Visible image tag time….

Morning all….it is Saturday which means Visible Image time ! 
I have created a tag this week….
I decided as it was so dark and gloomy at the moment to go for some nice bright colours. 
The background was created using the super versatile 
 Which I stamped on top of distress ink and clear embossed, I then sprayed over the whole tag using Dylusions inks. 
I then Stamped the following sets using pigment ink
I then used some clear embossing powder to give them some shine. 
I then used some white dylusion to flick across the tag. 
This shows just how fab these Ink Splats are.

Frame card

Hiya all, 
I wanted to show you how beautiful the Piccolo Frames look when used on a card. 
Here is what I have created: 
And here is how I created it.

First of all here is all the items you will need-

Cardstock cut to 10×8″ and folded in half for your card blank, and a Piece of watercolour card cut to 4×3″
Paper & Ribbon of your choice
Inkpad for Background & Stamping
Cut your card blank, and also make sure your piece of water colour card fits well behind the frame. 
Using blue Distress ink cover your Watercolour card, you want this too be patchy as represents the Sky. 
A good tip I use is to give a light spray of water over the top of the card, this helps “soften” the distress ink and makes it look more sky like. 
 Take your frame that comes with your Butterfly Flurry Flourishes Piccolo Set and give a nice layer of  Enamel & Embossing Powder Adhesive Fluid
Apply a nice thick layer of  Mermaid Tears Embossing Powder…I love how this picture shows all the beautiful colours in this powder. Tap off the excess & set with your heat tool. 
Take the butterflies from the Butterfly Flurry Flourishes Piccolo Set and emboss with Mermaid Tears Embossing Powder
Take the Tall Grassy Flowers Stamp and stamp up your card. 
I used Green Distress ink for this. 
Once stamped I then used Aged White Embossing Powder on the heads of the flower grass and sprainkled some across the bottom, heat set this from underneath your card. 
Glue your frame and butterflies to your watercolour card. 
Assemble your card using your paper, ribbon & frame.  Here is a closer look at the Flowers & Butterflies. 
Finishing touch is done using the brilliant Satin Silver 3D Enamel Gel , put 3 dots in the corner of your card. 
And here is the finished card again. I do hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial.

Globecraft & Piccolo …He who holds the key

Hiya everyone, its Tuesday so that mean Globecraft & Piccolo time. 
Now as Valentines day is creeping up I decided to spread a little bit of love and make a Vintage style Pendant using one of the awesome Acrylic Craft Charms
I am really happy how this turned out. Here is how I made it…
1. I made my own backing paper (It reads he who holds the key to my heart) and crumpled it up and then distressed it and rubber some gold wax around the edges, this was then glued onto the Bezel
2. I then took one of the hearts from Keys to my Heart Piccolo set give it two layers of Ruby Red Slippers Enamel Powder…The below picture shows just how beautiful this Enamel powder is. 
3. I also used one of the keys from Keys to my heart Piccolo Set and used Copper Kettle Enamel Powder…I only gave this one rough layer as I wanted it to have an old look to it

4. I then took Instant UV resin and put a fine layer down and placed the heart and key into it, I then left it on my window sil for a few mins to set, i then gave it another coat and again left on window sil to set….I love this product ! A definite must have, I wanted a old look to this whole thing so was very “rough” with how i applied the resin, I also wanted to create a look like you get with Amber and you have items floating and bubbles etc…I was very wary about doing it but I think it has work just how i pictured it would. 
This picture shows just how fab the shine is on the resin. I simply then added some vintage ribbon to finish it off. 

 Now between me and you I have seen there is some new items over on the website so make sure you check them out.
Also don’t forget we have some brilliant inspiration from the rest of the team post regularly so make sure you keep checking back on the Globecraft & Piccolo Blog
Happy Crafting 🙂
