I really think these will take your colouring to another level and cannot recommend them enough…I was very silly and only got the Essentials set, but I will be purchasing the other sets.

Just look at how they bring this card to life. 
  
Now what if I told you that you can make them yourself, to any size or shape you want ? 
Well with 3D Enamel Gel you can !!!! and the best bit is….its so easy ! and works out so much cheaper than the premade ones. 
All you need to do is get yourself a craft sheet/Teflon sheet 
and let your imagination run wild, you can create dots like I have here…..
Or you can create hearts, write words or even make enamel swirls ! I always leave mind to dry overnight just to make sure they are completely dry, then I curl the craft sheet and peel them away. 
You can even do a batch lot (which is what I do) and store them for future use. 
Here is a little close up of them on the card….
How ace are they ? and just think of everything you can create ! 
I have used the following Enamel Gels- 
I hope I have inspired you, we would love to see what you create with the 3D Enamel Gels.

New challenge at Visible image Love

Hiya everyone….this is one of two Visible image posts for me this morning. 
This is my first challenge post as part of the Visible image team !! And what a fab first challenge for it is. 
The theme is Love and one lucky person will receive £20 to spend on fab Visible image stamps 
Here is my design team make for the challenge:
 I have used the beautiful Chandelier set for this, but i decided to go with some nice soft pinks and browns, I have also used Mens Collage stamp on the center strip of card. 
This picture shows the glimmer to the mica powders. This is such a simple technique but I love the results. 
I have just added a few flowers, some ribbon and gemstone hatpins. This is such an elegant stamp set I really don’t think you need to add a lot to it.

Mixing Embossing powders.

Hi all, 
I wanted to share with you a Pendant that I have made this week. 
And here is how i created it…
First of all let me tell you what you will need- 
Black UTEE (Ultra thick Embossing Enamel)
Leather Cord
From the Fine Feathers Necklace set you need your pendant, one of the feathers…I later decided to add one of the swirls to. 
Using your Black UTEE & Enamel and Embossing powder Adhesive coat the pendant, I gave this 3 coats, but 3 probably would have given a smoother coating…it is personal preference. .if you have never used UTEE before It is slightly different when melting, it will “bead” and looking like you have melted it wrong, don’t worry, it will then melt fully into a lovely thick enamel. 
Anyone with a Melt Pot, this Black UTEE would be perfect to use with your Melt Pot. 
Now one thing i love with Embossing powders is that you don’t have to stick with just one colour, I LOVE Enamel Powder BAHAMA AQUA, but i wanted to “break” it up slightly for this, so in a small pot I mixed it with Black UTEE , when doing this test your “new” colour on some scrap paper first to make sure you are happy with the result. 
Take your feather (and Swirl) and Coat with Enamel and Embossing powder Adhesive
Give it a nice thick coating with your powder mix and melt using your heat tool…again I gave this 2 coats. 
I then dabbed some Enamel and Embossing powder Adhesive over where i wanted the feather and swirl to be and put a sprinkle of  Black UTEE and melted it with my heat tool, then using tweezers (its very hot so please use tweezers) I pushed my feather and swirl into the Enamel, then when it sets it will act a glue…you can see her that they are pushed into the enamel. 
Attach a cord and you are done. 
Here is another look at the finished pendant. 
Don’t forget to head on over to Globecraft &Piccolo Facebook Page to share your creations, and pick up some inspiration.

Visible image…Jingle Jingle

Earlier this week I let out a little squeal of delight when this little fella dropped through my letterbox this week..
I have been so excited since we got shown Harley  that I couldn’t wait to get started crafting with him, and here is what I have made (so far, trust me i have lots of ideas for this fella)
I decided to make a stepper card. I coloured Harley using my Spectrum Noirs (list at bottom of post) I was going to go for bright colours but decided to go with Playing card colours instead. 
Everything you see stamp wise is included with the Harley Set  so it is fantastic value for money…and I love that you can make your own playing cards !!! 

Here is a close up so you can see Harley and also the dimension of the card.

Here is my second make with Harley

I went with a blue and orange combo for this card.
The card is a 6×6 card.
The backing paper was made using Broken China Distress ink and then stamped using the Joker stamp from the Harley Set .
I coloured Harley with my Spectrum Noirs and then used the stars from Jake Skates Stamp Set.
I then added a ribbon and a bell.

 I just love the possibilities of this set ! And of course being Visible image it stamps perfectly everytime.

Head on over to the Visible Image Blog  to check out what the rest of the talented team have been up to, and also check out the current challenge whilst you are there.
