placemats, 4 napkin rings, coasters & 4 party hats…i thought this could be a lovely gift to someone, or even something nice to have on your own dinner table….i know we will be using it on ours 🙂 
Here is the Napkin Rings, I have printed them onto Centura Pearl with a hint of silver and then to add Dimension I printed another 4 out, cut the circle out, glittered the edges and mounted using Collall 3D glue. 
 This is one of the party hats, all the elements were printed onto Centura Pearl with a hint of silver and embossed using the Embossing folders from the range. I then added a circle topper and bow…brilliant thing about these hats is they have an extra section which can be added for people like me (and Leann) who have lots of hair ! 

This is the Place Mats and Coasters…I was going to emboss the placemats but then realised they should probably be kept as flat as possible ! 
Also on this part of the CD is Christmas Crackers !! I made a set of four, these were meant to be square crackers but i went for something different and made triangle ones 🙂 I glittered the topper and added some Ribbon 
Today is your last chance to grab the four day deal (if it lasts that long !) for those who haven’t seen it yet, the range includes- 
– One twin CD-ROM
– One 6×6″ paper pad
– One A4 paper pad
– Eight A6 unmounted rubber stamp sets
– Poinsettia (which is what I have used above)
– Christmas Story
– With Love at Christmas
– Christmas Present
– Christmas Angel
– Snowy Hugs
– Rudolph
– Figgy Pudd (which I have used above)
– Two 5×7″ embossing folders
– Snowflakes
– Sentiments
– One A4 toppers sheet set (2 sheet pack)
– One A4 decoupage sheet set (2 sheet pack)
– One epoxy stickers set


Of course I would highly recommend getting the whole range if you can stretch to it, i really have had so much fun with it. 

Happy crafting X
