Unicorn Magic

"Unicorn Magic"
This fortnight I have made a card with a new release from 
from the stamp set "Unicorn Magic".

They have 33 new releases altogether! ~ with a lovely mix of images, geometric designs, letters and sentiments.

I fell in love with this set the minute I laid my eyes on it!


This is a simple card with a little stenciling and splattering.

The other night I was watching Visible Image on the Craft and Create show in the UK (you can do almost anything on the internet) and caught a glimpse of this card in the background (along with some others). Amazing!

Such an honour and thrill for me...especially with the time it takes to receive stamps from the half-way around the world, make a card or three, and then send them back...I think I was one very lucky girl!




The stamps used are~

*Visible Image are also at the UK Trade Fair from the 21st - 23rd of Feb.

There are so many new stamps are being released at the moment and I think you are really going to love them.  
My wish list is soooo long!

Enjoy!

Sunrise/Sunset

Sunrise/Sunset
is the theme this month at FSC.

For this theme I immediately thought of a sunset in Africa.
The moon is rising,large and white, over the Serengeti with a solitary tree.
And just in case you couldn't pick that it is in Africa, I've added a couple of animals.



The scene itself is done with distress inks.
The giraffe is done with Inktense pencils...they are new to me and I wanted to have a play with them.  I used watercolour paper so that it wouldn't break up with the more water that I added to it.  

I only had one monkey stamp, so I partially stamped it onto some acetate with Stayzon ink - then flipped it over and did the same on the other side to get a mirror image.  
They were then coloured in using alcohol ink markers.

It was tempting to add more...but I was brave and stopped!

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the same theme.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired, and maybe join in our fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 picked by the DT as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!



Enjoy!

Live In The Moment

New Stamps, New Products!
It is all happening over at Visible Image at the moment...
with lots and lots of new stamps (yummy)
and something else altogether completely new ~ MONOLITHS.

Monoliths are MDF boards which come with a stand.
You can work on both sides.  
~ and that is double the fun!!!
You can even use them as a kind of mood board ~ so either side reflects a different feeling...there are soooo many possibilites...
They are perfect for anything mixed media.
And they come in packs of 5.

Oh, and not so big that you can't use your stamps on it,
in fact...they are specifically designed for our stamps! 

So here is my first MONOLITH.


After I did this I then did the other side ~
and forgot to take a pic.  Sorry about that.

Stamps Used:
Live In The Moment (new ~ & available for pre-order)

This side was sprayed with some mica's from Finnabair,
and the other side was dribbled with some alcohol inks...in similar colours.
I wanted it to be similar, but different - if that makes sense.

The butterflies were stamped onto tissue paper and then applied.
 To finish, I decided to paint around the base and edges with some black gesso...
ooops, sorry, I didn't take that pic either...

Visible Image will be on Create & Craft this Valentine's Day
(11am) for those who would like to see Pauline play with the new products.  
With the time zones, we are 11 hrs ahead here, so I will be tuning in at 10 pm and watching Mark and Pauline ...I still haven't got around to blowing ink around through a Bic pen yet after the last show!  
It is on my to-do list though.

It is absolutely awesome to be able to see what people look like and hear the sound of their voices...
it makes the world that bit smaller I think.

  • SO, new stamps (pre-ordering is under way)
  • new MDF boards
  • Create and Craft on TV (Feb 14th, 11am)
  • and the UK Trade Show (end of Feb)
~ are all things happening with Visible Image over the next few weeks! Busy times!!!  
And it's so exciting to be a part of it all.


Enjoy!
