Visible Image Time Flies

Morning lovelies, Saturday means Visible Image day for me. 
This week I decided to do something other than a card and have done 2 mini canvases. 
The canvases have severel different layers of Distress inks, Dylusions and Paint, i then stamped the wings & words…which are all from the brilliant Time after Time stamp set. The wings i coloured using adirondack ink pads and then highlighted some areas using Zig white pen. 
Really happy with how these turned out 🙂

Globecraft & Piccollo Cogs keyring

Morning lovelies 
One of my favorite Globecraft & Piccolo products are Rectangle Acrylic Charms because there is so much you can do with them…including playing around with your Alcohol markers /inks like i have this week. 
The frame comes with the  Rectangle Acrylic Charms and i have given that a rough coat of Copper Kettle 
The acrylic charm i have coloured using my Spectrum Noirs and then flicked with the blending fluid…i love this effect. I have then used the cogs from the Gear Necklace set and have used Vintage Black Embossing Enamel I then glued them all down using Tacky Glue. 
I made this to be used as a keyring, but it could easily be used as a necklace charm.

Visible Image There is always hope and wings

Morning lovelies, I cannot believe it is Saturday again already ! 
I have been playing with the new fantasy stamps from Visible image this week and have made a little hanger
I created the background using my Dylusions and then using the wings from Fae hope set  i stamped onto acetate and coloured them using my Spectrum Noirs, i used the sentiment from the Fae hope set  and stamped that directly onto the hanger. I then gave some shape to the wings and stuck them down with some red liner tape. 
I hope you like my little hanger, I always love how versatile Mark and Helen make their stamps, some of the team have created some AMAZING bits using the new release. 
Don’t forget the current challenge is Anything Goes and you can win £20 to spend on these fab stamps.

Globecraft & Piccolo Heart stencil card.

Morning lovelies. 
I have been using my stencil technique again…original post can be found here 
This time i went for something slightly different and created a coloured base and then stuck the Filigree Heart Accents over the background and sprayed over the card using Black Dylusions and some mica spray.
I then used the Filigree hearts and arranged them on the card. 
What do you think ? 
This picture shows the sheen from the mica. 

Once it was all dry i mounted it onto some black Core’dinations and then onto a card blank. 
Happy crafting 🙂

Halcyon Day’s

Morning lovelies, I cannot beleive it is nearly the weekend already, the days are flying by….but this also means that tomorrow is launch time for the utterly beautiful range from Crafter’s Companion Halcyon days. 
It is being shown as Create & Craft’s Weekender Special and the lovely Sara will be launching it at 9AM GMT tomorrow. 
Here is a couple more of my design team samples i made for the shows
For this card I have used the beautiful Rose Vine embossing folder along with one of the papers from the Paper pad, the topper & Sentiment are from the CD rom….I love this image. 
I have taken one of the shaped cards and created a hanger. I cut the huts out from another shaped card and mounted them using Collall 3D glue, on two of the huts I have cut around the doors and made it so they are open. The bunting & Sentiment are from the CD Rom. I have gone around all the edges with Distress ink. 
Make sure you check out the shows over the weekend, the rest of the DT have created some stunning samples. 
Show times are 
Saturday with Sara-9am, 12pm & 6pm GMT
